Men of Courage

This movie is an entry for the 'I am making movies 2' 3 minute movie challenge. It was in response to the theme of 'Bravery, Heartbreak, Loss and Hope'. This was produced by a group of year 8 boys from the extension group. Well done boys! A very creative way to tell a very important story of NZ.

Imagine if you could create your own pet. What would it look like? Students had to use their imagination to create an original pet and an imaginary island for that pet. Some found the task quite difficult while others uncovered some hidden talent and creativity.

Term 2

Our topic for Term 2 is 'Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger'.

Team 5 will be exploring the following concepts: Imagination, Creativity, Discovery, Innovation and Practicality, through a series of immersion rotation sessions.

Students will also investigate issues and/or problems around our school environment and seek ways to make improvements or find solutions. Our Pt England Learning model will be utilized alongside other metacognitive strategies such as the 'Thinking Hats' and 'Thinkers Keys'.

Watch this space to see what we get up to.
