Academic Extension Program - Yrs 4/5/6
The Academic Extension Class is designed for students to experience a combination of explicit teaching and Project Based Learning as part of their day. All curriculum areas are covered for each year level, and as well as that, students are involved in regular problem-solving tasks to apply their learning to real-life situations. Essential 21st Century skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking is at the heart of the program. Students are involved in activities that will challenge them to be analytical and to find creative solutions. They learn to work as part of a team and develop confidence in presenting their learning to others. All students in the program still participate in the whole-school, specialist classes and year group activities that students in other Year 4, 5 and 6 classes are involved in.
Students are invited to be a part of this program based on NAPLAN and school testing results as well as Student Reports and specific teach judgements. All students who are invited need to take place in a trial session/day and interview for their place in the class.
