Christmas Excitement and Peanut fun!!!

Term 4, Week 7

Dear whanau/Caregivers.
If any of you missed out about the up and coming class trips in week 8, here it is!!

Dear Whanau/Parents/Grandparents

As the end of the year is approaching  rapidly, room 8 is planning a class trip next week. Throughout next week week 8. From Monday 28th to Friday 2nd December we will be planning on taking a walk  down to santa’s grotto, in the old Mitre 10 building. This walk will be dependent on the weather.

We will also be having a walk up monument hill to look at the amazing monument and take in some of the beautiful sights of Kaikohe.

If you do not require your child to be included in these excursions please let me know ASAP.

You are more than welcome to join us if you are able to.

Please ring or email if you have any further questions.

The Kaikohe christmas parade was amazing today, thank you to Matua Gus and whaea Te ruru for organising the float.

Have a great weekend, see you all next week.😃😃😃😃

TBall skills and certificate excitement!!

Term 4, week 6

Kia Ora whanau

Araho mai, last week I forget to put up a post, I have been very busy completing assessment on your tamariki and starting to write reports. The great news is only 1 report to go!!!  I am so proud of all the tremendous work all the tamariki have achieved over the year. Everyone has been working very hard to achieve these pleasing results.

This week we had Feron Rogers from the Bay Marlins come and spend some time with our Kaikohe west TBall children.  He has been working on developing there throwing and catching skills.

Ariana was really lucky to get her name pulled out of the white card box!!!  Room 8 were really excited for her

Peanut my little Papillion is coming to school for the day next Wednesday. All of Room 8 are so excited and can't wait!!  I am excited also, I hope Peanut is.  I will post photos of Peanuts visit next week.

Our waiata performance is next Friday the 25th November. I hope to see lots of whanau there supporting there tamariki.  We are singing Purei Nei. Everyone is learning the new waiata really easily.

Thank you also to Feron for coming in and spending time with our beautiful children. Everyone did benefit from his one on one coaching!!

Have a great week

Halloween fun!!

Term 4, Week 4

Kia Ora Whanau/Parents

We have had another fantastic week. I was away sick on Tuesday and Mrs Woods was relieving for me in room 8. She commented how awesome and well behaved the tamariki were. Everyone was very focused and finished their learning on time.  Thank you Room 8 you guys are the best and most of all you showed absolute respect to a special teacher, Mrs Woods.

We start swimming on Tuesday and Thursdays  from week 6.  Please remind your child to all bring their togs. It is a requirement for all children to be part of our  swimming sessions. 

This week we had the pleasure of Te Mana Haa joining our class.  She has fitted in perfectly!!!  Monique this week turned 6, room 8 made her a delicious chocolate cake.

Here is Monique and her birthday cake- Nom, Nom
