Grade 5-6

The Grade Five and Six learning area consists of a cluster of five classrooms. Each classroom is easily accessible to enable collaborative teaching and learning, and to promote our leadership community.

The teaching staff work with a coach each week, to plan for the student's learning experiences. Teachers gather data from students in order to plan for individual learning needs.

The students in the senior area use the iPad as a tool to showcase their learning in individual, partner and group activities. A variety of other devices are also available to support the children in their learning.
