Years 1/2 team updates

From the Team Leader

Years 1/2 puppets

Dear Families,

Our 9 classes in the 1/2 team this year are named after Australian junior fiction authors.

The teachers and class names are:

Alice Roscoe - 1/2AR Matt Cosgrove

Taneal Proctor - 1/2TP Alison Lester

Heather Walker - SK-2HW Graeme Base

Rhiannon Call - 1/2RC Graeme Base

Effie Logan - SK-2EL Jackie French

Candace Goffin - 1/2CG Jackie French

Melanie Akhurst - 1/2MA May Gibbs

Kayla Gifford -  1/2KG Mem Fox

Tilly Cave - SK-2TC Mem Fox

This year the 1/2 team are building on the elements of Learner Assets (skills and dispositions).  Learner Assets have complements and enhanced our team’s focus over the past couple of years of instilling a growth mind set and resilience in students. We begin the year focusing on being a self-manager which is embedded in our school’s SCARFF values. Focus on this asset at the beginning of the year supports the development of independent and responsible learners. It also builds a strong foundation to be risk-takers throughout their school years. Learner Assets are what we want to be (thinkers, researchers and communicators) and the skills and dispositions underpin them (risk taking, perseverance, open mindedness). We will also be exploring the big questions “Who am I?” and “Who am I with country?” which links in with our Inquiry focus about  ‘the world is represented in geographical divisions that are interconnected in many ways’.

The team’s term letter outlines our focus for the term. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school on (02) 61422430 if you have any concerns or feedback, or your class teacher for further information.

Warmest regards,

Jess Engele
