Kindness is something we have been discussing in Matariki. Our new wall display shows a maunga and our students have placed themselves where they think they are in relation to their kindness.
We have been reflecting on the evidence for where we placed ourselves. We have discussed this and started a piece of writing outlining why we are where we are on the maunga. This has helped us to reflect on our actions and how we treat each other. It has also furthered our understanding the use of evidence to back up an idea help us with explanations in writing (which we are beginning to focus on).
So ask yourself, 'How kind am I?' 'How could I be kinder?'
