Sunset - Room 8 News

Room Eight Sunset Primary School Satellite Unit!

Room 8 is one of two satellite classes here at Sunset Primary school.  We have seven students, 5 boys and 2 girls, aged between seven and ten.  Our students are supported by their teacher Jenn and three teacher aides. 

We enjoy activities around our host school such as using the bike track and joining in KiwiCan sessions as well as going out in the school vans.  Outings include swimming, with lessons by SwimAble beginning next term two, going to the Redwoods, Centennial Park Tree Trust, the Government Gardens and other local spots. 

In class we utilise technology as well as quality hands on resources to support the learning of our tamariki.  We are using Numicon resources, the Early Words programme and specialist programmes designed for our student’s specific needs by the Physiotherapist, Occupational therapist, Orientation and Mobility and Speech and Language specialists.  The most important aspect of our class programmes, however, is fun!
