Ngarino enjoys writing, with support from Bev. Sometimes she writes with the class and sometimes she likes to choose the topic. Here are 2 stories she has written in her book.

Ngarino likes My Little Pony and Twilight Sparkle.

Ngarino chose to write about horses. 

 Ngarino uses her excellent knowledge of the alphabet sounds and her alternative pencil to help her write. Her next step is to try to think about the sound first and to try to write it without looking at the cards. 

Duffy Certificate - Week 6.

Ngarino got a certificate at assembly for being a Maths Superstar. She is so focussed and on task with her maths. We are very proud of her progress and her independence. Tino Pai Ngarino!


Ngarino has been enjoying her Maths learning. She is working in a group and also works independently on Maths Buddy and Prototec basic facts on her I pad.

Here is a video of Ngarino using Maths Buddy. She uses the speaker tool to listen to the question.

Ngarino uses material to help her answer her Basic Facts questions on Prototec. She is working on adding and subtracting sums to 5. She is starting to recognise some sums and answer them without using her counters. 

Here is a snapshot of her finished 

Garden to Table

We have started Gardent to Table again for 2018. Ngarino loves taking part in this programme. She enjoys cooking and working in the kitchen. She listens carefully to instructions and loves to help. Ngarino isn't always very keen on eating the food we cook. Too many vegetables. :-)


Welcome back to 2018. 
Ngarino has made a great start to the year in Year 4, Team Awa.
