At Alinjarra, we are implementing whole-school approaches to teaching and learning to ensure seamless progression through the years for our students.  It is important that our teaching and learning programs are supported by evidence based strategies.

Origo Stepping Stones is our core mathematics programme from Kindergarten to year 6, it is designed by mathematics specialists and is based on the Australian curriculum.

Talk For Writing is our whole school approach to literacy, it is based on the principles of how children learn.  It enables students to imitate the language they require for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version of the text.
