Year 6 Blogs

Kia ora,
Your child has made a wonderful blog at Te Akau ki Papamoa School. Since they are heading off on a new adventure we will be closing their blog down over the next few months. After school finishes they won’t be able to log into their blog, and after a few months the blog will be removed from our server.
If you would like to make a copy of their work, please follow the instructions on this website before the end of the school year: – this will allow you to upload the blog to a new (free) blog that you create and own. Since your child is a minor, this needs to be done by, or with, and adult. It should only take 15 minutes to follow the steps.
Thank you.

Jan Goldie – Author

Wow..we had an extremely motivating visit by the New Zealand famous published author Jan Goldie. She spoke to us all about the writing process, what it means to be an author and introduced us to her published books. Jan’s latest is called Brave’s Journey, and we were hooked after she read an exciting and attention grabbing, part of this.

Jan talked us through a great activity with the pod.. World building. We all created our own worlds, dimensions and atmospheres that we could develop further.IMG_2926 IMG_2927.

Engagement and focus was high! We think we have many budding authors among us!

Thank you Jan, you were inspirational!

Keeping ourselves Safe

Our tamariki are working in groups to help them recognise safe and unsafe situations with confidence.  Please have a chat with your child about some of these scenerios.  This is a really important unit of work, and we feel that our class is gaining alot of insight into keeping themselves safe.
