Room 4 Information

 

Years 2 and 3 

 

Welcome to Term 4

 

Dear Parents/Caregivers, 

 

It’s term four already. Can you believe it? There are lots of things happening in Room Four!

 

Art shirts

 

Please ensure your child has an art shirt at school for them to wear during art activities.  

 

Crafts

 

Please keep sending to school old boxes, ribbons and other such things for

our construction box. The children and I appreciate them! For the Mayfield Christmas Market Room Four are going to have another go at making bird feeders.

If you have at home branches or old wire that would work for this please send them to school. Closer to the time we will need parent helpers to help drill the holes in the wood.

 

Library Time

 

Room Four will visit the library every week. When your child is ready to return their book to the library remind them to put it into the return library box at school.

 

Seesaw

 

We will continue to use the app Seesaw to share our learning with you this term.  

 

Relievers

 

On Thursday’s I am released to carry out my school management responsibilities. This means Mr Kidd will teach most Thursdays with Mrs Leslie also teaching on the days Mr Kidd is unavailable.

 

 

Sleep over

 

Room Four are going to be having a sleepover.

Key information: Overnight 30th November to 1st December

The children will need to be picked up at midday on the Friday

We will require three parent helps which is made up of a mix of males and females

As we get closer to the time I will send home more information, including permission slips. If you have any questions regarding the sleepover please contact me. 

 

  

Science

This term out topic is called, Watch me grow!. We will be making observations of seeds growing, parts of flowers/trees and begin to pose ‘I wonder’ questions.This topic will also link into healthy eating and growing a positive mindset.

We will also have kapa haka every second Thursday.

 

 

PE

We will continue to have Vicky once a week teaching athletics skills and recapping on the learning from the year.
