Kahikatea News Term 2 Week 8

Kia ora e te whānau, 

So many exciting things have been happening in the Kahikatea hub this week!


The New Zealand opera's "Opera in Schools" came to Beckenham Te Kura o Pūroto and performed 'The Elixir of Love'. 


Greta's mum Lauren came to show Fisher house and Tennyson how to make some delicious scones. The tamariki learnt how to measure ingredients accurately. The scones smelt delicious.

Clip and Climb 

Ella and Amber's homegroup had their trip to Clip and Climb. The children showed determination, resilience and teamwork. Everyone had so much fun! What a great afternoon! 

Other Learning in the Hub

Cyber Safety 

Awareness of Online Harm
Many parents didn’t grow up with the internet, so it can be hard to imagine how tamariki may use it. But digital technology is a key part of our young people’s lives these days. They use it for learning, communicating and entertainment.

Netsafe has released research that looked into parental awareness of children’s experiences of online risks and harm. The research found a mismatch between parents’ awareness and their children’s experiences of upsetting online content.

Our PB4L focus of the week is determination. Here are the links to a short story about determination and a catchy song. 


Our maths focus of the week has been learning how to measure accurately. The children have learnt to measure in non-standard units (e.g. plastic multilink cubes) and also learnt how to use a ruler.

Here are some helpful resources:


Just a reminder that due to serious allergies in the hub, we are a nut free zone. Please can children not bring in nut products such as peanut butter sandwiches and coconut snacks. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

                               Have a great weekend everyone!
