Curriculum - Grades 2018

In 2018 we have three mixed aged classes, P/1, 2/3 and 4/5/6. We cover the Victoria Curriculum and students learn with and from each other in their classrooms with scope for cross class and whole school learning.

This year all students have been given explicit instruction in the teaching of phonics to scaffold their progress in all areas of literacy. We have had a targeted focus on reading. Students can identify a ‘just right’ book and have helped create their own class libraries.

Numeracy has had an emphasis on real life hands on learning. Students have been using open-ended maths games to allow them to learn numeracy concepts at their own level.

Our inquiry topics have covered aspects of themselves as learners; including the stories we tell, and how stories help us understand tour world. Studying the continent of Africa has been a springboard for history, geography and an understanding of the global context we live in.
