Term Letter

Tena koutou katoa, nau mai haere mai ki te tau o 2019 i roto i te Ruma 10.

Greetings and welcome to 2019 in Room 10

Room 10 is made up of year 5 and 6 students aspiring to be leaders of Rotokawa School. Our class has a well-balanced program and caters for lifelong learners. This year we will be practicing to be responsible digital citizens, using Chromebooks as a tool to demonstrate our learning. Sporting skills and fitness activities are also a vital part of our health and wellbeing. In response to the cultural aspects of our Māori students, pakiwaitara me purakau o tatou tipuna - stories and knowledge from our ancestors will underpin our foci. 

Term 2 in Room 10

Reading: In reading, we will be learning to use the language of summarising and identify the main ideas in the story.

Maths: To begin with we will be working on measuring units in time, comparing lengths and using measurement in baking. Later in the term, we will be revising multiplication and division.

Writing: This term procedure writing will be our focus to connect us with baking and measurement.

Homework: In Room 10 homework is not monitored. However, there are reading books and spelling lists available to collect if you or your child would like to consolidate learning at home.

Behaviour Management: Positive Behaviour 4 Learning (PB4L) school values are introduced each week these are our guiding principles at school.

Reminders: mid-year testing, progress achievements and reporting will take place this term.

If your child is away please contact the office with a reason for their absence.

Please feel free to contact me by email at or you are welcome to come into the class and meet me before or after school.
