Kindergarten team updates
From the Team Leader
My name is Celeste Murphy and I will be acting P/K Team Leader for term 2. I have met some families at the Parent Reading Workshop in term 1. I am enjoying my new role and spending more time in the kindergarten classes and sharing in their learning.
An ongoing focus for kindergarten students is developing their oral language through play-based learning, investigations, story baskets and authentic speaking and listening opportunities. You can further support your child in developing their speaking and listening skills through using prompts such as:
- How did you share your thinking today?
- How did you get smarter today?
- What would you like to learn more about?
- What is something you were proud of today?
- How did you challenge yourself?
- What type of learner were you today?
Across Turner School, students are engaged with the learning assets and disposition to build their skills to learn, live and work in the 21st century. Kindergarten continues to develop their ability to be a ‘self-manager’ as well as their new asset in term 2 of being an ‘effective communicator’.
Turner School highly values our parent community and encourage all families to be involved in the school. We welcome families to participate in school activities and volunteering opportunities. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher to discuss possible opportunities to become involved in the classroom.
As team leader, my role is to work with your child’s teacher, families and of course, your children. Please approach me to introduce yourself or if you wish to discuss anything related to the kindergarten classes. Alternatively, contact me at school on (02) 6205 6622 or via my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
