Class treaty

Room 3 have all signed the class treaty! Following on from the previous 'brainstorm' post, Room 3 brainstormed rules for our classroom so that we can have a safe and collaborative learning environment. We had a class discussion about grouping rules into categories, from there we came up with 5 rules for our classroom that we are all happy with.

Yr 4 students have the opportunity to access a really fun and educational maths programme 'Mathletics' which helps to consolidate their learning in mathematics, as it relates to what is being taught in the classroom. I will set must do tasks each week on Mathletics for the children to do at home. There is however a fee for 1 years access to  Mathletics (which was part of the stationery list) . If you haven't already please pay the $30 fee at the office before the end of week 5 (02/03/12) otherwise your child will no longer have access to use the programme. 


Please make sure your child is bringing their bookbag to school each day. Students aren't allowed to take reading books home without protecting them in a bookbag. If your child has lost their bookbag they can  bring a plastic/other type of bag to school to take reading books home. 


Terms 1 and 4 are sun safety terms, please ensure your child is bringing their Reremoana School hat to school each day so they can participate in outside learning.
