WELCOME TO LZ1

Please bring your stationery to school in week 1.

There will be a number of permission and information notices arriving home over the next few weeks, these can also be accessed on our team blog, which can be found on the Dairy Flat Website http://lz1dfs.blogspot.co.nz/ under Notices. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Home Learning: This week we would like you to engage your child in a discussion about our debate topic “Oceans are irrelevant to me and the part of the world I live in.” Please encourage them to think about this provocative statement!
Digital devices are encouraged and welcome from day two. These are not to be used before school, morning tea, lunch or after school.
Our learning for Term 1:
Explain how living things are suited to their particular habitat and how they respond to environmental changes, both natural and human-induced.
Oceans are irrelevant to me and the part of the world that I live in
