Online learning

If your child can get online – do get the app Seesaw so teachers can share work with your child. If you can’t download Seesaw, these resources might be useful.

 

How to Help at Home

One of the best ways is to speak with them in your home language(s).
Keeping your own language alive is a wonderful treasure and it helps them to learn English more easily.

 

Reading

Ask your child if they have brought a book home to read and listen to them. This will usually be an easy book for them but if for some reason the book is hard, read it with them.

  • Do not cover the pictures. 
  • Let your child try unknown words.
  • before you tell them what it is.
  • Always say well done.
  • Let your teacher know if the reading books are not coming home.
  • Older children can bring home Library books.

 

Maths: NZ Maths Video

Help your child to learn basic facts …these are easy adding and subtraction  (Scan basic facts sheet here)  You can do this in the car…or anywhere.
