In the classroom we work alongside ākonga, to help them make informed choices about their learning; we support them to use their own assessment information to identify their learning gaps. They then attend targeted workshops to address these gaps. The ākonga are able to demonstrate or present their learning in a variety of different ways. We aim to provide opportunities for each individual to build on their passions and interests, while they develop their understanding of themselves as a learner.
Our Seesaw blog (coming soon!) is just as much a voice for our tamariki; a space where they can share their learning with you too. You will find posts from our ākonga that will show you how we encourage student voice in both the creation and reflection on curriculum and learning. Please feel free to comment and ask questions. We’d love for you to join us on our journey.
It is our hope that every learner leaves Kaurilands with the ability to: collaborate with their peers, innovate and create, think critically and creatively about the world around them and demonstrate citizenship in the communities they belong to. We call these our Graduate Learner Dispositions and they are integrated into all aspects of teaching and learning at Kaurilands. You will find posts on the ILP Seesaw blog related to these four focus areas.
We love visitors too so if you’d like to come and see the work we are doing and how our spaces work, you are more than welcome!
