GETTING STARTED: TERM 1 2015

KIA ORA and WELCOME to ROOM 4!Term 1 2015

Class Goal: To be independent, life long learners.


2015 IS GOING TO BE AN AWESOME YEAR!

I’m really looking forward to exploring technology this year, and going further down our path of digital learning.  

I encourage parents and family to come and have a chat, visit the classroom and see some of the work we are doing in Room 4.   Our classroom blog and google site are also a great way to see what’s going on in our class.  

If you have questions at any time during the year, please feel free to pop in for a visit after school, or to ring and set up a time to meet. 

General Reminders

Swimming

Our P.E. focus for term 1 is swimming.  It is very important that students bring their togs and towel everyday so they are able to participate in these daily swimming sessions and water activities.

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Monday.  It will also be available on the class blog and google site.  Completing homework tasks is a great way to take learning outside the classroom, and to create a link between home and school. Activities are designed to support and extend the reading and maths learning we are doing in the classroom.
This year we also have a school Homework Passion Project, which has some fantastic challenges.  Check out our class site for more details about it.  

Tools for learning

It was really neat to see students arriving with the books and stationary they needed to start the year.  Having the right equipment really makes a big difference to the smooth running of our classroom and lets us focus on the learning rather than getting held up finding the tools we need.  I’d really appreciate your help keeping pencil cases up to date during the year.
