Our Year 5-8's

Our Year 5 to 8's are taught by Anna Williams. Our Senior programme is designed to prepare our students for their future years; whatever that may be. We have high expectations of, and for, our graduating students. 

 

Students are provided with a strong, more traditional model of learning in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Deliberate acts of teaching are regularly used and close attention to the learning progressions, guide curriculum design. Individual timetables allow for self directed learning, promotes ownership of learning, and time management skills. 

 

Daily and weekly expectations, based on their curriculum learning, with clear success criteria and reasons for learning are set. Teacher sessions are designed to scaffold students into new learning, provide opportunities for them to ask questions, and to go over completed work.  The student chooses what to work on during the day when they are not involved in sessions with the teacher. Careful monitoring of progress guides our next steps. 

 

Digital technology is a tool to be used to enhance learning and to maintain our place in the digital technology environment. Students use Google classrooms as part of their daily timetable, but as an additional mode of curriculum delivery.  Work expectations are posted on google classrooms and students share their work with the teacher, families and others in the class.

Other curriculum areas are covered throughout the school year, in more creative and student driven ways, with a focus on taking the learning outside the 4 walls of the classroom.

 

All our classes merge regularly to enable opportunities for a variety friendships to blossom without the restrictions of age, and allowing opportunities for positive peer mentoring and role modelling.
