Room 18

Welcome to Room 18, my name is Miss Kellie Mills and I have the pleasure of teaching the Year 4 students in Room 18 for Numeracy, HASS, STEM and Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) lessons. I would like to inform you of the variety of topics and concepts that I will be covering in the following learning areas with the students. 

Numeracy:

In our Numeracy Blocks, students will complete daily reviews, where they build up their automaticity skills, increase vocabulary, and consolidate concepts previously taught. Students are then explicitly taught strategies to problem solve and given multiple opportunities to apply these strategies to their learning using Prime.

HASS and STEM:

In Semester Two, we will be focussing on Geography, studying Africa and Europe. In STEM we will be researching, designing and creating a new toy. 

If you have any questions or wish to make a time to meet with me, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to a wonderful and productive Semester Two.

Welcome to room 18’s page, my name is Shaveen Gunendra and I am one of the classroom teachers in room 18. I teach the literacy component and health lessons for the students in Room 18.

At Cassia Primary, we use the Talk 4 Writing program which focuses on using spoken activities to develop writing skills in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. For Spelling, students will be using the PLD Dianna Rigg phonics program, which would be differentiated for their spelling ability. This semester, students will be focusing on procedure writing and a variety of narrative writing. 

In Health, we are utilising the Friendly Schools Plus program which has an emphasis on personal, social and community health. Students will be focusing on their mental health as well as their physical health.
