Passion week 2017

Term 2, week 4

Kia Ora whanau/ caregivers

I hope you have had a great week, Passion week is coming up soon. Please ask your child what they are excited about learning!!

I handed out a term 2 newsletter this week. Here is a copy  just in case you missed out on it.

Welcome back to Term 2!!!!  Room 8’s newsletter for this term is about reinforcing what we are learning about, up and coming events and how you can support your child to be the best that they can be.

Our Inquiry focus this term is  looking at systems.  We have an overarching theme of whānaungatanga and looking to include  recycling where we can. We are aiming to have less litter in your child’s lunch boxes. Please ask them how we can achieve this and how we can have less rubbish at school and in the community.

Junior school PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. This term we are looking at increasing child’s skills in dodging, catching and invasion games.

Room 8’s class blog is http -  The children love having their mahi commented on please come and visit our blog so you can capture your child’s learning in action.

My class has a planning site that you can also visit,

I would really appreciate your continued support to listen to your child read each night, please record their learning in the reading log. Some tamariki already have read over 25 night in a row!!  Please remember they need to bring their book bag to school each day.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me via phone, email or a school visit.

Your continued whānau support is everything to your own child!

Have a great week, oops by the way our new children from Mrs O'brien have settled in really nicely. Congrats to Skylah and Ziggy for earning a classs certificate on Friday. The stem challenge on Friday also was heaps of fun. We made very interesting and creative marshmellow bridges and towers!! Everyone worked together and helped by being supportive by using whanauntanga.
