I AM A SCIENTIST Our Inquiry For Term 2 Learning theme: ‘If it doesn’t Challenge you - it won’t change you’ BIG Question - As a scientist how do I investigate change in my world? MINDSET - I am a scientific problem solver! Big understandings As a Friend /Hei hoa As a Learner/Hei ākonga As a Guardian/hei Kaitiaki I can work collaboratively (work together for a common goal) I can respect and respond to the opinions of others. I can explain scientific concepts I can apply a growth mindset in Science (reflect, persevere, take up challenge, try new strategies) I understand how science can affect people and my environment I can use my knowledge of science to make decisions (to tackle an issue)
With my new learning, I can create change in our world Have a look at our Inquiring Minds at work. Some of these photos were taken BEFORE school had even started for the day!!!

We invite families to attend a blessing of our new Classroom Upgrade Monday 16th May @ 9.30am Come along and see what learning looks like in 2016 We will be inviting parents of Team Rua children to an evening meeting later in the term to share the Innovative Learning Environment and what it means to teaching and learning in 2016 Education for children is evolving. We are moving out of the "single cell" model of teaching and growing a more "collaborative" model of teaching and learning. Our children are learning to take a greater ownership of what they want to learn - when they want to learn and who they want to learn it with.
