Tī Kōuka – ‘Pondering?’ This term we will be taking a moment to ponder –
1. think about (something) carefully, especially before making a decision or reaching a conclusion…and in our case, before we go to google.
We will be looking at how the world sees us, our image and how we maintain that within our own environment. We will be focussing on the garden, we have already weeded a big patch and planted sunflowers. Our measurement, geometry and statistics will all be integrated into this focus. We are doing science experiments, growing sunflowers, beans and cress in different places and acknowledging and anticipating possible outcomes.
We will be continuing our friendship theme and focussing on The Zones of Regulation. This is a framework for teaching students strategies for emotional and sensory self-management. The Zones approach uses four colors to help students identify how they are feeling in the moment given their emotions and level of alertness, as well as guide them to strategies to support regulation. By understanding how to notice their body’s signals, detect triggers, read social context and consider how their behavior may impact those around them, students learn improved emotional control, sensory regulation, self-awareness and problem-solving abilities.
We are also beginning to train hard for our BP athletics day. Our Year 3 students have the opportunity to be over at the Domain and are excited about learning new skills for this…Andi Cochrane & Tracey Wright
