Room 20

Year 4/5 – Mr Riley Jupp

Hello and welcome to Room 20, my name is Riley Jupp and I will be teaching Year 4/5 in 2021.

I am from Perth and have recently graduated from Murdoch University. I grew up in Port Hedland so I have a sense of the community and it is amazing to be back teaching at Cassia Primary School. I aim to create a safe and supportive environment for my students.

In 2013 I travelled to Tanzania on a volunteering program to work with kids that didn’t have the resources to have a school experience. This was eye opening and I aim to bring a wealth of knowledge over from that experience and apply it in my classroom.

Literacy

I look forward to implementing the Talk 4 Writing program that Cassia provides for the students. This program aims to develop writing skills in fiction, non-fiction and poetry. For spelling, students will be using the PLD Dianna Riggs phonics program which is differentiated based on their spelling ability. The program provides multiple activities that assists students in progressing their spelling and reading skills.

Numeracy

At Cassia, we implement PRIME Mathematics which covers the five strands of mathematics – numbers and operations, measurement, geometry, data analysis and algebra. Along with multiplication and division, we will be learning about decimal places, fractions, angles, area and perimeter. The students will be given the opportunity to further this learning with STEM projects incorporated throughout the year.

We will also be implementing HASS, Technology, Media, Indonesian Art, Music and Health and Physical Education.

In Room 20 we follow specific behaviour expectations which reflect the Cassia Primary Schools expectation of we are responsible, we are resilient and we reach for success. Room 20 will be a classroom where possibilities are endless. Every student will have the opportunity reach for success and a growth mindset will be consistently encouraged.

We look forward to an amazing year in Room 20.
