Little Achievers

Little Achievers will begin in Term 4 2019

Starts on March 8th 2019 from 9.15am until 10am

 

Our Little Achievers programme was initiated to meet the request of the school community.

This initiative is for 4 1/2  to 5 year olds ready to transition into school.

The programme runs every Friday in Room 4. 

Mrs Barry, Mrs Ditchfield, Mrs Watt and Ms Keyes work with the children to build on early Literacy and Numeracy skills through hands on learning.

The children have the opportunity to visit the NE room for 45 minutes, 2x a term, once a term participate in Kapa Haka and once a term visit the library.  When the children start school they have developed friendships with other children who are starting school around the same time.

When the children start school the information about their strengths and next step learning is passed onto the classroom teacher who then plans programmes to meet their needs from day 1.  The children have an adult they know well and starting school is less stressful.

As a school we have tracked all children who have been through Little Achievers and the data is clearly evident that the children have a flying start to their schooling experience and 98% of students who have attended Little Achievers is AT or ABOVE as they move through school.

If you are interested in your child attending,  please either contact the office or meet us in Room 4 on Friday morning at 9am.
