Sarah’s class is made up of six to eight year olds. Here are some of the children’s thoughts about their class, some of the things they do and what they like about it.

In Sarah’s class the mornings usually start with a story, news or a whole class discussion. This time is also designated to teaching the planned literacy program.

After morning tea the children learn about numbers and new mathematical concepts are introduced. They also do silent reading where they have the opportunity to choose their own books within their level of ability.  This provides me with the chance to sit with those who may need more guidance.

The afternoon timetable is varied and involves craft; PE and a class meeting, each of these being held once a week. Additionally, at this time further attention can be given for individual learning and discovering of new information concerning specific topics of interest that arise throughout the term.

  • “I like "free Friday" it is terribly awesome! We get to chill out with our friends and stuff like that. Sometimes we have canteen and ice-blocks. Some Fridays we don't even have inside time. Our school has its own library and music room where we get to play musical instruments. Dog Radio on Fridays is always awesome. We dance and listen to dance music played by Wendy's class.”  Cameron
  • “My favourite days at Currambena would be Wednesdays and Fridays because on Wednesday in the morning we go to craft and it is totally awesome! We just get to build this cool stuff each time we go and every time i mostly do Balsa wood, silk screening, well, mostly everything. Fridays are "free Fridays" and I think that's great because we only get two inside times which ar school meeting and a morning session. My favourite room would definitely be the music room and I also like the work, it's cool! I hate holidays because i like school so much. Even though I'm in a new class this time i'm alreday peas in a pod with someone each day” Josh
