Capitalizing Units of Time


I am a teacher and we have just completed reports and have undertaken a gruelling proofreading session. A lot of people pulled me up on not capitalizing 'term one' or 'semester one'. Here is the context:


'In term one, Ruby completed an oral presentation that was well prepared and engaging.'


Surely 'term one' and 'term two' are units of time and are definitely not proper nouns.


One fellow colleague even said that 'oral presentation' should have been capitalized. I think this is ridiculous...


Any thoughts?
