Ngā mihi o Matariki, te tau hou Māori!
Kia ora whanau,
We are moving quickly to the end of Term 2 and it has been a busy term! It was wonderful to see so many of you here with us on Wednesday 30th June to celebrate Matariki - the Maori New Year. Our tamariki have enjoyed learning about Matariki, singing songs and creating crafts and sharing their wishes and hopes for the year ahead.
Hygiene and Keeping Well
We have robust hygiene protocols in place here in Team Kahikatea, including:
- Washing our hands before we eat
- Washing our hands after going to the toilet
- Using a tissue to blow our nose
- Sneeze and/or cough into our elbow
- Tables are sprayed and wiped daily
If your child is unwell PLEASE keep them at home until they are better.
Structure Literacy: Decodable Texts
We are noticing that some children are not brining home a decodable text to read to their whanau. Please send your child to school with their reading folder everyday. Your child's literacy teacher will send between 1 and 2 books home each week if your child has their reading folder then we know the book will stay safe and dry inside it.
Parent Playground Duty
Volunteers continue to be need for this. If you are able to help out please email Katherine Christensen firstname.lastname@example.org
Learning Through Play
Our tamariki continue to love, love, love Learning Through Play!
We are always happy to receive boxes for construction and/or crafting so please do keep brining these in. Our amazing Teaching Assistant's Michelle and Kate have washed and sorted all of our dress-up and now they are looking amazing! Thank you both. If you have any good quality dress up clothes for children please do bring them in.
