A big welcome to the Teoteo Learning Space from the teachers Wendy Lindsay, Andy Richmond, Emma Howes and Kay Weeks. In the Teoteo Learning Space we work collaboratively. This means your child has further opportunities to add to all of their Three Kete by…
Character Kete: developing the skills of independence, responsibility, organisation and having a positive attitude towards learning.
Relationships Kete: having opportunities to form many relationships (with their peers and teachers).
Knowledge Kete: managing their learning in a flexible yet structured learning environment. The children will have a variety of opportunities to learn and to share their learning with others.
As teachers, we have experienced the benefits of working collaboratively. We have noted that the children are taking advantage of the many different learning opportunities and the depth of learning is evident. For us as teachers, this has meant that we too are adding to our Three Kete. Rather than working in isolation, we are working together, in a supportive way, to create a holistic and optimum learning environment for your children.
There is a large emphasis placed on Literacy and Mathematics. Our aim (as for all learning areas) is that your child enjoys their learning and therefore uses their skills and knowledge in everyday life. We have exploration days throughout each term and we look forward to seeing the students filling their ‘Three Kete’ (Knowledge, Character and Relationships) over this time. To show our learning, we use the ‘Seesaw Learning Journal App’. This provides the opportunity to be connected with your child and to engage with how they are adding to their Three Kete in Teoteo.
There are so many stimulating activities that are provided each day in Teoteo that allow all of the learners in the space to be actively engaged in learning each day. Here are some photos to share some of the activities:
