Our approach to learning

For the love of knowledge.

Supporting each child on their own learning journey

St Peter’s Woodlands supports children on their own learning journey through the delivery of a progressive curriculum.

Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI)

Our commitment to deliver exceptional teaching, with a strong focus on teaching literacy and numeracy skills through the delivery of EDI programs, enables children to set the foundations in their early years.

By explicitly teaching literacy and numeracy skills, students have the tools at their disposal to help them learn how to conduct inquiry, communicate ideas, and to be problem solvers.

Inquiry-Based Learning

At St Peter’s Woodlands we use an inquiry-based learning approach to help students take an active role in the learning process. As an International Baccalaureate World School, we access the IB Primary Years Program (IB PYP) curriculum framework to inform and frame our inquiry-based approach.

The program helps students build their understanding through authentic and real world contexts.

Specialist Curriculum

Together with exceptional classroom teachers, the delivery of the curriculum at St Peter’s Woodlands is supported by a broad range of specialist teaching staff.

Children experience specialist lessons in Art, Music, Physical Education and Japanese. They also benefit from accessing specialist Information Technology teachers and Digital Technologies teachers.

With solid foundational building blocks in place, we believe children can develop their independence and social skills, explore new opportunities and follow their passions.
