Fire Fire Fire - 21st Apr 2017

Its fire safety week so during this week the tamariki and kaiako (children and teachers) have been practising what we would do in a fire.

We have been listening to a book and singing a song about what we can do to keep ourselves safe if there is a fire. Some of the children took an immediate interest in this and became very interested in all aspects of FIRE and the fire trucks. We had children walking around talking about things being hot.

The role is called and each child alongside a staff member is encouraged to say yes or some noise to let the teachers know they are there when their name is called. By the end of the week the tamariki had a great understanding of what was expected of them, where our safe place was and what sound to listen to so we could all move to our safe place. Ka Pai everyone!!

FIRE DRILL THIS WEEK 5TH - 9TH MAY


It's fire safety week and the children have been learning about keeping themselves safe when in a fire. The children listened to a book about being fire safe and then listened to a song about what to do.

Some of the children took an immediate interest in this and became very interested in all aspects of FIRE and the fire trucks. We had children walking around talking about things being hot.

We listened as the children began to understand that to get out of a fire safely we need to have an escape plan. Mums and dads you can help us by talking to your children about being safe when there is a fire or when something is hot that they could hurt themselves on.

We have a rally point that we meet at, which is by the slide outside. The role is called and each child alongside a staff member is encouraged to say yes or some noise to let the teachers know they are there when their name is called. By the end of the week the tamariki had a great understanding of what was expected of them, where our safe place was and what sound to listen to so we could all move to our safe place. Ka Pai everyone!!

Our Community - 3rd Dec 2014

As part of our planning our team has been supporting your children as they learn about our wider community and also making important links with the wider community. We have been lucky enough to be given flowers from the Gore District Council garden ladies and then last week we had a visit from the ambulance service.

These people do an amazing amount of work in our community and I approached them to see if they would come and spend some time with your children in a familiar environment. These relationships are such an important way for your children to learn about emergency services and to develop an understanding of the role this service plays in our community.

David and Karen were fantastic giving the children time to come and meet them. It was so relaxed and your children responded so well to this approach. As your children became more comfortable with David and Karen they were invited into the ambulance to have a look around.

We will continue these links with the wider community in other ways so please keep an eye on story park.

Thank you so much to David and Karen for your caring and friendly approach.

Our team are working on having a visit from the fire brigade and the local police which will be so exciting to keep these connections strong
