Literacy

Our Literacy block consists of independent reading, guided reading and interactive read-alouds (based on the F & P Program), Word Study (based on the Words Their Way Program), Writing, and oral language.


Numeracy

In Numeracy we use  real life problems to engage our students. We explicitly teach important mathematical ideas, skills and problem solving strategies that students will draw on in their personal and work lives.


NAPLAN

NAPLAN assesses students on numeracy, reading, writing and language conventions (spelling and grammar). It is conducted nationally for students in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9. We will be supporting students to manage their time under test conditions and with the literacy demands within the tests. At BMPS we use the NAPLAN as an independent assessment of our children. This enables us to be compared to the state and similar schools.
