Don't forget the Meet the Teacher evening THIS Wednesday (17th) at 7pm in room 1. A reminder that this is not the time to talk about individual students, it is just a quick 30 minutes introduction to me, the classroom and our programme.

Students are asked to bring in a variety of smallish things to glue to a mask that will reflect their unique identity. This can be photos, small ornaments, toys, ribbons etc etc. It will be a 3D mask. Please have this by Tuesday.

Welcome to 2016 to all students and families. I am really looking forward to my new class and I know that we will have lots of fun learning this year.

Our first focus is 'Identity' and we will start with our ancestors, then ourselves, then Christchurch and finally New Zealand and its Pacific neighbours. We will be looking at lots of exciting subtopics and a lot will be self chosen by the students themselves, based on their particular interests.

For your benefit the first homework requirements are now outlined on the homework page (to the left). As always this will be directly related to our classroom programme. Each week there will be spelling, reading and a special task. Students should work for 1/2 hour five times a week and this can be done whenever it suits them outside of school timetable. NO STRESS! Please email me immediately re any problems or queries etc.
Please note your child does NOT need to have ready the biography before coming to school - just bring it on the day please.
