St. Joseph's School School Otahuhu


Room 6



We have had a busy term to start 2019 in Room 6! We have enjoyed moving into the senior school and tackling new learning. 

We have talked about what we are grateful for in our lives since the school is focusing on ‘Gratitude’ this year. Together, we came up with a list of things that we are lucky enough to have, that other children in the world do not. We have compared our lives to those of the children in South Sudan. We took some our ideas about what we are grateful for and used these to create self portraits. 


Our Life Education lessons this year were fantastic! The focus of these lessons was how to show empathy and how to be a good friend. We talked about ways that we can make sure our class and school are friendly and welcoming for all. It was important to learn about how our actions and words can impact others and how we are responsible for the way we treat others. We know that it always has to be in kind and respectful way. It is always exciting to see Harold! 

Sports day for Room 6 was a highlight! We loved participating in the different events and it was great to see our classmates do well. The tabloid water activity was fun because we had to carry water from one bucket to another by going over our heads and through our legs. We found this a challenge because the team that was the driest was the winners! 

We are ready for all of our new learning this year!
