PIWAKAWAKA

Team Pīwakawaka is taught by Miss Kate Martin. She loves teaching at Strath Taieri School and thinks the kids here are the bee's knees.

 

In Team Pīwakawaka you will find the youngest members of Strath Taieri School. Just like our namesake we are cheeky and inquisitive. We love learning in a fun, curious and hands-on way. We have a strong emphasis on settling into school life, developing positive relationships with others and becoming self-managers. We do this through play-based learning. Every day we have core instruction in the following areas:

 

- Structured Literacy aimed at developing reading, writing and spelling skills

 

- Mathematics using Numicon

 

- Inquiry/Topic which we integrate into our literacy and numeracy curriculum.

 

Highlights for 2022 have been incubating and hatching our own chickens. We have also enjoyed growing vegetables from seedlings and eating them when they were ready. We are very partial to a slice (or two) of courgette cake!
