Mauria Te Pono – Term 2

Talofa, Kia orana and greetings….

In Mauria Te Pono we have been studying the following topics:

Math: students discussed how angles are used in everyday situations and why we need to have a solid knowledge of them.  We have also been learning multiplication strategies and how to multiply using decimals in some of our small learning groups.

Writing:  We have been using language to persuade the reader and some students wrote persuasive texts about ‘Why the haka should remain as part of New Zealand’s identity during sports matches’ and ‘why students should wear a school uniform’.

Inquiry: Students used ICT to present their findings around the importance of Water.  These were very interesting and our students put a great deal of hard work and planning in to their tasks.  Well done to our inquiring students !

Jade Speaks: We have set up a positive environment where we can support each other and discuss issues around keeping ourselves safe.  It is great to see that our students can work together and help one another when needed.

Upcoming Events – Get along and support your classmates at the SUPA Motown concert this Thursday 6 July, at 6.30 pm in the school hall.  Almost half of our class will be singing, dancing and acting, so get along and support whanau !

Congratulations – Team Kotahitanga are doing a great job at fitness and are making a great TEAM effort, keep it up everybody !
