Home Learning

Welcome to the Mānuka Primary Home Learning page.

Here you will find a range of links to support your child's learning at home. Home learning is practice - it should support your child's current level and not be too hard or too easy. Home learning should be completed independently and your child should be experiencing a relatively high level of success. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding Home Learning please see your child's class teacher.

A guideline for average time spent daily on home learning tasks would be:

  • Year 0-2 10-15 mins

  • Year 3-4 15-20 mins

  • Year 5-6 20-30 mins
