During this unit of inquiry, Who are we, we have used and encouraged learners to watch Life Story to see examples of their learning in nature https://www.tvnz.co.nz/content/tvnz/ondemand/shows/l/life-story.html this has many instances of the characteristics that humans share with other living organisms.  In the ELC we are focussing on texts that relate to MRS C GREN for our reading programme.
For fun we also ran a competition about Who we are, as people. This comprised of a selection of family photos of the ELC and ICT teams. Entrants had to guess which staff member belonged to which family photo.
Well done to Ofa and Baz who came first and second respectively!

We use a variety of ways to develop our vocabulary and understanding of the current unit of inquiry.  We use text as well as audio visual displays.
