Lockdown February 2021


 We are currently working on getting all of our Reading Eggs, Mathseeds and Fast Phonics usernames and passwords organized. 

Last year we used Epic for extra reading during lockdown.  I have created a log in for Room 7.  Please check your emails for log in details. 

Welcome to Room 7's web page.  My name is Miss McVeigh and I'm very excited to see what the fabulous learners will get up to in Room 7 this year.

Good Morning Room 7.  You will be aware that as of Sunday 11:59pm we moved into Alert Level 3 for the Auckland Region. 

The Ruru Whaanau teachers are working hard to set up some online learning platforms that we can use, if we need to.  Our class page will be updated regularly with information for you and your family.

On Friday we decided how we wanted our Class Treaty to look.  We brainstormed different ideas and came up with 5 rules.  These rules are promises that we all agreed to by signing our Treaty.

LEARNING TO LEARN You and I fit together like missing puzzle pieces.
