Learning @ CRPS


The English program incorporates a daily literacy block that supports the whole language framework. Essential elements to the program are:

  • Continual assessment and regular one to one conferencing

  • Independent reading of both choice and set texts

  • Identification of each developmental stage

  • A range of text types

  • Partnerships between students, parents and teachers

  • All aspects of English - reading, writing, speaking and listening

The English program is designed to meet specific needs of all students at their developmental levels. It is a comprehensive program that aims to develop confident, independent learners.

We aim to provide students with the skills, tools and strategies to be lifelong literacy learners. We achieve this through one to one conferencing, independent reading, group discussions, formal presentations, goal setting (individual and point of need) and writing workshops.

The school encourages parental assistance, and information regarding parent helpers is provided during Term 1. Support involves working with small groups or individuals on teacher-planned tasks. A current Working with Children’s check is required. 


Guided by the Victorian Curriculum and Camelot Rise’s instructional model, mathematics is taught consistently throughout the school. Our approach includes:

  • Data-driven teaching and learning

  • Lesson focus made explicit through the explanation of learning intentions and success criteria

  • Whole class direct instruction using modelling techniques, digital technologies and other resources

  • Time for independent practice, focused teaching groups, partner and small group work

  • Whole class reflection and share time, as well as opportunities to discuss successful strategies and misconceptions


Throughout each year, students will focus on concepts within the areas of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. In our mathematics program, we aim to incorporate the skills and learning dispositions that support logical, strategic, flexible and adventurous thinking.

Learning includes:

  • The use of a wide range of manipulatives to help develop an understanding of mathematical concepts

  • Open-ended, problem solving activities and projects

  • A variety of digital technologies to enhance learning, such as netbooks, iPads, interactive whiteboards and mathematical software


Teachers use a range of ongoing assessment tools to monitor and assess student learning to help plan for future lessons and create independent student goals. Students are catered for through differentiated and personalised instruction within the classroom. A streamed extension program is also offered for students in levels 3-6 who show advanced capabilities in all areas of mathematics.
