Overview of Curriculum Learning Term 2, 2024

Our key concept for Term 2 is Kaitiakitanga - Guardianship; Connected by the Stars. The overall purpose and focus is for students to know and understand the nature of science, that we are all scientists, how science has changed over time, and to learn that science is about observation, investigation, and experimentation - in line with our NPS qualities of Together, Wonder, Discover, Share. Our key curriculum areas this term are Science (planet earth and beyond) and Social Sciences. We will also be focusing on the performing arts, and our tamariki will be enjoying lessons during weeks 3 and 4 with Dance Curriculum. 

We will also continue with our ongoing reading, writing, and mathematics programmes.
