Covid-19 Update

Fri Aug 20 06:22pm

Afternoon everyone,

This afternoon we learnt that the Covid-19 alert level 4 lockdown will continue to at least Tuesday 24 August.
This means that our school will remain closed for at least Monday and Tuesday of next week, with more information to come our early in the week.

The staff met today to discuss sending out home learning packs. These will be created on Monday morning ready for distribution in the afternoon. We will have a contactless system for this distribution which we will share Monday morning. We are planning for home learning but hoping we will be back in our classrooms before to long.

Check out the school Facebook page to see what we are all looking like…

Stay home, stay safe everyone and be kind. We have got this 🙂

Some Links for learning 🙂

Wed Aug 18 12:10pm

Morning everyone, I hope that day 1 of this lockdown has started well.
The teachers have been working away this morning sending out links for some reading, writing and maths activities, if you choose to complete some work over the next few days. These links were sent to you via Seesaw… so have a look in your app. If you don’t have Seesaw please message the school and I can sort a QR code for you to get connected.
There is no expectation that you complete any work… just enjoy spending time with your loved ones instead.

Some general links
ICT Activities (Maths and Literacy Activities)
Jump Jam Fitness (Witch Dr was one of my favourites when I was in the classroom)
Pip and Harold You Tube (Pip and Harold from the Life Education Truck)
Go Noodle Fitnes
And just a reminder the school is closed during level 4 and this includes the school grounds and playgrounds.
Stay home, stay safe everyone and be kind. We have got this 🙂

Covid-19 – Level 4 Lockdown

Tue Aug 17 08:13pm

Hi Everyone – As you would have heard tonight, Aotearoa New Zealand is going into Lock Down Level 4. This means that we all must stay at home. Apart from Auckland we will be in lockdown for 3 days. This means that school is closed for the rest of the week. School is closed as of 11.59 tonight for 3 days. Please stay home, if you out for a walk keep 2m distance, wear a mask, no gathering and stay in your bubble.

Staff have not had time to prepare for at home learning and teachers may not have taken things home with them today, so I will share some useful apps that you can use over the next few days.

We have been here before. We know what to do. Please stay home, be safe and be kind. We have got this 🙂

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
