A grade one and two teacher explores the language of 2D shapes and their features with her students. The teacher aims to build the student's vocabulary around shapes and their features and also the location of objects. The lesson is adapted from an approach outlined by a maths consultant and included in the curriculum document developed by three local schools in their professional learning community. The teacher has adapted the lesson for her class, making it more kinesthetic and including consolidation, enabling and extending tasks.
St Georges Road Primary School services a culturally and linguistically diverse community. The educational program prioritises Literacy, Numeracy, learning to learn and ICT. As part of their drive to build strong, respectful partnerships within their community, the school has teamed up with two other local schools, Gowrie St Primary School and Wilmot Road Primary School, to establish a Professional Learning Community. The PLC provides a collaborative platform for the schools to access outside consultants and to plan and conduct professional learning that positively impacts teachers across each of the schools.
