Term 2, Week 5

Talofa lava, Kia Ora, Malo e lelei,

welcome to week 5 of Term 2. I hope you are all doing well. Today we will hear whether we will move into Level 2 and what that means for school. We will keep you all up to date with what decisions are being made.

Here are the learning activities for this week.



Listen to this story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3j1KS7rXyjU and answer the questions below:

1. What were all the things Crispen the dragon breathed (instead of fire)?
2. Why did Crispen feel out of place and why did he go to the cave to hide?
3. What did you notice about all the different things Crispen breathed?
4. How does the story end?


Create another part of the story about the "Not so typical dragon" and write about what Crispen would breathe.

For example: Crispen was playing on the field with his friends, when Barry accidentally kicked the ball into the river. Crispen felt a tickling in his tummy. He felt something bouncing in his stomach. He opened his mouth, but fire did not come out. Out came soccer balls.

Remember to send photos to Miss Toder via facebook messenger or via email ines@netherby.school.nz. I would love to see the work you're doing. 

Have a great week everyone :) and I will stay in touch regarding schooling at Level 2.

Week 2, Term 2

Kia Ora everyone,

weeks 2 of term 2 has started. I hope you have all received your learning packs and that you are enjoying the activities in them :)

I am excited to hear about all the wonderful things you have been doing at home. Some of you have even sent me photos :) I would love to see the work you have been doing, so of you would like you can email me photos of your learning, for example a photo of your writing.

This week I would love to see a photo of a piece of artwork you have made, a photo of writing you have been doing and a maths problem you have solved. Have a go at this one:

Miss Toder was counting the cows on the paddock behind her house. She saw 37 cows in the morning. In the afternoon there were only 13 cows left. How may cows were taken to the milking shed?


Blake and Ella have been practicing their origami skills. Blake made 7 rockets and 2 cars. Ella made 8 flowers and 3 envelopes. How many pieces of origami did Ella and Blake make altogether?

Send me a photo of how you solved these problems. My email address is todines77@gmail.com
You could also make the spaceship :)

I am looking forward to speaking to you again this week.
