Hi Folks

This term I am hoping to "up-the-anti" a bit more with student blogging more frequently about their learning. With Miss Hay's help we will aim for at least one post every two weeks because there is lots of lovely learning going on that would be awesome to show and keep.  Hopefully you will take a look and make comments when possible.

E noho ra.

It's been nearly 6 months since I last posted to this an done of my teaching goals this year was to challenge myself to get you to use our class blog more regularly and place your amazing learning onto it. Sooooooo here goes.  I have created two more pages for us, one to show our maths thinking and one to show our art.  There will be more as the year progresses but I'm going to start small.

Get involved and invite your parents to comment on your input and learning. Click on the tabs above to add your comments and I will show you have you can add your own stuff as well.

With a new year has come a new name for this blog and for our learning environment. Ruru is our new name and like the New Zealand native owl the morepork (ruru), this Senior Yr 8 area is where wisdom works.

We will be using this blog as a place to show and share our new wisdom and learning. The Ruru Learning Zone can also be accessed from here by clicking on the link below. 
So happy learning and be wise!
