What have we been up to in Room 7

As part of our See me, know me, grow me topic we looked at Maori symbols. We used these to think about what symbols represented us and decorated korowai cloaks that are on our classroom walls. We also used these symbols to design patterns onto soap and soap is a cool way to have a go at carving because if you make a mistake you can scrape it off and start again.

What have we been up to in CC2

Hello Tainui family we are learning to play the ukulele we have been really enjoying our time learning a new instrument. We are hoping to be able to play a full song by the end of the term. 

Abigail and Cyahn 

A massive ngā mihi to Thelma and her team from MC Gym for coming into school and running a WOD in honor of Gumboot Day the children thoroughly enjoyed the work out and free sausages.

You guys rock & we appreciate you!

ATTENTION!!! Please check your tamariki for headlice it is present in school and making its way around. If you need help with treatments please contact the office and we can see what we can do 🙂 Also please do not be offended if we ask you to pick your child up and treat them before they return to back to school.

Lets get rid of these little critters!

Ngā Pēpī Manu-Transition to School

Kia ora, Kia Orana Talofa lava & greetings whānau,

Our Ngā Pēpī Manu programme supports your tamariki during their transition to primary school life. Every child adapts differently when finding a sense of belonging in new environments, all who are involved should make this a positive experience. We will work together to create a plan and timetable that will suit the needs of the child and family.

Our programme will run Monday to Thursday from 9am-1pm. The number of visits we recommend before starting school is six weeks. In the first three weeks visits will be two times a week and the last three weeks, visits will be three times a week. If there is a need for more visits to support the transition, that can be arranged. We look forward to meeting with you and working together to grow competent and confident children for our future.

Kia manuia
