We believe that learning happens all the time in all places. We know that families are busy outside of school hours and do not want to burden you with reems of 'homework'. We also want learners to be able to practice what they are learning at school, and share their learning with you. 

Our classroom teachers have provided these Home Learning Task Boards that can be used to support our learners at home. There is no requirement for the work to be completed and the tasks do not need to be shown to teachers / kaiako. The Task Boards will be updated termly.

Home Learning Task Boards 

Home Learning Tasks Boards are created by teachers for the ākonga / learners in their year groups. These are sent out via Hero and for our senior learners, also posted on their Google classrooms. 

Home learning is not checked or marked by teachers - However it does provide further learning opportunities for children. Please encourage your child to do what interests them.

Choice Boards are updated termly.
