Life Education Classroom visit today

Today we had our visit to the Life Education Classroom. We are looking at our feelings and being friends.

Today we talked about dipping into our feeling buckets. The children were informed that we have special buckets inside us called feeling bucket. This bucket is filled with lots of love and happiness, but sometimes people dip into our bucket and take some of our love and happiness away and this is what we call sad, unhappy, angry. 

The children also learnt a superhero song. Have look at your darlings singing the song. 

Here they are reaching up to the stars. Very proud of Room 4 today they had great manners and listen to their teacher Kapa in the Life Education Classroom. Room 4 you rock!!!! Whaea Esther is doing a hula in the class.

Fantastic start to the year

Welcome to Room 4 2015 Letter to Parents

Dear Parents, Caregivers & Family,

Welcome to Room 4 2015. I hope that you all have had an awesome break over Christmas.
We are slowly getting into the swing of being back at school. Children and I are all working hard at getting know each other.

Could I please ask for those families who have not bought stationery yet,  if its possible that I have the packs by this Friday (5th February), so that next week we can all start together in our new books.

Hot Weather
Our class gets very hot quickly, therefore the children are allowed to have drink bottles in class. These need to be named and are allow to go home every night. The children are then able to get a drink anytime without having to leave the class.

After School 
If your child is being picked up by older brothers or sisters and they have a special meeting place could you please let me know so that I can remind your child of where to go after school. Thanks.

If you wish to make contact with me about any issues please feel free to contact me via email. My email address is:

kind regards
Esther Komen
