Unique Supportive Learners Creative Fun Respected Risk takers Role Models Thinkers WHANAU! 008, 18 Feb 2019 00:00:00 +1300 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/817323 Whaea Sherryl https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/816170 Kia ora tatou, my name is Sherryl Crawford (Whaea Sherryl) and this is my first year at Mountview School. For the past 7 years I was a teacher at Wairakei Primary School teaching year 4, 5 and 6. Prior to that I was taught for Year 7s for 2 years at Taupo Intermediate and before that I lived in Auckland. All together I have been teaching for 19 years and I am very excited to become a member of the Mountview community. I have one adult daughter and one 8 year old granddaughter. I have a few animals - 2 dogs, 7 cats and 1 horse (well she's a pony but thinks she's a big horse!) My granddaughter rides the pony and I am relegated to brushing, picking out feet and walking very quickly next to the pony to keep up. My dogs and I enjoy walking and you will often find us at Spa Park which is one of the nicest places I have been to to walk dogs. My teaching philosophy is quite simple - if children are interested in what they are learning, learning happens. It is important to teach the core curriculum of reading, writing and maths and wherever possible these are integrated into their chosen inquiry topic. Deliberately teaching the skills of how to find information, to be self managing, to collaborate and get along with others, to think and be creative are now recognised as being some of the most valuable things we can teach our children. The world is changing at such a rapid rate that information alone will no longer be enough. Goal setting is an important aspect of learning. If children know where they are they can identify where they need to go to next and learning becomes self driven and ultimately more powerful. I am looking forward to working with your whanau this year. I am a friendly and approachable person so please come and say hello and introduce yourself. After teaching at one school for many years the challenge for me is to get to know the Mountview community and to learn the names of all my students!

We walked to Paetiki shops to buy fresh fruit. We were in 4 groups and each group had $10 to spend. We wrote shopping lists and looked at the specials flyer to see how much things cost. It was fun spending our money. Some of us overspent so we couldn't afford to buy everything so we had to share fruit with others. It was a great life skill to learn. 033, 18 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800161 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800160 033, 18 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800160 The Human Brain https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800159 Students in Room 8 are discovering lots about the Human Brain, how it is made up and what the parts do. We are discovering how important it is to feed our bodies the right food for brain development. This has led us to looking at good food choices. Here is a model of the brain we made from a paper bowl. It shows that the brain is responsible for all our thoughts, feelings, actions and memories. 033, 18 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/800159 Term 3, week 4 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/799799 033, 14 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/799799 Term 3, week 3 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798998 032, 8 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798998 Term 3, week 2 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798329 031, 1 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/798329 Term 3, week 1 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/797607 030, 25 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/797607 Term 2, week 10 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795038 027, 4 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795038 Sharing our singing https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795036 027, 4 Jul 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/795036 Term 2, week 9 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794365 026, 26 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/794365 Term 2, week 8 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793694 025, 20 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +1200 https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793694 Week 7, Term 2 - using the sentence train https://www.mountview.school.nz/blog/793510 After Whaia Jodie had completed some professional development on teaching sentence structure, the children were able to use the train to form sentences about one of their interests.
