Year 1/2 – Mrs Debbie Leonard
Room 9 is a Year 1/2 class and I am Mrs Debbie Leonard, your teacher. I would like to welcome everyone and I look forward to getting to know each and every child in my class, as well as parents and caregivers, to enhance every child?s learning. In Room 9, learning will be engaging and motivating, in an environment that encourages exploration, problem-solving, critical-thinking, creativity and respect. Children will feel safe and supported and will be encouraged to ask questions. Structured, explicit, and consistent synthetic phonics will play a significant role in the teaching of spelling and reading, following PLD best practice, together with Talk for Writing. At Cassia PS, Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is implemented across the school to ensure consistency and positive behaviours will be explicitly taught in Room 9 to ensure children develop these skills, both now and in the future. In Room 9, assessment will inform and drive explicit teaching within the classroom. Enriching every child in my care to their full potential is fundamental to my role as an educator.
We will use Seesaw to ensure instant communication and updates of what your children are learning and achieving. If you have any questions or simply want a chat, please feel free to contact me, I have an open-door policy, where parent help is not only encouraged, it is welcomed!
I look forward to an exciting, rewarding and successful year in Room 9.
