My new school is called Wa Ora Montessori school. There is preschool, primary, high school and college. My class is called Totara. I think we have 46 students in my classroom. My class is huge. We have an upstairs place and you can work there. We do our work, and my 2 teachers (Richard and Joel) give us lessons in groups. You can also work outside, do some baking, woodwork, PE and gardening.
We also have class pets. We have 3 fish (Richard, Carol and Bubbles) and bunny called Sugar and a guinea pig called Spice.
Every Friday, there is a programme. You do a variety of things in different classes. Every term, we change our programme. Our first class is PE. We had football coaches but now they aren't coming any more. So Hanes (our PE teacher) asked what games we wanted to play. We chose 4 corner soccer and rounders. 4 corner soccer is where you get sorted into one of the 4 corners, get a number and when your number gets called out, you come into the middle and Hanes rolls a soccer ball and you have to score a goal through the cones in the diagonal corner your team is facing. Soon you get into the level where you get double points, or triple points. Rounders is like cricket, but you have to kick a ball and run to the bases and complete obstacles to the end, which is a home run.
We also have Te Reo class, music class, and art class.
Every fortnight Thursday, we have this thing called a community lunch. A group of my classmates will cook lunch and make dessert for us. They set up the tables and put decorations up. On the first day of community lunch, we had spaghetti bolognese and fruit kebabs. On the second time of community lunch, we had soup with breadcrumbs and we had the choice of chocolate or lemon muffin. I had a chocolate muffin.
And every Thursday, a library trolley comes to our classroom and we can issue books.
My brother is in Kauri, and my mum works in the preschool area!
