Welcome to room 1.

We are a class of fun, motivated and focused learners. We cannot wait to show you how we grow and learn throughout the year!


Science in a Van - 20th of August

Ruru Whanau was lucky enough this week to have Science in a Van visit our school to teach us about forces, balance, states of matter, mixtures and reactions. This was a brilliant introduction to our next learning unit on Kitchen Chemistry. 


Below are some pictures of our experiences in the Science Show.

Term 3

We have been very busy with our learning so far this term. We have been learning about 2D shapes, writing about how we are special and producing beautiful pieces of art.

Road Safety

Room 1 was lucky to attend a puppet show that taught us all about road safety. We all learnt to stop, look and listen before we use our feet. We also learnt about road signs and what they mean. It was a great learning experience.


Phonics, Phonics, Phonics...

We always learn our alphabet letters and their sounds. We need to learn our letter names and sounds so that we can read and write words. Here is our workshop.
