We have a wonderful term ahead of us.
Just a few reminders for you all at home.
Spelling: Your children will bring home a list on Monday with highlighted words. These are the words we would like for them to be practising at home. This can be practised on a spelling app on a device, with chalk outside on the driveway or good old pen and paper repetitive writing. They will choose 5 of these words per week to bring home in their notebook. We have seen significant progress from our Te Pihinga kids in this area and learning at home as well as school really has an impact.
Reading: Some children in Te Pihinga bring home daily readers. Some children are encouraged to choose their own chapter book from our library sessions on Thursday to take home to read. We always have books available in class for your child to take home. We would love for our Te Pihinga kids to read for at least 20 minutes each evening.
We are very excited to extend a warm welcome to our Principal Mrs Sarah Morris, hopefully, many of you can make it to our community powhiri tomorrow.
Maths: We know a lot of you like to help out with your childrens math learning at home. Often parents have very high expectations of what their children should actually be learning, please take the time to read the charts below to see what your child is currently working on.
We are really looking forward to what Term 3 has to offer our tamariki in Te Pihinga. Please make sure to send us an email or pop in to see us with any queries.
