our curriculum

Lindenow Primary School uses the AusVELS Curriculum to develop and implement programs in the following areas:

  • Mathematics – Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability

  • English – Reading and Viewing, Writing, Speaking and Listening

  • History

  • Science

 

Teachers at Lindenow Primary School have worked collaboratively to create a ‘KidSpeak’ document based on AusVELS. This document outlines learning outcomes and curriculum areas in a ‘child-friendly’ language that students can easily understand.

Numeracy and Literacy are the core learning areas, with other subjects such as Health and the Humanities supplementing student development.

At Lindenow Primary School we firmly believe in teaching the individual. We endeavour to cater for individual learning styles and needs, taking into account the personal strengths, weaknesses and interests of each child.

There is a strong emphasis on building Literacy skills in Prep to Grade 2, particularly in the area of reading. To ensure a solid literacy foundation, strategies such as one-to-one support, an excellent take-home reader program and the opportunity to work with a Speech Pathologist are provided to students.
