Karakia Timatanga 

Home Learning – Karakia Timatanga

Practice the ‘Karakia Timatanga’ so you know it off by heart.  This karakia is one that all classes use at Flatbush to start the day.

Home Learning – Karakia Timatanga

This karakia is practiced every day when we have singing in the morning.


This year I will put simple activities that you can practice at home. These activities are part of the learning in our classroom and will give you a chance to practice at home. Underneath each week, the home learning activities will be in a green box.  Once the learning has been successful the colour will change to blue.

Google Meets - Room 14

I have shared some of the things that Room 14 is doing in their google meets over the last couple of weeks. Hope you join in and have a go.

Home Learning TV - TVNZ Duke +1 (504) 

Monday to Friday 9am to 1pm

On a cold and rainy day, it would be perfect to watch the home learning channel. We just started watching episodes of the Middle Maths from TVNZ on Demand. We watched the maths lesson with Fern Webber and Ronnie Taulafo about solving maths problems for different contexts (e.g., hangi pit, umu). It was interesting, I stopped at certain parts to give students a chance to work out the problem and share what they thought.

Massive welcome to McKenzy, MadisynBlue and Mrs Tupou. It was great seeing you. 

 Karakia Timatanga – MadisynBlue

 Checking in – everyone sharing how they are (in alphabetical order).

List of what they are doing at home:

  • Studyladder
  • Playing outside having fun
  • Cleaning (my favourite)
  • Exercising
  • Colouring
  • Prodigy
  • Board games – monopoly, bingo

Flat Bush web page – checking the home learning activities (these will be on our class page as well for each day).

Room 14 web page – looked at Sasha and Tyrell’s home learning. 

Education Perfect – asked students to log on today and change their password today. We will check this at our google meet on Tuesday.

Game on google meet – I Spy – students had to say the room they were in and the beginning of the first sound / letter of something in that room. (Can you imagine all the students talking at once, so adapted it so they had to type their answer in the google meet chat. Much better!!)

Here are snapshots of our google meet today at 10am. Well done to the learners that managed to get on today. You are awesome!

Today De’Andre opened with our karakia and Grace closed with our karakia. Then in alphabetical order of their first names, each student talked about what they had been doing during level 4. We had some students baking, playing outside on the trampoline and skateboard, watching movies, mowing the lawn and using their home learning packs. I can’t wait to see all the photos, so we can put them on our web page. 

They voted on days and time to meet for our google meet. So google meets are on Monday and Tuesday at 10am.  Woo-hoo!!!!Google Meet Instructions

Kia Ora Whanau, here are some google meet instructions. Hopefully it is easy to follow.
