Photography at The Suter

Last week Kereru Class went to The Suter to learn a little bit about photography.
The students looked at a photography exhibition and explored the questions— What is a photo? What does it tell us? How does it relate to the well-known saying ‘a picture tells a thousand words’
The students then went out into Queen's Gardens and focused on capturing the essence of the place through detail.
Here are some of the results.
Well done Kereru!

Clued Up Kids!

On Monday Kereru class went toCclued Up Kids Programme to learn basic safety in the house and outside. We learnt how to fit a lifejacket, how to identify hazards around our homes, how to approach a dog safely,  how to escape a burning home and where to meet our family as well as road biking skills. We also experienced an earthquake in the shaky house and learnt some first aid as well as learning how to call 111.
It was a good morning and we learnt lots of new skills.
We practiced some key competencies while we were there. 
Here are some of them- 
Participating and Contributing: Including others and myself
Thinking- We were able to ask questions about what we were learning
Relating to Others- We worked together as a group for some of the activities
