Week 4

This week we have Science Alive coming to visit us here at school. They will be teaching us about Buildings and Structures as part of the ignition for our inquiry topic for this term. Each homebase has a two hour session. 
Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to help us out. the children will require support to help design and build their structures. We sill share some photos of what is created later in the week. 

Tuesday 23rd: Kahikatea 16 and 17 have the first session from 9:30-11:30 am
                         Kahikatea 15 and 18 have the second session at 1:00-3:00pm

Also another friendly reminder can you please double check with your child they have all the necessary stationary requirements for school: e.g. pencils, pens, rulers, white board markers they are such consumable classroom items. We are also getting near the half way mark for the year when some new school books are required. Thanks for supporting us with this is just makes our life so much easier in the classroom.

Buildings and Structures

Kahikatea 15 and 16 initiated our inquiry topic by brainstorming all the things that we already knew about buildings and stuctures. Then we recorded our ideas on mini hexagons. After that we had to make connections between our ideas and group them together, explaining why we thought they belonged in a particular group. We found that some of our groups could then be connected together. Finally we presented our findings.
