Giacometti Sculptures

Thank you for going to view our sculptures over the last couple of weeks and giving us wonderful feedback on them. They will be coming home at the end of next week.

Fun Run

Our Fun Run is just around the corner, next week, on Thursday 2nd July at 11.30am - 12.30pm. Whanau can meet up in the junior playground area. The children will be running around the outskirts of the big field which will involve running on the grass at times. We do appreciate that this will mean that it might be a bit muddy but that is all part of the fun! Please remember to send your child(ren) to school with sensible footwear for running, a drink bottle, spare shoes and socks and an extra snack for later in the day.

Arts Day

Next week, our team will be having an ‘arts day’ on Wednesday 1st July. Each teacher will be offering one of the four Arts disciplines; Visual Art, Dance, Drama and Music. The children will be moving around each teacher throughout the day and experiencing these disciplines in depth to build on what they have been learning in their hubs.


We are currently focussing on Measurement in our team. We are learning about ordering and comparing objects, using a variety of measurement words and estimating length. Please continue to build on these ideas at home as opportunities arise. 


We are learning about words we use in measurement like long, short, skinny etc. This is our first lesson and we are using play dough to make different lengths and sizes. 
Check our worms out! 

My worm is really wriggly and I think it's 12metres long. 

My worm is fat and long. 

It's skinny and it's long.
