Ngā Manu Friday Morning Rotations

28th September 2022

Kia ora e te whānau

This term Ngā Manu have been doing an inquiry rotation programme where each class had a 2-hour session every Friday morning on a specific aspect of their unit ‘Te Moana”.

They then moved on to the next rotation. Each rotation covered a different curriculum area:

Visual Arts – Paua Sculptures

Performing arts (Drama) – The wonderful things about the ocean and how we need to look after it?

Science/Aotearoa Histories/Te Reo – Haowhenua – The shaping of Wellingtons coastline.

Hauora/PE – Surf lifesaving games and activities

Science – Water analysis – How our local streams and rivers have an impact on our sea

Social Science/Technology – Ways to prevent plastics from entering our oceans (making a reusable lunch bag)

Here are just a few photos that were taken over during the rotations!

A BIG Thank you to Melissa Robertson for sharing photos taken when Ruma tekau mā whā went the Horoeka Street Reserve.
