It has been an exciting start to the year with students and teachers getting to know each other through our Start Up program. Our classrooms are safe and engaging learning environments where children and valued and encouraged to take risks and have a go. It has been fantastic to see the children settling into classroom routines and enjoying all aspects of school life thus far!
Literacy and Numeracy programs have kick-started with students developing their knowledge and skills through fun, interactive, hands-on learning tasks that cater to a variety of learning styles and abilities. Play is a very important part of our curriculum that allows children to make real-life connections to their learning and encourages communication, team work and oral language. OOur S.H.A.R.E. program encourages our students to acknowledge that they are part of a learning community. Each student is responsible for taking responsibility of their actions in a way that values building safe and positive classrooms. Student accountability encourages student learning, and helps improve academic performance and achievements. We have also been learning about how to be safe online through our Cyber Safety program in term 1. Specialists for this semester include The Arts, Physical Education and L.O.T.E. (Turkish).
We have a couple of special events this term that we are eagerly looking forward to... The 'Teddy Bear's Picnic' is one.
A busy start to the year with lots more to come!
