Kia Kaha-Cup Stacking Challenge

Kia Kaha 
This Term Tui Team are teaching Kia Kaha as part of our health unit. Through Kia Kaha students develop strategies for respectful relationships where bullying behaviours are not tolerated.
As part of Kia Kaha students completed an collaboration activity where they needed to collaborate effectively and be resilient to be successful with the task.
Students needed to stack cups on top of each other by using a rubber band and string. The strings we tied to the rubber band. Each student had to hold the string at the end and work together to stack the cups. They were't allowed to touch anyone else's string and they weren't allowed to hold the string close to the rubber band. 
There were 3 levels to complete. Level 1: Stack 6 cups
                                                     Level 2: Stack 9 cups
                                                     Level 3: 9 cups 1 metre string.

Supporting your child at home with school maths and extending their numeracy knowledge

It is important for parents to help support their child with their maths learning, so your child can retain the learning from school and to help them to be successful. A lot of the time parents don't know where to start with helping their child because the strategies are different from what they did at school.  The area where students need the most support is with numeracy knowledge such as basic facts, place value, forwards and backwards number sequence etc.  Here is a link to an awesome math site of ways you can help support your child with their school maths at home.
Here are some more e-learning website to make learning BF and PV fun

What's coming up in Term 3?

Hello Parents/Caregivers and Students,

It's now Term 3, can you believe it?  The first major school event taking place this term is the Reremoana School Cross Country which takes place on Friday. Please make sure you have filled in the permission slip and have returned it to me by Friday.

We have booked World of Maths to come in to our school next Friday (August 4th 2017). The World of Maths Roadshow is an ideal opportunity for students to see how maths is applied to some real life situations. More importantly, students will be engaged in hands-on activities that will cater for all ability levels and probe their problem solving skills. It is a highly engaging session which will show the children that Maths can be fun!

Tui Team Celebration will be Friday Week 3! Please come along to support the students in Tui Team.

This term we will also be preparing for our Yr 5/6 Camp that will take place early Term 4. Please make sure you have made payment for camp by the end of this term.
