Years 3 to 6
At St Monica’s we strive to provide educational excellence through high quality teaching and learning that stimulates curiosity and promotes further investigation.
We set high expectations for student achievement and behaviour, and by communicating clear learning intentions and success criteria our children develop an understanding of what is expected to achieve success.
In the middle primary years (Year 3 and 4), there is a strong focus on furthering developing our students’ literacy and numeracy skills. We aim to ensure that all students are engaged and feel successful in their learning.
Our upper primary students (Year 5 and 6) build upon the foundations established in our lower and middle primary years. Students are encouraged to become more independent with a focus to take on an active role in their learning process. They are given increased responsibility for managing and organising their learning and continue to develop independent work habits. Students also develop their ability to work collaboratively in groups through planned and meaningful activities.
Our Year 3 to 6 students engage in the Australian Curriculum through active learning, problem solving, questioning and cooperative tasks. The Australian Curriculum is designed to develop successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. It is presented as a progression of learning from Foundation - Year 10 that makes clear to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is to be taught, and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school.
