INSPIRE – CREATE - DISCOVER
Our Inquiry this term has a Curriculum focus in the learning area of 'The Arts'. This term we are expressing ourselves by developing knowledge and understanding of; Visual Art, Dance, Drama, and Music.
This term also is very important as we have our biannual production which is a very exciting time for the staff and students at Te Rapa Primary School. The title of the production is: 'The Bigger Picture'.
In Mathematics this term we are focusing on addition and subtraction, developing understanding of real life contexts and knowledge activities to help our recall of basic facts, place value and fractions. We will continue to use Prime Maths. We will play knowledge games as a whole class and as part of the Mathematics group rotation.
For Writing we will be writing about our personal experiences and describe people, animals and objects. We will be learning to write and expand on our ideas to include who, what, where and when. We will learn to use the descriptors to help develop details in our writing: Number, Colour, Size, Shape, Doing, Position and Texture.
Reading: Shared and guided reading daily – focusing on retell of main ideas with supporting details and comprehension of fiction and non-fiction texts. It is vital that students read everyday at school and at home.
This term we will be focusing on 'Winter Ball Sports' such as soccer, netball, hockey, miniball for P.E. It is important that we remember to bring suitable clothes and shoes for the sports. We will continue throughout the term to focus on fundamental skills and small ball skills as well.
Our Library day is Friday. It is important that students bring their book bag everyday to school. If they do not return their library book on Friday, the students will not be able to get a new one. Finally "No Book bag - no library book".
