Reading Together

Mutukaroa

Mutukaroa is one of Newtown School’s home and school learning partnerships. Once your child starts school the teachers will undertake some reading, writing and maths assessments to find out what your child already knows.

We will then arrange a meeting with you (approximately 1 hour) to share the results and help you set learning goals that you can help you child with at home. We will also give you fun resources to help with this.

We will continue to meet with you periodically to keep you up to date with your child’s learning.
