Where is my Turangawaewae (The Place Where I Belong)?

GOAL/Vision:

Rationale: To create open-minded, critical thinkers with a strong sense of identity, that can position them for their future.  

Knowledge is power.

We seek to empower our students with knowledge and skills and a full understanding of their position on aspects that matter in their world.

During the two years at Intermediate, students learn to belong to a wide variety of groups: their own families,  whanau fraternity, school, FLS, sports teams, cultural groups and social groups in and outside of school. Learning that they belong, shapes their identity. A clear view of one’s identity allows you to take a stand and own up to responsibilities.

Ultimately it provides their turangawaewae, place they can claim as their own where their opinions matter.

Every person deserves to know who they truly are, where they came from and that they can take a stand on issues important to them.

Term 1:
Science/ Inquiry:
Identify the different groups we belong to in our lives and get to know the importance of taking up our responsibilities in these groups.
Identify the different areas around us and how they fit into our well being.
Take stock of the opportunities available to us to voice our opinion and to feel included in our various circles of influence.
We will develop out ICT skills to find the specific information related to our personal circles of influence, to get to know our own skills and potential. We will also use our devices to present some of the information we wish to share.

Literacy Focus

We will use traditional Myths and Legends to learn research skills such as finding trustworthy resources, the main idea in key ideas and how to summarise. Students will learn to generate research questions to gather specific information and then to synthesise and compare and evaluate information. They will get opportunities to respond to a wide variety of information and questions using familiar and new structures.
