Participating and Contributing

This morning we talked about our school values, which are Ako, Rangimarie and Tukumarie, Whanaungatanga and Manaakitanga. We talked about how we can show these values in different areas of the school. Then we put up our ideas on post-it notes and put them into the right category.

Then we summarised everybody's suggestions and formed our class treaty. 
(Click here to view it).

This treaty is a way for our class to agree on all the behaviours we expect from each other. If somebody is doing the right thing, we can say 'wow you are really showing Ako today by explaining that to your friend', and if somebody is not doing the expected behaviours, we can say 'how do we show Rangimarie in the class?' and that person will be reminded of what they should be doing.
