Pokeno School

Room 4, Term 4

Kia ora everyone!  Welcome back to Term 4 of 2021.  Well, we find ourselves remaining in lockdown for the start of this term and while I know this may be a difficult and challenging time for all of us, I also know that together, we can get through it by supporting one another and taking things day by day.

Please reach out and say hello, share your learning with an email or photo and please ask for any help that you may need.  I am here for you and I can't wait to see you all again - I know it won't be too long until we can all be back at school together.

Kia kaha Room 4!

Week 7

This week we have been busy creating our own special 'Room 4 Cubby house'!  Everyone demonstrated such tremendous team work and cooperation and we got to stretch our concepts of symmetry, balance and estimation while developing our spatial awareness.  

Everybody was so proud of themselves for contributing to the final product and we can't wait to add it to our family play area.  Check out these photos below;

      Hooray!                      we are back at school!

Week 6

It is so wonderful to be back at school, reconnecting with our friends, getting back into routine and engaging in some fun learning activities!  Check out these pictures below to see what we have been up to.  Do you like our beautiful 'Gerald the Giraffe' art work?
