What Lies Beyond My Frame?

Rationale: We live in a age where it is important for children to develop skills such as empathy, resilience and growth mindset and making links to how these skills can help their learning. We want students to have an understanding that there is more to the picture of their lives than what they see. We want students to be able to look at their past, present and future frames of their lives and consider how these impact them in a family, friend, school, community and global context.

Through exploring this fertile question students will develop critical thinking skills, communication skills, emotional intelligence as well as questioning and problem solving skills.

Term 1 Focus: How do pictures of our past shape our future?

Inquiry:

  • Students will learn the inquiry process through research about Sir Apirana Ngata.
  • Students will attempt to answer this question through exploring WW1,  ANZAC and how war displaced people against their will. We will look at what the effect of war had on NZ and the wider world. We will cover the skills of how to follow the Inquiry Process to develop critical thinking skills.

Literacy:

  • Students will focus on the ability to skim and scan non fiction texts to find information
  • Students will learn how to find evidence in a text to support their answers
  • Students will write a newspaper report based around WW1
  • Students will write a ‘Remember When’ poem from their summer holidays
