Foundation is the ‘foundation’ year for learning. In this year the students will learn how a school is organised and what behaviours are expected in a school setting. The students learn to become increasingly independent in managing their emotions. Academically, the students 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, Math Masters and Specialist areas.
Please don’t hesitate to come see any of our Foundation teachers with queries and questions, we are all very happy to answer them.
