Room 5 is a Year 6, 7 and 8 composite class ranging from 9-13 years of age. We are a focused class with the expectation of developing leadership, supporting each-other, collaborating, striving to meet our goals and being the best learners we can be. We enjoy learning and inquiring about the world we live in and we work hard to model and use our AWHINA values. We put a lot of time and effort into thinking about what our values look like and we are guided by these across all aspects of our learning.

We start the day with taumata and fitness. Each week we visit the library, practice kapa haka with Matua Horrace, and enjoy sharing our mahi at our school sharing assemblies. We use a range of digital technology to support our classroom learning.

Every day we develop our literacy and numeracy skills within a range of contexts, linking to our inquiry learning where ever possible and connect this learning to experiences outside the classroom. This year our inquiries will be guided by Our Place, Way Back When, Here Today Gone Tomorrow and Changes.

We understand the importance of challenging ourselves to take risks in both our learning and developing life skills, and to always try our best.

Website: Our Room 5 website houses resources and links to learning sites and apps. We use our website in our everyday class routine. Each child has had the link to allow their access to the site sent to their email.
