Team Kahikatea has been busy this week finishing off our literacy assessments for the year and celebrating the fantastic progress each learner has made this term. We are so proud of all our beautiful tamariki!
Our learning focus turns to Fairy Tales for the next few weeks and will include a special trip to the Isaac Theatre Royal to see the Southern Ballet performance of Cinderella.
We will be learning about Fairy Tales from all around the world and celebrating the diversity of our tamariki through stories, retellings, and little performances.
If your child has a favourite Fairy Tale book they are very welcome to bring it along to kura and share it with their home group or literacy group.
Below is a YouTube video explaining What Is A Fairy Tale?
Thank you for clearly naming your child's school clothing. As the weather begins to warm up children take off jerseys, jumpers, socks, and shoes during the day and we really do want those items to be returned to the right person at the end of the day.
We spend more time outside at this time of the year, so we are encouraging the children to put on sunscreen before going outside.
Basket Ball Hoops & Football Sessions
New hoops have been installed on the court by the hall and our tamariki can use this area during break times. It is a shared play space so there will be Year 5 to 8 children playing there too.
Our football sessions continue to be a hit with all our tamariki. Here are some photos from this week...
Learning Through Play
Our tamariki just love the opportunity to play! Each week we run two to three sessions of Learning Through Play. We always include both inside and outside activities for our tamariki to engage in.
We often provide learning through play options that connect to our topics, so here are some gorgeous pictures of children creating and making Waka Houora...
