Learning From home

... Learnnig Platform Spotlight ...

Put your hand up if you think reading is important for your learning progress!

We know that reading may not be everyone's favourite subject. But I have a website for you that makes reading A TONNE OF FUN!


EPIC! is a fantastic way to take some to take a break and read some new, fun, engaging books! Take time to yourself, or sit down with a family member!

EPIC! has so many AWESOME activities to offer... COMICS, VIDEOS, AUDIOBOOKS, QUIZZES on a wide range of literature! Think of a topic and it's probably on there!

Better yet, we can earn BADGES for the number of books we finish and hours we spend reading! Click on the link here and let's see how many badges we can collect on our Readerpillar!!

Great work Room 13!

Today we have gained our very first badge! We have read 25 books so far!

Well done to Aarna, Ava, Gugu, Noah, Kaylee, Tyler H, Caitlin, Jadyn, Harley and Jujhar who have logged on and given it a go!

Thursday - Catch up Email


Kia Ora Room 13,

Just a reminder to check your emails today. This morning I sent everyone a check in email.

There are some reminders about online expectations - 'recommended learning activities' and 'could do activities'.

Please make sure you remember to take pictures of your work so I can share them on our awesome Padlet page!

If you haven't seen this yet, scroll down and check out what your classmates have been doing to keep busy this week.

Enjoy your weekend, I hope to see you soon!

Thank you Ashaz for sharing your Origami bear with us!

Ashaz has also been enjoying some family time.

Way to go Ashaz!


Caitlin has been busy in the kitchen baking 'Caitlin's Crazy Chocolate Cake'. She has also written a descriptive method for how to bake this delicious cake! 

She has also been challenging herself to beat her score on Prototec Maths.

Great work Caitlin!


It has been great to see students getting started with our Online Learning Activities and sharing what they have been getting up to!

Jadyn has been keeping on track with his basic facts on Prototec! Great work Jadyn!


Mikaele has also been busy labelling the human brain and cooking in the kitchen. I bet we would all love to join Mikaele for dessert with his fresh Apple Pie! YUM! He has even written out the method for us to try at home. I look forward to sharing more fabulous learning from our classmates!

Some of this information is also available on our class webpages.   We understand that everyone's situation during alert level 3 looks different,  so we encourage you to do what is manageable for your whaanau.  We would love to have learning shared with us during school hours: photos, writing etc. If you are happy for us to update our class pages as a forum of sharing please let us know.

Level 3 Lockdown Announcement

Good Morning Room 13, you will be aware by now that as of 11:59pm last night we moved into alert Level 3 for the Auckland Region and that Pokeno is included in the Auckland Region this time around. We are hoping this Level 3 will only last the three days, however we can’t be too sure. In saying that, the Kea Whaanau teachers are working hard to set up some online learning platforms that we can use, if we need to.  Our class pages will be updated regularly with information and activities for you and your family to participate in, so keep an eye out on your class web page for updates and please stay safe. 

Kia Kaha!
