Welcome to 2017 and an exciting year of learning at St Clair School in Room 14!

This site can be used at home and at school. It is a great place for whanau and friends to see what we have been up to in Room 14 and also a place where the children can easily share their learning and access learning tools.

Term 1 week 1 - Climbing Mountains!


This week we have been talking about 'mountains' that can pop up in our learning and also our friendships. Mountains pop up when we might be finding something tricky or when we might be having a problem.


Friendships - We read the story 'Pumpkin Soup'. It was about three friends called Duck, Cat and Squirrel who came across a problem (mountain) in their friendship. We helped them climb the mountain (solve the problem) and talked about other ways we can climb mountains when we come across tricky situations with friends! The video clip for the book is above.

Climbing Mountains in our learning!

Sometimes we need to persevere when things get tricky. This is like climbing a mountain! It gets hard and sometimes we want to give up! But if we can climb the mountain and get to the top, we can do anything!


Check out this video of the little bird persevering and showing resilience as they climb the mountain.
