Home Learning





Term 4  2019
Homework Bingo and a Home Learning Slide presentation are in your child’s google doc Homework folder. You may complete digitally or on paper copy.


Please see the list below for the WEEKLY home learning expectations.
  • Complete 1 box on the Homework Bingo sheet.  Make sure it is signed and dated by an adult.
  • Mathletics practise. Parent to sign off (in one of the boxes provided ) that practise has been done.
  • 15 mins of reading daily. Fill in the Reading log to show what you have read and have it signed by an adult. 
In order to be eligible for the homework reward at the end of the term the students need to have completed and handed in 7 of the possible 9 weeks of allocated homework. This does not mean that a homework 'binge' a few weeks before the end of the term will count. One of the key competencies in our National School Curriculum is 'managing self'. Completing and remembering to hand Homework in on the correct day provides an ideal practice ground for this. 
So to avoid disappointment at the end of term please support (don't do it for them) your child to return their homework in EACH week to be checked off. If your child goes to extra tuition after school count this as 'homework' for that day and make a note in your child's homework folder so that we know each week.

 All notices/permission slips will also be emailed, posted on the blog and sent home as a paper copy. If you have a problem printing a permission slip  (in order to sign and return them) then please notify your child's homeroom teacher as required and a hard copy of the necessary letters will be sent home.


We very much appreciate the student, teacher, and whanau learning partnership.

So to avoid disappointment at the end of term please support (don't do it for them) your child to return their homework in EACH week to be checked off. If your child goes to extra tuition after school count this as 'homework' for that day and make a note in your child's homework folder so that we know each week.

 All notices/permission slips will also be posted on the blog. If you have a problem printing a permission slip      (in order to sign and return them) then please notify your child's homeroom teacher as required and a hard copy of the necessary letters will be sent home.

TERM 2
Homework 
This term our homework will be connected to our learning in the area of financial literacy. We will be using the award winning program Banqer; a New Zealand developed program for students to 'get curious, creative, and ultimately, confident with money'

We will be working together to develop and reward independent learning practices throughout the term. Independent learners who complete reading, spelling, Lexia, basic facts practice, Mathletics and Khan academy learning will earn financial rewards that will help them increase their financial literacy and reap the rewards that such literacy can provide.
