    Kia ora

    Over and above what Phebs has suggested, I think it would be good just to sit one-to-one and give them a book to read to you/with you.  You discussed "formative testing?" (formative assessment?) and this could show you behaviours they may have in reading.  I agree that giving them a National Standards assessment will not give you a good indication of what they are able to do.  Take it slowly, help them transition to their new environment first, meet and talk with their whānau to find out what they are interested in, their whakapapa etc and base a small activity/assessment around that.  

    Do you have access to colleagues from the KKM - it's always good to get the narrative that goes with the ākonga folio etc to get a full picture.  Perhaps collaboration with KKM kaiako will encourage some co-construction of activities/snapshots that you could use to assess.

    Hai whakaarotanga ...

    Ngā mihi

    Heoi anō, me mihi ka tika te kaupapa nei ka tahi.  Ka rua, ki a koe e te whanaun'a, e Rere ... kātahi te whakaaro ran'atira kia whakaritea te rōpū nei hai wāhi whitiwhiti whakaaro.  Koia kai a koe e kare!

    Katoa wōku o te whānau Tamehana, o N'ati Koura, o N'ai Tūhoe ki Ruatoki e mihi atu ana ki te hun'a tau mai ki te whāran'i nei.  Ko Beth taku in'oa, he rin'a tēnei mō Te Marautan'a o Aotearoa.  Kua whai hua ahau i te mahi nei otirā i te noho tahi me te whānau o tēnā kura, o tēnā kura kia wetekina wō rātau whakaaro mō tēnei mea te Marau-ā-Kura.  He nui n'a wawata, n'ā moemoeā, n'ā kōin'o ... hai tā taku pāpā, a Hirini ... 

    "Ko te whare whakahirahira o te iwi e, hei whakairi i ngā tūmanako, i ngā wawata i ngā moemoeā..."

    Kāti, ka whakairihia te kete mihi ki konei e hoa mā ... hai tōna wā ...

    E hoa mā e!  What a tribute to our Māori & Pasifika values ... it's all about whānau!  "...49 other brothers, mātua, whaea ... "  

    Terence ... "staying true to themselves and where they come from" ... cultural identity and it's ability to support and exalt our tamariki!

    Adn the tumuaki is so right ... (and has the best pronunciation of kupu Māori!) why not take the model across the motu ... perhaps it's about buy in, empathy, and understanding of something new??

    Thanks Togi ... I missed my fix last night, but feeling complete now that I've watched this.  To all the 'natives' at Grammar ... kia manawanui!
