Kate Brown Room 12

Parents and students, welcome to Room 12! We are a Year 8 class and part of the Kiwi Syndicate. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and having a wonderful 2016.  I look forward to meeting you at the teacher/parent information evenings and at school events. We have a busy and exciting year planned. Students, this year you will consolidate the skills you have already learnt and build on them as independent learners!

Homework will be given out and collected in every Monday. Students will be able to access homework on our Google Classroom website as well as in their homework diary. We will be setting positive homework habits by using our diary to organise students extracurricular commitments and weekly homework. Parents can support positive homework habits by signing children’s homework diary each week and using the diary to communicate between home and school.

Kia Ora and welcome to Room 16, Tui Syndicate. This is the beginning of an exciting journey for the students as they progress through their time at Birkdale Intermediate. I am really looking forward to building a great learning relationship with the students and their whanau and creating a positive learning environment within our classroom. I encourage students to take on the responsibility for their learning and give things a go. There is much on offer at Birkdale, so I would encourage students to challenge themselves and try things they haven’t yet experienced. Homework is given to reinforce our learning, so support your child by signing off their homework diary at the end of each week. I encourage an open relationship within our classroom and home, so email me if you have any queries or visit the room outside of class hours.

Welcome to Room 17!

I am very happy to be continuing my journey here at Birkdale Intermediate as a part of Tui Team. This year I will be teaching Year 7 in Room 17, and I look forward to getting to know all the amazing new students who be joining us at this fantastic school.

I strongly encourage parents to take an interest in their students’ learning. I ask that parents monitor assigned homework tasks (approximately 4 hours per week), assist with spelling, and sign the students’ homework every week. I would also like to welcome all parents to contact me for a chat, visit the room (outside of class hours), and see what their students get up to in room 17.
