Learning is a partnership between the children, parents/whanau and the classroom teacher.
We know that the silver bullet for the success of a child is what happens in the home.
At Edendale Primary School our home based individualised learning partnership work focuses around three main areas.
- Reading: We expect our children to be learning words and reading each week night. Reading mileage is vital for progress in reading so a small portion each day helps keep children progressing and reading fit.
- Spelling: We have established a comprehensive spelling programme that equips our children with the important words that they need to know to function successfully in a modern world. This programme is paced at the child's speed.
- Basic Facts: We aim to ensure that all our pupils leave our school with instant recall of the essential basic facts. We have established a personalised programme that ensures children work through mastery of their basic facts
Pre-school Preparation Programme
We run a pre-school parent meeting once per term, normally in Week 3, from 2pm to 3pm for those parents of children who have turned 4 years. Check with our office to ensure you are on our invitation list. Listed below are the topics that are covered. This is a great opportunity for you to see how to help partner our school with your child's learning.
