Balancing after school activities, play dates, appointments, independent play, chores, screen time, conversations, work, food, homework, reading, dreaming...?

We don't want home learning to be stressful for anyone. To reduce some of the pressure, you might like to try one of our Whānau Challenges instead. Think about how to report back to your teacher and your class in a fun and interesting way on some of the challenges you take on.
