Te Rapa Primary School

 Room 1 Term 4

We have gone straight back into our routines and are working hard. Our class continues to increase in size.


This term we will continue focussing on:

  • alphabet letter names and sounds
  • improving letter formation in printing
  • learning to spell the most frequently used words in our word lists
  • learning how to write lots of words independently in our stories
  • learning about what is a sentence
  • counting to 20
  • learning about what comes before and after for the numbers to 50
  • counting groups of objects
  • recognising writing and reading numbers


For those of us who get proficient in the first things, we are also adding

            Fluency when we are reading

            trying to read lots more

            thinking about our reading and answering questions about what is happening in the


             being able to independently retell what had happened in the story

            writing 1 or more sentences

            trying to write harder words by listening to the sounds the word makes

            learning about joining and separating sets

             counting to 50 and naming the number that comes just before or just after

             reading harder numbers




Our Inquiry will have a Science focus and the title is ‘What happens next?’.  We are lucky to be having a trip to a Popcorn making factory.


For our P/E we will be working towards our athletics fun day. In our sport time we will be learning different ways to throw, do long jump and high jump and run fast.


We will be keeping busy this term.
