Learning

Zoning

Across the school in each of the teaching teams, zoning of learning occurs in Mathematics (Number) and elements of English (Reading, Writing and Spelling). Students are zoned in groups according to their point of learning need. Teachers in each of the teaching teams work with groups of students with similar learning needs, providing very targeted and specific lessons at their zone of proximal development (ZPD). This is the point at which intervention for the group of students will have its greatest impact, the point at which the students are most ready to learn. Assessment is used to zone and rezone students into fluid, flexible groups and is a starting point rather than the end result of learning. Zoned learning occurs within a developmental continuum rather than at levels. Teachers at Canterbury Primary School work very closely to plan, teach and monitor the learning of each student ensuring the next stage of learning is identified and catered for.
