Stepping Out
Stepping out is a Road Safety programme that is run by the local police. Their aim is to help keep children safe on the roads. They provide fun road safety activities which children enjoy, and also give them helpful information about keeping safe on the road.

A Visit from Constable Paul on the 31 st of July 2019.
We had a special visitor this week. Constable Paul came to talk to us about road and car safety. We learnt lots about how to be safe on the road and in the car. We even practiced getting into a booster seat and putting our seatbelts on in his POLICE car!
To top it off, he showed us the flashing lights and sirens on the police car- they were very loud!


Language Experiences                   

Every week, the juniors come together for a language experience.

These activities are a whole language approach that promote reading and writing through the use of personal experiences and oral language. They provide the children with a fun and interactive exercise to talk and write about.

This week’s experience focussed on learning some of our essential spelling words - using shaving foam! The kids loved writing their words in the fluffy foam and enjoyed getting a little messy! It created a lot of discussion about the texture and look of the foam as well as what letters they need to spell their words.

After we cleaned up, the children (along with the teacher’s help) constructed a story about their experience and wrote it in their writing books. The tamariki all agreed - it was a great way to learn our words!
