Look at how well we work together!!

As part of our "skills for growing" unit we have been learning how to work cooperatively with others to achieve a common goal. 
Sometimes this is quite challenging but we are learning how to listen respectfully to each others ideas, support each other and take turns talking.
We had to cross a POISONOUS river without falling in and use the Grass Skies to navigate our way around a course.
This was all so much easier to do when we worked together!!

Our Learning Year 2013

What a brilliant start to the learning year we have had!!
I can tell that we are going to have a fantastic year together.
 Some of the highlights of the last few weeks for me have been:
  • Watching you try to get across the river of poison on the lily pads!! What a great test of cooperation and teamwork.
  • Listening to the kind, supportive and encouraging language you use towards each other.
  • Seeing how enthusiastic you are towards your learning.
  • Seeing the amazing art work that we have displayed around our room.
What has been your highlight so far?
Write 5 words that describe how you feel about first 2 weeks of school.

Welcome to 2013

Check out our awesome Koru Art
The students each created a strip using korus to represent their family members. They were then woven together to show how we are united as one.
What do you think of our wonderful work?
