Kia ora from Room 3!


We have had such a great start to the year. We have been learning about the Treaty of Waitangi, we have created our own class treaty, brainstormed what our school values looks like, sound like and feel like, started swimming lessons, started collaborative reading with Room 2 where we create our own reading timetable and much more. Keep an eye on the blog to see more about our learning throughout the year.

Discover Time - Weaving

Friday was our first Discover Time this year. The Junior team's focus during the session was one of our school values; Respect/Pono. During the morning we had the opportunity to show respect to each other and our environment through play and creativity. We created weaved placemats with Māori designs, paper wakas and contributed to a Junior Kahu huruhuru (feather cloak) by decorating a feather. Check out some of the weaved placements below.
