Welcome to the new entrant, year 1 class. My name is Mrs Bev Barbarich. The children all call me Mrs B. I share the teaching with Mrs Linda Jensen-Gaiger known as Mrs J. Mrs J teaches from morning tea on Friday to morning tea on Monday, while I teach the remainder of the week. We have 14 children in the class and a fine looking bunch we are too!!
This term our focus is on creating a "Classroom Treaty" based on the Treaty of Waitangi where we will establish routines and expectations.
All children in Endeavour participate in the "Early words programme" with teacher aides Miss Foster and Mrs Robinson.
We are very fortunate to have our own heated school pool to gain water confidence, survival skills and learn how to swim.
Fridays are our library days where we get to change our 2 books for the week.
Our theme for this term is WATER..,students will be coming home talking to you about aspects of our learning which we plan to base on ‘Oceans’/’Moana’ including Maori legends based on the mythical character Maui
