Room 5

Welcome to Room 5

Room 5 is a class of Year 3 children at Tauwhare School taught by Mrs Cook. Our class value is curiosity and kindness. Children are encouraged to have curiosity about what we are learning and the world around us. We are a kind class where everyone is encouraged to display kindness towards others.


Hi my name is Linda Cook. I have been teaching for over 30 years and I love it. I am the Assistant Principal and enjoy working with the junior syndicate of the school. I have a Bachelor of Education, and a Diploma of Teaching. I am a trained Reading Recovery teacher. I am also the in-school lead teacher for our COL, at present I am leading an inquiry into Oral Language.

Another passion for me is Enviro-schools. I am proud to say we are a Green/Gold Enviro-school and we have a team of passionate students who lead many activities throughout the school.

I teach in Room 5 and have a wonderful group of Year 3 students.

Holiday fun

Room 5 wrote a recount about their holidays and put their stories in their sunglasses!

Room Five has had a lovely time studying the Rocky Shore, after our visit to Whale Bay. We created a mural of all the amazing creatures we saw.

In Room 5 we read the tree house treaty and then we decided to make our own classroom treaty about how we wanted our class to be.
