Kairo – King of the Kahoot!

Mihimihi Quiz

In Week One of Term Two, Te Ara Angitu used a Kahoot! to check in on our knowledge of keywords used in our mihi.  The questions were:

The podium for this week is:

Our next step for this area of learning is to have all of our hub improve on their first attempt by having another go of this Kahoot!

Right On

Doing the Right Thing at the Right Time

Today we looked at our value for this week by identifying situations and times throughout the school day when we need to show our Value of doing the right thing at the right time and place.

This is a collection of our ideas:


Words From Kid President

Things We Should Say More Often

To finish our week of focusing on the value of Use Kind Words and Actions, we watched a YouTube clip from an old favourite, Kid President.  In this clip, he lists 20 things we should say more often.  (The patero part got a few laughs).

We then created a list of some of the things we think we should say more often and students chose their top five to record in their Topics books.

Our next step is to create opportunities to say these things to each other.

These are our ideas:



Zones of Regulation Review

The Zones of Regulation are used to help us regulate our emotions in order to be in the best space for learning.  To start 2023, we did a hub brainstorm to see what we already know about the zones.

This is what we came up with:

Our next step is to be able to explain what strategies we can use and use them in our daily lives.

Times Tables

Today I practised my 10 xTables.  I think I did pretty well but I was a bit slow today.  I made a couple of terrible mistakes.

My next step is to test myself on my 10x tables and then start working on my 3x tables.

Here are two pictures of my mahi.


Prototec Week 3 Term 2

Prototec is a basic facts site we use in Numeracy.  Today, I did a Stage 4 sheet which is my level in Math.  I scored 15/60.  I did it really fast so made some mistakes.  My score was better than I thought it would be.

Next time, I need to actually try.

Here is my screenshot:

Te Ara Angitu Expectations

At the start of Term Two we had many of our students return to school after quite a long time of being away due to the COVID situation.  We decided that we need to recap and review the expectations that we have for our hub.

These are the ideas we came up with.

Our next step is to ensure that we continue to show these expectations.
