Preparing and Celebrating Matariki

This week, we have taken a bit of time out of our Egyptian Inquiry to investigate the upcoming Maori New Year: Matariki.

We have been looking at the constellations and how Maori celebrate in the past and today.

Here are some of the legends of Matariki:

Virtual Tours of Egypt

We might need to check out what we are discovering about Ancient Egypt. Can we find the Book of the Dead in the British Museum?

A morning in Kepler

Waiata and roll on the mat:


FIE: 
Looking at symbols around us. FIE is all about symbols. 


Fitness: 
This week the students have chosen 'All-in-tag' for our fitness game. Notice how we are all running around, following the rules and being self managing. 


Writing:
See how we are all on task and focussed on our writing. The independent learners have more choice of where they can work but we all need to do our best.



Reading:
We were looking at a comprehension strategy.... to help you understand what you read. Draw a picture in your mind. 


FIE - getting started

Our team is beginning to look at the FIE or Feuerstein Instructional Enrichment....

We have started by playing a cool game to help us see and read some of the many symbols we see around us every day.
