Term 2 Week 1
Monday 22nd April
Welcome back to Term 2, I hope you all had a great Easter and a relaxing break.
Discovery Learning starts again this week on Fridays at 11:20. You are all welcome to come in and work with your child during discovery time.
Homework – No homework projects for a few weeks as we have restarted discovery learning. However there is still plenty of homework!
· Reading - Your child should bring home a reading book each evening, there are new pages in the homework book to record the books read.
· Spelling – I tested the essential words lists at the end of last term. We have one more spelling test to complete this week and the page in the back of the homework book will be updated. There are new pages in the homework book to record the spellings learnt each week and we will test again in the last week of term.
· Maths Number Knowledge Ladder. All children will be tested this week and the new step to be focused on will be stuck in the homework book.
· Mathletics. Four homework activities have been set and need to be completed before Live Mathletics can be accessed.
Library – Our library day is a Monday.
Stationery – Some children may require more stationery items this term. Your child has written in their homework book if they need any additional stationery items. These can all be purchased at the office.
Waipawa Settlers Museum and Oruawharo Homestead Trip – This trip is next week, Wednesday 2nd May. Thank you for returning the permission slips and for so many offers of help for this trip. More information to come later in the week.
Newsletters and Notices – This is the last printed newsletter for this year. As this newsletter is printed, emailed and put on the blog I am going over to electronic communication only which will save on paper, glue and time. I will continue to email you on a Monday and put the newsletter onto the blog as well. You will continue to receive other school communication through your email (Tuesday Times etc) as usual. If this is going to be a problem for you please let me know.
Kind Regards,Karen Duligall
