Week 4 Term 2

Kia ora everyone,

The Aotea Youth Symphony Trip

This trip is on Wednesday and thank you to all who have handed in permission slips and $2.  For those children who still want to go on the trip I need them returned asap.  We will be walking to the Mt Albert Memorial Hall departing at 8.45 am attending the concert and then walking back to school for a 11.00 am return.  I need parent help for this trip so please email me on stephaniee@gladstone.school.nz if you can help.  I have one parent who has emailed me at this stage.

Kiwiana Mobiles

As part of our poetry writing we have been exploring what it means to be a Kiwi/New Zealander.  We are making hanging mobiles to display our New Zealand poems.   These will include our poems and kiwiana objects. We started these last Friday and will continue to work on them over the week.  All children need to bring in materials to make their mobile such as kiwiana objects, wool, string, fishing line, strong sticks, bamboo.  If you have extra of any of these please bring them in as we are sharing when needed.

Cross Country

Cross country is this Friday and will be held over at UNITEC this year.  We will be going over to UNITEC after school assembly so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately with running gear.  You are all welcome to come and watch the event. 9 year olds will start at 11.10 and 10 year olds 11.40.

My first three weeks in Rm 14 have flown by and that is due to your children being so welcoming to me as their new teacher and being so positive and enthusiastic about their learning.  Please contact me at anytime if you want to find out more about what we are doing in the classroom or any aspect of your child’s learning or well-being at school.
