At Tahatai Coast School, we deliver the NZ Curriculum through a Connected Curriculum inquiry process.
Whilst literacy and numeracy remain paramount for all children, we encourage engagement and learning, through making connections within all areas of the curriculum. This is achieved by having an ‘umbrella’ topic for the year, with classes choosing aspects of this theme to investigate, using the iCan Tool Kit.
This is combined with the seamless integration of our iLive and iLearn behaviours, which are closely linked to the NZ Curriculum’s Key Competencies, and Information and Communication Technology.
2013 Umbrella Topic
“Pathways to Tomorrow”
Teachers, both individually and within Whanau, have the opportunity to provide learning experiences that will stimulate and enhance your child’s learning, through an inquiry method.
In the 21st century, young adults entering the work force, will need to have an excellent understanding of problem solving skills, to meet the challenges that will face them in an increasingly changing environment.
Through a Connected Curriculum inquiry approach, we believe we are preparing our young people very well, for their future.
