Room One - New Entrant/Year 1 Fiona van den Brink Room One Currently we have eleven children in Room One. Seven children have started school this year, the rest are our ‘old’ friends from last year. We have started off the year learning all about making and keeping friends. It was great to visit Harold and Tim in the Life Education Caravan, we learnt all about Keeping Ourselves Safe. We are all learning to say our pepeha and a few of us can even say it in front of the class. In Literacy, some of us are learning the sounds that letters make and others are learning Heart Words. We have all had lots of fun making rhyming words and breaking words into syllables. For Maths we are finding out about numbers that come before and after a number, and putting numbers in order. We are starting to put some work in our books. It is fun using them and trying things for the first time.
