Year 5/6 – Miss Juliana Doyle
Welcome to Room 22 for 2021! My name is Juliana Doyle, I’m a graduate teacher and I’m looking forward to helping your child achieve their best!
The first few weeks of the Term will focus on settling into a school routine and becoming familiar with what is expected of us in and out of the classroom. Through positive behaviour lessons during the week we refamiliarise with the school values, routines and how to be successful with our behaviours! Embodying our school values of resilience, responsibility and reaching for success helps us to create a positive learning environment and a great place to be. Social emotional learning is as important as academic learning and through programs such as the Zones of Regulation and PBS lessons students are given the tools to be effective learners.
My class is primarily Year 5 and so I will align closely with Mrs Winter and Miss Nelson to support my Year 6s.
During Literacy students will be undertaking Talk for Writing, Talk for Reading, the Diana Rigg spelling program and handwriting. Talk for Writing gives students the toolkit to expand their writing skills and vocabulary. Talk for Reading improves the student’s fluency and reading comprehension. In addition, there will also be home readers sent home to encourage you to read with your child. The Diana Rigg spelling program challenges students while supporting them to improve their spelling.
In Numeracy we are implementing the Prime mathematics program. Students begin the math lesson with a warm up of mental maths and revision of previous topics before undertaking new concepts through Prime. Students are explicitly taught the tools to problem solve and link these skills to real life.
HASS will be taken by Mr. Gunendra and the students are studying civics and citizens for Semester 1. In Health students are working on emotional health and wellbeing. In media students are creating short films on the iPads and for Design & Technology the students are focusing on sustainability.
On Thursday’s students take Music, Indonesian, Art, Physical Education and Science.
I look forward to working with you and helping your child to reach for success! Please feel free to contact me on Seesaw with any concerns or questions, or make an appointment through the Front Office.
