Foundation is the ‘foundation’ year for learning. In this year the children will lean how a school is organised and what behaviours are expected in a school setting. The children learn to become increasingly independent in managing their emotions. Academically, the children learn: the alphabet code, that word sentences and pictures hold meaning and that they can express their thoughts by drawing and writing. Maths concepts are based around number – counting then simple processes and applying this learning to time, space and location and visual representation. We participate in school wide programs such as Bucket Fillers, Maths Masters and Specialist areas.
