New 3-5 project starting at special request of schools!

This project targets improvement in results for teachers and leaders of students in the middle years of primary school. Our 2018 3-5 project schools showed NAPLAN year 3-5 cohort gain that was 8.6% higher than the State average by May.  Download Information Sheet

Who should attend:

Teachers of students from Years 3-5, and their leaders. Year 2 and 6 teachers will also benefit, particularly if they teach a multi-stage class which includes year 3-5 students.

How to get the best results out of this project:

We have found the best results are achieved when teachers and leaders participating in the project –

  • Work with a group of students for at least one lesson per week of mathematics throughout the project (using the resources provided or developed with project participants)
  • Complete the diagnostic tasks provided, the interventions targeted to student growth and bring back the results within the specified times
  • Share samples of student work gathered throughout the project
  • Actively participate in discussions and were honest with their own struggles and successes

Substituting participants during the project is fine – however, it may make data analysis a little tricky!
