Years 5 and 6


Students in this age group are usually now more emotionally developed, and are able to extend the brain's rational/logical abilities. However, they are still in the middle of their creative development phase, and require feedback and guidance from trusted adults.


Students are encouraged to develop passion projects, applying and extending their knowledge across all areas as they turn their ideas into reality


As students mature, they look out into the world for new ideas to feed their strong imaginations

“It is so important to me that our youth grow and develop in an environment that embraces diversity and helps them reach their full potential whilst engaging with their environment and community.”

Consolidating learning and growing creativity

This is typically a consolidation period for students. They are still in the middle of their creative development, and nature now shifts the brain’s focus from emotional development to the further opening of its rational/logical abilities.
Developing teamwork and confidence

Reading, writing and maths are a big focus for year 5 and 6 students, and wherever possible learning happens through meaningful real-world experiences.

Students regularly meet with their educator to review their learning pathway. Projects, selected by students and guided by educators, are an important factor in growing their creativity and self expression. Students are guided to learn team skills and leadership skills and are encouraged to grow through personal and group challenges.

Cognitive development continues through advancing Feuerstein levels. Social responsibility is fostered through encouragement to consider their actions and their influence on others from what feels right in their hearts and minds.
