Nga Mihi Nui Kia Koutou,
For those who I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Missy Subritzky and I am the newest member of Paparore’s teaching team.
Our class is TeTinana, which represents the body of our Paparore Tree.
I welcome you aboard our fun filled and first term for 2015.
Term 1 is ten weeks long and is going to be a busy one. Our last day of term is Thursday 2nd of April just before Easter.
This term our students are focusing on The Treaty of Waitangi, in which we are also incorporating our school values. The students will be using their research skills to look at different questions surrounding ‘Waitangi Day.’
Home Learning will consist of spelling, math, and reading, this is to be completed each night, and handed in to be marked each Friday. Please support your child with their home learning, as this also has an impact and strong link between regular home reading as well as your child’s reading progress across all curriculum areas.
Kiwi Sport – Jim Larkin
Jim continues to work with our students each Monday. Our focus this term is swimming and he will also continue with small ball skills and team games.
Our regular PE activities continue with fitness on Tuesday and Thursday and PE on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure your child brings their togs to school everyday and wear or bring appropriate clothing to take part in sports and fitness each day. If students cannot take part due to illness, they will need to bring a note to explain.
Mrs Radich will be working with Te Tinana every Thursday while I continue with assessments.
We welcome Mr Jonathan Pirini who has joined our teaching team at Paparore. Mr Pirini will be sharing his expertise in music and physical education with Te Tinana students on Thursdays and Fridays.
