Welcome to Pātiki Lightning Flyers ! I am very excited to be teaching the Year 1, 2 and 3 class this year and have lots of exciting learning opportunities and ideas in mind to make this a rich and memorable year for your child.
The Turua School Weekly Newsletters are now sent in an e-format. Don’t forget to check regularly each week to find out about what’s happening in the the school community in the way of News, Information and Upcoming Events.
If you have any concerns about your child’s wellbeing or progress, please feel free to email me anytime or have a word before or after school.
Room 7 also is connected to an app called Class Dojo. This is like our very own class Facebook and is accessible only to the Parents, Family and Students of Room 7. The Class Dojo has a message facility (similar to messenger) That allows me to message parents individually. (See me to get connected)
At times we may need to make an appointment to discuss matters further.
Our library day is Thursday. All library books need to be returned to the library each week so that your child can get new books out .
The school’s expectation is that children in the junior school will spend approximately 20 minutes each night on home learning. In Room 7, this will include:
From Monday to Thursday, children will bring home a guided reading text (small book) and Friday a poem to read with you. Please complete the yellow reading journal with your child and keep it in their book bag.
A weekly spelling list of four WordLab words comes home each week. The expectation is that the students practise the ‘Word of the Day’ each day by completing one of the activities in the front of the notebook. Its a good idea to quickly review these words again on Friday to help consolidate the spelling patterns that the students have been learning through the week via these words.
Please don’t forget to return the readers, notebooks and poetry books to school each day as there are various classroom follow up activities that cannot be completed easily if your child has no access to their individual copy of the books.
HATS AND SUNSCREEN
Due to Turua’s Sun Smart School policy brimmed hats are Compulsory during Terms 1 and 4. Students are required to wear these in order to play in the school playground and sunny areas of the school. The students without hats are required to play under the Sun Shade area outside Room 4. Please remember to apply sunscreen before coming to school. There is a small amount of sunscreen available in the classroom for those that forget to Slip! Slop! Slap!
Dont forget to label hats preferably on the body of the hat as well as the tag.
