Shadow Puppet

WALHT Use shadow puppet to share/read a story I can: - Work collaboratively as part of a small group - Take appropriate photos of each page in the story - Carefully and clearly read out the story using fluency & expression

Check out our amazing reading! Room 14 have been learning how to use a new iPad App.  On Friday, we had a go at taking photos of different books from the library and then recording ourselves reading the stories. We then shared them to Seesaw by scanning our class QR code so that we can keep track of our videos. It was SO much fun. Once we get better at taking photos and recording our voices, we will try make some more exciting videos to share. 

Watch this space!

Listen to a couple of the examples below :)

Life Education


At Life Education this week, we learnt about giving positive compliments to our peers. 

After our session, we talked more about what it means to give a compliment. So we practised doing this for each other. We wrote things like - You make me smile, I enjoy having you in my class & Thank you for being a great friend. 
It was a great way to remember ways we can be positive and kind to each other.

It was a lot of fun :)

Can you leave a compliment below?

Zarah's Persuasive Piece of Writing

In Room 14 we have been learning how to write a persuasive argument. Fidget Spinners are super popular at the moment and we thought it would be a great idea to write about them.

"Should Fidget Spinners be allowed at School?"

Zarah worked really hard on her persuasive text. She followed the structure well and wrote four very persuasive arguments against having Fidget Spinners at school. I was definitely convinced that they should be left at home!

Go Zarah!

Book marks

Today we made book marks (inspired by the book we are reading, Matilda). 

They were so much fun to make - a little technical, but I'm sure we will be able to show our friends and family at home how to make them using 1 single piece of square paper. 

We can't wait to use them!

Tuesdays at the Castle

Week 9 update

Chapter Chat has come to an end for Term 1. This term our novel study was based on the incredible story called - Tuesdays at the Castle written by Jessica Day George. It was an awesome first book to get us going as we took part in our weekly Chapter Chat sessions on Twitter. Our whole Pukeko Team took part in Chapter Chat this term and we all LOVED it. We are really excited to start next terms Chapter Chat with a new novel and an absolute classic - Matilda by Roald Dahl. 

Have a look at some of the awesome work we got up to this term. Leave us a comment below -what did you think of our little video?

Mathletics & Spellodrome Fees


Just a friendly reminder Mathematics ($30) and Spellodrome ($11) payments are due by the end of the term. It would be greatly appreciated if you paid for these subscriptions as soon as possible. These programmes are beneficial for your child's learning at school and form an integral part of our weekly Homefun. Unfortunately, your child's Mathletics and Spellodrome logins will be blocked if payment is not received by Week 11. 

Payments can be made either via the online shop or directly to the school office. 
As always, your support is very much appreciated. 


Congratulations to Week 9's super stars - these children have been "Considering their choices - when faced with a problem, use traffic light thinking"

Go Pukeko's!

Hi Parents/Guardians, 

There was a little confusion with Homework this week as I have been absent. Just a reminder that if your child doesn't receive a paper copy at the start of the week there are two places you can find the homefun - on our class blog and in their homework folder in their google drive. 

As I was away this week - please do not stress if homework has not been completed :)
