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.

Room 5's Classroom Treaty

Room 5 discussed what it meant to be in our class and made a shared treaty. We read the Tree hut Treaty picture book and discussed ways that we could make our class a happy and safe place to learn in together. We signed and put our handprints on our treaty.

Wearable Arts

The Wearable Arts was a great success. The children were so proud of their outfits. Learning to do their cross-stitch on all of their own costumes was time consuming but very rewarding. They were so proud that they could do the cross-stitch themselves. They loved their mighty shields and colourful beads too.
