Weekly Notices, Week 10, Term 3, 2017

Room 16, Weekly Notices, Term 3, Week 10 (25 - 29 September 2017)

This is the last week of term 3 before two weeks school holidays. First day back is Monday 16th October. Thank you for all of the support you have given this term with your child’s learning. This week we will be finishing off portfolio-blog work, doing a little testing and completing of assessments. We are well ahead with this already so should be able to do some extra fun and interesting activities this week.

Holiday reading logs have been given to children. I have sourced some summer themed prizes: boogie boards, skim boards, snorkel and flippers as well as all the other stuff and they are now on display in the hall foyer. Please encourage your children to start the logs as soon as they get them. Children are able to take journals and class library books home if they ask. There is some fantastic stuff going on at the City Library over the holidays too:

There will be a celebration in the staffroom on Thursday at 9:45am for several children nominated from each classroom, who have done particularly well this term. Nominated children will be notified early in the week.

Pasifika practice in the hall 11am on Friday.

Reminder:
Forms for parent input into 2018 class placements were issued the week before last to each student. Parents  - please note these forms need to be returned by Friday 29 September if you wish us to consider your input. The forms need to be returned to the big blue postal box in the student foyer.

Thanks to those parents who have already returned the form for their child/ren.
If you have mislaid or not seen the form you can collect a copy from the School Office or go to this link

Touch Rugby starts this week for those students signed up, so check practice times. Mrs Hall’s Weka's team will be training on Tuesday at 12:30.

Science - Pohutu Geyser

 Mr Billing came to our class to do some science about geysers and how they work. We enjoyed discussing what was happening and seeing the simulation outside. We talked about data on a graph and drew our own labelled diagram.
