Welcome back to Term 4!

Last term of the year and our FINAL term EVER for Year 8's at Te Rapa! 

Our term is jam packed with camp, athletics, swimming, Big Day Out, Year 8 grad dinner and Graduation. Our aim this term is to put our best into ALL aspects of our learning, while maintaining our principles of Te Rapa HEART.

With so much going on, be sure to read the newsletter and keep up to date with alerts.

Learning Areas


We are using the Availll program which teaches reading through film. We will be looking at two films over the course of the term. Alongside this we will do some of our regular reading program. 


This term we're looking into the future...at our careers! We will be looking into what a career is, our skills, passions and dreams, and how we can start working towards our dream future.

P.E. and Health

We have Athletics in Week 5 so we are busy practicing the various disciplines involved. Once the weather warms up sufficiently we will begin our swimming program. 


All streamed math classes will continue from where they left off last term. A range of number knowledge skills, problem solving and the Prime Mathematics Programme will continue for Room 19 Math class.


We are preparing ourselves for high school by focusing on essay writing and information reports. 


We will continue to develop knowledge of spelling patterns, word origins, sentence structures and new vocabulary. We will also be focusing on proofreading & editing skills.


Mrs Hoskin will be taking Room 19 for Spanish lessons over the course of the year.
