World War Wonderings

In preparation for our visit to Te Papa and Pukeahu we are investigating World War One and New Zealand’s part in this conflict. To help focus our learning we need to have some questions on this topic. Click on the smaller Linoit box at the bottom of this post and then create a sticky note with your question on it.

Strike

On Tuesday this week we were lucky enough to have the Strike percussion group visit Arthur Miller School to perform for us. Check out the Adobe Voice below to find out more.

Symbols

In our inquiry into the flag referendum we are discussing flags and the symbols people and countries use to represent themselves. On the linoit wall below are our ideas about the symbols which we think represent New Zealand.

People Savers

Today we have been learning how to be people savers with Lia from the Red Cross. She has been teaching all of us what to in an emergency medical situation . To help us remember the steps to take we have learnt the acronym DRSABC. Please ask your child what this acronym stands for so they can practice using this information. Lia also gave each student a People Savers booklet which we have been working through during our course.

Today we had a go at Orienteering. This tested our fitness and our sense of direction. Jane and Philippa from Hawke’s Bay Orienteering got us started and showed us how to use the equipment. They were fantastic and we all had a wonderful time racing around the school and trying to get a good time for each course. Hopefully we get to do orienteering again soon. Some of us might even join the club.
