Bat Boxes

What a fantastic day we had! Mr Tonga, from Natsync Environmental, visited our classroom to help us make some bat boxes. He had cut out the pieces we needed and it was our job to glue and screw them together (we even got to use electric drills!). Mrs N was very impressed with how well we worked together. Mr Tonga took the boxes and installed them in trees close to the school. Some of them will have cameras installed, so the number of bats using the boxes can be monitored. It's very exciting to think that our handywork will benefit scientific study!

Here's our artwork from yesterday. We made it by drawing on sheets of foam, covering it with paint and pressing it onto paper. We think they look terrific!

Also, a very big CONGRATULATIONS to Taj and his family on the safe arrival of a new little sister, called Tanaia. She was born on Tuesday night and Taj is a very, very proud big brother.
