Target Children

With our current professional development and through Teacher Inquiry, teachers are expected to have target groups of children in 2015. If your child has been selected as part of a target group this is a good and positive thing.

We do ask for you to fill in any questionnaire in a timely manner and support your child with any homework, or through attending meetings to help teachers gather information to help your child learn better.

This year children will be part of reading, writing and maths targets. The teacher inquiry means teacher’s and staff inquire into their practice and your child’s learning needs to find the best ways in which to teach your child. That is a good thing and certainly is beneficial to your child, and teacher’s teaching practice.

Tip For Parents

Give your child every opportunity to read to you daily. Ten minutes of reading five times a week = 50 minutes of reading time a week.

If you did this for a minimum of 35 weeks a year we have your child engaging in text for 29 hours extra every year! That 29 hours helps your child read better because they do more miles, are exposed to many words, and importantly are exposed to many ideas through the text.

It is a win - win for all concerned!
