Taputeranga, the marine reserve

What a wonderful day we had at Taputeranga.  The children's confidence in swimming in deeper water has improved dramatically.   There was so much to see.  The parents who came with us made the trip amazing.  They were kind, patient and encouraging and so the children were inquisitive and adventurous.  We even had two Dads who didn't have children in the programme.

Here is the first batch of photos from the trip.  My underwater photography skills need some work, but at least we do have a record of the children and their adventures.

Thinking about our learning....what is it and is it important?

Kidsedchatnz is on tomorrow.  The focus is on learning.  Here are the questions we will be answering.

These questions link really well with choice theory and with inquiry where we are asked to reflect on our own learning.
