Whanau time - Happy mothers day

Happy mothers day 

A massive shout out to all of the mothers, nanas, aunties and any other special lady out there.
I hope you enjoy your day and that the tamariki spoil you.

* Relax
* Reflect
* Enjoy

You deserve it !

Kia Ora Whanau,

Just a reminder that we have Whanau Conferences this afternoon (Weds) and Thursday afternoon.

Weds - School finishes at 1.30 and Whanau conferences starts at 1.45pm sharp.

Thursday - School finishes normal time.

This is a student led conference which means your child will be doing most of the talking.

This is not a time to talk about behaviour or Home Learning. It is a time to reflect on where your child is at and what their goals are for this term - Reading, writing and math. 

The tamariki are excited for the Whanau Conferences and so AM I.

Nga Mihi,

Miss Adams

Term 2

Term 2

Kia Ora everybody!

Welcome back to School. I hope you all had a fun, relaxing and enjoyable holiday & that you are all ready and energised for TERM 2! We have an exciting Term ahead of us with heaps of learning!

This terms topic is all about 'Nga Maori Atua' which links to Earth, Water, Fire & Wind! 
This week (Week 1) I will be collecting student voice & will be asking them what they want to learn about... Please take the time to talk to your tamariki about their learning journey. 

Home learning:
Just a reminder to all whanau that Ruma Rua is given Home Learning each week, however this term I will be giving the tamariki the option to take it or leave it because in Term 1 there was a high number of tamariki taking it but not bringing it back. If you would like your child to receive Home Learning each week please send a note with your child or get them to tell me that they would like it every week. I am hopeful that this will help cut down the amount of paper being wasted.

Open class:
Please feel free to come in and be apart of your child's learning. We have an open-class policy which means you can come in anytime you would like - You would just need to sign in at the front office. 

If you have some special knowledge that you would like to share with our class please come in and share it! 

So don't be shy, come on in !     

If you would like to contact me for anymore information about this Term please contact me via the school number on: (09) 266 8918.

Nga Mihi,
Miss Adams
