Dear Parents/ Guardians/ Whanau,

On the second Monday of Term 3, the 30th July, Kate and I will be holding a Meet the Teacher evening at 5 o'clock. It would be wonderful to meet you all, so we hope you can make it. If possible, please let us know if you can, otherwise feel free just to turn up on the evening. 

Enjoy the holidays.

Caitlin has had a baby girl and named her Grace Hannah Daisy.  Weighing in at 7.1 pounds, both mum and bub are doing well.

This was a great time to talk about the cycle of life, we lost one pod member (Bea) and gained a pod baby!

Poetry Time in Room 1

My Flower is Growing by Summer

First my flower is a seed
and then I see a weed.
I quickly pull it out,
because I want my flower to sprout. 
But then I say look out!
Because it is a giant bean stalk
and then I see a hawk
and he lands on top
and then it went pop!

Daisy the Rabbit by Seth-Aaron, Riley and Madoc
Once we had a rabbit called Daisy.
She was very very lazy
and very very crazy                         
and her bed was very hay-zy.
