Nau mai, haere mai, Welcome to Room 1, 2019. 

Room 1 is a group of year 2 students who work alongside 2 teachers. Whaea Christina works alongside students Monday, Tuesday and Friday  and Mrs. Rankin works Wednesday and Thursday. 

Last year, during the end of year transition to Room 1, our class completed some self-portraits using crayon, dye and wool. These self portaits helped our class to delve into our 2019, Term 1 learning topic – Identity/Tuakiri. Already, as part of learning about who we are, we worked with our parents/family to find out more about our names and where they came from. We also took home an “All About me bag’. In this bag, we needed to choose 3 items that best represented us and our Identity. These were shared with our class and provided for great discussions.

In Room 1, Play allows us to engage with learning (and the curriculum) by using our passions, strengths and interests as a driving force. It provides us with a chance to use our School Values, be collaborative, develop oral language and make decisions around participation, negotiation and conceding. Within our play, the curriculum content is explored, identified and discussed on a day to day basis.

As the year continues, we would love to combine the skills, knowledge, and relationships that you, your whānau and your child have with our own and our school's set of skills, knowledge, and relationships to support you and your child as they head into their second year of school.

If you want to check out our learning, come and visit Room 1!

Ngā mihi,

Christina and Zoe
