Ages and Stages of Schooling

Foundation – Grade 2

Students bring to school a wide range of experiences, abilities, needs and interests. They have a natural curiosity about their world. Their desire to make sense of the world provides a platform to plan and review their learning through interactions with others, experimentation, scaffolding (gaining a stronger understanding), explicit teaching, practice and play in the classroom and beyond.

In Foundation – Year 2, priority is given to literacy and numeracy development because these are the foundations on which further learning is built.

Grade 3-6

The Curriculum across Years 3–6 assists students to develop their ability to take positive action for well-being; relate and communicate well with others; pose questions and solve problems; make informed decisions and act responsibly.

Literacy and numeracy are again prioritised across these years of schooling.
