What a fantastic year we've had in Rōpū Rima. Our Inquiry has been around the concept of 'Challenge' and boy, we have faced some challenges this year! In Term 1 we looked at the challenges within, who we were as learners and what makes us unique. The Y6 students challenged themselves at Camp and the Y5's had a 'Challenge Week'. In Term 2 we looked into the Challenges of the brain and what makes the brain a special driving force of who we are and the Year 5's challenged themselves at camp. In Terms 3 and 4 we looked at the challenges that the Earth faces in 'Trash Planet'. We learned how to up-cycle our trash in order to consume less and send less waste to landfills. What an awesome learning journey we have had in 2017!
