Treaty in Room 1

On our first day of school Room 1 had a discussion around what a treaty was and what it would look like in a classroom. Here is what Room one agreed to and signed ready for a successful year of learning. 

Welcome to Room 1 2015

Welcome back to a new year of learning. I hope you have all had an enjoyable break. This year in Room 1 we are a class of year 5 and year 6 students. I am currently on my second year of teaching. Last year I was in Room 2 teaching year 5 and year 6 students. I am from Gisborne originally then moved to   Hamilton to attend Waikato University to become a teacher. 
This year in Room 1 I will be having one release day every 2 weeks to complete planning and attend professional development courses. This is a requirement for any second year teachers. Miss Anna Beattie will be in Room 1 on the days that I am not in the classroom.
I am looking forward to working with Miss Beattie as I know she has a lot of exciting ideas and work planned for Room 1 students in 2015.
I am looking forward to 2015 and the exciting learning adventure we will have together.
Please feel free to come in and see me at anything throughout the year. I am also available through email at any time.
Yours truly, Miss Anna Walli…
