 to see you are keeping the cheek up for the medical staff and tricking them and that you are getting a chance to ride a bike!  Willow has jsut learnt to ride one and we went to the Redwood forest in Rotorua 2 wks ago for the holidays - she even rode a little track there - lots of crashes and i think she scared any birds that were in the vicinity with her squeels but she did it...
you can do it too Rory - keep those bugs at bay!
love to Sam and Mum and Dad too
ps was pretty cool to see you in the paper here the other day!

Hi Rory and family,
I'm the new teacher in Room3.  Miss Barr has been telling me lots of great things about you and the class, We will keep you up-to-date with what's going on at school.  Your website is great!  Keep in touch,
Miss Whiting
P.S:  Here is the first newsletter from me

Welcome to term two! I hope you all had a fantastic Easter and enjoyed the holidays. Mine just flew by with moving here to Dargaville and getting ready for school. I’ve just come back from an O.E to the U.K. Before that I was teaching in Dunedin where I graduated from Teachers College so it’s going to be a nice climate change here! My partner and I are looking forward to becoming part of the local community.
This term is going to be action packed with the new topic being New Zealand’s flora and fauna. We will also be studying geometry, descriptive writing and ball skills. Homework will remain the same, with spelling words to be learnt and readers going home every night except for Friday. Library day will now be Thursday.
I look forward to meeting you all. Feel free to pop into the classroom to check out what we are up to. Have a great week.
Miss Amelia Whiting
