Te Rapa Primary School

Hello and welcome to Room 3, Term 2, 2019. 

 My name is Abbie Gibson and I am the new teacher in Room 3. I have come from a small town called Tapanui, in Clutha District, Otago. I have enjoyed beginning to get to know the students of Room 3 and look to the term to come.

MATHS - We will be continuing with Prime Maths this term which focuses on addition and subtraction. We will also do some learning about statistics and measurement.

READING/WRITING - Students will be grouped for reading and writing. We will be focusing on developing independence in writing (using a sound card) and cementing our knowledge of all the letters of the alphabet through Yolanda Soryl Phonics. Our handwriting will focus around 'Casey the Caterpillar.'

Maori - We will  continue learning our mihi and do some learning around animals.

P.E - Our P.E.  will focus on running for the first half of the term as we prepare for Cross Country. We will do training most days.

Inquiry: Our inquiry is titled 'To Infinity and Beyond'. As we launch into this inquiry we are building a space shuttle complete with boosters and spare fuel tanks to get us there.
