OUR NEW TOPIC INQUIRY "SCIENCE"
This week Room began their journey of learning about the wonderful world of science. Our first step was to identify what we know about science and what we would like to know more about science. We decided as a class to create mind maps to show the beginning journey of our new found knowledge. Room 1 will be focusing on chemical reaction and change. We promise not to blow the school up. As a class we understand that science is not all about explosions and experiments it is really important to know about observations and being able to write as a scientist. This is a goal we hope we can successfully complete.



OUR LANGUAGE INQUIRY.

OUR LANGUAGE INQUIRY.
In week 5 Room 1 decided to present their information about what they had learnt about the diverse languages in New Zealand. Some students gathered information about the positive impacts language has and other students decided to gather information about future possibilities a person can have with selecting the best language to learn. This topic was really engaging and linked well with Room 1 learning about the Niuean language. As a class we respect all different cultures and languages.

ROOM 1 AND THEIR STATISTICAL INQUIRY.
Today Room 1 learnt about what is a statistical inquiry? and how to complete an inquiry? Room 1 learnt about the process of beginning with a question, surveying and collecting the data, interpreting the gathered data, and lastly presenting their information. Room 1 wanted to survey the class about the different sports we can play at sports break. As a whole class we discovered after the inquiry that Room 1 students really enjoyed playing evasive games.  We look forward to our next statistical inquiry to help Greenmeadows Intermediate School.
