Pokeno School

TERM 3 SCIENCE BOARD

During Term 3, Room 10 posed questions for inquiry. These questions were based around 'The Moon, The Stars and being an Astronaut'. The students posed their own questions and followed a Science Inquiry model to be able to be specific in answering the question that they had, rather than using loads of information that they had researched. We discussed how to put information in their own words and how to display information appropriately on a Science Board. The results were amazing!!

LEARNING SIGN LANGUAGE

On Wednesday 13th of June a lady named Cheryl came and shared some of her knowledge about sign language with us. 

Cheryl is deaf and has been doing sign language all her whole life and is on of the best people to learn from. Cheryl taught us many more phrases and signs. 

We really enjoyed Cheryl coming to teach us more sign language so we could be part of NZSL week. It was a great learning experience.
