    Terms 3 & 4 2017
    Dear Room 9
    During Terms 3 & 4 you will make one “Famous Invention” or “Famous Inventor” presentation (you choose which). This will require research, organization, time management and neat presentation. You will make an oral presentation about an invention or inventor as well as a visual display. Your visual presentation should be a google presentation that you have embedded on your blog. Be creative with your presentation and try to ‘grab’ your audience.
    Ideas to help you:
    Introduce your invention/inventor
    Explain the invention, what it is, when it was invented etc
    Discuss the benefits (good points) of this invention
    Are there any bad points?
    What impact has this invention had on the world?
    Share your opinion
    If you are doing an inventor tell us about that person and what they invented.
    You will also make one “NZ Native Animal” presentation. This will involve the same format as the “Famous Invention/Inventor”.
    Ideas to help you:
    Introduce your animal
    Talk about their behaviour, diet, habitat, life cycle, predators
    Are they endangered? Why?
    Share some interesting facts
    Tell us your opinion about this animal
    I look forward to your presentations

    the expectations.
    Welcome to Room 9
    31 January 2018
    Dear Parents/Caregivers
    Welcome to the new school year and to Room 9. I am looking forward to working with your child and trust that the year will prove to be a positive and rewarding experience for us all. My door is always open, if you or your child have any concerns throughout the year please don’t hesitate to either ring/email me or come in for a chat. My email address is: karen@brightwater.school.nz
    It is my aim to provide a safe, happy and supportive atmosphere, with all students having the right to learn, undisturbed by the behaviour of others. They will be encouraged to be self motivated learners who can work productively in both co-operative and independent situations. As senior students they are expected to arrive each day organised and prepared for learning.
    Throughout the year there will be many opportunities for your child to be involved in extra activities and possibly take on leadership roles within our school community. A lot can be gained from this and I recommend that you encourage them to participate and get involved.
    I will be running a “Financial Literacy” programme alongside the regular classroom programme. Children will have jobs throughout the year that they will get paid for (only on paper). They will deduct tax as well as any fines they may have incurred. Bonuses will be given out as incentives and rewards for positive behaviour. At the end of each term there will be an auction and the children can use the money they have accumulated to bid on items.
    More information about what’s happening in Room 9 throughout the year will be posted on our class wiki. Please join us on our learning journey at brightwater-room9.wikispaces.com
    A separate notice is included outlining homework expectations.
    I appreciate your support and look forward to meeting you.
    Kind regards,
    Karen Edwards
