Our Literacy Loops enable all students to participate in guided reading, shared reading, independent reading, writing about reading, and word work in our daily Literacy Block.
This is a whole school agreement so that teachers can hear every student read every day. This is vital to ensure that students are developing their reading comprehension skills as well as their decoding skills.
We use Jolly Phonics as our synthetic phonics program, and strengthen this with other Jolly Learning resources including Jolly Grammar. Decodable readers are sent home with our JP students so that they are given the chance to strengthen their phonics at home.
Assessment across Literacy includes ongoing assessment of reading, phonics check, PAT reading, spelling and vocabulary, moderating writings samples and NAPLAN testing in years 3, 5 and 7. Our small class sizes and intensive SSO support enable students to receive extra support to reach their full potential and constantly challenge themselves.
Our whole school Numeracy Agreement has been developed throughout 2017 and 2018 to ensure that there is consistency in expectations and pedagogy in the teaching of mathematics.
Our Whole School Numeracy Agreement is enacted to ensure all learners are provided with an engaging, differentiated, problem rich learning experience that fosters student resilience, creating powerful learners.
Assessment across Mathematics includes ongoing assessment, PAT mathematics annually, moderation of student portfolios and NAPLAN testing in years 3, 5 and 7. Again, our small class sizes and SSO support enable students to receive a rich learning experience with opportunities to support and challenge themselves every day.
