Our learning wall...

Children in Room 1 are becoming much more aware of what they are learning in reading, writing and maths. They are actively involved with deciding what their personal next steps in these learning areas are. They are learning to do their own self assessment and can track their progress on the learning wall!

Play time!

Today we visited our Play Centre next door. Thank you Rebecca Sneddon for making us feel so welcome and showing us some faces of Papatuanuku, our Mother Earth.
Visits like these are invaluable for transitioning to school. Here is an impression of our visit.


Self assessment in writing

We are getting very good at articulating our learning and we are only 5!!!

Transitioning from an Early Childhood Centre to Room 1...

Here is Jackie, confidently sharing her Learning Journey up til now with her peers. Children were very interested and asking questions. Jackie very obviously enjoyed showing off her previous learning!
