Hiwi the Kiwi

This week we had a visit from the FANTASTIC Mr and Mrs Minstrel. They helped us to understand how we can;
  • Be safe while fishing on a boat- ALWAYS WEAR A LIFE JACKET!!!
  • The importance of measuring our fish to ensure that they are the LEGAL size. Fish that are too small or to big should be returned to our ocean so that they can breed (sustainability).
  • Always use a wet towel when handling fish. This helps to protect their scales. Consider fish scales to be like our sun block.
  • The dangers of plastic and the negative effects it has on our birds and sea life.
We all learnt a lot from this show. Thanks so much to Mr & Mrs Minstrel for the information and entertainment.

We LOVE making MISTAKES!!!!!

Throughout this term, we have been learning about having a 'Growth mindset'. We have been watching a lot of videos about the 'Power of YET'. Soooooooo much to learn. Our brains have done heaps of EXERCISE this term and we will continue to engage in BRAIN workout sessions daily.

In Room 6, we CELEBRATE making MISTAKES. As a teacher, I have had to practice CELEBRATING my MISTAKES with my class. I am very pleased that I have a very supportive class, who have helped me out when I have needed support.

Please enjoy looking at our padlet about MISTAKES.

If you have a POSITIVE BRAIN/MISTAKE message that you would like to share then please include it in a comment.
