    Hi, my name is Mrs Tracey Galloway
    and I’ll be your child’s teacher this year.
    I’m looking forward to an exciting and ‘full of learning’ time in Room 2.
    I want you to know how pleased I am to have your child in my class.
    I feel that good communication between home and school is of utmost importance. With your help we will be partners in your child’s education.
    My teaching begins with making your child
    feel at home in my classroom and helping them
    to develop their independence.I have gone to great lengths
    to make our room acomfortable, welcoming place that will
    facilitate asafe and secure feeling to ensure academic success.
    My priority is that your child is happy and settled
    into school and learning.

    Reading Homework
    Everyday your child will bring home a reading book to share with you, please make sure that you record this in their reading log. On the days that they don’t see me they will choose a book from their book basket that they have already had. Sometimes they may have the same book more than once.
    Even though they may know all the words, or most of them, the second day we will have gone into more depth about the story and may have done a written activity about it. When children re-read known texts, they develop fluency and confidence with the print. This also helps to promote ‘reading for understanding’. Ask your child questions about the text, as it is important that they comprehend what they are reading. On Fridays they will bring home their poetry book, which has the poem we have been reading in class together, it would be great if you could read these together at home.
    Swimming
    The children are fortunate to have lessons with the qualified instructors at Freyberg. Swimming lessons will be starting in Term 2.
    Numeracy/Maths
    As required, they will bring home their ‘Maths Communication’ notebook.

    Spelling Homework
    In term two or when they are ready, the children will bring home their spelling notebooks. Each week they will have a list of 5 words to learn
    and on Friday they will be tested. Ideas will be given in that book about
    how to help them learn these words. If your child is reading at an early
    level they won’t be given spelling lists to learn until later on, as it is
    more important to master ‘reading’ high frequency words.
    Headphones
    We use headphones in class for a variety of things. If your child would like to bring some to school for them to use, please feel free. They will need to be labeled and your child’s responsibility. They will only be used by your child and stored in our class. Headphones that cover the ears are the best.
    Toys at School
    Children love to bring their ‘toys and treasures’ to school to show their friends. Unfortunately these things can become lost or broken resulting in disaster. We have a ‘no toys’ rule in Room 2 to prevent this from happening. However, each Friday they can share something during ‘Circle Time’
    and then it can be left in my cupboard until home time.

    We are very fortunate to have Mrs Helen Hardy working with us in Room 2. She is a valuable resource to me as a teacher and she is also a great help and support to your child in the classroom.

    Mobile Library Bus
    The bus comes to Kairanga every 3 weeks, books issued from the bus will
    stay at school and will be returned to the bus when it returns to Kairanga.
    I will send home the form for a library card, if you already have a card
    could you please send it along to school so that I can photocopy it,
    for your child to use on the bus.

    Theme
    Our theme for Weeks 1-3 is ‘Our NZ Flag’.
    Week 2 the ‘Life Education Trust’ will be visiting with Harold the Giraffe. We will be focusing on Healthy Eating.
    Weeks 4-11 is a Science based topic around the idea of ‘At the Pool’ developing science skills in the capability of ‘Gathering and Interpreting Data’.
    Meeting with Me
    I encourage you to contact me at anytime with any questions you might have, as I will definitely contact you if I need to.

    You can email me anytime at ... tracey@kairanga.school.nz.
    Parent Help
    There may be times in the term when I will need a few more pairs of hands. It would be great to have a few parents that I could ring to come in
    for the odd lesson to help out, such as an art activity.
    Let me know if that might be you.

    If you have a couch in good condition that you no longer need or use, please feel free to let me know. Our classroom couch has seen better days.
