Writing with Mrs Smith

Term 1, week 9

Welcome to week 9, only 2 more weeks to go until we finish term one. Wow, the term has flown so so quickly. It has been fantastic having Mrs Smith team teaching in room8!!  The tamariki are loving having another dynamic  teacher to learn from.

This week Matua Gus and Mrs Smith read them a story book The spooky bats. They drew the pictures and captions and then sequenced the story in the correct order.

I am so proud of room 8's fantastic mahi. They all worked super hard to re create the book The spooky bats.

Room 8 was also involved with #getNZwriting. We exchanged our learning with Mellonsbay school in Howick, Auckland. We will be receiving our postcards and poster in the next week.
Have a fantastic week. Please don't forget we have parent teacher interviews Tuesday 11th April  from 3.30-5.30.

Welcome Mrs Smith to Room 8

Term 1, week 7

This week we have really exciting news. Mrs Smith our wonderful DP is going to be teaching in room 8  every day from 11.00-1.00pm. She will be teaching writing and maths.

During these two hours I will be continuing my reading recovery through the year!!!  I am so excited to be team teaching with Mrs Smith, she is a talented teacher and we will all benefit from her knowledge, skills, strategies and experience she has to offer.

Keep watching this space so we can post what is happening in room 8!!

This week also all of the junior school will be going for a walk up Monument hill  to further connect with the identity of Kaikohe and ourselves!!

Please also don't forgot please return the permission slip to allow your child to go on the trip to Auckland in August this year.

Have a great week😄😄
