Term 3, Cross Country Week
Kia ora everyone,
Welcome to Cross Country week. It's going to be a good traditional one with......mud! Lots of mud! Unless there is an awful lot of sun this week. You never know, it could happen. 🌞
There are two more training runs - on Monday and Wednesday at 1.30. The actual run will be held at Edith Hopper on Thursday from 1 - 2 pm. Thursday is an event only for our Year 1 and 2 students. 🏃
A reminder that interviews are on Tuesday evening. School finishes at 12.30 on this day. I look forward to seeing you.
This week, we will getting down to some writing; re telling the story of the Three Little Pigs in a interesting way.
We'll study a completely new sound 'qu' and practice writing for ourselves, the contractions that we looked closely during reading, last week.
Fractions continue in Maths alongside our various number knowledge studies.
Maths Week estimating was fun last week! Congratulations to Kaitlin who was a winner in the Estimation Station draw! 🎉
One of our own estimations was linked to our Inquiry of movement of people. We read a book called "The Journey" and then we estimated how long it would take us to go around the bike track - sticking absolutely together like a family on an overland journey. We held onto skipping ropes and put our injured and not so well people at the front. We all agreed it felt like AGES and we were thirsty and had various aches and pains!! In fact it was only 14 minutes. 😆
Finally, just an initial heads up that there will be a Cultural Festival held on Thursday evening of Week 10. Our VLC is preparing art work for display and it is likely that our Year 2 students will perform an excerpt from our production. I will keep you posted as details become available.
Have a great week.
