In 2011 this blog is going to show the work of both 9UN and 9BR. We are taught by Miss Burt for social studies.
In social studies in the first part of term one we have been studying a topic called 'Getting Started at Otahuhu College'.
In this topic we have learnt about the story behind our school motto and emblem, why our houses are named Seddon, Massey, Hobson and Grey, and about the people in our class.
As a part of learning about our classmates, we have created family trees and shields to represent ourselves. The shield has the school motto on it, and we had to decorate it with images that represent us.
People put pictures of things about their culture, religion, school, hobbies, families and sports they like. The following slideshow has pictures from our shields and family trees that are on the wall of our class.
