Kia ora & welcome to week 3.

This week the guest columnists are…
Maia Lee-McGill and
Did you know that this is what Gisborne used to look like? It is called Turanganui-a-Kiwa, or the resting/waiting place of Kiwa.
This week the senior syndicate
went to the museum and we
heard the story of the horouta waka. ask your child about the story they should be able to tell you the whole story.
This is a model of a waka hourua.
Nits are spreading around like butter on bread so please check your childs/childrens hair and treat their hair if they have nits. Nits have a 9 day cycle so check hair every week until they are gone.
This week’s Homelearning is a follow on from last week’s work. of building a pepeha.
This week everyone needs to practise saying their pepeha and memorising it so they can recite it without looking at their sheet.
The pepeha will be recorded and put on blogs as they are completed over the next 3 weeks.
A reminder that students can access this at home. Each Room 1 student has thier passcode glued into their Homelearning book.
Please encourage them to spend time on this site - it is perfect for consolidating times tables.
