We are an active, energetic and inquisitive class of 5 year olds. We are non-verbal with high to very high needs. In room 9 there are 2 boys and 2 girls, 2 very supportive, loving and hard-working Teacher Aides, Stephanie and Linda. Our teacher is Sylvia and with our wonderful teacher aides they help us with our learning. All of our teachers think we are an awesome bunch of tamariki with oodles of talents.
Every few weeks we have a release teacher, Mike, who comes in to work with us. We also have specialists teachers in for Speech and Language, Maori and Music also visiting our class regularly (weekly or fortnightly) this year. We are also very lucky to have Music with Jono on Wednesdays and Waiata with Aiden on Fridays
In Room 9 we are focusing on Play Based Learning around our theme of WATER - and we love water play. This term we are swimming each Thursday at the Aquatic Centre and we visit our BAse School, Kea Street, to do PMP, ride bikes and jump on the trampoline.
