Teacher – Ruth Pannet
It’s looking like a busy term ahead for Kahikatea. We will continue our school-wide ‘Identity’ topic by looking the Maori identity/history of NZ and more specifically the South Island, through myths and legends. This will cover Reading, Writing, Art and Social Science curriculum areas.
We have both the Lincoln Zone and BP Winter Tournaments to look forward to this term, and have been working hard practising rugby and netball skills this week. The children will also work in groups to invent a new game for 5-13 year-olds to practice large ball skills.
Other highlights include the Cantamath competition and the Ellesmere Speech competition.
To cap the term off, we will head to Wainui YMCA Camp in Week 10 with Totara. This will be a great opportunity for the children to test their physical and mental limits, develop socially, and also learn more about our local Peninsula environment.
