Literacy

We incorporate the Independent Reader's and Writer's Workshops into our Literacy program across all levels, giving explicit teaching of skills and strategies to each student at their level. A mini-lesson is held to teach the strategy, and then students are given the opportunity to practice the strategy through independent work time and conferencing with the teacher.

 

Numeracy

Hands-on learning is applied across the content strands in Mathematics. The instructional model follows that of literacy: A mini-lesson, followed by independent work with support and concluding with a whole-class reflection on the learning. 

Inquiry

Our approach to inquiry and play-based learning places the child at the centre of the curriculum and teaching strategies; it ensures authentic personalised learning alongside formal, explicit instruction. Senior students work on major projects each Term, being encouraged to research the topic at hand through the lens of their own individual interests.
