Friday 25th (K2P, K3W and K3A) 

Parents and students, please remember ...

  • to be at school on time as we need to leave straight away
  • to wear covered shoes
  • have a packed lunch and a water bottle 
  • bring a raincoat and jumper 
  • bring your lovely manners to school 

Please pay if you haven't already via the online shop, direct internet transfer, cash or at the office. 

Thanks to all those lovely parents who volunteered to help. We were overwhelmed with the support we were given however we could only take a limited number. Please don't let this stop you in the future.

Maths in K3

Maths Week

This week we have been focusing on fractions, shape identification and place value. K3 have been working really hard to divide pizzas', create monsters out of different shapes and working collaborative to solve maths equations.

We have had such a successful week learning about halves, quarters and thirds, as well as looking at shapes and the objects you can make from the shapes.

K3W's Volcanic Explosions

K3W made a volcano last week and discussed what they could see and what was happening when we put each of the ingredients into the cone.

K3W described the volcano and the lava we made, playing with adjectives and building on from what their peers had said. They needed to explain why they used that particular adjective to develop their vocabulary comprehension then write about what happened...

The Manurewa Marae visit Reremoana

The Kiwi team has been learning about Matariki, the legends, stars that make up the Seven Sisters and harvesting. We were lucky enough to have a visit from the Manurewa Marae who taught us how to use poi, flax weaving and a waiata. Everyone looked like they had such a great time! Here are a few photos of our experiences and what we learnt.
