In Kakapo class we have been learning all about the brain. Today we got into groups. Each group was given a different part of the brain to focus on. Cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, amygdala and the temporal/occipital lobes.
Each group had to read through and choose the information that related to 'their' part of the brain. After identifying this information the groups dicussed which information was important. They conducted further research to answer any questions they had or anything that they may not have understood.
THEN... Mrs Cutler gave each group playdough. Each group had a different colour. The task was to use the playdough to create their part of the brain into a 3D model. For this each group had to collaborate further to check position, scale and to join them up to build our brain.

It is that time of year again!
Despite all the rain, the mud, the slips, the road closures the track on Mrs Cutlers farm was not muddy at all! While we missed the mud a little bit the weather was awesome and we had so much fun.
We are one of the few schools to still hold our own cross country races on a 'real' track. Something we are very proud of 😁 We support each other, cheer on our whanau groups, encourage and celebrate in everyones personal successes. There is always tuakana teina too when the littlest children in the school run.

We are back and ready to carry on the great learning we had begun in Term 2.
This term we are lucky enough to have a student teacher, Mr Hobson, with us for the entire term.
Though this is our most normal term of the year so far, we have a very busy time ahead with speeches & cross country and lots of other tournaments
How is your term going so far?
