Nga Mihi in room 10.

This term Rachel France has been working with room 10 on Thursdays. Our focus in the last few weeks has been on Nga Mihi or greetings.

The Mihimihi is a talk that introduces a person. It describes things like where a person is from and who their family members are. In this way learning mihimihi has strong links to our current inquiry work on citizenship. The students need to know the names of their grandparents for this activity.

Liam and Mr.Austin included their Mihimihi as examples.

Small science homework activity!

Hi guys,
neat science show today- here are some pics.
I want you to watch the videos- click the links.

Our question: How does a plane stay in the air?

Write down 10 key words then use these as you explain how a plane stays up. Practice your talk with some one at home and then we will share at school. Don't worry if its a bit confusing- we will talk about at school.

I have a few cool experiments we can do as we learn.

Links are below the pics.
