Room 12

Welcome to Room 12

Welcome to Room 12!

We are a kind, inquiring class. We use bucket filling to make everyone feel welcome and supported.

We ask questions like what, who, when, where, and how when we explore the world. We are scientists and form hypothesis to help us understand the world around us.

In Room 12, we are learning life skills through concept learning.

Term 1 is all about Identity and Managing Self.

Term 2 is about Questioning and Thinking.

We are threading the Language of Learning and Connecting and Reflecting throughout the year.  

You are welcome to visit our class and talk us about our learning.

Homework is made up of reading and in year 1 children are expected to do between 10 and 15 minutes.

Reading

3 ways to read a book

•Look and tell a story from the pictures
•Retell the story
•Read the words
•Reading is more than decoding, ask why, what do you think/take a guess, look at the pictures
 
I might ask you to practice High Frequency Words and letter sounds/names for you to do with your child
 
Writing 
You can help your child by making writing puposeful by:
•Make lists
•Write postcards/birthday cards
•Make words/letters using: sticks, stones, lego, playdough, in sand, use different coloured pens/crayons
