Tamariki have begun their own inquiries selecting their own topics. They were given an inquiry planner template and guided through the processes involved in planning their inquiry. They all have excellent topics that they want to research and further investigate. These topics were negotiated with the teacher then the tamariki had to write down what they know about the topic, what they think they know and what they want to find out? They had to write down one question about their topic that they want to know, this question will form the basis of their inquiry learning. They will soon realize that their one key question will bring about subsidiary questions and they will discover a whole lot of exciting information, answering their wonderings. So whānau ask your tamaiti/tamariki about their topic for inquiry and get them to explain what they have been doing and why.
I can’t wait to see the final presentation in a couple of weeks!
