An introduction to our class:
Welcome to Room 1 at Henderson North Primary, in Auckland, New Zealand. We have 15 boys and 13 girls that are a mix of year 5 and year 6.We have a programme called BYOD (Bring your own Device), where students bring devices to school to help with their studies. We also have a 40 Book Challenge, students read books and record them in their 40 Book Book. We have decorated our classroom with artwork and displays to help with Writing and Reading and for more subjects. In our school we have different classes for Maths, but not for any other subject.
In our class the students speak lots of different languages including: everybody speaks english, 5 kids speak Maori, 2 speak Tongan, 4 speak Samoan, 3 speak Hindi, 1 speaks Gujarati, 1 speaks South African, 1 speaks Cook Island, 1 speaks Thai, 2 speak Niuean, 1 speaks Tagalog and 2 kids speak Cantonese. Its cool that our class speak a variety of languages at home.
We have a swimming pool, teachers take students there at least two times a week in summer. Our school is a PB4L school, PB4L is an acronym for Positive Behaviour 4 Learning. Furthermore, we have PB4L tokens, children get these for being Respectful, Responsible, Friendly, a Learner and being Safe.
