Buddy Reading with Te Moana

Teina/Tuakana Collaboration

Te Awa and Te Moana read collaboratively together as Teina and Tuakana. Each child has to share their learning goal then give feedback to their buddy about their reading. Te Moana enjoy sharing their novels with their buddies. The older students are so impressed by the improvement of reading fluency of their buddies. 

Tama the kitten visits school.

We are learning to write about something we have done.
Miss Simmonds brought her kitten Tama to school because we were learning about the letter K. Here are some of our stories.

Tama the kitten came to school today. I am scared because I don't want to touch him. It was funny when he had a sticky note on him.

I hate the rain because I love the sun and because it is better to play in the sun. I blow balloons because I have a party in my room and I put my own disco light then we have a party. I don’t like sleeping when it is raining.
