PB4L Focus for Week 4

Hi Team 13

Our PB4L school wide focus this week is 'Being Respectful by following adult instructions'.  We sat in a sharing circle and had some great discussions about this topic and here's what we came up with:

Great work Room 13.  Keep those great discussions flowing!


Hi All,

Just some quick reminders about library books and school hats.

I just wanted to let you know, that our library booking date this term is on Tuesdays.  Could you please remember to bring your books back on a Tuesday?  There are quite a few children, who unfortunately were not able to get library books out today as they have overdue books at home.  Ideally, it is good if they can keep a book at school for reading and take one home to read for enjoyment.  Could you please have a dig around and get these back to school as soon as you can.

Also, it is school policy that children must wear a hat during outside play or activities in the summer months.  If they do not bring a hat, then they need to play under the shade cloth area.

Many thanks

Miss Kearins

Well done Room 13, keep thinking about ways we can all practice being respectful.

Being Respectful - Week 2

On Monday we had a brainstorming session about how we can show respect for our and other people's equipment and property.  I was just so impressed with the ideas and examples the children were able to arrive at.  I sure feel like my books and property will be well looked after in Room 13!!  Here's what they came up with:

PB4L is a big focus for us all at Reremoana.  We are looking at a different focus each week and this week we are looking at showing respect by being on time.  Here are our ideas about how we can be on time.  We have already had some enthusiastic PB4L badge winners who were able demonstrate respect to others.  They were then able to trade these in for house tokens at the end of the day.  

Stay tuned for next week's focus when we will be learning about 'looking after equipment and property'.
