In accord with the National curriculum (ACARA) document, ‘The English curriculum is built around the three interrelated strands of language, literature and literacy. Teaching and learning programs should balance and integrate all three strands. Together, the three strands focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. Learning in English builds on concepts, skills and processes developed in earlier years, and teachers will develop and strengthen these as needed.’
In addition, as an accredited IB school we have also adopted the approach of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) which ‘presents schools with a comprehensive plan for high quality, international education.
It provides schools with a curriculum framework of essential elements — the knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action that young students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future…The curriculum is transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas.’
