Friday is the last day of term and signals we are halfway through the school year. Doesn’t time go by fast! I hope you all can have a break with your children, I know they are excited to have two weeks off and not have to get up so early.
We start school again on the 23rd of July with a new Inquiry topic of “communication”. We will be doing some interactions with Tauhara Primary by using different technologies. We will also be organizing some interschool visits.
Next term we will hopefully get up the mountain for a ski too.
On Friday we have our learning celebration. This will start with a shared lunch at 1pm till 1.30pm. At 1.30 the children will share with you some of their learning for term 1 and term 2. After the concert, you may take your children home. Please ring the bus driver if they are not traveling home on the school bus. They may wear mufti on Friday.
Reports will go home on Friday afternoon.
We will have parent/teacher interviews in week 2 next term. A form to fill in with preferred time will come home soon.
The data from term one and term two looks very good.
We have 100% of our students at their expected level for their age in writing. 75% of our students have moved up levels since the start of the year.
100% of our students have made good progress in reading.
50% of our students are already at or above the expected level for maths and we are only halfway through the year.
100% of our students are confident enough to speak in front of an audience, They made a fantastic job of their speeches and learned so much about Native NZ ( along with their teacher).
