TAKE THE TIME Many of you have children involved in winter cultural and sports activities. Our school would like to encourage you to TAKE THE TIME TO SPEND TIME with your child by attending his/her activity. We know that if we make time to do this then we all benefit from it and we also meet other parents and gain new friends. If you can also TAKE THE TIME to talk to your child about his/her day at school on a regular basis this would be very much appreciated by our teachers. We look forward to an exciting and full Term Three with one of the highlights being the NZCT AIMS GAMES from 9 September to 15 September. Our students have worked very hard over Term Two and we are very pleased with their writing progress They all deserve a happy and restful break.

Academic Report “A Three Way Conference” Tuesday 31st July

It is the end of another busy and productive term at Tauranga Intermediate School. Teachers and students have been working hard to make academic gains in Mathematics, Literacy, Science Fair and individual inquiry within their classroom programmes. With this in mind it is a great opportunity to unpack the purpose of our Learning Conferences that take place early next term. The purpose of these Three Way Conferences is to have our teachers, students, parents, family, and whanau in communication about our students learning. Students, parents and the classroom teacher will have 5 min each to talk about where the child is at in relation to National Standards, where they need to get to by the end of the year and the students next steps to achieve these goals. Attendance for our Learning Conferences is COMPULSORY! Please book your conference time online or return the paper copy to your classroom teacher by Wednesday 25th July. The vision of The New Zealand Curriculum is for our young people to be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners. Learning Conferences will: •

Communicte clear, dependable information about progress and achievement, and provides a basis for building a strong partnership between the child, the teacher and the childʼs parents, family and whānau to support learning and improve their academic outcomes.

Provide information about a childʼs learning, progress and achievement that can then be used to support further learning.

A successful three way conference at Tauranga Intermediate will enable: •

all parents, family and whānau: ◦

to understand how their childrenʼs learning is progressing

to become active, involved supporters of their childʼs learning and the school programme

all students to build a strong sense of achievement, self-efficacy, and motivation to engage with future learning

students who would normally ʻswitch offʼ when faced with low achievement to remain motivated and willing to learn, and students who are already disengaged to regain motivation

Roles within the Conference process 1. Tauranga Intermediate and your child's teacher: The role of our school is to support a learning focused relationship between the teacher, the student, and their parents, family and whānau. This should: •

help the student to become increasingly capable of initiating conversations about what is being learnt

provide parents, family and whānau with the information they need

help parents, family and whānau to know how to support childrenʼs learning with the information they receive

2. Parents, families and whānau The role of parents, families and whānau is to support their children to learn. They can do this best if they: •

have clear, good quality information about what their child is learning

use everyday opportunities to interact with their children in ways that support further learning such as:

responding to them as they talk about what they are learning

providing opportunities for learning practice

providing affirmation/praise of what has been learnt and progress made

feel comfortable and confident engaging with their school to find out what is being learnt, where their children are in the learning sequence, what the next steps are, and what they can do to support further learning.

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 31st July.

TAURANGA INTERMEDIATE TEACHER RELEASES SCORCHING YOUNG ADULT NOVEL . . .

Through

Angel’s Eyes

STEVE THEUNISSEN

50 years ago the scourge of racism was stifling the development of millions of children in America. In 1963, a core group of these courageous young people stood up and said, “Enough!” The story of these child marchers imparts vital lessons that the 21st century child desperately needs to learn from courage, resistance to peer pressure, empathy, non-violence and conviction. Through Angel’s Eyes brings the story of the 1963 Alabama child marches to life through the eyes of Angel Dunbar - and in Angel we finally have a role model for our times!
