Welcome to Room Awhero
Kia ora and welcome to Room Awhero. This year we have 23 year 5, 6, 7, and 8 children. We are all excited to be back to school and looking forward to what 2021 will bring. This year we are focusing on establishing good relationships with each other and understanding how to set and reflect on goals for our learning. We are working hard on what it means to be a good friend and how we can make good choices in our behaviour and learning.
During Term 2 we completed a Rocket challenge through the programme Wonder Rocket. We learnt the science behind how rockets work and got to create our own rocket using a 1.5l bottle. We did a test flight and then were able to make modifications to our rockets. We added fins, nose cones and parachutes to see which of our rockets flew the longest and could stay in the air the most too. It was great fun!
"In a world where you can be anything, be kind"
Last term we performed at the Hui Ako in Balclutha. It was a great evening and the children were amazing. We are now hoping to be able to perform at this year's Otago Polyfest in September.
This term we are excited to learn about how we can make our school environment more inviting. We are also going to explore how we can encourage more native birds, bees and insects to our school.
