Yesterday we went with our syndicate to Wellington to visit Te Papa (our national museum) and the Museum of City and Sea. This was to tie into our school wide topic of Citizenship. We were looking at the Passport exhibition in Te Papa which gave lots of interesting information about migration to NZ. At the Museum of City and Sea we saw lots of history and stories about people coming to NZ. We finished off with a visit to Frank Kitts Park and played 'How many people can we fit onto the slide?'.
Luckily we got home before the mini-tornado hit the city, which was a huge relief. Read about it here http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/local/3443289/Southerly-buster-hits-Wellington. It was totally amazing, hope I never see a full blown tornado!
