Specialist Phase Integration

Louise, Helen and Sarah T

Integrated Early Years Technologies

Integrate both strands of the Technologies curriculum within the one teaching block

STEM focused where possible

If we don’t also teach Science to that class we still integrate that year levels Science focus into our lessons

P-2 Integrated Design and Digital Tech

Kindy – Integration within the Specialist Curriculum Areas

Specialist Areas taught – Science, Physical Education, Measurement

All lessons are hands on and more than often play based to encompass the Early Years Learning Framework.

Physical Education encompasses Fundamental Movement Skills and integrates the Arts

Science integrates The Arts, Literacy, Numeracy and Technology

Measurement integrates The Arts, Literacy and Technology

Discovering circles, using fine motor skills and free creativity with play dough

Finding different shapes in the playground, using speaking and listening and iPads to take photos of each other (chicken wings in)

Shape Monsters, focusing on one shape and incorporating over shapes learnt over the term. Students allowed freedom of creation.
