Curriculum


At Movelle, learning is based upon the Victorian Curriculum where staff use this to develop Essential Learnings for what should be taught and what is important for students to have opportunities to know, understand and be able to do. They are the part of the curriculum that is common across all schools, and are specified for each of the key learning areas.



Our teachers use the Movelle Instructional Model which helps scaffold learning and support students to become independent and confident learners in the classroom. Having our own Instructional Model ensures a common approach and high quality teaching across all classrooms.



Our students are engaged in lessons in:

  • English (comprising interrelated language modes of Reading and Viewing, Writing, and Speaking and Listening). Students are engaged in a evidence-based phonics program when they begin school to support their English skills; teaching them writing, reading and spelling simultaneously to enhance learning through as many of the five senses as possible. Whether students are visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners, they are given a wide range of opportunities to retain what has been learned. Students are provided with daily, intensive, small group reading instruction that focus on student needs with a range of fiction and non-fiction high-interest books. Students are taught explicit writing skills; looking at genre, craft, writing with voice, writing conventions, developing ideas as well as skills for editing and revising their own work. This is taught through explicit writing lessons, writer's workshop and with the use of a Writer's Notebook.

 

  • Mathematics (organised under the strands of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Mathematics instruction at Movelle is very hands on and linked to real life scenarios and experiences. Students engage in rich assessment tasks, rocket maths lessons, problem-based mathematics and explicit maths sessions that provide both a focus and a clear sequence for the development of related concepts and skills.

 

  • Digital Technologies - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (comprising Science and Technologies).
  • ARTS (comprising Visual Arts and Performing Arts)
  • Physical Education (comprising the strands of Personal, Social and Community Health, and Movement and Physical Activity).
  • Japanese (understanding of the nature of language, culture, and the processes of communication)
  • Humanities (comprising Civics and Citizenship, Economics and Business, Geography and History)
  • Science (comprising sub-strands of Science as a Human Endeavour, Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Earth and Space Sciences, and Physical Sciences)
