Students bring to school a wide range of experiences, abilities, needs and interests. In year 1 and 2 they learn to listen to, read, view, speak, write, create and reflect on increasingly complex and sophisticated texts, across a growing range of contexts with accuracy, fluency and purpose. They develop numeracy capabilities and become more confident as users, investigators and communicators of mathematics. They are given opportunities to investigate HASS through inquiry-based learning. They develop computational thinking and build confidence to use digital systems through the use of Chromebooks. Students partake in activities which include the Arts, PE, Japanese and STEM. Across all curriculum areas, students are encouraged to develop their critical thinking and reflective skills.
