An exciting term ahead with speeches, cross country, Waimaths, a short story writing competition, camp fundraising and production amongst the mix. Students have focused learning goals derived from their next learning steps and key competency personal goals. Please touch base any time to see what we are doing or check on your child’s progress.


Focuses for Term 3


Mathematics - Streamed classes continue to focus on Measurement and Geometry for the next six weeks then will move into Statistics for the remainder of the term. We also have two teams busily training for the Waikato Waimaths competition which will be held in Week 4.


Writing - Speeches will be a major focus for the first two weeks, preparing for our Syndicate speech competition in Week 7.  Following this, students will be learning how to write short stories.


Grammar - Continue to develop knowledge of spelling patterns, word origins, sentence structures and new vocabulary. We will also be focusing on proofreading & editing skills.


Reading - Our reading comprehension  focuses for this term are Reorganisation and Evaluation. Many of our reading texts will align with our Arts Inquiry topic.


Inquiry - Our main focus for this term will be “The Arts” to run alongside our school production. Looking at how art pieces can be used to express ideas, feelings, culture and to promote messages to specific audiences.


Physical Education - The focus for Term 3 will be building stamina and endurance through running to prepare for our Whole School Cross Country. Weekly Jump Jam & Team building fitness sessions will also be activities that we will use to keep our students fit. Please make sure your child has a change of suitable clothing for P.E. as we train for our cross country event this term.
