Term 2 Week Six
Monday 25th May
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We are really focussing on descriptive writing this week and on Thursday we'll be administering a writing sample which will be moderated across classes and teachers. This is to ensure we're marking our writing with more consistency across the school.
Today's writing was based around a picture of a pukeko.
Ask your child to explain what they focussed on with their brainstorm - before they started writing.
Just an advance note: we're planning a visit to the Auckland Museum on Tuesday 23rd June where the topic of interest will be: "Entomology: Examining the living world". More details will follow shortly.
