Values that the class are strong in, form a solid foundation for us to build on. Weaker values create our roof and support columns. For each of us to grow as learners and people, all parts of our classroom need to be strong, we need to have a strong understanding of all areas of POWER. That is why we are trying to grow in POWER on our journey together this year.
Room 2 identified whānau as an area we needed to know more about. Students thought it was all about people and after much brainstorming and discussion, we summarised our ideas about whānau under the heading One Team. To be part of one team, we need to learn about ourselves and others and help each other along the way.
To do this, each student had to show and tell the class about themselves in a piece of artwork. This is what some students had to share about their work.
