Relating to others

Relating to others is about interacting effectively with a diverse range of people in a variety of contexts. This competency includes the ability to listen actively, recognise different points of view, negotiate, and share ideas.

Students who relate well to others are open to new learning and able to take different roles in different situations. They are aware of how their words and actions affect others. They know when it is appropriate to compete and when it is appropriate to co-operate. By working effectively together, they can come up with new approaches, ideas, and ways of thinking.

2022 Term 1 Maths: Geometry: Level 3

  • Posted on: 28 February 2022
  • By: MelvaGill

In these workshops, students will learn how to;

Shape
1) Classify plane shapes and prisms by their spatial features.
2) Represent objects with drawings and models.

Transformation
3) Describe the transformations (reflection, rotation, translation, or enlargement) that have mapped one object onto another.

This will be achieved through using mathsbuddy three times a week, and three sessions in groups to recognise and identify features of 2 and 3-dimensional shapes. We will create nets to represent this new learning.

2022 Term 1 Maths: Geometry: Level 2

In these workshops, students will learn how to;

Shape
1) Sort objects by their spatial features, with justification.
2) Identify and describe the plane shapes found in objects.

Transformation
3) Predict and communicate the results of translations, reflections, and rotations on plane shapes.

This will be achieved through using mathsbuddy three times a week, and three sessions in groups to recognise and identify features of 2 and 3-dimensional shapes. We will create nets to represent this new learning.

2022 Term 1: Tūranagwaewae: Reading Level 4 Melva

  • By: MelvaGill

We will focus on one text in depth three times a week.
The LA will read with the children and support the modelling of decoding and comprehension strategies.
Students also use independent reading skills, where they apply the strategies they have learned over the week.
Guided reading session will use the Sharp Reading strategy to support students to read aloud together and individually share comprehension and then one of four follow up strategies:
visualization, links to prior learning, links to text, predictions.

We will focus on one text three times week in depth to support learning from structured lit workshops.
I will read to the children and model decoding and comprehension strategies.
We will read together out loud and discuss the text.
Finally, students will end the week with independent reading, where they apply the strategies they have learned over the week.

Create A Podcast

Why do you want to do this?
I really like listening to podcasts and I also think there are a huge number of topics that are fascinating and interesting that I thought I could explore by creating a podcast. I also have so many different thoughts that run through my brain on a daily basis so thought making a podcast would allow me to info dump or talk about the things in my brain.
What will you learn during this goal/SDL?

term 1 2022 - hb Waipapa inquiry pathway

This term our inquiry and special interest learning will look like many things! As we start the term it will focus on Core Value exploration as we settle into our new group dynamic. We will also look to answer specific questions on a range of contexts, that come from the children as the term progresses. Our focus will be on small, manageable "mimi inquiries" where we identify a specific question and work to answer it, developing our understanding of the inquiry process and of tools we can use to help these explorations.

2022 term 1 maths - geometry and fractions

  • Posted on: 21 February 2022
  • By: MelFisk

We will start our maths exploration this year by looking at aspects of geometry, with a focus on symmetry (reflective, translation and rotational) and 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. We will also engage in learning around fractions, building our understandings around fractions as a parts of a whole, be it a singular unit or a set.
