Kauri Newsletter Term 4 2013
This term Kauri has some fun activities to look forward to. Monster Mash is this weekend, please make sure you have brought tickets for your family. Kauri has the fortune telling stall and the lolly game. I hope you have managed to contribute to these stalls.
We are going on our Kauri overnight camp to the zoo on Tuesday 29th October. Children need to be at school at 3:45 pm ready to catch the bus at 4 pm arriving at the zoo at 4:30 pm. The next morning (Wednesday 30th) we leave the zoo at 8 am and return to school at 8:30 am. Children will need to have lunch for the following day prepacked or delivered the next day. On the Wednesday is a Whanau group morning but you are welcome to collect your child anytime throughout the day if you feel they will be too tired. A gear list and itinerary will be sent out next week. If your child has medication they need to take, please put in a named plastic sealable bag and give to Lisa Cooney.
Congratulations Vauxhall School. You raised just over $400 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
Kauri Notice Tuesday 12th February 2013
To Kauri parents and care givers,
Welcome to Kauri. We have had a great start to the year, everyone has their stationary and are enjoying having their own desks. Most children are remembering their hats and swimming togs which has been fantastic please keep this up. This year our focus is up, up and away, which is about exploring flight. We will be taking a class trip to M.O.T.A.T later in the term. Our goal for this year is to continue to extend the children by asking them to work independently and to take risks in their learning.
Homework this term will consist of:
Mathematics – Two tasks will be set on Mathletics on a Monday, these are to be completed before practicing basic facts on Mathletics live. The next Monday we will print off a record of everyone's scores of their homework and the next week's homework will be set. It is also a goal that every child knows their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. These can be practiced at home.
Reading – Children will need to choose their own books to read at home. They may get books from the school, class or public library. The expectation is that every child is to read daily. Each child will need to complete a review of the book they have been reading that week. This will be handed in each Friday....
