Friday, April 9th

 Hi all,

We have reached the end of another week and lots of learning. In science, students learned about circuits and how electricity is conducted to make things work. They made their own simple circuits to operate LED lights (see photos below). There is just one more week to go till the April holidays. At this stage of the term children are tired and it often shows in their behaviour. Make sure they have time to unwind and relax this weekend. We are nearly there! Stars of the Week were Ayesha, Prisha, Juwairiah, Kiri and Mele.

Week 9 - Thursday, April 1st

Hi all,

It was great seeing you all these last two days and discussing your child's learning. Your child has been busy lately and they have certainly earned a well-deserved Easter break. Stars of the Week are Sahar, Leah-Anela, Ayesha, Wil and Prisha. Below are some photos of Easter Bunny art they did this week. Enjoy! Have a great long weekend and I'll see you next Wednesday.

Week 8 - Friday March 26th

 Hi all,

What a fun week it has been with Khalid coming in his pizza truck and the students designing their own food truck business. This has been great integration of maths, reading, writing and art. Swimming has come to an end and students have learned lots. In reading this week students read a book about New Zealand birds then looked for them around school (see photos below). Stars of the Week are Bahes for his contributions at Circle Time and Kiri for his great reading.

Week 7 - Friday, March 19th

Hi all,

Students of Room 15 started their swimming lessons this week and are learning lots. A reminder this is part of the NZ Curriculum and every child must participate unless they bring a note and have a good reason not to. Swimming will continue every day next week. Next week is also Maths Week and there is some exciting stuff planned. Congratulations to the Stars of the Week - Juwairiah, Mele, Anthony, Sahar and Ayesha. Have a great weekend and I'll see you next week.

Hi all,

Congratulations to the Stars of the Week - Sahar, Juwairiah, Shuaib, Ayesha and Shalom. One of the highlights of this week was when students made a tornado in a bottle - very cool! See photos below. Have a great weekend and I'll see you all again next week.

 Hi all,

I am pleased that we are moving back to Level 2 on Sunday and school can open for everyone on Monday. I have enjoyed working with your child on Zoom this week and some in the bubble at school. Thanks for all your hard work with your child at home - I know how difficult it is! 

Today's Star of the Day is Viral. See his fantastic work below. Ka pai Viral. Thanks to everyone else who shared this week.

Have a relaxing weekend and I'll see you all at school on Monday.

Hi all,

With no community cases for three days in a row it's looking promising that tomorrow Jacinda will announce we will go back to Level 2 (who knows, maybe Level 1). Fingers crossed! Even Level 2 would be great so your tamariki can return to school on Monday. Watch this space!

Today's Star of the Day is Wil for his amazing New Windsor Way competencies poster (see below). Ka pai Wil.

Enjoy your day at home with your whanau tomorrow. I will be teaching the bubble at school so won't be doing a Zoom but will check emails after school.

Regards,

Mr Henderson.
