Lara Lake PS has been part of a dramatic change in teaching and learning over the past few years.
The current trend in education is to rely on many sources of data to indicate student improvement in literacy and numeracy.
Principals must account to Regional Office for a school improvement plan.
Teachers must account to the Principal for test data collected in the classroom.
Students must account to their teachers for their learning in the term units- especially Maths and Literacy.
This year students in MLY will explain their learning when parents interview them on Thursday, 28th June.
We have a script for parents to follow, our data to explain and our goals for the rest of the year to discuss.
We are very excited and have been explaining the process to Mr Wood, MsRichards and Mr Creece.
Here are some videos that may help you to understand how we ‘learn to learn’ in MLY.

MLY read this post for our shared reading session.
Our task was to make up some thick questions to challenge your thinking about this post.
Can you answer the questions.
1. What if Mr Creece did not have a learning improvemnt plan to show Regional Office?
2. What would happen if the students made a learning improvement plan to show Mr Creece?
3. How would you feel if you did not learn in your class?
4. How has education changed in the last few years?
