Middle Primary

In the Middle Years – Years 3 to 5

Children in the Middle Years are typically developing:

  • the ability to be more independent from their immediate / extended family
  • stronger connections with peers and sense of justice / fair play
  • more logical, consistent and deliberate thought processes with an increased ability to concentrate and remember
  • their ability to express more complex ideas and accept that others have differing points of view

Students in the Middle Primary Years learn through…

  • meaningful and purposeful activities
  • predictable and stable routines that support independence, self directed learning, flexibility and organisation skills
  • working with others in group situations, including Buddy classes from different age groups
  • they increase their ability to work independently and become more responsible for their own learning
  • using a wide range of resources and experiences in developing learning styles
