Our Students - Year 5/6 Room 10

This semester, Room 10 students have been focusing hard on their writing. At the beginning of the year, many students identified writing as an area of weakness and indicated that they would like to improve by the end of the year. After teaching students about narrative structure, genre, character and setting development, students were asked to write a genre-orientated narrative that they selected at random. Students were given 3 weeks to brainstorm, draft, edit and publish their narratives. Shown here are some of the amazing pieces of work that the students were able to produce in the given time frame. When the class reflected on their efforts, all of the students were proud to showcase their work and over 80% of students felt that their writing ability had improved.

 Students have been researching their history projects on the ipads. Once they have collated their information, they are able to present their topics to the class using an app called Keynote.

   

 


Teacher's Philosophy

I am a friendly, professional, and proactive teacher who enjoys teaching and working collaboratively. My approachable nature and excellent communication skills allows me to build positive relationships with staff, students. Successful teaching and learning begins with an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher who can pass this intrinsic motivation onto students, encouraging them to achieve higher outcomes and have high expectations. I believe that all students are unique and require a differentiated and inclusive curriculum to achieve their potential. I appreciate and understand that students respond to many different learning styles and offer a variety of these when teaching to engage each child providing equal opportunities. I feel it is imperative to provide a safe and positive learning environment for students, establishing classroom norms and routines so that students are familiar and comfortable with the rules and expectations of the classroom allowing them to be successful. The routines I set up in my class are well rehearsed and visually displayed, providing clarity and stability so that students are able to focus on their learning.
