Kia Ora and welcome to Room 8.

My name is Miss Julia Delany and I am new to Pokeno School this year. I have been teaching for 18 years and am really excited to be teaching a wonderful group of Year 5 and 6 students.

Learning in Room 8

The thirty one students and Miss Delany and been settling into the year and have been busy working. Our topic is Learning to Learn and we've been learning what it actually means to learn: what motivates us, how do we overcome barriers to our learning, how we celebrate success and how it's okay to fail. Learning is a process. You only learn by failing.

We have been practising reading for a sustained time. So far we've collectively managed to read non-stop for 8 minutes. Our goal is 10 minutes! 

We have also been creating artwork to decorate the room. We have personalised a hoodie and our self portraits are underway. We already have our symmetrical name bugs up. They look really cool!

Busy writing about our summer.


Deep in concentration

Our hoodies are bold, bright and beautiful!
