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.
