Pokeno School

Welcome to Room 14

Challenge and Perseverance

Our first week back in Term 2 and Miss W has already asked us to challenge ourselves and show perseverance. Bubbles inside a bubble! Sounds easy but it wasn't. Thanks,  Mrs. Fraser for sharing the activity!

Welcome to Term 2 . 

We are excited to be working with the students on some new topics. We will be investigating ‘Our Origins’ and how we ‘Belong’. Exploring countries and cultures through ‘The Arts’ (Dance, Drama, Music, and Art). You can find the Kea Whaanau T2 Newsletter in the button below. 

Kia Ora and welcome to Room 14.

This year things are going to be a little different in Room 14 as there are two teachers. For Term One, Room 14 will have myself (Mrs. McCarthy) and for Term 2 - 4, Room 14 will have Miss W (Kea Whaanau Leader). The reason for this is that I will be going on Maternity Leave at the end of Term One.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email or come and see me in Room 14, my door is always open. I look forward to getting to know you all over the space of Term One!

Great work Room 14, we have hit 100 books on the Readerpillar! Keep up the great reading!

The Human Brain is such an interesting topic to learn about. 

I can see that Ben has learnt quite a bit about the brain. Keep up the awesome learning Ben!

What great dedication you have shown to your learning process about the human brain. Even though you didn't have a printer to print the sheet off, you found a way around it! Well done for thinking outside the box! Keep up the great work Hunny!

LEvel 3 announcement

Good Morning Room 14, you will be aware by now that as of 11:59pm last night we moved into alert Level 3 for the Auckland Region and that Pokeno is included in the Auckland Region this time around. We are hoping this Level 3 will only last the three days, however we can’t be too sure. In saying that, the Kea Whaanau teachers are working hard to set up some online learning platforms that we can use, if we need to.  Our class pages will be updated regularly with information and activities for you and your family to participate in, so keep an eye out on your class web page for updates and please stay safe.
