Te Rapa Primary

Te Rapa Primary School

Room 19!

Welcome back to Term 3!

With parent interviews, speeches, passion projects and the school production, Room 19 has a full on term! 

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.

Parents are always welcome to contact me regarding learning and queries at awhitfield@terapa.school.nz

Learning Areas


This term we focus on the skill of evaluating, which combines the two skills of reorganisation and inference.  Remember to encourage your children to be reading 20 minutes nightly! 


Our Term 3 inquiry is all around the arts. We are doing a deep dive into what it means to learn creatively by exploring our interests through our 'Passion Projects'. We can't wait to see what we achieve! 

P.E. and Health


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 have spent a large chunk of the first part of the term learning about speech writing. We are spending the latter half of the term writing persuasive essays.  


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.

Student Reflection

Room 19 students will take turns to share a piece of their work in this space.


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

Technicraft - Hamilton Junior High School
The second half of the year has begun, meaning that Room 19 will now be attending Technicraf in the afternoons. We will leave from school at around 11.45am, returning just before the bell at around 2.50pm.
