Hello From All Of Us In KIWI.....

Term Three:  Week Five:  Monday 21 August - Friday 25 August 2017: 

Thank you to Deb Lerew who relieved for me on Friday.  I went through to Queenstown to meet a student who will be coming to our room at the end of this month.  His family are moving to Clyde.  I hope Tanmay and his brother, Barji, enjoy being with us in our little family school, so much smaller than the large Queenstown Primary. 

Cross country was another wonderful day out.  We were so lucky with the weather.  It was a great achievement for so many students for whom running isn't their thing.  Everyone did so well and they all deserved their ice block at the end - thanks to the PTA.  The C.O. Cross Country will be held this Thursday.  I hope your child has given you the notice if they happened to get a placing at our event.  

Our ski day is planned for 25 August.  This is also the last week of Swim Safe.  We started ukelele with Baz last week and these will continue for the rest of the term.  He is getting us prepared to attend a Ukelele Jam Festival which is coming up in Queenstown.  Will keep you informed about this when we know more information.

In maths, we are looking at Probability and drawing and understanding graphs.
We start a new book for reading this week, with a lot of work to be completed on the story.
Social Studies will be looking at different places around the world where students from Clyde School come from.
Science will be writing up experiments and trying some one off problem solving.
Maori will involve learning more about rakau with Whia Maryanne and some basic commands that we use.
Art we will have a go at sketching buildings.

With only two terms to go, I hope the students are working through their Spirit of Clyde awards.  Some have already got a lot of activities signed off which is great to see.

A reminder that Term Three  continues with the Pie Warmers and that the Post Office will carry on with lunch orders on Fridays.  What's available is in the newsletter, along with the prices.  Money is to be put into an envelope, order and students name on outside and money put inside.  Some students put it into the lunch order bag which we will probably put in the hot lunches box at the staffroom door.  If they don't, the gopher comes around every morning and we put the orders in the bag.  

Any queries or questions you have about what goes on in Kiwi, please do not hesitate to talk to me.  I am available during the breaks during school time, or before and after school. My duty day is Thursday lunchtime and after school corner duty.  Please feel welcome to come in at any time just to observe or to spend some time with your child.  The door is always open!!
