Providing a strong foundation for life at Plenty Campus
Students are provided with a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy that will help them throughout their education and their life.
Teachers facilitate innovative and engaging literacy programs where children learn to use and enjoy language as a powerful way of communicating. Students are explicitly taught the skills and strategies for reading, writing and oral language through individual programs and engaging, independent routines.
Spelling, handwriting and grammar are important as children learn the craft of writing. Developing each child's skills, strategies and confidence in each area of language is a focus for teaching.
Teachers place an emphasis on developing in children a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics. They instil in students an understanding of what it means to work mathematically, using examples relevant to real life situations. They utilise a wide range of teaching styles to develop thinking, reasoning, problem solving and communication skills so students genuinely understand mathematics.
Technology is used effectively throughout the primary years, to enhance teaching and learning programs. An iPad program commences in Year 5.
There is close monitoring of each child’s development to ensure progress is taking place. Consistent reporting through the primary years, with parents able to view evidence of their child's progress, is a priority.
