Important fono for the parents of A6 on Wednesday 3rd July (5.30pm)

We would like to invite you all to a fono about the 'Pasifika Early Literacy Project'. It will take place in school at 5.30 pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday 3rd July 2019. We will start by sharing food at 5.30 before going on to learn about the Project (PELP).

The Pacifika Early Literacy Project (PELP) is an exciting initiative and our school has been chosen to take part in it. The project seeks to strengthen early literacy opportunities for bilingual learners, while also safeguarding the future of Pacific Island languages. Your support and participation is vital to this project and I am really excited for us to have an opportunity to be part of something that is so important for our children, both educationally and culturally.

Please come and join us on 3rd July if you can.

Thanks
Lizzie Gill

Samoan Language Week - please come in !

Hi everyone,
For Samoan La
Language Week next week, we will be doing various activities to celebrate Samoan Language and Culture. If any of you could come in to school at any point during the week to spend some time demonstrating  a craft, showing something interesting, telling or reading a story, or talking about life in Samoa, that would be amazing. You could do that in Engish or Samoan (or even both!).

On Monday morning the class will be in the whole school assembly at 9.30, where Isebella Lavea will be performing a Siva Samoa. On Friday morning next week, the class will be at Mass at St Anthony's and, as you know, on Wednesday, we are on strike. Apart from that, we will all be in class.

Thanks
Lizzie Gill

The children must practise these spellings at home every day to be able to learn them for the test and Friday. These are the words that they most need to use in their writing at Year 1 level. We have talked about different strategies to learn spelligs, including 'Look, Cover, Write and Check' .

The children who had these spellings will have them again (for the third week now). They have been getting 0 correct out of 4. Please make sure that they work at learning these spellings for a test again on Friday 17th. I have told them how important this is for their learning.

Please use the butterfly cards as well to practice the letters and sounds with them. It is vital that they learn these.

Thanks

School finishes at 12.30

Spelling Books in book bags please

The children must bring their spelling books to school every day. The most important days are Monday when the new spellings are stuck in to their books and practised in school and Friday's when I tick the words in their books so that you can see which ones they got right.

I have told the children how important it is that they keep their spelling books in their book bags so that they always have them with them,

Thanks
