 TERM FOUR

RURU’S TERM 4 NEWSLETTER


16/10/17


Dear Parents,

Welcome back to Term 4. I hope you have all had a refreshing break and are ready to get back into it. We have another busy term ahead of us and I can’t wait to get started. It’s a short term of only 9 weeks so it is going to go by very fast.


 

As there is so much on in a short amount of time I have included a calendar of what we know is happening this term. Of course, there are no guarantees that this won’t change.
 
Flower show is on Wednesday this year as Ag day is on Thursday of week 1.
 

 

Our first-year students, Kirstin Buchanan and Katherine Williams, will be with us full time for the first 3 weeks of term. They will be a great addition to our classroom programme.

 This term we will be focussing on geometry, persuasive writing, memoirs, athletics, Tee ball and comprehension strategies to name a few.

 

This is a very big term for the Year 6’s as we will be preparing for our end of year activities. The Year 6 Fair is on a Tuesday this year and hopefully the children have already started thinking about what they would like to do for it. The Fair and the sleepover are two of the biggest highlights of their year.



 

I’m keeping homework simple this term- the main focus is on children knowing their times tables and there will be some literacy work. I would also like the children to keep up with doing Mathletics regularly. I know some families are very busy with extra curricula activities after school and I am happy for parents to decide how much homework their child completes. Please see me if you would like your child to do extra homework above this.

The Berkley Orientation Day is on 15th November, 9.15am-10.30am.  Parents are responsible for taking their own children to this.



Thanks so much for all your support so far this year and I know this will be another awesome term.


Regards


June Malcolm
