At Wattle View Primary School, we prioritise literacy and numeracy skills whilst offering an engaging and balanced curriculum. Our programs are developed by our dedicated teaching teams and informed by the Victorian Curriculum. Each week students engage in lessons in English, Mathematics, Inquiry and Respectful Relationships in the classroom, as well as specialist lessons in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths), Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Physical Education and Auslan. Inquiry learning provides opportunities for rich exploration into subjects including History, Geography, Design Technology and Science. Information Technology is integrated in all aspects of Teaching and Learning with students having access to computer devices in their classrooms.

We understand the pivotal role that literacy and numeracy play in a child’s education and their journey as a life long learner. Student learning is individualised through regular assessment enabling teachers to differentiate and support each student at their point of need. We also have extensive Literacy Intervention programs in place to support students who require additional support with Reading and Writing skills, and extension opportunities for students who are working beyond.

Our programs, both within classrooms and specialist lessons ignite curiosity, foster critical thinking, and cultivate a love for learning in every child. From the arts and sciences to technology and global perspectives, our holistic curriculum offers a diverse range of subjects and learning opportunities to cater to the individual interests and talents of each student.

Reporting to Parents:  There is a report generated in June and December each year to report student progress. As well as providing reports, parents and students have the opportunity to participate in 3 way student led conferences. This allows the students to showcase the work that they do and share their future goals for improvement. As well as providing these formal opportunities, parents are welcome to communicate with our staff through emails, informal meetings and scheduled meetings as required. Student Support Group meetings are also arranged with the Assistant Principal and classroom teachers to share goals and progress with students who require additional support.



Our dynamic Literacy program empowers young learners to unlock the magic of language through a systematic synthetic phonics approach. With a curriculum designed to inspire a lifelong love of reading and writing, we cultivate critical thinking, communication skills, and a deep appreciation for the power of words.

At the heart of our curriculum lies a proven method that systematically teaches children the relationship between sounds and letters, laying a solid foundation for literacy skills that will last a lifetime. Through engaging activities, interactive games, and personalized instruction, our dedicated educators guide students through each step of their reading and writing journey with confidence and enthusiasm.

With a focus on phonemic awareness, decoding skills, and fluency development, our systematic synthetic phonics program ensures that every child progresses at their own pace, building upon their strengths and addressing their individual needs. Whether your child is just beginning their literacy journey or refining their skills, our comprehensive program caters to all levels and abilities.

Beyond phonics, our English Program offers a rich and immersive learning experience, where students explore literature, expand their vocabulary, and express themselves creatively through writing. Students engage in regular discussion about text and learn to master advanced reading comprehension strategies, empowering them to delve into complex texts with understanding and insight. Their Writing skills are developed through daily modelling and practise, with teachers guiding students in crafting compelling narratives, persuasive essays, and creative expressions, equipping them with the tools to communicate effectively and express their unique voice. Our approach to Literacy at Wattle View is highly differentiated and engaging to ensure that students’ individual needs, interests, and abilities are catered for.



In line with the Victorian Curriculum, Wattle View Primary School has a strong focus on the use of the proficiency strands of fluency, understanding, problem-solving and reasoning to scaffold students’ understanding in mathematics. 

Students are exposed to concepts from the three strands of Mathematics:

– Number and Algebra

– Measurement and Geometry

– Statistics and Probability

At Wattle View Primary School, we understand that each student’s understanding develops at different rates and in different ways.  We value the individual learning styles of each student and strive to target instruction and classroom experiences to cater for each student’s point of need.  As such, teachers at Wattle View Primary School use a range of assessment tools to identify next steps for learning for each of our students and adjust our lessons and instruction to ensure every student is appropriately challenged and can succeed regardless of their learning level.

Teachers at Wattle View Primary School work collaboratively to target teaching in Number & Algebra concepts through the use of Maths Groups.  Through the use of Guttman Charts and targeted assessments, teachers determine students’ Zones of Proximal Development and develop learning sequences to ensure each child is progressing at their point of need. 

In Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability, teachers use real-world and hands on experiences to ensure learning experiences are engaging and relevant to students’ real lives and the wider world.  Teachers work collaboratively to develop application tasks directly linked to the Victorian Curriculum to ensure students are being challenged at an appropriate level. 



Homework reflects the age, maturity and skill levels of the individual pupil. It consists of regular tasks at each grade level ranging from reading to parents, to revisional and research work.

Homework is set on a regular basis and is a means of communication with parents.
Homework is in the form of oral reading, spelling, and times tables.

Levels 3-6 follow a home learning homework program called ‘Super 7’. This is run in conjunction with a homework sheet that follows current learning within the classroom and is curriculum aligned.

An example of the Super 7 is pictured below.

Specialist Programs

The school offers specialist Art, Music and Physical Education programs as well as additional programs. The school positively and actively encourages students with learning difficulties.

Creativity knows no bounds in our Performing Arts program, with students engaging in a hands on lesson involving music, dance and drama each week.

From exploring the many instruments in our collection to performing on the big stage as part of our biennial whole school production, our program fosters a love for the arts while nurturing each child’s unique talents.

The performing arts are not just about entertainment but also essential for building confidence, teamwork, and communication skills. Through collaborative projects and hands-on experiences, students learn the value of cooperation, resilience, and dedication, preparing them for success both on and off the stage.

Visual Arts

Our spacious Visual Arts Room allows the children to explore and experience a wide variety of materials. Sessions incorporate the exploration of painting, drawing, construction, modelling and textiles.

Art and craft activities are also integrated with units of work in the classroom. Artwork created by the children takes pride of place in classrooms, the foyer and around the school.


The STEM program at Wattle View Primary School provides students with the opportunity to explore and make discoveries in their learning. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is an interdisciplinary subject that that encourages students to learn through hands-on activities and projects. Students develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and utilise their creativity in their weekly STEM lessons.

Wattle View students explore scientific principles, use technology and design solutions, and apply mathematical concepts to real-world challenges. Our goal is to inspire a lifelong love of learning and curiosity about the world. We aim to empower students to become future innovators, inventors, and leaders in a rapidly changing world.



Physical Education
