our 'wild' bank
I love climbing trees and some of the trees here are so big. I feel like there's no limit to climbing.
read a book, do some research, find a quiet space, stretch your imagination . . .
our school library
Is there a better sight than to watch a classroom full of chattering children rush excitedly into the library and five minutes later all is quiet and everybody is absorbed in their own pile of books.
Easy access to books encourages children's reading.
paper, scissors, glue, cardboard, lego . . . this is a room for creating
Ruma Rimu is our space where the whole school gathers to come together and to create. This is where we meet for Monday morning assembly and school singing.
It's also a creative space where STEAM learning, Friday rotations (science and music) and other creative projects happen.
