Room 13

Welcome back to Devon Intermediate 2018 and Room 13! I hope you all had a fantastic summer break of family filled adventures. Looking ahead we have a very busy year filled with learning activities and house competitions.

Our house for this year is:

RESOLUTION

We wear

BLUE

For the upcoming Championship Swimming sports on Friday 23rd February.

MANA: MANA remains a big focus here at Devon this year. Please spend some time going through your child’s diary to find out all about it if you are unsure. We are hoping to have lots of students achieving their bronze, silver and gold badges.

Diaries: Student diaries are essential to student organisation and learning here at Devon. Please ensure your child brings theirs every day. There is a space for parents to write notes for school.

PE gear and togs are needed this term. These items need to be named and at school daily.

Homework: Homework will be handed out on a Monday and due back completed by the following Friday. In Room 13 we stress the importance of being organised so if there is a legitimate reason for homework not to be completed I encourage students to approach me before the deadline or bring in a note if possible. There is also extra homework if requested.

 

This term for our topic we are looking at Leadership and the Commonwealth Games. We will be studying number in maths for the entire term so please keep practicing those times tables at home. For reading we are looking at the novel Refugee by Alan Gratz. Watch this space! We are also really focused on getting the students ready for High School and taking responsibility for their own learning.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone through the school office, or by emailing me at mmattock@devonint.school.nz

 

Looking forward to a fantastic term!
