Speeches and Poetry Recital

Hi Parents,

Apologies for not getting this information on the blog sooner. I hope you all received the notices about speeches and the poetry recital sent home last week and in Week 9 of last term.

This year the Year 2s will be participating the Kiwi and Pukeko Team Poetry Recital. This will be for Years 0-2. The Year 3s will be participating in the Pukeko and Tui Team Speech Competition.

Please note the following changes:
As we felt a little bit rushed with speeches and poetry recitations, we have now extended both dates by two weeks.

Year 3 Speeches - Week 6
Year 2 Poetry Recital - Week 8

Year 3s - once you have written your speech at home (as many of you already have) please bring a copy into school. We will begin practising these from next week.

Year 2s - we have a copy of your poem at school and you should also have a copy at home. If you have misplaced your copy and would like another, please just let me know. We will also begin practising at school next week.


  1. In this tree lives a family of gnomes. They are magical. They live in the spooky dark woods and use the mushrooms from near the tree house for soup. There are 20 children, 2 babies, and 2 parents. The children collect the magical mushrooms for their Mum and Dad. The gnome family has 10 pets, 4 rabbits, 2 birds, 2 squirrels, and 2 mice. The gnomes are happy with their home, they think it's the perfect place to live. By Keira

    1. Well done Keira! We loved reading your story in class this morning.

  2. This is a good reminder that I need to get Elisa to practice her speech. I know she is excited to share her topic.
