Welcome to 2020

A new decade - A new teacher

Welcome back to school in 2020, my name is Georgia Black and I will be amongst the teaching staff in Puawaitanga this year. Based in Room 10 I am back to the block my teaching career started and I'm very excited!

I started my teaching career in 2018 with the hope I could inspire every student to be the best they can be. I continue to strive towards this goal. 

I look forward to seeing students on the 29th of January for a year jam packed full of fun learning.

Army Visit!

Recently local army units visited West End School. It was a lovely sunny day and Room 10 had an opportunity to meet the soldiers throughout the day. They also managed to explore some armored vehicles. They asked some great questions and took full opportunity of such a unique learning experience.

Marble Runs and Straw Boats

This term has seen Room 10 really show how they can work together to produce some pretty clever designs. A few weeks ago they designed their own marble runs and this week saw some pretty impressive straw boats. Soon we will see if they float.

Term 4 is up and away!

What a busy start to the term.

The kids have been getting outside and practicing their athletic skills with fantastic participation from everyone.

In class we have been getting stuck into our learning with lots of effort and smiles.

End of Term 3

It has been a busy term with lots of learning. It has been great to see Room 10 explore our local waterways and even get out for some skipping practice.

 Rest up Room 10 and get ready for Term 4!

Army Men Launchers

Room 10 have really been showing how they can work together and problem solve when given some challenging construction projects by Miss Donald.

These army men launchers worked really well and it is great to see Room 10 working together to achieve a shared goal.

Well done.

Our Water

The kids have been getting stuck in learning about our local river and ways to keep it clean and healthy.

We managed to get down to the Manawatu River to learn about water testing then we had a guest speaker from Horizons. We talked about ways we can keep sediment and pollution out of our streams and rivers.
