Nau mai hoki mai ki te Wahanga Tuatoru.

Kua hikaka te hoki mai o nga tamariki ki te ako i to matou kaupapa hou ‘Te Taiao.’ I nga hararei kua taha ake i whakarereke i to matou akomanga, i whakairi hoki i etahi mahi hou hei hangai ki to matou nei kaupapa o tenei wahanga -whakapapa/pepeha, taumata, pakirehua ano hoki.

Anei etahi whakaahua o nga ahuatanga hou, ahuatanga rereke hoki ki to matou akomanga o Nga Kakano.

Our variety of different cultures and languages we share and use in Nga Kakano!

No hea matou display describing and linking our whanau to each other.

Our new roopu for Pakirehua, Tuhituhi, Pangarau me Panui

TAUMATA- The tikanga of our kura and identifying the next goals of achievement socially, culturally and academically.

For term 3 our main goal is to achieve our next taumata, converse in Te Reo Maori by using at least 3 different sentence structures and completing ALL our mahi by their due dates and to a very high and excellent standard.

These are the different kaupapa our tamariki will cover in Wahanga tuatoru:

Pakirehua (Inquiry): Te Taiao (Our environment) and understanding the relationship we have with the environment/nature and how our ancestors survived using the land/Papatuanuku

Tuhituhi (Writing): Tautohetohe (Speeches/debates) and using persuasive writing in a essay

Pangarau (Maths starand): Tauanga (Statistics Wk 1-5 & Fractions/decimals Wk 6-10)

Te Reo Maori: 

  • Learning our past, present and future tenses. Understanding the importance of tohuto and finding examples of these and using them in a conversation and recognising the differences when used and not used.
  • Completing our Wahanga tuatoru assignment on the revitalisation of Te Reo Maori in education

Nga Kakano are looking forward to an awesome term and we hope you can pop in sometime to see their hard efforts culturally, socailly and academically!

Reminders:

  • Dont forget whanau we have Student Led Conferences on Ratu/ Tuesday and Raapa/Wednesday. This is where our tamariki will be showing you their mahi from Term 1 & 2 and their reports. Please come to our hui. You can email me terinah@kelstonint.school.nz to confirm a time.
  • It is very important that our tamariki bring their P.E uniform every day! This is part of our Taumata and we do morning fitness from 10.40-11am daily. This is to increase their fitness and basic skills of body movement in a physical activity. Please check and re-check that your tamaiti has this in their school bags. Also their sports shoes is a MUST! Kia kaha whanau. If there is a problem, please let me know ASAP so we can awhi you. We are here to help 🙂

Kia pai to wiki, Waea mai mena patai he raru ranei: 021-267-0745

Nga mihi, Whaea Terina
