The Foundation/Grade 1 classroom focus' on building routines and independence. The daily program centres around the SMART Spelling Approach Foundation word and sentence of the week. This develops strong phonological (letters/sounds knowledge) awareness, understanding of common words, language experiences and love of literature. There is explicit teaching of Number skills with an emphasis on using hands on materials. Students learn about rules and responsibilities as well as working co-operatively and fostering relationships.
