Reporoa School Curriculum

Localised, Integrated Concept Inquiry using SOLO:

Reporoa Primary School developed a two year (8 term) localised concept inquiry plan using the SOLO taxonomy. The subject areas of English, Te Reo, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Health, P.E, and Arts are integrated into the concept inquiry each term. This cycle began in 2016. The concepts are reviewed and updated biannually to keep the curriculum current. The current concepts for each term are:
