Our unique Year 3 – 6 curriculum and elective programs support and enhance the transition to secondary school. These experiences develop confident, competent and compassionate graduates from Christ Church Grammar School.

Year 3 - Year 6

Learning through real-life experiences

From Year 3 to Year 6 our students put their learning to the test through real-life activities. Our experiences include a student-led café and a maths-based banking program, where our students apply skills and test themselves. Our electives program, also known as our Future Skills Program, gives our Year 4 - 6 students a unique opportunity to take on new challenges and learn new skills. To learn more about our Future Skills Program and the clubs we offer, please visit our Extra-curricular page. 

Fundamental skills and growth

Our Year 6 students become our school leaders. Their confidence has grown through our arts, sports and science programs, and this is their time to shine. Through Years 3 – 6, we continue to focus on developing strong literacy and numeracy skills. Our approach equips our students to develop the essential work habits that lay the foundation for future learning.

Student learning and achievement

We know each child and monitor their progress and development with regular assessments. This data provides insights into the abilities, knowledge, understanding, and emotions of students at various points in their learning journey. It enables each child to showcase newly acquired skills and knowledge in a variety of ways. 

We embrace the Australian Curriculum across all learning areas:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Humanities (History and Geography, Civics & Citizenship, and Economics) Technologies
  • Healthy and Physical Education
  • The Arts
  • LOTE

Our teachers use the explicit instruction method to teach fundamental skills and knowledge. This is a structured way to teach academic skills. Students are guided to learn new skills with clear explanations, and opportunities to practice that skill until they achieve mastery.

Ready for the transition to secondary school

Our Year 6 students emerge as school leaders, possessing confidence and a clear sense of identity. Upon leaving, our students are equipped with confidence, resilience, capability, compassion, and a readiness to engage in the next phase of learning at a secondary school level.
