Check out what's happening in our learning!

Here is a live feed of our learning. Each of the students in the Flying Niners have an individual SeeSaw blog. This is the place we share our learning, give and get feedback and feed forward and show how we are going with our goals.

 Every second Friday we look forward to discovery. This term discovery is planned around Kawenga.
We are focusing on taking responsibility of the resources, being responsible for our actions and behaviours while enjoying learning through play.

Hiwi the Kiwi with The Minstrel

Today we had a visit from the Minstrel. We loved singing and dancing with him. 

He told us lots about how to look after kaimoana and 'fish for the future'. 

He also shared some good tips for staying safe in the water. 

We really enjoyed the show and can't wait to share what we learned withour  whanau.

Are you a self Managing learner?

We have been doing some thinking around being a self managing learner. It started with our treaty and as the term has gone on we found some more ideas about how we can be "the best ME I can be".
This are the things we think are important in being a good learner and apart of a team.

Wonderful Portraits

We finally have our Portraits completed and ready for the wall. Come in and check them out some time.

Is it easier to give or follow instructions?

On Fridays we do a listening activity. Today we took turns giving and following instructions. We got in pairs and built something out of Lego. We had to give clear, specific instructions to our buddy as they couldn't see. Afterwards we reflected on if it was easier to give the instructions or follow instructions. We discovered that if we are the youngest in the family we found it easier to follow instructions.

Fraction Friday's

We have been having fun with fractions on Fridays. 
We have learnt halves and quarters of shapes and sets.
We have learnt how to draw and write fractions.
We found it interesting that half can be made in many different ways. We explored this with Lego and playdough.
We learnt the relationship between halves and doubles.
We learnt words like fair, equal, denominator and numerator.
We learnt that the bigger the denominator the smaller the fraction.
We learnt fractions are FUN!
