Anne Frank

To help us understand the impact of Anne Frank's writing we went to Te Papa to have a look at the exhibition. For many of us it was the first time on a train, first time at Te Papa, first time on a cable car. We had a blast.

We have learnt so much about the impact of Anne's writing on the world, and what life was like for her. We have been busy creating documentaries of our discoveries. Watch this space and our e-portfolios.

Weekly Reflection 1.3.10

Guess What?
Our goal was to listen to each other when we are talking in our groups. Well we haven’t quite reached our goal yet. Some people are still talking over others. The things that stood in our way were that everyone had things that they wanted to share, this week we are going to take turns at talking by going around in our groups.

Relay, Tramp, Marshmallow Pit, Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Porridge Race, Team Building, Touch, ate lollies, went for a run, balloon game, skits, Art, Movie maker, audacity to mix music, spot light, cricket, glow worms, sleeping.
So What?
We have learnt confidence when in group situations. It has helped us become a more effective learner because we can talk to others, ask for help, to take up future opportunities, build your leadership.

Now What?
We are still working on listening to each other. Next week we are going to take turns.
