Our inquiry projects

Here are the inquiry projects that were created. Please remember that we are still learning, so not all information is completely accurate. This work shows what the 'take-away' from our inquiry unit was.

The end of the term

What a great job you have done this term team! We have made such a big improvement in how we manage ourselves and our learning. Your teachers (and parents I am sure) are very, very proud of you.

Completed inquiry projects will appear here and on your uSpace over the next couple of weeks.

Have a wonderful holiday. Enjoy looking through your sample books and don't forget to log on to Ultranet. Your videos are uploaded. Any problems...please let us know.

The first post of 2015!

It is almost the end of term 1 already. We have had a very busy term adapting to our new way of running things. However, we have had an awesome term together, with students and teachers alike enthused about learning.

We look forward to wrapping up the term with the school swimming sports (full of both fun and serious races). This will give our students a chance to show their skills. 

One of the highlights of this term was our visit to Whiskey Gully, a great opportunity to see our local area and go for a bush walk. This fantastic trip (thanks to parents and the Hughes from Blue Mountain Nurseries) helped students to hook into our inquiry this term based around the forest and the Matai tree.
 We have been investigating adaptations of birds, what makes a tree a tree (and how a tree works), and what a tree has to do with our school values. 

Next week we wrap up the inquiry as we put together a presentation showing our inquiry learning this term.
