Kahikatea – Yr 8

Yr 7/8 Teacher

Teacher – Ruth Pannet

After just 4 weeks in the job, I’m beginning to feel right at home at the other end of the school! The kids have been extremely welcoming and enthusiastic, and have made the transition as smooth and as easy as possible. They are a lovely bunch. It has felt a little like the beginning of the year again, getting to know one another.

The children have produced a very colourful collaborative ‘Kahikatea’ artwork, as well as some amazing abstract self-portraits, which have certainly brightened up the room.

We have been training in earnest for cross-country, trying to run a ‘k a day’. This is met with varying levels of enthusiasm! Half the class participated in the Lincoln Zone cross country.

Our Inquiry theme for this term is Little River/Banks Peninsula and we will launch more fully into that in the next couple of weeks…Ruth Pannett.
