Walker Learning Approach

Our Kindergarten to Year 2 students engage in purposeful play-based learning. 'Discovery Time' (based on the Walker Learning Approach), allows the students to be involved in meaningful, student-centred and curriculum-based learning that is relevant and developmentally appropriate within an intrinsically motivating learning environment. 

Our teachers determine overall learning intentions for Discovery Time for each term which are adjusted accordingly to the needs of each individual class of students. This includes social-emotional and behavioural learning intentions as these decided upon by each teacher and heavily dependent on what is developmentally appropriate at the time in addition to the needs of students in the class.
