Room 19 - Mrs Marian Conder (Year 7 & 8 Team Leader)

Welcome To Room19

Term 2 2017

Welcome back to a term that is jammed packed with learning and exciting activities as we head into the winter months. A class website and blog will be available soon so that you can keep upto date with classroom events, messages and highlights of our learning. We are also beginning fundraising for our School Camp to Motutapu Island (Term 4). Keep your eye out for notices.

 Outlined below are our major learning focuses for the term:


       Reading will have a guided focus of inference. We will be investigating and practising the skills of understanding the author’s message and reading ‘inbetween’ the lines of texts.

       Writing skills this term will continue to develop our understanding and use of complex sentence structures, the use of description and developing the skills needed to write an effective short story.

       Spelling lessons include learning about spelling rules, spelling patterns and developing vocabulary that we can use in our writing.


       Streamed math classes will continue Number and Algebra for the first three weeks then move onto Geometry and Measurement until the end of the term. Students in Prime Math will be moving into multiplication and division and fraction work.


       This Term’s Inquiry has a Science context ‘Living World’. Our deep understandings for this unit of Inquiry are:

      That living things are grouped into a classification system.

      Living things adapt and change to their environments and have similar processes

      That humans can take steps to sustain the living world.


       P.E. this term will be a combination of winter sport skills (through games) and jumpjam. It is really important students come to school prepared with an appropriate change of clothing each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for P.E. lessons.


Students will either be attending Kapahaka lessons or will be getting involved in the classroom Te Reo programme. This term’s programme will consist of lessons around developing Maori vocabulary about; classroom objects, colours, animals, numbers and using this vocab in discussion using Te Reo. We will also investigate myths and legends and develop some art work around the use of koru patterns.


 Science, Visual Art, Soft Materials, Technology.

 Your child will need to arrive at school by 8:30am for the daily roll each Thursday in Term 2. Please make sure your child comes to school in covered shoes for technicraft due to health and safety regulations. Students travel by bus to Hamilton Junior High School for classes and return by 12pm.
