Te Rapa Primary School




The Positive Behaviour for Learning School-Wide

framework, otherwise known as PB4L, is

helping Room 9 build a culture where positive behaviour and

learning is a way of life. The framework has been tailored

to our school’s own environment and cultural needs.

By strengthening relationships and creating more positive

home and school environments, we remove barriers to

engagement and improve students' chances to achieve at 

school and beyond.




We will be using the “Learning Assets” to guide our 

experiences and discoveries.


Term 4 Inquiry Focus

We continue to focus on 'The Arts' and how

 they connect to 'Culture'.



Please support your child by encouraging them to be responsible for their belongings, bringing book bags to school every day, completion of homework, delivering notices, and attending meetings.



Homework will go home on a Monday and is due back every Friday. The homework book is required to come to school daily so children can write their reading in and for teachers to monitor progress.



Children reading up to Level 21 are to choose a home reader from their book box dailyAll readers MUST go home in a book bag to ensure books are not damaged. Capable readers are to choose reading material from home and/or the library. 



Mathletics: The focus this year is on Mathletics. Children are expected to get 1000 points minimum per week. This is an excellent online programme. In week 3 your child will come home with their login details.

Focus: Prime Maths and Knowledge



P.E - Athletics/Swimming

The focus for Weeks 1-6 is Athletics - High Jump, Long Jump, Sprints and Ball Throw. All classes will be training daily. Please ensure that children wear appropriate clothes (or have them in their bags) to complete athletic activities. We will be starting Swimming, once the weather gets a little warmer later in the term.

Our library day is: Tuesday - book bags are required to take care of 

and protect the library books. Room 9 are able to take home two library each
