A group of seniors went up to Tautoru to teach them about fractions. We were given a small group of kids to teach. The kids cooperated and were all super enthusiastic! In our group we split the kids into 2 groups. One group was kids who understood fractions. The other group were who didn’t understand them that much. We taught the kids about fractions so they understood what they were and so can use them in the future.

We have been unpacking the idea of Tuakana/ Teina. Our students have been discussing these ideas and how they can build their leadership.
Research about peer teaching says that:
- Students receive more time for individualised learning.
- Direct interaction between students promotes active learning.
- Peer teachers reinforce their own learning by instructing others.
- Students feel more comfortable and open when interacting with a peer.
- Peers and students share a similar discourse, allowing for greater understanding.
