Kia ora Koutou

Wow! what an amazing three weeks we have already had for 2019! This week, our class was officially named Te Ono Pai.  Translated this means  successful six.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday provide some refreshing swimming time, this has been very nice with the hot weather we have had.

Library is on Mondays and one of our goals has been to use the I PICK tool to help us choose books that are a good fit.  Ask your child at home if they can explain I PICK to you.

Next week we will start Chapter Chat.  We are reading the book  ‘Wonder’,  each week a set of activities are posted that the kids can work through.  They are not expected to complete them all, some they may wish to do at home and bring in during the week.

As you are aware our big focus for the year is hautūtanga.  In the last three weeks the kids have been given many different opportunities to show, work on and learn more about this important value.  We are very proud of all of Te Ono Pai for their positive attitudes and consideration of others during these activities.  They are a fantastic group of kids and we are excited about the year ahead.

Thank you for your ongoing support at home.  Have a lovely weekend.

Bianca and Mel
