Room 3 enjoyed the learning from Ronald McDonald as he spoke about Road Safety. What to look for. What to listen for. What to do.

23 Tawaraunui Road,
It is so up lifting to hear your tamariki talk and write about their holiday memories. To see their faces light up, screw up and laughter brings happy noise into our learning space. Which is a great way to set the tone for term four.
DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY
For literacy we will be working more on our devices becoming more familiar and technologically savvy. This may look like, writing on our classroom blogs, responding and saving our mahi in our new work folders. Oh! so what about Math?, well from the moment we open our eyes we are doing Math, what time is it, how many sandwiches am I having, and I’m going to get 100% attendance this term! So we will be focusing on problem solving and showing our working out, yes you got it! on our devices.
SO LET THE FUN BEGIN!
We have created a visual rewards board to get the competitive bug within us booming! We also have our ‘caught being goods’, yellow cards, House points, ‘Principals award’, Mrs. Nathan’s ‘Sparkle Box’, weekly acknowledgments ‘Certificates’. Actually all our day of learning needs to be exciting and rewarding so negative attitudes and behaviours have no room here, but we already know that aye Mrs. Nathan.
Our wonder wall is linked to the Rugby World Cup and Room 3’s country is Ireland. So we will be learning about ‘Celebrating Success through Diversity’. Hmmmm what does that mean? That’s what we have to FIND out. Check our classroom blog kws-room3.blogspot.co.nz and see what we’ve been up to, leave a positive encouraging comment beginning with – I like … (it’s a start aye).
That’s us! Noho ora mai
Waitangi Nathan me ngᾱ tamariki o te ruma tua toru!

Kaikohe West School
23 Tawaraunui Road,
I hope you created a lot of holiday memories over the break. It’s nice to see your tamariki again. Room 3 have a lot of work ahead of us but more importantly how to achieve these learning goals efficiently.
Every day we need to push the boundaries for Reading the focus area this term. The balance of our learning will come from experiences in Te Reo, Health and PE, Technology and The Arts. Mrs Nathan will continue to be on our backs about Book Bags and monitoring our reading with whanau, reflective writing, times tables and spelling every single morning without fail. Don’t worry she only wants the best from us and nothing less because we are the best.
Our Learning Inquiry topic is Music where we are learning about what we are performing at the end of the term. Mrs Nathan is supporting our learning by sharing what she knows, korero handed down from her father. It would be nice to hear from you whanau! Even better Mrs Nathan personally invites you as our special guests to share your knowledge with us too.
Passion Fridays is where Mrs Nathan actively places our class and learning bang smack in the community. We enjoy a morning walk down Broadway, why because we love it. Mrs Nathan says we are part of this community and this is our town! She likes us to be seen, we like the shop keepers to see us. We feel happy to wave when whanau toot to us. We like to sing in our town and just enjoy the air that we breathe. We feel safe and free with Mrs Nathan.
Check out our classroom blog kws-room3.blogspot.co.nz and see what we’ve been up to. You can talk to us on this site, yeah!
Oh one last thing I commend you on getting your child to school on time very much appreciated. We are aiming for 100% attendance.
That’s us! Noho ora mai
Waitangi Nathan me nga tamariki o te ruma tua toru!
