Term 3 Week 10
Personally I found it nice to get back into some of our usual routines.
The afternoons this week were fun; on Monday we practiced tutira mai with some wooden ti rakau, Tuesday L2 had music with miss Truebridge, Wednesday afternoon we practiced our basket ball skills, Thursday was library day and Friday a whole class bingo, except those at a passion Friday option. Friday was also a good day for finishing off work and revising what it is we are counting when measuring time. On Tuesday we got to see and learn about our leaf cutter bees.
This week is the Cultural Festival.
L2 is not performing live for the show. We have made up a short movie about kiwi kids with our VLC. You will not need to come to the show as I will post the movie on the blog. However if your child is participating in a Peaches and Pickles passion Friday activity they will have been given a permission slip to confirm that they are available and can perform. It is OK to perform in the show during the day and not the evening. Tickets are on sale 8.30am Monday in the library. Tickets are limited to 4 per family and cost $2 each.
Here is the order of items along with the holding rooms:
Group Performance Order + Holding Room
Year 8 Band
Into the Woods P and P
Senior/Junior Hip Hop
Film (P and P)
Closing (Franks item)
If your child is doing more than one item, they will need to be dropped off at the holding room of their first performance item and collected from the holding room of their last item at the end of the evening/day. It would be advisable to write on their arm the order of their holding rooms. We will have teachers collecting and delivering children to the hall.
You should have received an email from Peaches and Pickles letting you know what their costume is. Tuesday is a full rehearsal, Wednesday is dress rehearsal.
Questions to ask when reading at home:
Who were the characters?
Where was the book set?
What happened/ What was the problem? / What was the solution?
Your chance to order jewellery and calendars has been extended until Monday.
There is a whole school assembly this Friday.
Wow it's hard to believe that we have almost completed our second term at school. We have come a long way and learnt so much!!!!
