Room 6

Reminder – Student Free Day Friday 18th May 🙂 due to teachers continuing training on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)

Welcome back to Term 2!

Please find below this term’s overview. There has been one change this term with Sharing. There will no longer be a weekly sharing schedule, however if students occasionally have something special they would like to bring in, they may and I’ll do my utmost to fit it into the day.

Students will continue to practise public speaking skills through sharing of their work and ideas and through class discussions.

Thanks, Kate 🙂

  • t
  • p
  • i (2 sounds: i, I)
  • n
  • a (5 sounds: a, ai, ar, or, o)       and
  • c (2 sounds: c, s)

We have also been learning recount writing in English, about families in Inquiry and social skills – as well as many more things!

Please ensure you have downloaded the Dojo app and have joined our class – please email or see me if you need a new code.
