Last Week of Year 1! 😢

Here it is... the last week of the school year. A time to reflect on the wonderful year we have had as a class and to prepare for Year 2 in 2018.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and friendship this year. Being new to the school, you made me feel very welcome and part of the community. Thank you! Thank you also for the way you have tirelessly supported your children's learning at home by reading with them, talking about their day and helping them to prepare for the next day. Thank you to all those who volunteered in extra ways also, from parent helpers for trips, to support in writing time, celebration activities and cutting and pasting! I appreciated your time and effort!

I know the children are well prepared to meet the challenges of Year 2 next year. They have worked incredibly hard, learning to read and write, solve maths problems with resilience, be part of a group, build stamina for tasks and develop social and communication skills. I am so proud of them and hope you are too.

Please stay in touch over the holidays and in 2018. I would love to hear about your adventures in the future.

This week:

Monday- Hannah in for Jo. We will celebrate Hannah at the end of the day with a book the children have made her. Next year Hannah is moving to the South Island where she and her partner are building a home. We will miss Hannah so much. She has been an incredible support to our class this year.

Tuesday- It's our End of Year Christmas Pigeon Hot Dog Party! We hope you can make it to share food and our Pigeon books at 12:00pm in M1. Please bring/send a plate of food to share.

Thursday: Final Assembly Y1 & 2 - 9:30-10:30am
                  Cookie Decorating with Wunny
                  Reports home

Friday: Children visit their Y2 Teachers & classroom at 10:15am
             School finishes at 12:30pm 

Have a wonderful summer break.  Thanks again for a wonderful year.
Signing out,
Jo Kember
