Welcome to Room 3 Term 1 2019

I hope the children in Room 3 had a fantastic Christmas break and managed to have some fun in good weather.  I am excited about what this first school term  has in store for us! 

In Room 3 we have 25 fantastic students and I am looking forward to teaching and learning along with my students this term.

Our  Inquiry this term is entitled “Learning with HEART”  it involves the students discussing what groups we belong to and will be integrated with our Positive Behaviour for Learning school wide focus of Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T.

E - Excellence

A - Aroha

This will be integrated with our classroom rules and treaty.


MATHS We will be focusing on Addition and number knowledge to 20.  We will be starting Prime Maths later in the term.

READING/WRITING - The children in Room 3 will be grouped according to their abilities for our Reading/Writing and Mathematics programmes.  

Maori - We will be learning basic Maori greetings as well as learning our mihi.

P.E - Our P.E.  programme is swimming everyday.  Once it gets to cold to swim we will be focusing on fundamental skills


I am looking forward to a busy and exciting term for 2019, we have so many fun activities planned for this term so keep an eye on the school app as well as newsletters.
