Kia ora and welcome to Lower Bridge!  

Our Year 4 and 5 class is known for its passion for sustainability, science, taking action, our love of healthy active learning, and having the best view of the harbour. 

We run the school recycling programme, making sure that we are recycling responsibly and encouraging each other to reduce and reuse as much as possible.  In Lower Bridge we speak te reo everyday, building our skills in te reo and our understanding of Te Ao Māori, and we incorporate nature and our place into learning whenever we can.

In Lower Bridge we are becoming more fluent with reading and writing, and building on our numeracy and problem solving skills. By Year 4 and 5 rather than just learning to read, write and do maths, we are now reading, writing and using our maths to learn even more! We are getting to know ourselves as learners, finding our strengths and knowing how we learn best. 

In Lower Bridge we use the inquiry process in our learning and we are building our skills to research, investigate, and then use the information we have learned to do something with it.  

Have you seen the new school water fountains that save water by not leaking? We identified that our old fountains were wasting precious water, so we researched the importance of water conservation, and took action by asking the Board to invest in new fountains. 

Learning in Lower Bridge is busy, active and full of creativity and curiosity!
