At the end of each session we will reflect on the success criteria of the lesson and make goals for homework and follow up sessions.
We will address strands such as geometry, measurement, data handling, etc according to students' individual learning plans and goals.
We also offer the opportunity to work with the family to create learning plans in a range of other areas. We can create action plans to offer support for students within the areas of language and mathematics, such as fine motor skills, time management, responsibility etc.
We can also create an independent program to address specific curriculum areas such as science, support with homework assignments or create areas for learning with the family.
