Room 10


All students will have homework.  It is generally given out weekly, from Monday to the following Monday.  This term the homework will be assigned on Google Classroom and hardcopy sheets.  Your child can choose which format suits them best.  The homework is given on Mondays and due in the following Monday. 

Room 10 is a Year 7 class and part of the Endeavour Team.

Our house colour is RED.

Students in Endeavour will need to wear red clothing and hats for a number of inter-house sport competitions this year.

Term Three, 2020

Term Three promises to be another busy (and hopefully full/uninterrupted!) term in Room 10 at Devon Intermediate.  There will be numerous opportunities for your child to be involved in – sports exchanges, production, cross country, speech contests and many more.  Keep an eye out in the school newsletter and the weekly home communication letters for more information.  It will be important for your child to pay attention to daily notices and make sure they attend meetings for activities they are interested in. 

Our integrated learning topics this term are Sleep (Maths), Hauora and Celebrations.

Language features – what are they, why are they used, where are they used and how can we use them to improve our writing?

Persuasive Writing

Statistics, Probability and Algebra

Hauora – Health & Well Being

All students have a school email address and are able to use it to access google classroom.  They also have Studyladder and Prodigy accounts they can use independently.  

A highlight for many of the students this term will be the school production of The Lion King.  More information will come home nearer to the time about it.
