Kia Ora and welcome back to all of the Year 8 students and their families. The big focus in Room 14 and across the Year 8 team for 2018 is organisation and preparation for High School. We have lots of exciting opportunities and there will be many challenges along the way. Bring it on!
We wear YELLOW for Swimming Sports and other school events over the year.
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.
Hats/ PE gear and togs: Should be brought in for 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 Monday. In Room 14 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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
