Weekly Update


'Together we inspire learning'

Welcome to Week 9!
Hopefully, we will all be a little healthier this week. As we grow near to the end of this term I just want to say how much our class values your support. It is wonderful for every child to know that they have a great support network that involves both home and school. Thank you.



Maths – This week we will be working on place value and number addition. We will also continue to work on weights and geometrical position.


Reading – We are working again on making our reading smooth and fluent. It often helps to re-read a page once all the new words are learnt - this helps to take the ‘robot’ sound away. We focused on this a few weeks ago but it is good to review things a little and often.

Word work – We will be looking at the ‘gl’ and ‘ng’ sounds this week. For example, glowing


Inquiry – This week we will be making something that we can use in the playground. We need plaster of Paris to make it. I wonder if you can guess what it is?


Writing -  We will be doing a lot of writing about Matariki and the Maori New Year this week. There are a lot stories that I have chosen to share with the children. We will be looking at how to retell a story when writing.


Te Reo Maori – This week B2 will be looking at Matariki and finding out what it’s all about.



School Values – ORCA – The symbol of the orca is very important to Whangaparaoa School and is carried with us everywhere, every day on our uniform.

Each letter of the ORCA stands for a different value:
O – Ownership
R – Respect
C – Collaborate
A – Achieve
We continue looking at these values and how we can take them on board in our classroom.

Home books – Please continue to read and learn your spellings at home. Please try to remember to bring in your home books every day, thank  you.

Remember in Term 2 and 3 we do not need to wear hats outside.

Library day is Tuesday

Sharing news is on Monday and Friday

Many thanks for your continued support.


Libby, Simone and the children of B2
