Burravoe Primary School

Michaels Wood


On Wednesday we went to Michael’s Wood. It is in Eid. When we got there we put our rubbers on and piked up our food and went to picnic table and had lunch. After lunch we looked at the trees which were small but still the same effect. We walked on and then there was a box full of cars and a car mat so we played. We followed the path and read a joke on a sign then went to the Teddy bears picnic. There were teddy statues which was the perfect place to take pictures of Stripe but then all the little ones wanted pictures too and Lucy and Kay as well. We left the teddy bears picnic and went to the bird hide where we spied for birds but no luck. There were toys that made the real bird sound and a visitor book so we signed it and went really far up and went down to a pirate ship for play. I bet you can guess what we played! We played then we went to a pond with gold fish, frogs and koi carp. There was no gold fish or koi carp but there was some frog spawn. We played some more then switched our shoes and went home.

  2. Dear Burravoe School
    it seems that you had a lovely day for your visit to Michaels Wood, and you managed to fit so many activities in!

    I wonder what kind of birds you were hoping to see?

    In our local woods we would hope to see kereru (pigeons), piwakawaka (fantails), weka (the wood hen) and maybe a tui (sometimes known as the parson bird because it has a tuft of white feathers on its neck).

    Our class mascot, Quicksilver, is a kea, but we wouldn’t see any of them unless we went higher into the mountains.

    all the best
    from Mrs McKenzie
