Koru Week 3, Term 2 newsletter

Kia ora e te whānau,

We are all so proud of you all. What you are doing for Learning at Home is impressive. Through Seesaw posts, phone calls and emails we know you are doing your best.

Our Seesaw interactions show us that you have been very busy. We love seeing what you have been doing, so please keep sharing via Seesaw.

Sharing our learning
This week we also shared some of the student work with the team. Have a look for this post on Seesaw, if you haven't already, and see what your teammates have been up to.

We can see many of you have been working with numbers to 10, learning your alphabet letters and sounds, learning your sight words and reading Sunshine Online. Ka Pai tamariki.

Koru Learning at Home web page
From next week our Koru Learning at Home page will look a little different. The same information will be available but will be displayed differently. We hope this will make it easier to find what you are looking for.

Welcome Assembly
Below is a link to the Term 2, 2020 Welcome Assembly. This assembly is a chance to welcome all the children who started part way through Term 1 until this week. A wee hint: it will be easier to watch the assembly if you adjust it to fullscreen.

For those who may be interested in a Lego competition
Junior Neighbourhood Support Canterbury challenges you to…
Make a Stop Motion Lego Movie!
You can use lego or other toys to share one part of your Covid-19 isolation time. Some ideas for the experience to share include (but are not limited to):
Keeping 2m away
Going to the supermarket
Staying at home
Leaving the house for exercise
Easter or ANZAC Day 2020

Send your entries to jns@canterburyns.net before Level 2 ends and we’ll put them into a movie that everyone can watch.

If you need some help getting started with Stop Motion, have a look at https://www.instructables.com/id/Stop-Motion-Animation-for-Kids/
Stop Motion Studio is a popular Apple and Android app to use to film and you should only need the free version. If you are using a Chromebook, you may like to try Stop Motion Animator (from the Chrome Web Store).

We hope you all have a lovely weekend in your bubbles.

Ngā mihi mahana,

Elizabeth, Stacey and Jo
