Room 1 


Kia Ora and welcome to Room 1 2024.

 Hi, my name is Lisa Walker and I have the awesome job of teaching 30 enthusiastic and creative Year 5 and 6 students.  

Welcome to Term 1

 Our learning focus this term is:

Health and PE: Swimming, water safety skills and cooperative  games

Math:  Our All about Me unit covers a range of topics from measurement, number and statistics.

Writing: Poetry and memoir writing using descriptive language.

Reading: Developing our comprehension, vocabulary and summarising skills. We will be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction texts.

Arts: Visual art.

 For myself as a teacher, I believe in working alongside my students to help them to achieve their goals to the best of their ability.   Our classroom is a room where mistakes are seen as opportunities for learning and personal growth, where we are hard working, creative, we work together to show our Roar values and we have fun.

Every Monday, students will set up their homework for the week -  the homework is made up of a language activity, reading for 15 minutes each night,  basic fact problems and at times, some research or topic work. 

Have a great day !

Lisa Walker
