Value of the Term

Thinking
Whakaaro
Willingness to question, reflect, investigate and create. This means wanting to find out more.

Our Whakatauki for this term is...

Pihi kau ake te whakaaro pai, hauhake tonu iho.


When a good thought springs to mind, make sure it is harvested.

A good idea is like a seed. It needs planting, caring for and then it will be ready to harvest.

When you have a good idea you can…

Share it
Reflect- think about it some more
Wonder- ask yourself and others questions
Find out more  




Your ideas must start small in    Then after you think your idea    When you finally know that it
order for you to think it through.   through it will start to grow.         starts to look like it will work
                                                                                                        then you won’t look like a
                                                                                                        clown in class.


   
                            If you don’t use your idea it      Then it will fade away then it
                            will start to become rotten.       will  disappear and you’ll
                                                                              forget.

Describe a Stormy Night

Pitch black in the dark, all alone I felt afraid. Unusual sounds coming from downstairs with all the power out and no lights. Thunder was as loud as a setup bomb, lightning looked like the sky was about to disappear and the wind sounded like a howling wolf.


I run to my blanket in pitch black and cover myself head to feet. I have a little peek and see a light, I get a sudden feeling that it is someone trying to see if I am alright but… It wasn’t somebody it was something! Lightning starts and thunder starts rumbling like my empty tummy. It grows brighter and brighter and louder and louder as I hide under the blankets like I am a dead squashed bug.


Meanwhile I did fall asleep, imagining what it would be like without loud rumbling thunder and bright lightning. I wake up as the thunder is still continuing. I think to myself, “That is the one and only time I am falling asleep tonight.”

It was just past midnight and I was still wide awake with nothing to do.
