Tēnā koutou e te whānau, he mihi māhana tēnei ki a koutou.

These are simple activities that will support your child's learning no matter what. By routinely repeating these over and over again these key learning focuses will help embed the vital skills that will seriously assist your child's academic progress.

Options and ways to support your child's Learning From Home...

  • Read and sing through the Māori alphabet He Waiata Arapū until your child has instant recognition of all letters.

  • Read and sing through the Māori consonant-vowel blend chart Ngā Kūoro. Your child needs this skill to sound out words when reading and writing.

  • Help your child to learn how to write their name, for obvious reasons but also they need to be able to do this for some of their log on's.

  • Watch Te Waiata Pū repeatedly and set aside some time to practice letter writing .

  • Collect items from nature and make sets of numbers 1 to 10. Make some number cards and match the number to each set.

  • Read, read and read some more, preferably pukapuka Māori!

  • Kori tīnana - If you can, get lots of fresh air and some exercise whenever you can.

  • Some general rauemi for your convenience, kupu to name your whare with and for practicing basic skills via the Junior Mahi Kainga Pack below,
