Spiritual Development

Every term, we explore a theme that runs across the entire school. The children learn Bible stories, verses and virtues relating to the theme and this develops their spiritual growth. Each day begins with devotion, and we have a theme and hymn to learn and sing for each week. As well, a Bible assembly every Wednesday that explores the whole school theme.

Each day, every class has a class leader who leads in prayer for beginning and end of day and as well for the different mealtimes.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Children learn to be self-confident, take an interest in the environment and become self-reliant. They learn and know what their needs are, how to express their needs appropriately and tell the difference between right and wrong.

Communication, Language and Literacy

Children learn to communicate confidently and clearly and listening to others in conversation. They engage in stories, songs and poems and retell events from stories and their experiences.

Physical Development

Children learn to communicate confidently and clearly and listening to others in conversation. They engage in stories, songs and poems and retell events from stories and their experiences.

Mathematics

Children learn to develop an understanding of numbers through stories, songs, games and imaginative play. They become comfortable with numbers and calculations and are aware of shapes, space and measures.

Literacy

Children are given opportunities to hear and say initial sounds, link them to the alphabet and begin to read and write. Through listening to others reading, they learn to read and write themselves. They have access to a wide range of reading materials such as books, poems and other written materials to ignite their interest.

Expressive Arts and Design

This involves supporting children to explore colours and shapes and play with a wide range of media and materials. The children have opportunities to share their thoughts, ideas, and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role play, design and technology.

Understanding of the World

This involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and community through opportunities to observe, explore and find out about people, places, technology and the environment. Children explore and find out about the world around them, asking questions about it. They also know about everyday technology and learn what its uses are.
