Welcome to Room 4 Term 1 2020
A very warm welcome to Room 4 for 2020. I am Miss Morgan Foster, the class teacher for Room 4. Michelle Foster also teaches in Room 4 most Tuesdays on my release day and when needed.
Swimming - The Junior Syndicate will be swimming every day, weather permitting, and it would be very helpful if everything, including towels, are named and in a bag. Swimming is compulsory so if your child is unable to swim please send a note to school with them. If the weather is looking indecisive before school, still send your child with their togs as the weather can clear as the day progresses.
Library - Room 4 will be visiting the library every Friday. Please help your child to make sure that they have their library book back at school by Friday morning so they can choose a new one.
ICT - Starting late Term One the students in Room 4 will visit the DMC (Digital Media Centre) once a week. In here they have access to programmes such as paint, PM+ and Kidspiration.
Literacy - The main focus for Term 1 in Room 4 is handwriting, phonics and alphabet knowledge. We will also be doing weekly shared poems/books, alongside many forms of reading. These are all essential parts of our everyday routine.
Mathematics - We will be doing Pr1me Maths and exploring numbers in the range of 0-100. Initially we will learn a variety of Maths games that will coincide with our learning.
Te Reo Maori - Our focus for this term is going to be on learning Na Mea Karaihi (classroom objects) in Te Reo Maori.
The Arts - We will be incorporating drama into our big book as we explore characters and their personalities. Visual art and crafts will be completed throughout the term.
