Our whole school integrated inquiry topic is 'Learning to Learn' and we have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and working out how things happen in Room 6. We've discussed what an effective thinking and learning environment should look like, sound like and feel like. We have also listed the great things we do and from this information we created our very own classroom expectations. Whaea Jeanette enlarged it to A2 size, we signed the contract, it was then laminated and is now on display in Room 6 (A).
We also worked in four groups to brainstorm then share ideas about Whakaaro Pai, our school I Care Philosophy and what we actually do to care for ourselves, others, property and our environment. The task required we come up with just three main ideas for each area. This information has been typed up and is also displayed in Room 6 (A) surrounding our classroom expectations.
