We have now started our inquiry ‘Our Place in Space’. We are looking at the impact of the sun, moon and stars on earth and also finding out things about the other planets. We know that some children have a special interest in space. If you have any great books at home the children are welcome to bring them in for sharing (please make sure they are named).
Later this term we will be inquiring into Matariki. As part of our exploration we are planning on making kites (manu tukutuku). Over the next few weeks it would be great if the kids could bring in some thin bamboo, toitoi, feathers or small shells in to school to use on their kites.
Trip to the Museum
We have our trip to the museum today, Thursday 8th. We look forward to sharing some photos and some of the things that we learned at the museum in our next newsletter.
It is starting to get very muddy on the field so we are asking children to remove their shoes before they come into the classroom in order to keep our carpets clean. It would be great if the children can wear shoes that they can get on and off easily and quickly by themselves.
We are also finding that gloves and scarves are a distraction in the classroom. If children wear these items to school they will be asked to keep them in their bag during class time.
The Kowhai team have earnt their next reward of a dress up day. The children will be able to come to school dressed up in their favourite costume on Friday the 16th June.
