Term 2 Week 5

What a busy week we had last week! 

Inquiry

Our enquiry choice for last week was to investigate how popping corn becomes popcorn.  On friday we documented the process in our enquiry books.  Ask your child what causes popcorn to pop.

Maths 

We have just completed an enlightening study of concepts of height and length lead by the children's ideas. We now know how many units tall we are from our homemade tape measures which we also used to measure a few other items in the classroom.
This week we will be  finding ways to compare and measure area as we continue to extend our understanding of time through our daily calendar maths and the timing of our school routines and activities.



Reading

We are still working our way through the Anton program in order to recognise letters, how they are formed and the sounds they represent in words.  Everyone is bringing home the letter they have been learning and practicing to write, to revise.

Library day is Thursday.  Please ensure last weeks book is in their book bag on Thursday in order to get another book out.

Over the next month we will be learning about the stories and the ways matariki (the Maori new year) is celebrated.

Photolife photos on Monday morning.  L2 is first on Monday morning.

We have had mixup's with clothing and shoes.  Please check the labels.  L2 have been asked to store shoes and jumpers in the cupboard of our cloak room. The Office also has lost property outside their door.

Whole school assembly this Friday 2.20pm.

This Wednesday 31 May 6.30 - 7pm in the school staff room there will be a parent evening with a presentation from NetSafe. The purpose of this evening is to help parents with aspects of keeping students safe on line.
