Thank you for all of your ongoing support and offers of help in the Year Two team.  We appreciate all the help offered for swimming this term and look forward to our lessons that start on day one!

 

For Term Four we will focus on Identity and what that means to us as individuals and as part of a group.  We will also be learning about fire safety through a programme called "Get Firewise” which is provided by the New Zealand Fire Service.

 

Information about our final open day towards the end of the term will be in the school notices.  If you can make it, we look forward to seeing you there and sharing the learning that happens in our Year Two classrooms.

 

Our Year 1 and 2 Junior Athletics is planned for Wednesday 6th December with a postponement day of Friday 8th December.  More information will come closer to the time.

 

The children will eat in their classrooms during wet lunches and outside under the sunshade in the junior playground when it is fine.  They have 10 minutes to eat their lunch together (more than 10 minutes if necessary!) and sunhats are compulsory when outside for Term One.  Children will be able to bring their own hats to school as long as it is a sun safe hat i.e. a bucket hat or wide brimmed hat.  We would also like children to wear their hats to and from school.   All children will be expected to wear a hat when they are outside at school.  If children don’t have their own sunsafe hat at school, they will be provided with a school sunhat to wear when they are outside.  School hats will be washed after they have been used before they are given to another child to wear.

 

Reading and spelling will be sent home in book bags regularly.  Browsing box books are in each of the classrooms as part of the reading material for our learners.  These are a selection of books that may be familiar to the students.  They are made up of mixed levels, which are lower than the guided reading level.  Reading a familiar text contributes to your child’s overall literacy learning and enjoyment of books.  Reading to your children is still so important at this age and for them to enjoy the books you have at home too.

 

Can you please send Kōrero Books back to school so that we can continue adding your children’s fantastic work.  These will be sent home at the end of the school year for you to enjoy at home during the summer break and in years to come!

 

The KNS Values are an important part of our Year Two programme and we will continue to highlight the importance of these throughout the year.  Respect, responsibility, excellence, empathy and integrity are the five school wide values.
