Term 2 Week 10
Whilst we now have a two week break from school, we are looking forward to some exciting learning opportunities next term with the visit from the NZ Playhouse and Maths week to name just a couple.
We will also be holding a parents and caregivers information evening on Tuesday 2nd August about our RSE (Relationships and Sexuality Education) programme that we will be teaching later on next term. The last school newsletter included an outline of what this programme covers. Please put this date in your diary - we will be sending out more information closer to the time.
NZ Playhouse - The Emperor's New Clothes
We are looking forward to having NZ Playhouse come to the school during the first week of next term to perform their Emperor's New Clothes play for the whole school. The tamariki thoroughly enjoy these shows, which allow us to bring the experience of the theatre to the children.
The Emperor's New Clothes performs on Wednesday 27 July at 11.45. The cost per student is $6.00 per person. Please pay via Kindo, internet banking or EftPos at the office.

This link will take you to guided lessons for writing the shapes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=609NcinTkGI
Please encourage your child to use these shapes as they write at home, and especially to write their name with a capital (upper case) letter at the beginning and then lower case letters for the rest of their name. This is something that we teach at school and encourage them to remember when they write their name independently.
