Week 8 2015

It is hard to believe that there are only 2 weeks left until the end of Term 1!!
Well done to those that went on the rail trail-what an awesome experience you have had.

In the next 8 days(these are short weeks) we will be completing Power Point presentations for science on Life Cycles, presenting plays in various forms based on Maori Legends, completing our Reading Contract on NZ  authors, publishing a good copy of the limericks we have just written, finishing art work using pastels, along with our spelling, maths and literacy programmes.

Year 7's, you will be joining Room 4 in the mornings from 10.15am for numeracy and literacy programmes with Ms L and Mrs Rose for the next two weeks. Also you will be continuing to work on your Science Presentations with Yr7 and Yr8's. Remember, completion date is 1st April.

Tomorrow is Tuesday, so it is technology and languages for Yr7's.
Here's to a busy and productive last two weeks!!!!

Hello Everyone.

It was lovely to welcome back our Yr 6 campers on Friday-they were buzzing when they came into class to tell us a little about their experiences.We look forward to hearing more over the next week-and seeing a lot more photos-check out those already there!

We have a full class for two days and then some of our Year 7's join the rest of the Yr 7 & 8's on the Rail Trail.(along with lots of parents, and Ms L and Mr White) Fingers crossed for good weather!

This week we have parent/child/teacher meetings on Monday and Tuesday. Please remember to bring back your goal setting sheets of paper that you took home. I am looking forward to catching up with you all to learn more about you. If you haven't set a time yet please ring the office or book on line-Thanks1

Week 6 Term One 2015

Hi Everyone!
What a big week last week with PAT'S. We will look at results and set goals for the year in the next week, or so.

Year 6's are off to camp-have a great 4 days with Mr White and the 4 parents also going.

Year 7's will be joining the year 7 and 8's in Room 4 to study life cycles and science, in the afternoons, this week. 

Year 5's will be starting life cycles in class and then working on individual projects next week.

Our Reading contract is progressing well as children do this at their own speed-should be finished in a week or so.

Times tables are part of homework from this week on.

Remember to do your spelling every night.

Week 5 Term 1 2015

Another great week has gone by! It is hard to believe we are starting Week 5.

This week we are getting into our N.Z.Author Reading contract-this will continue for 2-3 weeks, as Yr6's will be on camp soon and some Yr 7's will be on the rail trail the following week. Reading at home will be based on N.Z. authors and the contract activities will be done at school.

Yr 6's will be spending several afternoons on pre camp activities with Mr White-exciting!

This week is also very busy with P.A.T.tests. 

Remember C.O. Swimming for those involved.
