Clever Room 8 Tamariki!!

Term 3, Week 5

Kia Ora Whanau,

Room 8 have had a lot of Assessment tasks to complete this week. I have tested the children for Running Records, Burt Reading Test and Peters spelling Test.

My whole class was amazing they allowed  everyone mainly peace and quiet when it was their turn to complete their testing with me.

Well done to everyone who moved up reading groups!!!

Here are some photos of special children who received  class certificates this week

Harley looking happy with his certificate

Vaughan received a certificate for Amazing Mat Manners. Alicia received a certificate for  Improved story writing and for moving up 3 Reading levels.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Next week we have special  ERO visitors to our school, if we see them say Hi.
