Week Six!

My oh my how time is flying this term! Week 6 is already done and dusted and what a great week it was. Room 15 was super lucky to have the senior students of Room 7 show us the ins and outs of orienteering. We had great fun using clues (and the seniors help) to navigate our way around our school grounds while being timed! Below are just a few photos that we got as everyone was too quick for a photo!

The week that was week 5....

What a busy week Room 15 has had, even busier than usual! We spent a lot of time preparing for our goal setting conferences and also our Tui team celebration. Thank you to all those wonderful parents that took time out of their day to come in and see me to discuss the goals of the children. It was great to catch up with you all! I have uploaded our multimedia presentation of awesomeness that we shared at celebration on Friday for those of you that couldn't make it. Enjoy!

Tui Team Homefun Club

Tui Team Homework Club

To help our students become more responsible about completing homework tasks and remembering to bring homework to school on the due date, the Tui Team has implemented a Friday“Homework Club” during break times, for students who have not completed or who have forgotten their homework to get it done. Students are still able to eat and are not expected to spend the whole break time in the club. We have already found after two weeks that children are getting better at self management, and understanding the importance of completing tasks set for home.
 We know there are weeks when things come up and students are not able to get their homework done for one reason or another. Please either email your child’s classroom teacher or pop a note in their homework book explaining this, and that you would appreciate them being excused from homework club.

Tips to help your children become more independent about homework:
- Provide a break between getting home from school and starting their homework
- Set aside a certain time and place specifically for homework
- Let your child’s teacher know early on in the week if there are parts of the homework that are not clear for your child

- Your child will ALWAYS have homework, unless you receive notification otherwise.
