Kura Tēina is all about connecting with your child! We strive on working on transitioning your child from early childhood learning into ‘big school’ where the learning becomes more formal. This can be a big change for not only the child, but the whānau too.
What will you see in our classes? A print rich room that values the children’s mahi; Lots of activities and equipment that help your child express themselves and support hands-on learning; A strong focus on Structured Literacy and Maths; Passionate kaiāko and kaiāwhina that show up each day to facilitate your child in their social, emotional and academic learning.
What will you hear in our classes? Laughter, learning conversations, singing, music and waiata, questioning and wonderings, connections being made; child to adult, and child to child.
What will you feel in our classes? Supported, connected, valued, heard, liked, loved, special and most of all… a sense of belonging.
Our main focus and theme for this year is: HONONGA - CONNECTIONS. We will explore how we are connected to our wider community and local area. Throughout the year, we will have a focus on integrating our inquiry focus to our classroom learning. By doing this, we are able to grow a better understanding and make more connections with our students.
We have five Kaiako in our syndicate, who are all enthusiastic, supportive and provide knowledge, empathy and learning for your tamaiti. Additional supporting programmes are completed alongside the classroom learning to promote success in all learning areas.
We are looking forward to building strong partnerships with our tamariki and their whānau. We have an open door policy and we welcome any questions, concerns or just a catch-up.
Feel free to pop in anytime.
