Week 6 Term 3 2022
Kia ora e te whānau,
We have kowhai blossoming and daffodils waving so warmer weather is on its way.
The children have been busy planting in the garden this week. We will be doing some more gardening next week so that everyone has a chance to put some seeds or seedlings in.
Week 7 is Conservation week so we will be out and about in nature.
Tomorrow is Teachers' Only Day. I hope you get to enjoy some time outside if the weather is fine.
Relationship and Sexuality Education - Monday
We have started our Relationship and Sexuality Education programme.
This lesson was not taught this week due to illness so it will be this coming Monday.
The topic this coming Monday is as follows:
Y2s -Learning outcomes
Students will identify and name their body parts.
Students will identify private body parts.
Y3s -Learning outcomes
Students will describe the different stages of human growth, from birth to old age.
Students will describe some of the changes that occur to their bodies during puberty.
This part of the program contains a brief description of how babies are made. This is for the Y3 children only.
For those of you who were unable to come to the parent meeting the link to our presentation is here.
If you have any questions please contact Amanda at email@example.com.
We appreciate your co-operation.
We sell all the books needed at school and can add the cost to your account for you to pay later. We will send you an email to let you know we have done this. Most of the books are about $3.
Let us know if you would prefer to provide your own or if you have any that were sent home in Term 1 you can return them for us to use.
