Learning in Week 1 - Reviewing The Learning Plan
For Week 1 of Term 3 all classes will be working on the same programme to ensure consistency of learning and behaviour routines across the school. This is called The Learning Plan.
Welcome back to School
Kia ora all and a big welcome back for Term 3. I have enjoyed hearing about the children’s holiday experiences. We have already had an exciting start with our Monarch butterfly (Mon) hatching at last. I am looking forward to another fun and exciting term of learning and teaching!

Big Idea: What changes do I need to make to achieve excellence?
CARE Value: Excellence
Deep Understandings: The children will understand
How the past is important to people, how places in New Zealand are significant for individuals and groups.
The children will be learning about a variety of changes they can make to achieve excellence and investigating why these ideas make a difference to their success as learners.
