Term 3 Week 5 News

Kia ora whanau,

Next week is our Cupcake Day - excitement is brewing in the Te Whanau Koru team! This is a fundraiser for the SPCA.  We will be selling our cupcakes to staff and the Year 5 and 6 students of the school. A notice has come out to parents this week asking for donations of pre-made, un-iced cupcakes.  Thank you so much to the parents who have returned their notices. We are also looking for donations of empty ice cream containers with lids.  If you have any of these available, please send along to school this week.

Learning Conferences
Learning conferences are being  held next week, Week 6.  School closes on both Tuesday and Thursday at 2.00 p.m.  If you need your child cared for at school until 3.00 p.m., please let Jacky in the office know by the end of this week.  The Learning Conferences are a wonderful opportunity for the children to share their learning and their learning goals.  Your child will be supported to lead their own conference. We would appreciate Learning Conferences  to be booked online by this Friday.  Please check your emails for the link.

Pride Assembly
We have Pride Assembly this week at 10.00 a.m. in the hall.  Everyone welcome.

Thank you so much for the resources that are being returned to school.  Please keep these coming in, so that our new children have activities to use.

All children will be completing their Spell-athon testing this Friday.  The children will be bringing their completed cards home on Friday afternoon so that the sponsorship money can be collected and then returned to school.  No pressure, however, just a heads up...there is a prize for the first class to get all their sponsorship money back to school!

Friday afternoons:
We have noticed that many of our wee ones are becoming very keen to be involved in soccer, and we are suggesting that if children own soccer boots (or even if they don't - but perhaps send a spare pair of shoes along rather than risk masses of mud on footwear at hometime!), they can bring them along on Friday and we shall have a group of children playing soccer on the grass outside Rooms 1 - 4, at Friday Funday time after lunch.

Kind regards,
Amanda, Andrea, Jo, Cath, Rowe and Gail

Koru 12 cupcake posters

Yesterday we decided to make posters to put in the year 5 & 6 classes advertising our cupcake fundraiser. We thought they needed to tell the children what we were doing, and convince them 
to come and buy one. We also decided that the posters needed words and pictures. We planned the words they might have and the pictures.

Today we made the posters with a buddy. We had to talk to our buddy and make decisions together. Sometimes it was tricky to keep cutting and gluing but we stuck at it!

Koru 12 Paw Patrol Friday

We have been very busy this morning making pup packs and lots of other rescue dog items. We were all focused and on task- you could have heard a pin drop!
I made  a  paw patrol garage out of cardboard. The dogs park their trucks down the bottom and they live in the tower.
we used lots of different tools. We had to persevere because the cutting was tricky.

I made Syke's pac. It has goggles and her badge on the front.
