Room 4 - Mrs Michelle Middleton


Welcome back to Term 1 for 2017. Term 1 is an important term of building relationships and the beginning of our learning adventure together, full of wonderful experiences and discoveries.


We will focus on writing about our personal experiences and describing people, animals and objects. We will use the descriptors to help develop details in our writing: Number, Colour, Size, Shape, Doing, Position and Texture.

We will be also focusing on the correct formation and size of our letters and numbers.


We will focus on the new words we read and understanding what we read. It is important to ask and answer questions about different texts. Every night students will bring a reader home in their book bags to read to a family member.


In Mathematics we will focus on addition and subtraction, developing understanding of real life contexts and knowledge activities to help recall of basic facts, place value and simple fractions.  We will play games as a whole class and as part of the maths rotation.


The whole school will be involved in a Social Science Inquiry entitled “Our Place: Our School”. The Junior Syndicate will be focusing on “Our School Community” and what makes it special. Students will learn home Te Rapa School began and develop their knowledge of the significant people and events of the past have helped shape this school into a unique and special place of learning it is today.

        Physical Education

We will be swimming each day, weather permitting. Please make sure that togs are in students’ bags each day.  If a student is unable to swim, a note needs to be provided. Thank you.


Maori vowels, basic Greetings and Farewells. Students will share personal mihi.


We will focus on logging on and off the computers independently. We will use the programmes “Paint” and “Kidspiration” to complete work linking to our inquiry “Our School” Our Place”.
