Welcome to the final term of the year, and what a year it has been!

We welcome Ms Marianne Blair to Room 2 as Lisa Daily is now on Maternity Leave. Welcome also to Jane Lourie who will be teaching alongside Pam and Fiona in Room 4 for the first month of the term.

The children had their last dance lesson with Caitlyn on Monday and are now looking forward to our trip to the ASB Centre next week. In class our theme for the beginning of term will be health and fitness with a focus on our body. In Week 3 we have an educator working with our children from Zero Waste. The educator will be covering the unit on ‘Is that really rubbish?’ Then we will move on to doing some work based around the Short Film Festival which will be shown in the hall. Towards the end of term we will be looking at transition and wellbeing.

Thank you for your support last term as we moved to on-line learning. Fingers crossed we manage to get through this term face to face. In the meantime, please be mindful of not entering the classrooms while we remain at Alert Level 2. This also affects having open mornings but we are hoping you will be able to visit the classrooms for Te Rā Ahurea later in the term.
