Amisfield being Awesome!
More great things happening at Amisfield. Our learning support programmes are up and running and students are focused on being their best and keeping on learning!
More great learning going on in classes at Amsifield School. We have had Mrs DeCastro, an RTLIT specialist, in classes modelling to our teachers and students structured literacy approaches to support our students' learning. This has included a focus on handwriting, which research shows is very important for students' fluency in writing and practising handwriting, especially cursive, can activate the same parts of the brain that learning an instrument does!
Very impressed with these writers! Learning how to write a formal letter and their handwriting is improving quickly!
Another great day of learning at Amisfield School. Lots of learning and fun activities taking place in all of the classes this afternoon.
It has been a great start to term one in 2024 with the focus on our school values, Kia pai koe, kia atawhai, kia mau ki te ako - Be my best, be kind and keep learning. Classes are busy setting expectations and routines with the students.
