Term 3

 Term 3 is expected to be another busy term full of learning and school wide events.

We start the term by heading to Rakaia Island to help with a restoration planting project – The planting day is an opportunity for the students to give back to our local community and learn about the different species of native plants.

Our Numeracy focus this term is proportions and ratios and geometry and measurement: turns and time. Basic facts continue to be taught and tested on a fortnightly rotation.

Reading and writing will continue as normal. Most children will bring home reading books from Monday through Thursday. I encourage children to also be reading a novel of their choice at home.

Inquiry this term is The Arts based with a school wide production. We will be super busy writing our class scene and pulling this together with music, dance and drama. 

The Year 5/6 Winter Tournament is in week 3. We will then complete a Boccia unit before diving into Athletics training as the weather warms up.

Dates to remember:


Wednesday 25th – Rakaia Island Restoration Planting


Thursday 2nd – Year 5/6 Winter Tournament

Week 10 – School Production
