Te Rapa Primary

Te Rapa Primary School

Welcome to Term 3

Our first Inquiry this term is 'Animals in Action'.  Building on our learning from last term this Inquiry will have a technology focus as we design and make an enrichment toy for an animal over 2 days.

We have lots of visitors coming to school this term to share their expertise as part of our schoolwide Arts focus.

This term we will be working towards:

- Being a great friend

- Using Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T in both the classroom and the playground

- Following instructions

- Co-operating and working together

- Talking and listening to others

- Carrying our own school bags and doing our 'before school' jobs independently

- Learning the names and sounds of letters, blends and digraphs

- Holding our pencil or pen correctly and forming letters the right way around

- Writing lots of the early words by ourselves

- Writing stories, sometimes by ourselves, using all our skills we are learning through Word Work

- Reading stories, poems and nursery rhymes

- Counting forwards, backwards, reading, writing, knowing before and after numbers to 50

- Learning to log on and off the computer, using Reading Eggs by ourselves, taking photos on the iPads, using features of Word, using Poplet and Kidspiration to record our ideas

- Practising running and getting fit for our school cross country event

It is going to be an exciting term as we gain lots more knowledge and new skills!
