Learning Partnership

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 your child's level.
  • 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 basic facts and other number knowledge skills.
