Term 4 Week 6 news

Kia ora e te whanau,

We have had a busy and exciting last few weeks of school in the Koru team! 

Since our last blog we have been investigating, what we might want to be 'when we grow up'. Some of the careers we have looked at are: firefighters, astronauts, pilots, retail, police, engineers, and teachers. 

We have been loving spending Friday mornings down in Treemendous!

Lots of fun water play!

Fun with Ferndale!

We have been coding the Beebots to move through mazes

The digging continues...

Making huts!

Making a home for Bounce and Skip.


Practising our skipping!

Marae Trip

We were very fortunate to go to Rāpaki Marae this week, and want to say a BIG thank you to all the wonderful parents and grandparents who came along to help. We had a fantastic time exploring the marae, and learning about Rāpaki's connection to its whenua. The children were very excited about travelling on the double decker bus to Rāpaki, and they have hopefully shared some highlights with you at home. 

Ready to leave in the morning!

We had a lot of fun on the double decker bus!

Athletics Update 

As our athletics was postponed earlier in the term, we have arranged a new date to hold our junior school athletics. This will now be on the 9th December from 1:40pm-3:00pm. We will be doing this alongside the rest of the junior school (Y0-Y4) out in Beckenham Park. Parents, caregivers and supporters are all welcome to come and watch. 

Sunscreen and Hat reminder 

As the weather is getting warmer, please remember to sunblock your child/children before coming to school. We do have sunscreen that we can re-apply throughout the day. Also please make sure hats are coming to school everyday. 

With only 3 and a half weeks of school left to go, the school year is quickly coming to an end. We hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!

Ngā mihi mahana, 

Jo, Elizabeth, Sari, Stacey and Sophie
