Hello Taylor Team and Whānau.

What a start to the year it has been. We've been working to get our students set up with a hybrid learning platform that allows us to share and work with students both at home and in the classroom. Our goal is to have a model that lets us share work simultaneously with students at home or school, and monitor their learning wherever students may be learning from.

We have sent an email to all students in the Taylor Hub. These are invitations to the Taylor 2022 Google Classroom, and the Taylor 2022 Google Drive. The Google Classroom will be used for classroom work, sharing of slideshows and work tailored for the whole class will be posted here.

In Google Drive, there is a folder for each student. This will contain their passwords and usernames to our online learning platforms, the spelling list they are currently working from, activities to work alongside their reading and even handwriting cards if students wish to practise at home.

Many whānau have been asking us about Readers going home. We are working on getting our online PM collection working for all students. This will allow us to share readers and stories aimed at their reading level. These PMs will also be the texts they read in their reading groups at school.

Thank you all for your patience this year. We are so excited about the upcoming year and as a team, we want to make it an awesome year for all our tamariki.

Kind regards

The Taylor Team
