The children really loved the field trip. They could relate lots of the content to our local area. We used the field trip as a supplement for our science programme in the classroom.
Complements classroom programmes really well. Useful for the strands in SST on Place & Environment and Continuity and Change. The trip also supported the future focus and sustainability concepts found in the front of the NZC.
It has given me a fantastic resource to use in the classroom to motivate and engage the students. It was perfect timing for Sea Week and it had the students participating and contributing, thinking, relating to others and making connections.
Many areas of the curriculum were covered for me during this field trip. Having the option for the children to listen to the text being read is really helpful, as it gives all children the same opportunity to access the information. The children have learnt a lot and we are now applying this knowledge in our follow up activities.
It has helped add innovative, engaging material to my teaching and further engaged my students in the issues we were already examining. Supported the principles, values and key competencies as well as LO's for NCEA Level 1 Geography.
Fitted in perfectly with our school's vision, the key competencies and values. It was an excellent resource to supplement what we were doing in the classroom.
Highly effective. Year 5&6 totally engaged. The videos are gold, prompting much discussion and the kids loved being part of the webinars.
Great learning to be had by all children. Very engaging. We also used this field trip to prepare for an overnight trip to the Tawhiranui Open Sanctuary.
Supported our study of Tangaroa, based on Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. We all learnt so much, both the students and kaiako. Very informative newsletters made using the site easy.
This field trip supported all students in developing their own learning direction for this topic. Enabled students to make contact and initiate conversations with experts who do not live in their area.
Appropriate topic to implement the Principles, KC and Vision of the NZC with Year 10 class. Variety of learning activities, useful support and help.
It consolidated what we are undertaking with our inquiry unit.
