Year 1 and 2

In Years 1/2 our school has double classrooms facilitating team teaching and enhanced collaboration across classes, enabling the teachers to work closely with students to develop and implement programs that challenge each individual student. We provide an environment where we facilitate exciting, enriching activities that foster students’ teamwork as well as their individual talents and strengths.


Supporting the Victorian Curriculum, the literacy focus is on reading, writing, speaking and listening with comprehension strategies taught explicitly through our reading program.

Students participate in whole class reading, independent reading and small group reading sessions.

Writing sessions begin with a whole class focus led by the teacher. Students learn how to write various genres and how to apply the 6+1 Traits of writing. Word study is a key part of our writing development and is focused on letter patterns and sounds, as well as commonly used word lists and personal words.

Students are also given various opportunities to give formal presentations, share ideas and opinions.


Open-ended tasks and problem solving activities, with a real-life application, form an integral part of the numeracy program in Years 1/2. Interactive Technologies are used to access exciting curriculum ideas from all over the world, making maths interesting and above all, fun!

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
