Cyber Smart Craze

Every Friday the Tumu children are lucky enough to have Cyber Smart lessons. Some of the things we have been learning about are being a smart learner and having a smart footprint. We have been using shortcut keys and writing quality blog posts. Today we have been learning about the schools we are going to be blog buddies with. We have been using Google maps to discover what these schools look like.

Korfball Fun

What a wonderful day for Korfball! Korfball is a ball game that originated in The Netherlands. It has similarities to netball and basketball. The children loved every minute of this game.

Below are some photos of the children playing Korfball. The other children in the hub got to play cricket and lawn bowls. These three sports will be happening every Thursday for the next three weeks.

On Tuesday 29th October 2019, the children from Tumu Hub stepped back in time to experience what New Zealand was like in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The children found out first hand what education was like back then, they got to wash clothes by hand, take a tram ride, play with olden day toys and they even got to go to the tiny cinema there and watch a movie about life in New Zealand back in the 1940s. A definite highlight was playing the game, "The Money or the Bag." It was a memorable day that has helped our PBL to come alive.

Thank you to all the parents who helped us on the day.

PBL Innovation Challenges

This week, the children in Tumu Hub have been working collaboratively to invent devices and clothing out of limited resources. The children needed to be innovative, be problem solvers and tap into their creative sides in order to be successful. 

They had to create balloon snatchers, marble runs and clothing.

Please check out the photos below to see some of this in action.
