What is my child learning?

All learning at St. Francis of Assisi is underpinned by the inquiry cycle. This is a constant process where teachers and leaders analyse what they know about your child (from assessments, observations, group sessions etc.) to plan their next steps for learning. Learning is definitely needs-based and carefully planned. Collaboration is recognised as a key factor for learner progress and as a result, much of our curriculum delivery happens in groups.

Understanding Literacy

English is structured around two interconnected strands, each encompassing the oral, written, and visual forms of the language. The strands differentiate between the modes in which students are primarily:

  • Making meaning of ideas or information they receive (Listening, Reading and Viewing);

  • Creating meaning for themselves or others (Speaking, Writing and Presenting).
