Wednesday 17 May

Sorry, there was no blog yesterday we had a very long and involved Professional development Team Meeting on "Learner Qualities" with Kate de Groot.

How to teach children to go from Good to Great learners through the use of such things as :thinking, being determined, having self awareness (how you are impacting on others as well as yourself to learn better) adapting to circumstances, reflecting on what is happening and how you can improve your learning, connect ( how what you alreadu know can help you know something you didn't know or realise, and question ( beactive in your learning by asking, answering, wondering).

Level 1 of Te Aho Arataki Maori the Maori curriculum for Year 1 to 13.

Part of our Curriculum is Te Reo Maori. This document has all the components that we are to teach at Primary school.

We are starting testing to confirm children are on track across the subjects of reading, writing and Maths. This is the Gloss test sheet where we record strategies that children use to solve equations,

Such as 1/2 of 14 lollipops, 1/4 of 16 cakes.
