This term we are learning about - WHAT’S INSIDE!  

While also considering our value ‘WAIRUA’.

We are going to take on the challenge of looking after ourselves.  As we get older, we need to take more responsibility for ourselves.

In room 2 we started with a wondering -
“I wonder why I should take care of myself?”

We had a discussion and then did some writing …

To keep me healthy and to feel good about myself!
Before looking at the insides of our body, we wanted to explore the outside!  How could we look after the outside of our bodies?

We have begun looking at what’s inside, and how we can look after our insides!

Can you guess our healthy foods?
