Room One is a busy little classroom with 20 students and is continuing to grow. Below are a few important things you need to know about being in Room 1.
It is extremely important when children first start school they read every night. Please ensure you spend 15-20 minutes reading each night and discussing the story they read. Your child will have a reading diary which will come home each night. This is a great communication device as I read it each day. Please feel free to write any notes you may have as well as making a comment about your child’s reading.
Each Friday your child will bring home a clear file with our weekly poem. This counts as a nights reading. Every night counts as we are trying to reach our reading milestones.
This term our physical education day is Tuesdays. Room 1 students need to wear their full P.E uniform with sneakers on Tuesdays. Students must wear black PE shorts, RVS P.E shirt and sneakers.
Please talk to the office about stationery as we already have packs made up and ready to go for each class.
Each term we encourage our students to commit a passage of scripture to memory and recite it to their teacher. These will be placed on Room One’s Blog page. You can search for scripture under 'Categories' (at right).
My e-mail is Miss.Galloway@rvs.school.nz. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or messages.
Our Classroom Values
Each term we have a key scripture verse that is compulsory for the students to learn and when they know it they are to come and say it to their teacher.
This terms scripture verse is John 3:16
Please help your child learn this at home and when they are ready they can come and tell me the verse before school.
