Teacher – Sarah McClelland
We have had a fantastic start to the term. I have really enjoyed getting to know the students in Kānuka and Tī Kouka, they have all been so welcoming. It was also great to properly meet and chat with the parents at parent/teacher meetings.
Last week we welcomed Umar to our class. The other students have been so positive and welcoming (often debating who will help him with learning routines and showing him where things belong).
The Kānuka students have been enjoying takaro pai time and love sharing with the class what they have done. We have also been doing playcentre visits and hosting school visits on alternate weeks. The children have been very excited to be the big buddies. We have been focusing activities around our letter of the week. This has included making and writing about rockets, dragons and goofy glasses. We are also enjoying our cross country training.
We are looking forward to diving into inquiry in the next few weeks and learning all about ‘What makes Little River special’….Sarah McClelland.
