Kaituna Learning Area

Nau mai haere mai. 

As we move into the second half of the year we are seeing Kaituna grow in number. We welcomed two new students last term and have more joining us this term. The existing Kaituna students enjoy welcoming new students into the class and teaching them the classroom routines. Mrs Williams and I have swapped our timetables around this term which means I am in the classroom from the beginning of the day and Mrs Williams comes in for the last hour. We are all enjoying this change. Fortnightly visits continue with Pelorus Community Preschool and this is certainly helping with transitioning to school for the 4 (almost 5) year olds.Tor Freeman kids on trumpet 530x342

The learning focus this term is Garage Band Music. We will be exploring making musical instruments using recycled materials. These instruments will then be used in a musical performance. Keep an eye on the Boomerang Books for requests of materials when we begin to make these instruments.

I am always more than happy to meet with any parent to talk about how wonderful your children are or to work together to solve any potential problems. Should you wish to meet with either Mrs Williams or myself, please either do so at the end of the day or arrange a time to meet, perhaps easiest via email.  

If you would like to come in and help out in the classroom at any time please let me know - this help could be with reading or art but there may also be other skills you have that we may be able to tap into from time to time.
