Home Learning

Welcome to our growing Antonio Home Learning Page.

This is being developed as the space for resources to support students and parents engaging in home learning.  

Your child's teacher will be the primary source for their home learning program.  The ideas and resources on this page can provide extra opportunities for fun and interesting learning activities in addition to the teacher's targeted program for your child.

We are going to be adding further resources to this page over time.  You are invited to complete the short survey at the bottom of this page to help us improve the resources here.

Microsoft Teams for video conferencing

Your children will be able to engage face to face with their teachers using Microsoft Teams for daily check ins and for exploring new concepts.
