Lesson plans and curriculum material for teachers

On this page you will find information to support the teacher-led lessons on Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV. Each has a description of the lesson goal, success criteria, the resources and activities used to support the learning.

You may wish to use the plans as part of your own planning. You could:

  • instruct learners to watch lessons that relate to your local curriculum so that you can build on this learning in class
  • build your week's learning in a way that integrates the learning from the lessons, so that the lessons can be used for learners to extend their learning
  • hold on to the documents as resources to help curriculum planning in the future.

Click on the Description to access the Lesson Plan for the segment where available.

These lesson plans are teachers' working documents. There may be minor grammatical or other errors, but they are shared in the spirit of support and collaboration.

Note that not all of the lessons and programmes on Home Learning | Papa Kāinga are included.

Friday's schedule includes some of our presenters' favourite lessons of the week, as well as fun new content to enjoy.

Check the Home Learning | Papa Kāinga TV page for schedules updated daily
