Rutherford's Den

It's all go here in Tangaroa this term!  In addition to our own science experiments in class, we have been exploring Sir Ernest Rutherford's contribution to the world of science in a series of trips to Rutherford's Den at the Art's Centre this week. 

We learnt about his work, life and achievements.  We did some hands on play demonstrating some of the theories he worked with, and created our own carbon atom!

Relationship and Sexuality Education

Last nights parents of students in years5-8 braved the cold to come and hear a little about the health programme we are teaching this term.  Puberty!  What were you taught as a child?  How does your family talk about this topic?

We shared this powerpoint with parents last night as an overview of the topics we are covering in the course of this unit.

If you weren't able to make it, have a look.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or your classroom teachers for more information.

Learning conversations

That's right, it is that time of year.  First round of learning conversations were last night and it was such a joy to watch students share their learning with whānau. Can't wait to see more of you tonight!



It might be cold outside...


It might be cold outside but that doesn't stop Mosiana, Willow, Jaime and Nabraska enjoying ice cream made in science.  This term's focus is chemistry and we are having fun looking at physical and chemical changes.  Watch this space for more exciting experiments.
