Learning at our school

Blue Haven Public School uses evidence-based teaching practices to deliver lessons to all students. Students take part in daily warm-ups which provide students with the opportunity to revisit prior learning and apply previously taught content. The aim is to move knowledge from short-term to long-term memory, so students effectively remember what they have learnt.

Our teachers deliver explicit lessons using the explicit instruction model of “I Do, We Do, You Do.” The aim of this approach is to ensure that students are provided with a clear model, followed by guided practice with strong supports before being given the opportunity to work independently. This approach ensures that students are provided with the opportunity to be successful as they are given the tools and strategies to master their learning.

Our teachers receive ongoing professional support in explicit instruction and effectively use warm-ups and explicit teaching in English and Mathematics. Teachers at Blue Haven deliver an inquiry model of teaching for History, Geography, Science and Technology.
