Each morning in Tautoru we start off our day with Wake Up Your Brain - a quick 20 minutes of activity to get our brains going, heart pumping and our bodies moving in preparation for a day full of learning! Not only is it FUN but this opportunity for exercise has a positive impact on our physical health.
The activities to choose from this term are Dodgeball, Dance, Boot Camp and Rob the Nest. We have been enjoying the opportunity to cooperate with and meet new friends. We have shown manaakitanga by sharing and taking turns with equipment, encouraging each other through challenges and finding opportunities to compliment each other.
Many of us have recognised that we feel more alive, happy and awake....energised and ready to learn with a big smile on our face! All these positive emotions that we experience at the beginning of the day set us up for a great, productive day at school.
