Nau mai haere mai.
Kaituna has settled well with our two teachers Mrs Williams and Mrs Kenny. Our routines have been well established and there is a lovely family feeling in the class. We are also working closely with the Pelorus Community Preschool and have fortnightly visits where we either go visiting or we host. This is a great way to help the 4 year-olds experience school before their big day and sets them up for a smooth transition to school.
The learning focus this term remains Te Hoiere and Me. In Term 1 we investigated what makes our school special and learned our mihi. This term we will be visiting Te Hora the Marae and also creating art using the koru motif. This motif will then be used on our visual mihi which will be on display shortly in the classroom.
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 Vicki 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.
