Fairburn School

Current Inquiry Topics


This year Fairburn School will be focussing our inquiry learning around the idea of ‘Our Place’. We will be looking at our surroundings and history, starting in our classrooms and going right out into outer space. In terms 1 and 2, we will be focusing about our place in Otahuhu, New Zealand, The world, Our planet, Our Solar System, through science and social science.

We will be learning about what it means to be part of a group and community, and the importance of our history in Otahuhu. We will also be learning about the size of space, the planets in our solar system and the relationships between the Sun, Moon and Earth.
