Performance at Finlayson Park School Term 1 2021.

 Performance at Finlayson Park School.

Over the last 4 weeks Room 12 have been working extremely hard at mastering our dance item for the Beatz of Mangere. Unfortunately due to the weather forecast the Beatz of Mangere was postponed until term 4 2021. Our Principal Whaea Nardi knew that all of the children had been working really hard on the item and wanted us to have an audience to perform to. We went out to Finlayson Park School and and shared with them "The evolution of dance" Our Children did an amazing job. We were so proud of them.

 Hello, Kia Ora, Kia Orana, Talofa Lava, Taloha Ni, Bula, Ni Hau, Namaste, Malo e Lelei, Fakalofa, Lahi Atu, Vinaka, Hola, Sagutom, Konichiwa.


Kia ora, my name is Whaea T, and I am so excited to be your child's teacher for 2021 in Room 12. This will be my third year teaching at Jean Batten.  I enjoy crafting, dancing and watching my children play their sports. 


Our theme this year is “We are storytellers”. In term 1 our focus is “Korere Mai” Tell us about you. Your child will be coming home with questions about their family and how they got their name. Please make time to have these conversations with your child so they can share their story with their class. 

It’s going to be a great year full of new friends and new discoveries. Let's make it an incredible year.

In our classroom.

You have unique talents and strengths and I can't wait for you to share them with your classmates. You will bring so much to our class and I am looking forward to learning more about you!

Things to remember each day.

  • Water bottle (this can be refilled from the classroom tap)

  • A sunhat

Book bag. 

Once these start coming home please ensure that they come to school each day.

The Greedy cat show.

Welcome back to school everyone. Term 4 has started with a hiss and a roar. This week we have been reading all of the amazing Greedy cat stories by Joy Cowley. The icing on the cake though for us today was attending a live stage show of Greedy cat. We had a great time laughing at all of the mischevous things that Greedy cat got up to.
