Term 1

Kia Ora Whanau. Welcome back to 2017.

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready to embrace another busy year.

A reminder that for Term 1, all children need to have their sunhats. No hat, no play!

Team 2 students require their school PE Uniform on Wednesdays for Footsteps Dance.

Please check your child's swimming days and and ensure they have named togs, towel in a strong (named) plastic bag. Sunscreen should be applied in the morning. If your child requires more suncreen throughout the day, or goggles or caps for swimming, please ensure they are able to manage these on their own.

A reminder that the swimming programme is compulsory and water safety is part of the New Zealand curriculum. We are lucky to have qualified swimming instructors joining us for weeks 3-8. 

Please also check your child's library day. Team 2 children are allowed to issue 2 books at a time. 

We encourage our Team 2 students to become increasingly independent. Children are expected to bring their own bags to class, get themselves organised for the day, complete their class and homework and to take care of their own belongings. Please support us in encouraging independent behavior. 

Team assemblies are held on Fridays 10.15 in the hall, which parents are welcome to attend.

We have a busy term planned. Our main topics will be the Treaty of Waitangi, Sunlight (Health and Science) and our CARITAS (RE) unit is called 'Water'. In physical education we will be doing the swimming programme and grasshopper tennis. For maths we will focus on statistics, measurement and number knowledge and our writing will have a focus on personal experience and recount.

Our value focus is Diversity and we are learning to be Self Managers! 

We hope you have a great term

God Bless
Team 2 Teachers
