Home Learning

Here is a cool video with some tips on reading with your child.

Room 10 Home Learning for Term 3!

Nau mai, Maliu mai, Ulu tonu mai, Aere mai
and Welcome back to Term 3 in Room 10!

This term our Home Learning will focus around the
Rio Olympics!

Your child gets to choose what they want to focus on.  Each of the tasks below are designed to develop their skills.  For example Task 1 is developing their research and comprehension skills, and Task 2 is asking students to use key words and use their layout skills in a way that makes their word choice easy to read.

One task is to be completed by the end of each week.  Students can record their tasks in their Home Learning Book or they can use the various Google Apps in their student Drive.  

Tasks 1 2 & 3

Tasks 4 5 & 6

Tasks 7 8 & 9

Tasks 10 11 & 12

This term spelling will focus on homophones:  words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.

Please continue helping your child to learn their basic facts and times tables up to 12.  Math tasks will also be coming home to provide another opportunity for your child to practise the strategies they are learning in class.

Home Learning for Term 1 begins week 2 with 10 spelling words.  Each student has an individualised spelling list and their goal is to reach List 7 by the end of the term.  They have been given their words for the entire term so they have access to them whenever they want to practise. 

Remember, they only have to do 10 a week as shown on the sheet.


Your child should read every night.  A novel is preferred, but if time is limited, newspapers, magazines etc are fine.  But reading every day is the way to become a better reading.
