Team 6 Rangatiratanga Term 3 Newsletter

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Intermediate School Enrolment

Welcome back to Term 3, a scary thought that we are already more than halfway through the school year. Just a couple of things to bring to your notice.

Term 3 is traditionally the time to enroll your child at an intermediate school. To this end, Year 6 students will be visiting Northcross on Thursday 12 August, after which they will bring home an enrolment and information pack. You are welcome to accompany us on the 12th.

Even if your child is not going to attend Northcross, we take them with us to give them a taste of what intermediate school life is about. If your child is intending to attend a different intermediate school, you will need to phone that school directly to find out about the school’s open day and enrolment information.

Northcross Intermediate School Open Day/Night for parent information is Wednesday 18 August at 6.00pm. Your child is required to be at the enrolment interview.

Classroom Programme

The focus for our Inquiry this term is around the research of an artist – their life and work- culminating in the construction of a piece of art inspired by their artist of choice.

The beginning of the term continues the development of Multiplication and Division and Fractions/Proportions/Ratios knowledge and strategies in maths. Students who have an excellent instant recall of these times tables find the learning and application of strategies easier. In the measurement – angles, rays, shapes, nets, drawings and models, along with symmetry, rotation and tessellation.

Art Festival

This is going to be held in Week 9, the 21, 22 and 23 September. More information will be given closer to the time.
