Te Totara Primary School - Growing and Learning Together


100 Days Smarter

On Friday 21 November most children in the Neptune pod were able to celebrate 100 days at school.  They did a lot of activities around the number 100!






Stop Motion Premieres

Hamilton City Libraries asked us if we would help them promote their new Summer Reading Programme 'Once upon a river...".  Over a couple of lunchtimes their librarians came and taught some of our Year 6 students how to do stop motion animation using the school's iPads.  Everyone really enjoyed the opportunity to learn some fun new skills and the amount of energy and enthusiasm in the room was impressive.  The top four animations were chosen and will be soon featuring on Hamilton City Libraries' website. 






Milky Way 6's Amazing Work

Bailey, Nicci and Lana visited Milky Way 6 this week and were impressed by the work they are doing in there.  Have a look at their report here and feel free to add a comment.



Orion 12's Learning

We are all going to miss Mrs Cathcart, who is jetting off to live in England and finishes at Te Totara on Friday.  Our reporters took the opportunity to find out what she has been teaching her class.  Click here for their report.
