Week 1 2014
Welcome to Rocking room 16 blog spot....this is where you can find out about what is happening in our class. It gives access to notices and upcoming events as well as having stories, songs and activities for your child at home.
Later in the year the children will post their own news and stories.
We welcome feedback and the children love to see who has been on the site and left comments.
Instead of " I can't remember " response to your questions about what we've been up to you can keep well informed here and share the site with friends and family who may live a long way away!
You are most welcome to come and join us at the park. We would prefer no pre-schoolers please for safety reasons.There will be a permission form to return in your child's bag on MONDAY!
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to utilise the Waikanae
swimming pool during Term 1. Swimming this year for Year 1
students will take place daily for 2 weeks only. Your child will
be swimming on weeks 6 and 7 ; the dates are 10.3- to14.3 and 17.3- 21.3. The class will walk to the pool at 1.45pm and return by 3pm.
Could your child please bring their named togs and towel in a
separate plastic bag, and can you please assist by having your
child in clothing and footwear that is easily taken off and put
on again. We would advise bringing sunscreen to school for
protection as well.
Swimming is a compulsory part of the school P.E. programme,
and therefore we look forward to all children taking part. Our
aim in teaching aquatics at junior level is to build children’s
personal confidence in water through knowledge of safe
practices and the development of appropriate skills. Please send
along a note if your child is not swimming.
If you would like to come and help supervise the children not
swimming, help the swimmers get dressed etc, you are most
