Transition to Year 2
Transition classes run based on the learning approach of investigative ‘play’. In addition, the Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) is also incorporated into their weekly program, to enhance student’s fine and gross motor skills.
The Transition to Year 2 programmes include a strong focus on the development of Literacy and Numeracy in line with the Australian Curriculum. In addition, students undertake daily ReadWriteInc. classes which aim to develop students’ skills in reading, writing, spoken language, vocabulary, grammar and spelling. Each class focuses on other Learning Areas of the Australian Curriculum for their afternoon sessions. These include Science & Technology, Art, Dance & Music and Culture. In addition, three times a week the Early Years join together for Sports sessions, where specific sports skills are taught.
Each class is supported by an assistant teacher(s) to aid the learning and development of all students within the class, with a focus on language and culture.
An Early Years Assembly is held every second Friday, where classes get an opportunity to showcase what they have been learning about. Achievements and school attendance is also awarded. Once a term we have a Family Assembly, where the community is invited to join us and celebrate the children’s learning.
