Language is fundamental to learning, communicating and thinking. At Mount Rogers, teachers use the Australian Curriculum for English to plan for the explicit teaching of reading, writing, speaking, listening and viewing. The Australian Curriculum is organised using the strands of Language, Literature and Literacy and provides guidance on the development of knowledge, understanding and skills from Kindergarten to Year 10.
Teachers use a range of resources to plan experiences that cater for students at all levels.
At Mount Rogers Primary School there is a strong focus on catering for the individual needs of students. The school believes in the importance of home reading at all year levels and encourages all students to be reading regularly at home. We appreciate our volunteers who listen to students read and help them change their home reading books. New volunteers are always welcome. Please contact the front office for more information.
Teachers are using the Australian Curriculum for Mathematics as the basis for planning learning experiences. We believe in the importance of mental computation and problem solving and provide opportunities for students to engage in solving real world problems. At Mount Rogers we believe in the importance of a solid understanding of number and group students according to their needs when teaching this aspect of numeracy. Numeracy lessons often include hands-on materials and the application of maths concepts to real world problems.
