INSPIRE – CREATE – EXPLORE
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
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.
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.

Greetings and Farewells. Students will share personal mihi.
We will focus on logging
