New learning in maths

Today in maths the children sorted shapes into 2D and 3D groups
I was very impressed with all students in room 4 - keep it up :)

A big welcome to Tamati who has joined room 4 today :)

Room 4 and myself want to say a big happy welcome to Awapuni school and room 4 Tamati :) We look forward to getting to know you and sharing our learning.

Newsletter term 2 week 1

Dear parents/caregivers,
Welcome to term 2! I hope you have had an enjoyable holiday – I have heard many stories from the children and it sounds like they all had a blast!

Term 2 is going to be a jam packed 11 weeks of learning, in week 2 we are going to MindLab as a class which I am looking forward to! We also have Life Education visiting Awapuni 11 – 15 of May and our focus is self-esteem and social relationships. The children and I are excited for Harold!

As poppy day was held in the holidays, Awapuni is having its own poppy day this Friday 24th April to raise money for the RSA. It is a gold coin donation for a poppy.

With the colder weather bearing in, please make sure your child’s jumper is named, and that they were shoes and socks on the colder days. We do not wear hats in term 2 or term 3 so there is no need for them to be at school anymore.

Yours in learning,

Alanna Morrow-Rankin J
