  1. Kia ora, I am a year 5 my names is Ihaka & i enjoyed the kids connect 2 show last Friday. I have brought back 2 plants that i will care for a t kura. Thank you for the great day out.

  2. This game is a fantastic xmas gift. It will amuse your children for hours. When I was relief teaching I taught the game to a class of 8-9 year olds and they absolutely loved it! We had a ‘Native bird’ themed day. The students researched a bird and shared their findings with the class. I went to the library and was able to get around thirteen books on Native birds. The children chose an image of a bird and we developed them into pencil sketches on black paper. The results were amazing. My own knowledge of New Zealand birds and predators went on a huge growth curve. Well done Jil, your game rocks! Chrissie
