We have all had a fantastic start to the year in Kahikatea Hub. We have been so impressed with how organised, keen and settled the children are. What a pleasure to be teaching them all!
We will be spending time this week establishing routines and ensuring the children are clear on expectations and shared understandings as hub, as well as getting to know and used to us as their teachers.
Notice to be returned
Last week your child was given an important notice (BLANKET PERMISSION FORM) that needs to be signed and handed back to the homebase teacher. We would love these in ASAP please.
Swimming begins this week and then we all head off to aquagym next week for a week of lessons. Further information will be given out about aquagym and times the children are swimming this week.
Kahikatea Swimming days and times are:
Tuesday 12:00 - 12:30
Wednesday 9:10 - 9:40
Thursday 2:00 - 3:00
Friday 11:30 - 12:30
This week we will be grouping the children and will then base our teaching to their group's needs. We will split the times given to us up fairly across the week for the children to ensure we are complying with the health and safety requirements at swimming time.
Learning Information Evening
On Wednesday we will be hosting the Learning Information evening in Kahikatea Hub at 6:00. We would love to see you there.
Home learning will begin this week. Your child will have a reading book, however spelling won't start until week 4 due to assessments and aquagym - the children will be tired enough that week.
This year we are so excited to finally have our School Library up and running. Our library times are:
K1 - Tuesday 1:30
K2 - Tuesday 2:00
K3 - Tuesday 2:30
If you are able to be a helper at these times to issue books and place returns back on the shelves, please speak to your chid's homebase teacher. We would really appreciate the help.
Have a great week
Jane, Trish and Fiona
