Our Learner Attribute for this term is I am connected.
As part of building on our Learner Attribute of I am connected, some of the year 2, 3 and 4's have become tuakana (older) whānau buddies for the new members of Worser Bay School from Autahi as they begin their learning journey at our kura.
Over the next few weeks, they will get to know each other and do different activities together to build their relationships.
First, the tuakana (older) buddies made an introduction card for their (younger buddies).
Next, one group of tuakana got to know their teina buddy by interviewing them, making connections and then spending some time playing games.
Eddie- It was exciting to meet my new buddy because it was fun to get to do something with someone you have never done something with before.
Lillian- It was fun to show someone little how to do things.
Leo- I want my tuakana buddy to help me make more friends.
Violet- I want my tuakana buddy to help me learn maths.
