Kia ora whānau,
What a wonderful first full week back learning at school! It has been great to see all the students back on campus and we are looking forward to everyone coming back on site when we reach Level 1.
Over the last three weeks of term, our inquiry is "Travelling the World via Art" where we look at different cultures around the world and how art is made and celebrated. This week various homegroups have travelled to Mexico, Egypt, Australia, Vietnam and the UK. Over the next few weeks all of the students will get to learn about art from these countries and create different art using pastels, paint, sketching and clay.
As Sandy mentioned in the newsletter on Friday, over the next two weeks we will be completing various assessments. This means that your child won't necessarily bring home reading books with them. Please help us by continuing to read books of their choice at home with them.
Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
This week we have been celebrating the Māori language during Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. Here is an activity you might like to try at home.
Paki Whitu Game
Have some fun with PAKI WHITU - This game requires the use of your hands.
Term 4 Miniball
Please read and fill out this survey if your child is interested in playing Miniball in Term 4.
Kōwhai Hub activities
We have loved getting back in and exploring our learning through play. Here are some pictures of learning through play, and learning throughout the day in the Kōwhai hub this week.
Have a lovely weekend.
