We have a marvellous open learning space with doors that opens out onto a deck and two spaces for small group learning.
Our New Entrants complete guided literacy and mathematics lessons with their teacher and have opportunities to mix with the rest of the Junior School for Inquiry, P.E. and Arts. In this way, children develop connections and friendships with many children.
‘Adventure time’ is a daily opportunity to play with, and explore, a range of activities. Favourites, such as play dough, water tray, blocks, cars, puppets, construction and craft, are provided for learning through play. This less structured time helps children transition to school more easily.
Music, talk, waiata, karakia, movement and poetry are actively promoted as part of our daily learning; we recognise that communication is an essential skill for all students to master and support our children to become confident communicators.
