Kia Ora, Room 5 is one of six classes based at Kea Street. Our teacher is Ron Thornton and we are supported by our three fantastic Teacher Aides Angela, Vicki and Jodi. Students include Justin, Destiny, Ngawari, Ezekiel, Hekenuku, Sifa and Kalais.
Our week involves lots of activities both in and out of the classroom. Inside, for example, we work with Numicon to develop Math concepts, Bucket time fun for Literacy and we also use our Smart Board for all sorts of interesting learning activities - it is like we can visit anywhere in the World.
Our School wide theme this year is Our People Our Place Tangata Whenua Whenuatanga and this term we are learning about Tangata Whenua - Belonging, Who am I? Who are we? So in Term 1 we will be having lots of fun learning more about Me, my Family, my school and looking after myself.
We also get to work with Jono on Mondays for music and Aiden on Tuesdays for Te Reo and Waiata Maori. Out in the community we visit the Library, Council playgrounds and the Redwoods.
