Welcome back to Term 4!

If the first two weeks are anything to go by-the term will be over too fast!! We have a lot packed into the last 6 weeks of the year. It is going to be a fun, enjoyable time till (dare we say it already!) Christmas!

This term the chidlren are going to be learning about fractions, proportions and ratios in maths, guided reading and writing will continue with the introduction of a writers workshop where (the children have hopefully talked to you about) the rotations of spelling, handwriting and gramma/punctuation will be a focus this term. We have noticed a huge improvment in the children’s confidence and we feel this is because of the many opportunities in our room that the children have to experiment with drama-we will be continuing that this term (due to popular demmand by the children).

Our MOTE (mantle of the expert) this term centers on some proffesionals that may be required to assist with a current ecological distaster and respond to a mystery  that was found-please feel free to quiz your children on their company role and how they are involved.

 Everyone in Room One is getting very excited about camp next week-we are all organised and hoping the weather will deliver for a surpurb, action packed 3 days!

Thank-you for your continued support,

Miss J & G.

    What a great start to the term. Every one enjoying our new mystery mote. My fav part so far was in oral language when we did the seek ads. And I am also enjoying the new rounders game, that was really fun. I was excited to see all my friends and my awesome teachers. Oh, and welcome to Miss Hamer our new student teacher, I cant wait to go to camp with you, you are great!!!!!!!!! Speaking of camp I cant wait! Its usually the three days of the year to remember. Any way thank you for a awesome start to the term every body.

Love writing work shop learning about grammar, spelling and handwriting. Oral language is soooooooooooo cool seeing everyone in the class improve in their drama and confidence.
