Team Puriri has had a successful term learning and mastering new ideas and tasks. All the students participated in the poetry and speech writing activities . Each class chose a group of students to go through to the Year One, Two and Three semi finals. Puriri students were very successful and we were well represented in the finals.
Three Puriri students were awarded Highly Commended in the Year one and two Poetry finals.
Four Year 3 students were chosen to go through to the finals. They received Highly Commended awards, with Kayden Wood from Puriri winning the final.
We are all very proud of you. The standard of our students poetry reciting was high. Thank you for helping at home.
Last term, we also welcomed a brand new class of students and a new teacher into our team . Miss Caitlin Myers started a new class in room 25.
Pigeon Mountain Primary and Puriri Team welcome you and your family to our learning community.
We also enjoyed Book Week and the many book activities that we took part in . Thank you for helping your child to dress as their favourite book character. They all looked amazing. Also many thanks for popping into the library and taking part in the activities there.
- During Term 3, our inquiry led us to think about all the different ways we celebrate special occasions, how different groups of people celebrate and how this has changed over time. We decided to have a Te Reo focus. The students were very engaged with the activities especially the poi songs and dance and the Haka. We were delighted with the way they learnt and their enthusiasm. We presented this at The Team Puriri assembly and the students performed extremely well.
In Term 4, we are focussing on the art of storytelling. We will look at how people tell stories in many different ways and why people tell stories.
