We are learning to read maps, cross roads safely and appreciate art in our environment.
Using a map of our school we followed an art trail around our school.
It is tricky reading a map. We used the landmarks on the map to help us figure out where to find different pieces of art around our school. We learnt to look down on the map like a bird (birds eye view).
Room 1617 were buddies for the Year 1 and 2 children in our hub.

Tuakana Teina is when an older person teaches a younger person. Room 1617 did a great job of teaching their buddies and
showing them how to complete the trail rather than doing it all for them.
