Classes & Curriculum
At Holy Rosary and St Anne’s we want to ignite children’s imagination and their active, willing and enthusiastic engagement in their learning.
Our aim is to: ensure that every child succeeds; build on what they already know; make learning vivid and real; make learning an enjoyable and memorable experience; enrich the learning experience as well as promote ‘Pupil Voice’ and ‘Assessment for Learning’.
Our curriculum should enable children to encounter and begin to explore the wealth of human experience through induction into, and active engagement in, the different ways through which humans make sense of their world: intellectual, moral, spiritual, aesthetic, social, emotional and physical, through language, mathematics, science, the humanities, the arts, religion and other ways of knowing and understanding and act upon it.
Creative Thinking and curiosity is at the heart of the Holy Rosary and St Anne’s approach to learning. We aspire for the children to explore, negotiate, discover, experiment, speculate, empathise, reflect, collaborate, cooperate, persevere, show initiative, and demonstrate leadership, teamwork, curiosity, flexibility, integrity and curiosity.
