Around the classes


At our Meet and Greet Evening, hopefully you noticed our whole school pedagogical practices:

  • Negotiated classroom rules
  • Student profiling that demonstrates the amazing diversity in our school (did you know that at our school, 74% students speak English as an Additional Language or Dialect?)
  • Word Walls for a range of subjects, in particular Maths and English
  • Task sheets for Maths, English, Science , and History or Geography
  • A exemplars (example of what an A looks like for a particular task)
  • Child Friendly Guides to Making Judgements (what students need to do to get an A)
  • Student goals

At Brisbane Central, we seek to understand our students, make learning visible and teaching explicit, and provide opportunities to push our students achieve their best. Make sure on your next visit to your child’s classroom , you take the time to view these practices on the walls, and ask your child’s teachers further questions about how teaching and learning works in their room.

Year 5/6

Year 5/6 have had an extremely busy start to the year! We are currently reading short stories and learning strategies and techniques which can make our own short stories brilliant! Did you know, you only have 60 seconds to grab the readers attention? We always make sure we start our stories where the action is and ensure our orientations sizzle with excitement!
 We have also started solving lots of maths problems and in Science we are exploring electrical circuits! We even get to make our own! How cool is that! In Art, we are travelling on a journey into our past and learning about famous artists. Our classroom is starting to look like the an art gallery as we attempt to recreate masterpieces by Van Gough, Leonardo da Vinci and Claude Monet!

I Can…..

TIB – This is because
We want to learn how poems are written so we can reconstruct our own poems
