Children progress to the Middlies 3/4 as competent learners. Their enthusiasm is maintained because there is time to follow their own interests. This goes hand in hand with teaching that widens their knowledge in all facets of literacy and numeracy. It is a time when children are challenged to become responsible for decision making, to have a positive impact on the school, and to become socially active with organisations which represent the values of the school. Camps and other outdoor activities take on a new meaning, and the development of independent children with a strong moral compass is always in the mix. This is a transition time to the next step of becoming a Cottage School Biggie and all that the position entails.
