Teacher: Olwen Partelow
Kia ora and welcome to Room 4!
We are the new entrant class at Rotokawa School.
In Room 4 we are learning through play. This means we are noisy and messy, but most importantly we are having fun! We focus on learning to Read, Write and think Mathematically during traditional small groups and use play to explore this new knowledge and to extend our understanding of the other areas of the curriculum.
In term 2 there is a school wide focus on respect. The children in room 4 naturally reduce reuse and recycle all sorts of materials in their play and have repeatedly shown an interest in how to respect and care for the environment around them and this is the area we will explore. We will investigate how respect should look like in our school environment which will help us to become good citizens of Rotokawa School. This can then be extended to respecting our local environment and what we need to do to be good citizens of Rotorua. Finally we will be to look at how this links with our place in the world.
If you have any questions about how we learn in Room 4 or if you would like to come and see our learning in action contact me to arrange an appointment.
