Literacy and Numeracy
Our explicit instruction in Literacy and Numeracy form the foundation of our teaching and learning. The teaching and learning each day allows for children to be engaged and take ownership of their learning. In Literacy, the focus has been developing phonological awareness and increasing alphabetic and letter–sound knowledge, Word building and Reading. In Numeracy, we intentionally engage children in exploring mathematical ideas, relationships and language in planned learning experiences on a daily basis.
Many of the activities are theme based, sometimes these themes are planned in advance and other times they are influenced by the children. We provide constant adventure for exploration and wonder. We have introduced Investigations through the implementation of the Walker Learning approach.
Our Kindergarten teaching and learning strategies also include Whole Brain Learning, Positive behaviours, Learning through play and Station Rotation activity time. Each day the children enjoy a diverse range of play and real-life learning experiences that are set up in class which include, Art and Craft, Role Play, Shopping, Dress Up , Pet Shop, Vet Centre, Zoo, Wild Animals, Animal Farm and The Australian Outback.
