Students enjoyed working on this Maori legend. They found it very interesting and wanted to learn more about the mountains of New Zealand and where they are situated. Here are some of the completed work from the students. Well done Room 13.
We have been looking into recycling and what we can do to reduce waste. We discovered that we are able to reuse some of the things we recycle.
One of the homefun tasks this week was to reuse a cardboard box. Students then had to design a puzzle on the back, cut it out and give it to a friend at school to build. Here is a group of students before school exchanging and building puzzles.
This term Rooms 13 and 14 will be working together for Maths. Based on current testing and achievement, this will determine which class and which teacher your child will go to for term three. Throughout the term, your child will have the opportunity to work with both Miss Glen and Mrs van Zyl.
This style of teaching is part of our innovative learning model at Reremoana School. Both teachers will be planning collaboratively to ensure that teaching is targeted to the specific needs of our students.
Your child will be working in either Room 13 or 14 during the first block each day.
Your child’s Maths teacher will teach and assess their needs in Maths; however you are welcome to speak with either teacher to discuss your child’s progress.
These groups are flexible and are likely to change as the term progresses.
Regular basic facts home work will be sent home and tested in your child’s own classroom each Friday.
We are extremely excited to be working collaboratively in maths this term and we hope that our students are going to thoroughly enjoy this experience.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with either teacher.
Road Safety Today Constable Nikki came to visit us in Room 13. She gave us a better understanding of road safety and why it is so important. Effective road safety education helps students contribute to everyone’s safety over the long term.
A safe system includes safe roads, safe speeds, safe vehicles and safe road use.
Students who individually and collectively participate in a safe system act responsibly, articulate
high expectations and ask questions about how the system meets everyone’s needs. Children,
family and whānau, teachers and other agencies are all involved. Here Constable Nikki is asking us questions about crossing the road?
