At Atwell Primary School curriculum planning is undertaken using the Western Australian Curriculum.
The learning program is structured using literacy and numeracy blocks to ensure all content is covered. This year our priority areas are guided reading, writing and the implementation of the concrete, pictorial and abstract model through the use of the Prime Maths text.
Each year level K-6 operates as a ‘team’. A key feature of the team culture at Atwell is collaborative planning between teachers within the same year level. Teachers share ideas, resources and teaching strategies with their colleagues, as this provides consistency in the learning program across all classes within a team. Teachers create overviews for each of the four phase one learning areas of the Western Australian Curriculum, that articulate a timeline by which the content descriptors will be taught.
Atwell Primary School creates operational plans for all learning areas. You can access these via the sub-menu on the Curriculum tab above.
