Room 9 - Year 2
Mrs Caitlin Haynes


Kia ora,

Welcome to Room 9s homepage. We are a fabulous New Entrant/Year 1 class at the coolest school in the world. Room 9 has 2 teachers this year - 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 the Olympics and Plants. We will be going on a trip in Week 4 to to the Otara Recreation centre to participate in our own mini Olympics and we will be going to the Botanic gardens in Week 8. 

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 which is usually issued on a Tuesday and collected up for marking on a Friday. Children who do their weekly homework receive a sticker and ten stickers earns your child a prize. 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) Weekly Homework sheet (Tues-Thurs)
