Assembly Item - The Human Brain

Today we will be showing this video at our senior assembly.  We made the connection that our brains work like a traffic light and wanted to share this with other learners in the school.

Our Lighthouse Narratives

We have been looking at how to write narratives!  We made the connection to stories where a narrative has to have the following parts:
  • A beginning;
  • A middle; and,
  • An ending

We also looked at how we can introduce and describe both the characters and the setting.  A narrative has to have a problem and a solution so please see if you can find out what these are in each of our narratives.

We watched this animation and created our own narratives from watching it.

We also created our own lighthouses to add to the detail we used in our narratives - hope you can come and read them when you're next in the hub!

Identity Art Up In The Hub!

As we mentioned in our last assembly item, we were working together to get our identity art up on the walls as permanent parts of our hub.

We were determined to achieve this goal and today they went up!  They look amazing - ka pai to everyone who helped collaborate to get these finished.
