Term 4 Jagged Smackdowns

Then we researched using YouTube, our buddies who were strong in these areas and our families at home. Then we had a minute to present what we had learnt. These are our slides:

Interesting inquiries that show we are inquisitive...

Since we got back from camp we have been collaborating in our groups to try and solve some of the world's problems and live in a more sustainable way. Different groups inquired into water pollution, kauri dieback, introduced pests and deforestation. First we had to do some research (learn). Then we created something original. Finally we shared what we had created. Here are some examples:

What do you call 20 students sitting, listening and clicking their fingers?

Poetry Slam! Of course!

This week we were lucky to have Marina Alefosio and four high school students come and perform some spoken word to us. We learnt to show our appreciation by clicking our fingers.

They gave us some great ideas for some poems so we raced back to class and had our own poetry slam straight away. Here are the top four points scorers and their poems. Well done Danielle for coming first!

Give our poets some feedback about what you liked and what you think they could work on.

Strike 3!

Yesterday we had our softball tournament at Keith Hay Park. The Wesley team used positive language and encouraged each other all day. They also showed amazing manners and sportsmanship. We won one of our games 9 - 7 and had a few close games (including a 6 - 7 loss). Lots of great catches and some awesome home runs.
