‚ÄčMultiage classes

What does a multiage classroom look like?

A multiage classroom contains children who, although of different ages, often work together in various groupings within the class. The teacher plans the environment and learning experiences in such a way that provides opportunity for all students to be appropriately challenged and experience success.

Main benefits identified in research

 

  • Younger children actively draw upon the expertise of older children to develop skills and to acquire knowledge. Many 'little teachers in the room'.
  • Mixed-age play offers unique opportunities for creativity and the practise of skills.
  • Age mixing provides opportunities for children to find others of similar abilities.
  • Older children actively assume leadership roles.
  • Students learn how to think, problem solve and cooperate with others.

 

At Seven Hills State School we are a multi-age school by choice, as we believe:

 

  • All students are competent and capable learners. Our job is to ensure that we provide students with appropriate learning experiences which allow them to move onto the next challenge.
  • Multi-age grouping promotes cognitive and social growth.
