INTEGRATED INQUIRY Learning @ Mangapapa


Integrated Inquiry Learning at Mangapapa School encourages our MKids to look at the world around them and ask questions.  We provide opportunities for our MKids to explore Big Ideas (Knowledge and Understanding) within our termly concepts and then make connections across the NZ Curriculum.  Through Integrated Inquiry Learning we are teaching our MKids about the concepts that we want them to understand; Change, Relationships, Connections, Impact, Sustainability.

Our Learning Assets provide our MKids with the skills and attributes that they need to be successful learners here at Mangapapa and in life.

The development of these learning assets allow our MKids to consider how they learn, alongside what they are learning.  The Learning Assets support us in our desire to ensure that our MKids have the learning power to  know what to do when they don't know what to do!
