Term 3 Week 7 News

Wow – once again the term is flying by….

We missed our Library session last week due to the short week. We went today and most children got out a new book. If they didn’t, because they still have one at home, don’t forget to send it in next Monday.

Lucky Book club is out again. If you would like to order please send the money to the classroom by next Friday (September 7th)

This week sees the start of our new Music Rotation. I have teamed up with Mrs Jarvis, Mrs O’Loughlin and Mrs Strand and the children will have one session with each teacher. Children will have an opportunity to experience a different aspect of music and dance each week.

We also start sewing this week. Thank you for the offers of help. If you have sent in your slip of paper I will contact you directly. If not, and you would like to help, just turn up on Friday at about 11:30. The more the merrier (and easier for all of us!)

We have had a very busy art day today. We have been practising our sewing skills ready for Friday and have been putting together our calendar artwork. We have also drawn and decorated dragonflies today – as inspiration for our sewing. Meg took some lovely pictures of us doing our work – look out for it on the blog.

Congratulations go to Greta and Isabella whose photographs were chosen to represent Room 4 in the photography competition held as part of the Magpie Cluster ICT Expo next week. The expo is to be help on Thursday 6th September 2012 at the Havelock North Community Centre from 10am - 6pm. Some children from Room 4 will be attending and running workshops. Permission slips for this event will be coming home this week. The purpose of the Expo is to celebrate the e-learning that has occurred during the past three years that HNP have been part of the Magpie ICT Cluster. The Magpie Cluster consists of six local schools (Te Mata Primary, Parkvale, Mahora, Mayfair and Frimley).

Children from HNP will be visiting the expo during the afternoon. We would encourage you, your family and friends to come along and participate in this event to support our school, as this is an opportunity for you to see what e-learning looks like in the classroom.

Hope to see you there!

Have a lovely week
