Week 8

It's Maori Language week this week. You could try out some of these words and phrases with your family at home.

This week in M1 we are revising, editing and publishing our narrative stories. We can't wait to share them with you when they are finished! We are going to learn to revise and edit using the ARMS and CUPS method:

It is Books and Reading Day on Wednesday this week. We will be rotating between our VLC classrooms engaging in activities to do with Dr Seuss books. It will  be a FUN day!
The children are getting bigger now and are enjoying the challenge of listening to a chapter or two of longer stories. To help support this we have been talking a lot about visualising the story in their minds ( we use this same strategy when writing our own stories). We have started the 13-Storey Treehouse in class and the children LOVE it! If you are looking for an engaging series that has short chapters and is as funny to adults as it is to the kids, then this series ticks all the boxes!


Hopefully you have had the chance to take a peek at the photos from our MOTAT trip following the link emailed out on Friday. If you did not receive an email, please let me know on and I will resend it. Due to the volume of photos, I won't be adding them all to the blog.

In Maths, The children working hard on their addition and subtraction strategies. They are also working on their number knowledge. The children are getting strong at counting up from any number to 100.  They find find it much trickier to count back from any number up to 100! Practising counting back helps support their subtraction skills, so challenge you child to do some counting backwards on car trips!
