Reading, Writing and Maths

And more....

In Room 4 we do Reading, Writing and Maths in the first 2 blocks of the day, before lunch.  However, there are many other subjects that we look at over the course of the week.

Daily Exercise

Exercising before learning is proven to improve results

In Room 4, we recognise that regular exercise is important for not only keeping ourselves fit but also for  getting our brains ready for learning. We enjoy a variety of games at fitness time that are fun and encourage teamwork and sportsmanship.

Alphabet   Research

Individual work on individual passions

Every term  year  7 and 8 students complete some alphabet research - self-directed home learning about a topic of their choice.

Some of the projects completed this year are:

  • Famous Scientists

  • Otters

  • Wellington Hurricanes and Phoenix 

  • Famous Ballerinas 

  • Pavlova

  • Octopuses

Art

Kiwiana images

This year, at the end of our inquiry unit on ‘People of New Zealand’, Room 4 students had a go at creating their own kiwiana images.  Our aim was to draw simple, bright images on a bold coloured background.  Students could choose between pastel or paint.

Technology

Woodwork and design

Every Wednesday afternoon our year 7 and 8 students head to Mt Cook school. Last term they did woodwork and design, building boxes and lights. This term the robot theme continues - lego robots with motors and coding to control them.

Sharing our Skills

We love to get out in the community and share our skills. Our year 6 students regularly visit local pre-schools and read to the youngsters.

Physical Education

Floorball, cross-country, basketball, football and more

So far this year we have taken part in coaching sessions for floorball and handball at the ASB Centre. In Term 2 we will be coached in football by Island Bay United.

In Term 4 we attend the Kilbirnie Aquatic Centre and take part in activities such as kayaking, diving, snorkeling and water safety.

Through out the year we have the opportunity to join the Southern Zone competitions for athletics, swimming, cross-country and cricket.
