What Now! @ Waitakere

July 20, 2019

How exciting to see our students on TV this morning on What Now!  Highlights for the year 5-6 team were seeing many of our students competing in games and getting gunged, Hodge getting Gunged by his class and an amazing performance from our school Kapa Haka group.  We all had to get out of bed extremely early on this cold Sunday morning but it was worth every second of it!  Check out our video on the right of this page under the home learning information.

This term we have been luck enough to have swimming lessons from Swimsation.  The focus has been on water skills, safety and swimming.  Be sure to ask your children about their experiences in the pool. 

Digital Technology

March 24, 2019

We are using digital technology tools in the year 5-6 team to learn a mix of skills encompassing productivity and creativity, getting students to share and collaborate on projects, give and take feedback, and to learn to touch type. If you have any questions about digital tech in the year 5-6 team please see your child's teacher so that we can talk you through what we are hoping to achieve. 

Marsden Bay Camp 2019

March 10, 2019

What a stunning week we had staying at the Marsden Bay camp. (Photos on the school Facebook page) Our students showed respect, responsibility and resilience and completed some amazing challenges.  From flying down the flying fox, kayaking, bouncing in the bumper balls to staying away from home, eating as a crowd and keeping a cabin clean the students excelled.  Trevor, Sue and their team were fabulous hosts and we hope to visit them again in the future.  A huge thank you from the Year 5-6 teaching team to all of the parents who came with us to camp.  You made this camp possible!

Learner Profile

April 26, 2018

The Year 5-6 team are exploring what good learners do. We are using the beach to describe this.

You might be on the shore where you are being supported to learn.

You might then move into the waves where you are guided in your learning.

Or you might be out to sea where you are more of an independent worker.

We can move between the different areas based on how we show our school values while learning. We can also use the aspects of these to help us set goals for our learning.
