Home Learning Ideas

Kia Ora.  The following are a list of websites and ideas that the children can be using from home to support their learning over the following weeks.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

https://maths.prototec.co.nz/ Basic facts practise

https://stepsweb.com/ . Spelling and phonics practise

https://www.whizz.com/en-nz/schools/maths-whizz/ . Maths activities based at the childrens' level.

https://login.readingplus.com/ A reading comprehension site that some of our students are working on.

https://www.writinglegends.com/ An online tool to help support the children with their writing.

https://www.literacyshed.com/home.html A website with many prompts and videos to support your child with writing ideas.

Please remember that this is a stressful and uncertain time for everyone including the children.  The tools above are there to be used when is works for you and your child.  Reading to and with your child, playing board games, baking etc are all great ways to utilise this time.
Please do not put too much pressure on yourself to make sure they are completing `school tasks' all day every day.  Nga Mihi

Welcome back!

Kia Ora, welcome back to term one!  We hope you’ve all had a great holiday. Over the next few weeks we will be spending time setting up classroom routines and expectations. Our classroom group programmes will begin next week as we are working on setting these up now. We are working on whole class mathematics with the topic being ‘money’. Throughout the term the children will be earning money for a variety of tasks both in class and in the playground. This money will go into their own online bank account where they will be saving towards something they wish to purchase from our class shop. Each child has an individual login to their bank account to track their money.  

Our year 4 students are learning about their chromebooks and how to complete aspects of their work on these devices. As the year goes on they will learn to share their learning through their individual blogs. In the meantime all of room two will share their work through this class blog, so be sure to come check it out regularly and leave comments.

We look forward to a fantastic term ahead!

Grandparents day

Last week we had Grandparent's day at school. It was so great to see all the special people in our children's lives and hear the stories about the ones who could not be with us on the day.

As part of our Year 4's being fully digital this year we have been revisiting the Kawa of Care. The children have worked through the rules, care of our chromebooks and how we keep ourselves safe online.  They then had to create a comic strip to show 3 of the rules.  Here are some examples.

Welcome to 2019.  This year Mrs Meikle is teaching in Room 2 on Thursdays and Fridays and Mrs Carruthers is teaching Monday-Wednesday.  
One of our main focuses this term is our 3 R's.  Respect, Resilience and Responsibility.  We have seen some great examples of these from students in our school so far this year.

ASB Money

Today we had Amy from the ASB money programme come to talk to each of the classes.  We learnt about eftpos and credit cards, the value of money and recognising the notes and coins.
Here are some photos of the activities we did.
