Kia ora and welcome to Term 3.
We have an exciting term ahead!
Literacy- we will be finishing our work on famous New Zealanders and moving onto persuasive writing and narratives. Our class novel is Skellig by David Almond. I’m envisaging that we will do some drama related to this. We will also be doing instructional writing based on games.
Maths – we will be completing our geometry work and moving onto algebra. A+B=C!!
Our integrated topic this term is based on games and students will be learning games from other countries and cultures as well as designing and making their own game.
PE and Health – it is imperative that all students have their PE kits at school daily. We will be practicing for the annual cross country event, doing circuit training, some basic gymnastics and also some dance and movement related to our visit in Week 6 to Trash Test Dummies!
Japanese language and culture lessons take place weekly from wk 3-wk 8 with our exchange student.
MUFTI days are on 7 August.
MANA REWARD DAY is 23 August 2019.
CROSS COUNTRY STANDARDS ARE IN WEEK 6 AND THE CHAMPS IS THE FOLLOWING WEEK, WEEK 7.
CAMP TAKES PLACE IN WEEK 10.

As usual I will try and keep you abreast with what’s happening in Room 21 via class dojo. Get in touch if you have any questions.
Kia kaha! We’re in Term 3! (with the wind and rain, we got this!)
