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 :)

These creative girls are loving our Tuesdays at the Castle book, so much so that they are even making crowns to be just like Princess Celie and Princess Lilah.
