Prep – Year 3

Learning in our Lower Primary classes are focussed around an inclusive and integrated play-based learning program.

Students have greater independence to explore their own learning using a stimulating and creative learning environment. This approach, inspired by Reggio Emilia, is heavily linked to Literacy, Numeracy and Inquiry within the updated Victorian Curriculum and the outcomes of the Victorian Early Years Learning Development Framework (identity, community, wellbeing, learning and communication). This embeds the three strands: guided-play and learning, adult-led learning, child-directed play and learning. Students also participate in the Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) and the Imaginative Play Program facilitated by the Allied Health team of Occupational Therapists and Speech Pathologists.

 

Years 4 -6

Learning in our Upper Primary classes are focussed around Literacy, Numeracy, Inquiry, PBIS and eLearning.

Literacy consists of reading and viewing, writing and speaking and listening. Our students’ individual learning plans (ILP) are linked to the Victorian Curriculum. We value the importance of developing good communication skills to build on the foundations of reading and writing. This is supported by our team of Speech Pathologists.

Numeracy consists of number and algebra, measurement and geometry and statistics and probability. Our students’ individual learning plans (ILP) goals in Mathematics are linked to the Victorian Curriculum. We value the importance of developing visual imagery of number and how to apply these skills practically in the community.
