In Year 1 at AISB Ramintra, children will now begin their primary level of education. There will be key focus on academics as children further develop their understanding of literacy, numeracy and the sciences. Children are encouraged to express themselves through our diverse program of visual, creative and performing arts. Reading skills are carefully developed and monitored through our PM Reading Level Benchmarks. Oral and Written Assessments take place throughout the year to keep track of children’s development before they make the step up to Year 2.
Referring to the Australian Early Years Learning Framework, we recognize that partnerships start first and foremost with family. It’s essential that schools provide a welcoming environment where children and families are encouraged to work actively with educators to create a meaningful educational experience. We use our reach to collaborate with families to organize special events and activities that link into the learning themes taken on by children. Careful observations by our team of qualified teachers are used to personalize pedagogical approaches to suit each child’s needs.
In addition to the normal homeroom teaching program, specialist classes provide further opportunities to develop the extensiveness and depth of the students’ skills and understandings in Year 1. Year 1 children continue to engage in Library, Music, and the Perceptual Motor Program. Thai Language and Culture is taught by our experienced team of Thai teachers.
