Week 8 Term 2

Environment Shield

We were awarded the Environment Shield last Friday at Whole School Assembly, for our fantastic and interesting classroom environment. The class and I were very happy to receive this award. It was great to have the children’s  writing, reading, maths and art work, which they have displayed in the classroom, recognised by the school.

Corban Art Estate Field Trip

Thank you to everyone who has handed in their permission slip and paid their $10 for our field trip to Corban Estate.  Also a big thank you to all who have offered to to come on the trip and provide transport.  If you haven’t yet returned a slip and money please do it as  soon as you are able.  The preferred method of payment for this on wrapitup.co.nz. Our field trip is on the 3rd of July, last Monday of the term.

Hands on Creatures 

As part of our Science curriculum we will be visiting “Hands on Creatures” in week 8 of this term, there is a $5 charge for this and the preferred method of payment for this is via The Edge.  Please register at https://parent.musac.school.nz if you have not registered.  A notice for this went home last week.  The classes who have already visited, have said the children loved the experience.

Strike

This week the children will be watching a music performance by Strike in the school hall and all senior classes will be attending a Strike music workshop at school.

Have a fantastic week everyone!

Kind Regards,

Week 6 Term 2

Evening all,

I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing long weekend.

The children have written some fantastic poems over the last five weeks and have read and studied many New Zealand myths.  Later in the term we will invite you to class to hear poetry and see some of the wonderful learning the children have been doing.

This week we start our focus on explanations in writing where we will be writing about natural phenomenon and we have a Science focus in topic, where we will be looking at a range of New Zealand flora and fauna.

Corban  Estate Arts Centre Trip

We have coming up on the 3rd of July, which is the last Monday of the term, a trip to the Corban Estate Arts Centre.  We will be travelling by parent cars leaving at 9.00 am and hopefully returning to school at 1.20 pm.  There will be a notice and permission slip going home this week.  If you think you can come on the trip and bring your car please indicate this on the returning slip.

Thanks, have a wonderful week!
