MAT program with 1/2

I had the pleasure today to observe a 1/2 class enjoying their MAT program with Guy. Guy talked to the children about perseverance, taking a risk, making mistakes and growth mindset. The students were totally engaged and their questions and answers showed the rich learning they are enjoying with this brilliant program.

1/2KC MAT Program

The motto for the MAT Program is:-                        

Be Strong     Be Calm     Be Kind     Keep trying!

During the program, Guy and Elena teach us that all feelings are okay, we just need to know how to control them!

We are learning to be emotionally resilient.

We are learning to control our emotions!

 

This short video clip shows the children taking part in one of their favourite games called “On Patrol”! The students need to pose with the appropriate action for the command being called, e.g. defend, samurai and “Protect the Princess”!  The last student left is the overall winner!

Natural Resources

During this week the preps have been learning about natural resources. We broke into groups and made a 3D display to put on our wall. We have learnt that a natural resource is something that the Earth creates and we can use these resources to help us live.  Here is a photo of our display wall.
