Check out the difference in the rubbish from last Thursday to this Thursday!

What a load of Rubbish!!

Yesterday the Year 5 and 6 Team got together to take a closer look at the waste we were creating each day from our lunchboxes. We were quite shocked by what we discovered. We had a big chat about how we can reduce the waste that is ending up in our bins.

We have decided to take action! An action group has been established to educate us on how we can make our food nude. Next Thursday is going to be our first 'Nude Food Day' where all of us will try to think carefully about what we are putting in our lunchboxes so we can reduce the waste.

Keep checking out this blog for more information!

Land of Plenty

Yesterday for inquiry we were learning about why people would want to call New Zealand home, what attracts people to live here. We started by listening to the song 'Land of Plenty' by OMC. We discussed the themes of the song and what features of New Zealand were identified. Using wall wisher we brainstormed all our ideas about what makes people decide to live here.
Check out all our ideas!

Sharing our knowledge

Today we started our new Inquiry topic - 'Who are we?' As a class we shared all the information we already knew about NZ history. From all our facts we made a 'web of knowledge' which we then used to record our knowledge and then form questions we want to find answers for.
