Please remember that fruit contains sugar and acid which can add to the risk of decay in your child’s teeth.  It is dentally unwise to allow your child to “graze” on fruit.  Fruit should be given as part of one of the recommended 3 meals and 2 snacks your child would normally have each day.

MAORI IN THE MAINSTREAM

Week 2

Tēnā koutou katoa

This week’s focus is on pronunciation so I have included a table that sets out the consonant and vowel combinations. We sing these combinations in class so ask your child if they remember the tune.

Challenge: use the chart and local place names to practise pronouncing Maori place names: Po/ra/nga/ha/u   Waipukurau, Onga Onga, Tikokino, Otane

Learning Te Reo

h, k, m, n, p, w … These letters are pronounced just the same as they are in English.

r… Is pronounced with a soft roll.

t… Has a dull sound when used with vowels ‘a’, ‘e’ and ‘o’ and a sharper sound when used with vowels ‘I’ and ‘u’.

ng … Is pronounced like ‘ng’ as in sing.

wh .. is a soft ‘f’ sound, like the ‘ph’ in phone.

 

a… as in car

e… as in egg

i… as in igloo

o… as in order

u… as in pudding

 

a… as in far

e… as in fare

i… as in fee

o… as in for

u… as in food

 

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Firstly a massive thank you to all the parents who came to school for parent/teacher interviews.   For those of you who did not manage to make it to an interview, please contact the office to set up an alternative time.   I’m sure the goal setting you did with your child was important and will set them up for success.  A huge thanks to staff and prefects who spent time ensuring everything went smoothlyMitchell Thompson, Serenity Williams, Jaelyn Watene and Olivia Johnson will receive a free lunch for their services to the school during parent/teacher interviews.

I have mentioned in previous letters how important it is for students to be on time to class to ensure they are making the most out of the best learning time.  I must also add that students should not be coming to school as early as 7:20 am.  8:00 am is the earliest time students may be at school.

Anzac day falls on the 25th of April (right in the middle of the school holidays).  I will be asking my Leaders to attend the Anzac parade and will give out notices prior to the holidays.  Please note that poppy day is on the 15th of April.  These poppies will be available in the office in return for a donation.  All proceeds to the RSA.

Once again, thank you for the huge turnout for parent interviews.  Have a good week.

Maori in the Mainstream

Terrace School mainstream teachers are participating in developing the use of Te Reo Maori in their classrooms. This is following Ministry of Education requirements for a school wide programme from new entrants through to Year 8.

We will focus on seven stages of language beginning with introductions in Maori. Maori language will be used in the context of the classroom so that it is a natural part of the school day.

Weekly instalments of Te Reo Maori will be included in the newsletter for your information, awareness and to encourage our children to use what they are learning outside of the classroom.

Greetings:

Tena koe – hello to one person

Tena korua – hello to two people

Tena koutou – hello to three or more people

Tena koutou katoa – hello to all of you

Kia ora – hello – more informal

Mga mihi nui ki a koe – greetings to you

Morena – good morning

Ata marie – good morning

 

Next week will include pronunciation tables for your reference.

We need a coach/parent help for Saturdays for the Year 1 & 2 team and the Year 3 and 4 team.

 

We need a coach for the Year 5 and 6 team. This year we will have a second Year 7 & 8 team and we also require a coach for that team.

 

We urgently need to get these coaches sorted as the teams and players need to be registered by April 15th 2016 (last day of term). If you are able to coach or be a parent help (Years 1-4) then please see the school office or Fiona Wilder at Terrace School.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the parents and staff who took our students on a trip of a lifetime to Wellington.  The students have shared many of their experiences with me and it sounds as though an awesome time was had by all.

Most afternoons I like to stand at the school entrance to say goodbye to the students.  I have noticed that there are times when parents are allowing their child to sit on their laps behind the steering wheel of their cars when they drive in.  This is illegal and not a great example to our children, please refrain from doing so.  I have also seen parents with their children crossing the road without using the pedestrian crossing, to create good habits for your child please use the crossing.

Thank you to those parents who have addressed the issue of their child coming late to school and are ensuring they are on time.

Our Easter raffle is underway, there is a first, second and third prize that will be drawn tomorrow.  The prizes look delicious.  Remember that it is sausage sizzle week tomorrow too.

Congratulations to Jade Haenga!  Jade won a free lunch (tomorrow as it is an Easter holiday on Friday) for her answer to the Junior Maths question in the newsletter.

Enjoy your Easter break and remember schools also have Tuesday the 29th as a holiday.

ACIDITY OF DRINKS  

The pH scale measures the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Pure water has the neutral pH of 7.  Solutions with pH values lower than 7 are acidic.  Milk is 6.8 and is considered LOW risk.  Fizzy drinks and juices can range from pH2.3 to pH 3.9 and are HIGH risk.  The levels of acid, which can erode the surface of the teeth, is not published on the drinks by manufacturers.  ACIDITY of drinks is a HIDDEN danger.  This includes DIET, SUGAR FREE and ZERO options.  It is wise to consider any drink, other than water or milk, a potential danger to your child’s teeth.

Tēnā koutou ngā mātua o te kura – Dear Parents

Welcome to another hectic week.

We had a very successful inter-school swimming sports last week, today, the juniors will be striving to do their best in our pool too.

A group of our athletes took part in the police PCT much to the delight of the ex-Terrace students down at the College.  Congratulations to Olivia Johnson who made it into the CHB team.

School camp is coming up next week and I know there is a lot of excitement around it.  Please ensure all permission slips, medical information and money is in to the office.

Parent/teacher interviews are just around the corner.  I have put them down in our calendar for the 21st and 22nd of March.  Unfortunately with senior camp this will prove very hard to get times back.  Therefore the new parent/teacher interviews for the year 4s and up, will be the 4th and 5th of April.  As the Junior School have been having interviews throughout the term, they will not have interviews at this time and school will be as usual.   This is the week following Easter.  We are lucky to have three days to enjoy our Easter break this year (Friday the 25th, Saturday, Sunday, Monday the 28th and Tuesday the 29th of March).

I know I have shared with everyone that since our decile change we have a lost a lot of money from our operations grant.  We still have the same needs however and would like to begin a committee called “supporters of our school” or SOS.  This group would help us think of ways and organise how to raise money for our students so that they can reach their full potential and have every opportunity to be successful in various areas.  Please contact me directly or leave a message with the office expressing your interest in supporting our school.

We are trialing a new way of keeping whānau informed about progress.  Today teachers will be sending home books to show you what your child has been doing in class.  Please read them, make a comment if requested and send back to school the following day.

Lastly there are a group of parents/staff members who have expressed an interest in playing social netball each Saturday.  Feel free to come along and support us as we will need it.

Mathematics

Making progress in mathematics is a school wide goal.  Each week I will put in a junior and senior challenge in the newsletter.  Please solve these problems with your child then they can bring the answer back to school by Friday and be in the draw for a free lunch the following Friday.

If you have expertise in mathematics and would like to support some of our students who struggle in this area, please let the office know when you could give us some of your time.

Junior maths challenge.

I own 5 cars and a very large garage.

If I can see 2 cards parked outside the garage how many are inside?

How many different ways can I park my car inside and outside the garage?

Senior maths challenge

Mr Dale bought some pigs, goats and sheep. Although he bought 100 animals and spent $600.  Mr Daley paid $21 for each pig, $8 for each goat and $3 for each sheep.  There was an even number of pigs.

How many of each animal did Mr Dale buy?
