Workshop 1 & 2 Playing with the Australian Curriculum in Prep
This year we are experimenting with the National Curriculum in Prep. We are aiming to maintain our early years philosophy and continue to use the Project Approach while modifying the content to the new standards expected by the National Curriculum. This is about the attempts in one class to continue to play and learn. Practical hands on workshop to share and discuss.
