Welcome to Room 15

Term 2 has been full of smiles, laughter and so much fun.  Keep warm and stay well.

Thank-you to our whanau who help our tamariki, come to school everyday. Your support will help us win the attendance trophy!

 Your continuous aroha in sending our children with healthy kai, helps them in their learning. Thank you.


WALT: inform new students on a lockdown procedure.
Do you know,  when you come to Yendarra School, we practice lockdown drills.  It is important to practice at times, so you know what to do on a real lockdown.   You will never know, when a real one will happen.   You always stay cool, calm and still, you just have to  be prepared!  If you're outside don’t scream or shout, go to the nearest classroom.  Make sure you're under the table.  Be brave when a lockdown happens and don’t be afraid.  Trust your teacher, Mrs Dunlop, Mrs Greig and Mrs Takatainga who will endeavour to keep us safe.  You know it’s not a joke.

We Are Learning:  movement in small spaces.
In performing arts Room 15 is working on a line dance.  Room 15 were amazing, we were like cowboys and cowgirls. The music was making us go crazy, but we were having so much fun.  Our aim was to move altogether and all in beat. Our next step is to add hip hop and cultural dance movement to our line dance.  Who would like to join us?  Are up for the challenge?  By Brieze


On Friday afternoon, Ms Harrison noticed that Rm 15  had been putting the rubbish into the wrong bins.  Ms Harrison tipped out the recycling bin, compost bin and the general rubbish bin.  As a whole class we sorted the rubbish, recycling plus compost into the correct bins.  This was exciting! Not everyone was too happy, but we did it.

We are currently looking at the time line, of how long it takes, for different items to break down. So far we have:

Apple core: 2 months, Banana skin: 4 weeks, Orange skin: 5 weeks.
We have an experiment in our class.  We will be observing this, over the next 2 months.  This will be fun.  Will keep you posted.   By Daytona


We Are Learning : the official New Zealand language (Sign language)
Week 3 was the language week of sign.  We have been learning this, it’s been fantastic.  We have learnt to do our name, home, homework, teacher, can I help you, focus and friend.  We are hoping to talk with our friends in sign language.  I enjoy this.  We learn altogether, I want to teach my friends in another class.  By Kalia-mata
