...Mrs England's Breakthrough groups...

All of Mrs England's Breakthrough groups were so engaged and motivated in their breakthroughs today!

Many of them are creating Google presentations about their topic, which are looking great.

Some of the children have been researching about their topics using YouTube and Google Search.
It has been a VERY productive day for all groups as they have been determined to find information and create their own presentations.

Temple Trip

…Temple Trip…

Hub 1 and Hub 2 went to visit the Fo Guang Shan Temple in Flatbush.
We had a lot of fun and learnt so much about the values and beliefs of Buddhism.
The Temple was very beautiful and we were amazed with the designs of the buildings. The sculptures were so detailed and some were very big!

If you would like to check out the website for the Temple here is the link:

Here are some photos from our trip, enjoy…

Mrs England's Breakthrough Groups Term 2

Mrs England's Breakthrough Groups Term 2

Mrs England is in charge of these wonderful Breakthrough groups this term...

All groups have been hard at work today brainstorming and drawing what they already know about their chosen topic. We knew a little bit of information in our area of choice, but we have so much more to learn. We have also brainstormed what we now want to learn about and what we want to do/ achieve with our chosen Breakthrough. 
We are all super excited about our topics for Term 2. 

Bring on Breakthrough for Term 2!

Sign Language Week:

...NZ Sign Language Week...

In Hub 1 we have been celebrating and learning all about NZ Sign Language Week.
We have been using and practising the alphabet to learn how to say our name using sign language.

It has been a lot of fun and we are becoming so confident with sharing our names to one another.

Here are some photos of learners who have shared to the hub their name in sign language...

Stepping Out!

Here is Mrs England's Guardian Group with the Stepping out programme:

We were VERY lucky to get to ride in a police car today and to dress up in real police gear today.

We have loved our week learning about being safe walking on the footpath and when crossing roads.

It has been lots of fun working with and learning from Constable Gordon throughout the week!
