Over the last two weeks, our students in Years 3 & 5 have been completing NAPLAN. These are online tests that all students in Years 3, 5, 7 & 9 complete across Australia. We are always preparing our students across the school to be assessment capable learners, through excellent learning and teaching and building their skills and capacity in approaching a variety of assessments. I want to congratulate our students on the calm and confident way in which they approached the assessments. We have really been focusing on:

  • going slowly and carefully for the first 13-14 questions
  • reading the questions carefully
  • using the paper to work out the answers
  • the skills required to navigate online testing

It is important to acknowledge our teaching staff, support staff and leadership team who have supported each class in a positive way. All parents in Prep to Year 6 can be supporting students to be assessment capable learners at home by using the online subscriptions such as Wushka, Mathletics and Reading Eggs as these give very similar style questions that our students will be exposed to over time.
