Lower Bridge are a class of Year 5 and 6 students. They are active and creative, and have an amazing view of our harbour! Lower Bridge are taught by Miss Maz on Mondays to Thursdays, and by Mrs Foote on Fridays!  

Teaching programmes are varied and exciting, capturing the many interests of the children in Lower Bridge, and stretching their thinking.

The bulk of each day revolves around literacy and numeracy with many opportunities for the children to work independently and in groups. Afternoons in Lower Bridge are times we work on aspects of the current Inquiry topic through a vast range of activities. This year our overall theme is “Movement and Migration” and we are diving into scientific learning of physics concepts, and social science and history learning about how our ancestors navigated their way to Aotearoa New Zealand.

Children in Year 5 and 6 are encouraged to set SMART goals for their learning and work towards achieving them by identifying the next steps in their learning and seeking help from their peers, teachers and whanau. 

Year 5 and 6 is a great year to develop leadership skills and children in Lower Bridge rise to the occasion. Year 6 is the first year they can stand for Rōpū House Leader and they take this seriously, writing their convincing campaign speeches and working on delivery of these to convince their Rōpū House to elect them. We love to see our Lower Bridge crew stepping up and showing us the leaders they will become as they move onto their final primary years.
