Term 3

Term 2

Term 1
The children have been very busy writing their own fairy tales and uploading them onto Our Stories page. Please take some time to read them and see the progress they have made in their latest drafts.

The link I have included links to the E Fellows page which shares our E Fellows projects and journals. Take a look at what 10 educators (including myself) around the country are doing in regard to Literacy and E Learning . My project is focusing on the impact an online audience has on developing richer writing experiences. The students will reflect on the feedback and feed forward they receive from our online audience.If you would like to be part of the online discussions please me on ginnym@pekerau.school.nz.

I often search the net for helpful sites which are relevant to our curriculum areas. Check the pages on the left for the links. This link Feeding Our Future is one that I thought might be helpful to everyone so take a look at some great ideas for creative yet healthy meals.

Our mascot Tia the Kea has had fun sitting on a higher perch spying on us and our learning.
Tia has also been busy chatting away with the I Care Kiwi which we were given at our first whole school certificate assembly.
We have also noticed that I Care Kiwi and Tia have similarities as well.

Early in the term we will introduce you to our mini mascot Tia the Kea so watch this space.
