Buddy Class

In Week Seven, we worked with our buddies in Room 24. We have been helping our buddies draw around their hands and then cut them out as part of a health activity. We're also going to use the hands to make a friendship tree for Harmony Day.  We have also set up a regular reading session with students from Room 11 visiting twice a week to read with their buddies.

    

  

 



Fundraising Coin Trail

























In Week 6, the Student Representatives ran a coin trail for the different year groups as their fundraising for Term One. Thank you to everyone who bought in coins for the trail. We raised $749.70 for the Bali Kids Orphanage.

Thank you to all the parents who attended the Parent Information Evening in Week Three. 

At the meeting I went through the school and class routines and expectations for the year. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, via the diary or by arranging an appointment. On the evening we handed out the Year Six standards for Literacy and Numeracy. For those unable to attend, a copy of the standards was sent home with your child.

Aussie Day



On Friday of Week 2, the school celebrated Australia Day by dressing up with an Australia theme. In class, we have been investigating how we celebrate our national day and how New Zealand, one of our nearest neighbours, celebrates their day. We compared and contrasted Australia Day and Waitangi Day. We found that we had a lot in common with each other but also some key differences. The class showed their information in a Venn Diagram.
The money raised at Aussie Day is being donated to the Bushfire Appeal which has had such a huge impact on our country. During week two we looked at bushfires and talked about having a bushfire plan for emergencies. We then used our work to write poems about the bushfires.

Term 1 Student Representatives



Congratulations to the students in Room 11 (Raiba, Grace, Nathan, Akash, Steve, Natalina & Alphons) who were appointed as Student Reps. for this term. I am looking forward to working with all the Year Sixes in this group. Job allocations have already been sorted out and students are enjoying their new responsibilities. Last week, students had a meeting with Ms Roberts to ensure they understand their roles and responsibilities and the school expectations.

Welcome to 2020

Image result for note from the teacher


Welcome to Room 11's blog. I'm looking forward to working with all the students in Room 11 this year. Everyone seems to be settling in to new routines. My expectations of the class and our long-term goals were discussed for the year - 






  • ORGANISATION
  • WORKING TOGETHER
  • NOT BEING AFRAID TO MAKE MISTAKES
  • RESPECTING ONE ANOTHER
  • BEING A RESPONSIBLE ROLE-MODEL
  • and importantly ALWAYS TRYING OUR BEST

Students have started working on their Student Representative Speeches. Last week we heard the first batch of students as they tried to persuade the Year Six staff and members from the Administration team as to why they should be chosen to represent the students of our school. The standard of speeches has been very high and the staff have truly been impressed. We look forward to working with all the Student Representatives over the year.

On Friday morning, we announced the chosen Student Representatives for Term One, at a special assembly. When selecting Student Representatives we look for equal representation from all classes and a mix of abilities. This does mean that some students who delivered speeches may not be selected in Term One.
