Pokeno School

Words, words, words!

We have been busy learning our basic sight words. We want to read these words really fast. Look at these super learners!

Pirate day

We had lots of fun on Thursday when we dressed up as Pirates, Mermaids and all sorts of other scoundrels. We had lots of fun showing our grandparents how clever we are! Amelia even had help from her little brother!

Beau had quite a shock when he saw the beautiful treasure in his Treasure chest!

Mr J - our school has turned into a pirate school!

Tony made toast and wrote a super story about it..

Aahana liked her marshmallow and wrote a story describing what it tasted like.

Look! Alexus can make and read I 


Rylee is using her imagination and creativity to squeeze, roll, cut and mould the dough. Imagination and creativity are a cornerstone in problem solving, self-esteem and self-confidence. 


Look at the boat that Jacob made! Wow, great problem solving, Jacob!

Construction Corner

Logan and Jake had lots of fun building and playing with the Pirate ship.

P for Pancakes

We joined with Room 2 to make lovely pancakes.

Family Corner

This is where the children “try out” being a grown up . They can dress up and pretend to be a mum, dad, cook a meal or go shopping. The play is quite complex as they play with the other children. This area helps the children develop their oral language and many important social skills such as negotiating, sharing, collaborating, turn taking, and more.
