As part of our Tui Team day, we created a piece of collaborative art. Everyone had a hand in its creation. Today Room 11 finished it off. Keep an eye out for it in the next few days.
Over the past week we have been getting to know each other really well in our classrooms, but today Room 11, 12 and 13 came together to get to know each other as members of Tui Team! Throughout the year, the children in Tui Team will have many opportunities to not only to collaborate with the children in their own classrooms, but also with children across our team. Therefore, to 'ignite' this concept the children were put into small mixed-class teams to complete a variety of tasks that required team work and creativity. One of these tasks was to spell out the words "Tui Team" by using objects found in the classroom (unfortunately, we couldn't use any objects from outside due to the rain!). Check out our fantastic creations in the slideshow below!
As part of our first week in Room 11, we looked at what we thought was the best part of us. They ranged from brains to eyes and hand to abs - we had to explain why these parts were important, ranging from seeing beautiful things to keeping us fit and strong. Come into class and check out other great reasons.
As part of developing our class culture and getting to know each other, Room 13 have created an 'Introducing Me' slide in Google Slides. These presentations share a little about ourselves as they include a profile picture, our name, three adjectives that we feel best describe us along with some pictures to show our interests. Everyone worked really hard to produce their Slide, especially the Year 3's who hadn't used Google Slides before! The Year 3's were very thankful to have the help of the Year 4's who offered support and tips when needed.
We are excited to get into our learning for 2018. Our focus for Term 1 is 'Diversity'; looking at the ways we are all different, and how these differences are of benefit to us all.
We have 3 classes in Tui Team (Rooms 11 to 13). These are:
Room 11 (Year 3/4) - Mrs Melissa Blignault
Room 12 (Year 3/4) - Mrs Caitlin Neal
Room 13 (Year 3/4) - Mr Caleb Rosamond (Learning Leader)
