Fruitvale Road School is expanding and we are proud of the expansion that is happening. In 2019 we will have a new entrance and an awesome new 8 classroom block. Our reputation for high quality care and academic excellence is spreading and we love that the values we live and teach daily our students use well, setting themselves up for successful, full and interesting lives. We provide equitable access to all of the students using the latest, most useful APPs and technology to ensure the children here are experienced with and are able to integrate what does the best job for the circumstances they are trying to understand and manipulate for their learning. Our commitment to making learning visible to the learner is enhanced by the tools we use on a daily basis. Collaboration is a key requirement for living in this world of ours and our systems encourage and support our learners to work together successfully identifying their own skills and that of their school-mates to effectively solve problems. That we are part of the Kotuitui collaboration of schools allows us as professionals and you as parents access to an excellent group of schools working to create the best pathway for your children into their educational futures.
This is my Fruitvale in-school Community of Learning team:
For 2020, Erin is working within the 'Connecting both ends of the curriculum' - ECE Tranistion workstream. Her inquiry question is in development.
The focus of my inquiry is: How will the use of specific learning progressions for Literacy develop a shared Learning Language at Fruitvale School, and will this increase student achievement? I will be working with a target group of students to develop learning progressions that can be written in child-centred language so that our whole school community will have access to a consistent learning language. These can be used by teachers and students to set learning goals and also for assessment purposes. I will be monitoring my target group to evaluate the impact Learning progressions have on achievement, so they can be a living curriculum that constantly evolves.
