IQRA College caters for primary school students from the Reception level to Year Six in 2019.
In their first year of school, students learn through teaching interactions with others,
experimentation, practice and play in the classroom and school community. Priority is given to literacy and numeracy development as these are the foundations upon which further learning is built. Opportunities to develop literacy and numeracy are found in all subjects but particularly in English and Mathematics. Learning in a classroom and belonging to a school community are key to the first year at school. Each state and territory has a different name for the first formal year of schooling such as ‘Reception’, ‘Kindergarten’ ‘Pre-Primary’ or ‘Prep’.
Priority is given to the important areas of literacy and numeracy development. English and Mathematics are the core subjects for this, however, literacy and numeracy are found in all subjects. By the end of Year 2, students have a much stronger understanding of themselves and have begun to connect with the wider community.
In Years 3 and 4, students become more independent; they communicate with others more effectively. English and Mathematics continue to be a priority, and literacy and numeracy are developed across all learning areas. The curriculum further builds the essential knowledge and skills in literacy, consolidating ‘learning to read and write’.
In Years 5 and 6, students develop an ability to take positive actions for their wellbeing; they relate to others and communicate well with others; they ask challenging questions and seek answers; they make informed decisions and act responsibly. The development of information and communication technology skills increases across the curriculum at this level.
