Hi From Mrs Twomey - The new teacher in Room 2!

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Ko Ruahine te maunga.
Ko Manawatu te awa.
Ko Endeavour te waka.
Ko Ngati Pakeha te iwi.
Ko Te Kupenga o te Mautauranga te marae.
Ko Jerald taku hoa tane.
Ko Sam raua ko Jessica oku tamariki.
Ko Bailey raua ko Hariata oku mokopuna.
Te taha o taku hoa tane.
Ko Ngati Raukawa raua ko Ngati Kahungungu ona iwi.
Ko Ngati Manomano tana hapu.
Ko Taumata o te Ra tana marae.
No Papaoeia ahau.
Ko Clair Twomey ahau.

Just a quick note to introduce myself as I will be your child’s teacher for the rest of the year. We have moved back to the Manawatu  as my husband has left the army  and moved back into civilian life. Until moving here I was the DP at Naenae Intermediate in Lower Hutt.

I was born and bred in Palmerston and my husband’s family are from Whanganui so it will be good to be back closer to family and friends. In our family, we have 2 adult children, Sam and Jessica, Sams partner Amy and 2 grandchildren, Sophia and Bailey, who will be remaining in Upper Hutt. We have bought a house in  Feilding and are looking forward to this new chapter in our lives.

I have taught in a number of schools in Whanganui, Waiouru, Upper Hutt and Lower Hutt over my teaching career. These have been a mix of primary and intermediate and as a result of this, I have taught at all levels at some point during this time.

I am looking forward to working with your children and meeting you all in the coming weeks.  

Yours sincerely

Clair Twomey

Noho Marae

Last week, Te Wao Nui o Tane had their Noho Marae at Rangitane Marae. It was awesome to see so many Room 2 children getting involved with all of the activities. There were several rotations that the children were apart of and this included Maori games, nutrition and food prep for a hangi, sketching of Maori carvings, rakau sticks, weaving and a traditional Maori board game. It was an awesome opportunity for the children to learn more about Maori tikanga as well as the culture. This was a very valuable experience for the children which I'm sure they will remember for many years to come.

We would also like to send out a BIG thank you to all the parents who came down to help with either the activities, the food prep or both. We really appreciate all your hard work!

Hula Hoop Creative Dance
We explored a variety of movements both frozen and with movement using a prop (hula hoop)
In the beginning we made frozen shapes using our bodies in a variety of different ways and levels.  Then we experimented with movement in and around our hula hoop, creating different ways to travel through, around or over it. Finally we combined both frozen images and movement together to create a partner dance.
Look at all the fun we had working together and creating our dances.
