How will you be an Open-Minded Explorer in Term 4?

Yesterday Rimu class all had to write down a goal for the term because it's the beginning of  Term 4.
Our focus this term is being an open-minded explorer. 

This means knowing we can learn anytime, anywhere, and everyday. This means knowing we are open to other ways and ideas of thinking. This means we want to explore, keep going and try new things!

  1. This is a wonderful presentation. Reflection is crucial for multinational corporations, family businesses, a sports teams or a person sorting out their direction for life. It is great to see evidence of your reflections.

    I look forward to your next blog post.

  2. Kia ora Rimu Class,
    LOVE your video - what a great way of being creative in sharing your goals for the term. You certainly are going to be an organised, reflective and positive class during term 4. I especially liked these goals:
    Share my work in an interesting, fun and creative way!
    Try my best and never give up.
    Be ready to try new things.
    Make a challenge everyday and complete it.
    Think outside the box.
    All of these show me you are creative learners, willing to take risks and show persistence. You will be amazing explorers during Term 4 and I look forward to you sharing your learning on your blogs. Have a great term.

  9. Hi Rimu class

    Good work to Grace King for creating the video it looks great. I think this is a great way to put all of your goals into one short video. Some of you had really good goals about what you wanted to do. Maybe next time you could stay on the writing for a little bit longer because it was quite short and hard to read.
