Welcome to Room 15 for 2020
Term 1 2020
Two weeks into the school year and Room 15, comprising 14 boys and 13 girls have merged into their new school environment well.
Besides finding their way around the school they have also been learning new routines and timetables with the highlight being to attend technology classes during the week just gone.
The students have come to realise that there are many varied opportunities to experience and participate in while attending Devon Intermediate and will take-up the first challenge by being involved in the school swimming sports over the next few weeks.
Positive behaviour is also expected and the indicating of each day being either red or green is becoming a routine. All students in Room 15 have demonstrated MANA values and are on their way to achieving their bronze or silver badges.
For the first half of the term we are covering the following topics:
Maths – Number including decimals and fractions
Language – To follow a structure in their writing, to recount an event.
Reading – To identify the main idea from a narrative and then list the supporting points.
Interest Topic – To know who you are as an individual; your mihi and pepeha.
To retell a Taranaki myth/legend.
Over the course of the year I look forward to assisting all Room 15 students to exceed their learning, cultural and sporting goals while most importantly enjoying the journey.
