Room 1 - New Entrants
Mrs Janetta Mayerhofler & Mrs Lisa Boyd-Crofskey


Kia ora, Talofa, Kia orana, Malo lelei, Hello!

Welcome to Room 1s homepage. Thank you for entrusting your precious children with us. We feel privileged and honoured to begin this journey of education with your child and we hope to instill in them a love for learning!

We are a fabulous New Entrant/Year 1 class at the coolest school in the world. Room 1 has 2 teachers - Mrs Boyd-Crofskey and Mrs Mayerhofler.

This page will be used to keep you up to date with what is happening in our class and school. We will also use this page to display some of our work, photos or video clips of what we have been up to in our awesome class.

This term we are focussing on Farm Animals. For the second half of the term we will be looking at Technology on the farm. We will be going on a class trip to Ambury Farm so please sign and return your child's permission slip asap. Please let us know if you are able to share your expertise in any of these areas.

We have daily reading and alphabet and word cards as the children's homework in their book bags which need to be returned daily. We also have a weekly homework exercise book (once you have bought stationery) which is usually issued on a Monday or Tuesday and collected up for marking on a Friday. If you have not seen your child's homework book for a while, then please ask your child where their homework book is...

Your child's weekly homework consists of:

1) Daily Reading  

2) Aphabet/Word card

3) Counting and identifying numbers up to 20

4) Identifying shapes and colours

4) Weekly Homework sheet (Tues-Thurs)
