Dear Parent(s)/ Caregivers
I am very excited about teaching your children this term. It is going to be a productive term packed with learning.
For home learning, children will receive a home learning sheet, which will include spelling, and Basic Facts to practise daily. There will be no spelling this week as I will be testing them to determine their level.
Your child will be given a reader each night, and I am hoping you will find the time to listen to your son or daughter read aloud to you. Please sign their Reading Log each night.
On occasions, tasks may be given to them that are relevant to what we are learning in class.
Notices for the week will be put into their home learning sheet.
Home learning is to be handed in on Friday.
This is what we are focusing on this term:
Writing: Narratives, Recounts and Poetic writing
Maths: Addition and subtraction and Statistics
Health: Sun Smart, Life Education, Swimming and Boat Safety
Reading: Fiction and Non Fictional Text
PE: Striking and Fielding (soccer) Co-operative games
Maori: Marae visit and protocols
Music: Marae songs
Visual Arts: Carvings and Ceramics
As this term is going to be warmer I think it is important for student to bring a water bottle and they will be able to have this on their desk during class time. A sun hat is also recommended.
The students will be given an opportunity to have a “snack attack” during the first block, before morning tea. This snack must be a healthy.
If you ever have any questions I am more than happy to answer them. Either arrange a time to meet with me through the office, or e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
