Year 5 Newsletter Term 1,  2015

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Welcome to term one of Year 5 at Papatoetoe Central School. Kakapo

The Year 5 Kakapo team have settled in very quickly and are well on their way with their learning. We start this term with a big focus on individual goal setting. The students all have an individual writing goal that they will be working on this term. You could ask the children to share these with you. This term our students will be taking swimming lessons at the Papatoetoe Centennial Pools. Please check the class blogs as they are regularly updated with what’s going on at school.

Homework

Homework is set each Monday and due each Friday. It is really important that children read each night and practise their basic facts and spelling words.

Pasifika Showcase

After the success of the Pasifika Showcase last year there will be a whole school Maori and Pasifika Showcase this term. The Year 5 Kakapo team will be learning all about Niue and we would like to extend an invitation to any parents or caregivers to come along and help with items for this. Please do come in and see us if you can offer any ideas or expertise.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind parents and caregivers that you are welcome in class between 8.30am and 8.50am, and straight after school. Teachers are always available at these times to talk with you.

We look forward to working with you and your children this year as we move students on with their learning.

Regards,

Maggie Lee, Michelle Prasad, Paul McAleer and Alex Hanson
