Words their Way. 

Words Their Way is a teacher-directed, student-centred approach to vocabulary growth and spelling development whereby students engage in a variety of sound, pattern and meaning activities, sorting pictures and words. It caters for differentiated learning in the classroom, rather than a one-size fits all solution. Read more about WTW here:

Students are expected to engage in sustained silent reading at home for at least 10-20 minutes per day. They are expected to use the online learning Mathematics curriculum: Mathletics to practise, rehearse and embed knowledge of concepts taught in the Stage 2 classroom. Teachers will modify tasks for individual students so that students are working within their ZPD: zone of proximal development.
