New Entrants to Year 2

Kerri Taylor, Amanda Papps and Rochelle Standen

Kia ora whānau!

Welcome to Korimako.

We are a collaborative team of New Entrant - Year 2 students.

Our team is made up of 3 teachers - Kerri Taylor, Amanda Papps & Rochelle Standen.

Kerri is in the classroom Monday-Thursday, Amanda every day,  and Rochelle is in on Friday.

We also have a fabulous teacher aide, Janine, who works with us during our literacy time.


What are we all about?

When working in a collaborative environment, all teachers involved must combine their teaching philosophies, values and beliefs.

As a team, we value the importance of relationships. We get to know our students and their family in order to cater for their academic and social needs. Therefore we encourage parents and the wider community to engage in our programme and come and work/play alongside the tamariki!

We believe in the power of learning through play and offer a highly engaging and stimulating play-based learning programme throughout much of the day, with times for individual and group target teaching.  

How do we communicate?

To keep our whānau up to date with their child’s learning, as well as the important happenings at Ashley School, we use Seesaw.

Seesaw is a private online learning journal for each individual student.

Alongside this, we also have a public Seesaw blog, which contains content involving the whole Korimako team.
