Mindfulness take two

Every Wednesday morning from 9am-9.45am Whaea Kat teaches us mindfulness. This was our second session and we are doing really well at it.
We learn about mindful breathing, mindful moving, mindful eating and many other practises. Last week we talked about gratitude and this week we learnt about happiness. 
Ask us about how it makes us feel and remind us to pause, breathe, smile! 



Joe Harawira

We went by bus to the Hamilton City pop up library to listen to Joe Harawira tell us stories in Te Reo. He was a fantastic story teller and even explained his Ta Moko to us which was very interesting.
CHECK OUT OUR BLOGS to see what we learnt from Joe.

Remembering how to be cybersmart...

We are remembering how to use technology for our learning the best we can.
Here are some things you should/shouldn't do:

  • Only use links from the blog (or ones our teachers have shared with us).
  • No youtube (unless it is a link from a teacher).
  • Keep your passwords and personal details to yourself.
  • Appropriate language at all time.
  • Only use your email for learning purposes at school and at home.
  • Make sure you are doing the right learning.
  • No social media.
  • Only the school logo and school photos can be your pictures.
  • Don't talk to people you don't know.
  • G-Suite is for learning only.

So much fun to be had at break times!!!



Something exciting is coming soon...

Oral Language

Being able to talk with others is an important skill to have...so is being able to LISTEN. During oral language time we practice doing both of these in a variety of ways. Here we had to come up with rules as a group on how we were going to take turns, how long we would talk for and how to show good listening skills.
