Specialist Subjects

French

All classes R-7 participate in 2 French lessons per week taught in designated classrooms by our specialist French teachers. Students are encouraged to use the language as much as possible through the Accelerative Integrated method (AIM) which uses a range of gestures to support language learning.

Performing Arts

All students participate in one lesson per week, provided by a specialist teacher, with a major focus on music, dance and drama. Descant Recorder lessons are offered to Year 3 and 4 students and an Instrumental Programme is offered to Year 5 - 7 students. Instruments include flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, bass guitar and drums. Together they form the Reynella School Band. We have three choirs: Junior Girls, Junior Boys and Festival Choir.

P.E.

Students receive two Physical Education lessons per week conducted by a specialist Physical Education teacher. Physical Education is designed at Reynella to assist in the social, emotional and physical development of each student. Students learn how to work effectively in teams to plan, create, test and implement movement skills and strategies in game and sporting situations. Feedback with the use of ICT is a major focus; students are regularly provided the opportunity to view and analyse their skills and game-play via the use of iPads and are required to assess what they are doing well and where they can improve their outcomes.
