Here is the link that shows the presentations from Tuakana’s learning about New Zealand Land Wars this term.
Wow! We had a huge turnout of support from our community at our celebration of learning last evening. Our goals for this evening were to:
- Prepare celebration of learning presentation related to values – for our community
- Showcase agentic learning in action for the community in a variety of ways
- Continue to support a range of connections, communications with parents, caregivers, whanau and the community
Tamariki Potiki shared a simple mihi Whakatau to welcome us all, followed by a play they had written, about Zacchaeus.
Tamariki Teina shared the various ways they had chosen to learn about and share our school values. Lots of our families watched their presentations and asked them questions.
Tamariki Tuakana presented their investigations into Aotearoa New Zealand Histories. Visiting parents and families listened to their commentaries, read through their presentations, watched their videos and asked them tricky questions, for example, “Do you think it was fair?” (The Treaty of Waitangi). The children were impressive in the knowledge they were able to share and their understanding of the complexities of our country’s history.
Thank you to all of the children, the teachers and our families for supporting this evening – designed to bring our community back together after a long and difficult year of not being able to hold community events.
Thank you to our busy bees: Zinna, Malia, Ivy and Stephanie for being spotted following our school rules! You are great role models!
With the focus of the year being ‘he waka eke noa’ (We’re all in this together) Teina has been looking at the school values of Aroha and Tika. Together we have been exploring the different ways we can show aroha and tika around school. In groups we created the perfect recipe which we strongly believe would make the best class!
In Potiki we have been working on being kind and sharing and working collaboratively with others. We have made jelly, wrote together in groups, made bead necklaces, and helped others make origami cups. During learning through play we have learnt about magnets and discovered what they can do. We have been painting waves for our waka and making collage crosses for Lent.
