Skills for Adolescents

Today we started our learning called 'Skills for Adolescence'! We unpacked the word 'Adolescence' by thinking about what it means to us and the types of things we are going to explore further. It is a scary and exciting time in our lives. Can you think of anything we might have missed? What is one message about growing up you can share with us?


We are using a Thinkboard to help us think about maths problems in a different way. I found the "10 other similar questions" hard because I had to think about the questions answering to 5. Visit my blog again next week to see how I solve the next Thinkboard task.

Waitangi Day

Happy Waitangi Day! One of the historic days in New Zealand history. Some people call this day, "New Zealand Day" because they say New Zealand was made from the Waitangi Treaty, signed in Waitangi. It is a public holiday, so, most people don't go to work, and children don't go to school.

I watched the news today and one of the celebrations I heard about were these kites floating across the wind. That was cool, with the cool flags and people. Fun fact: Today is also the day that marks 50 years since the Beatles first performance on American television, on the Ed Sullivan Show.

Cyber Smarts Acrostic Poem

You make your own decisions
Be accountable to others,
Everyone around you.
