In our classroom we focus on being friendly and kind students and strive to become active, successful members of our community. We strongly follow the Cassia Behaviour Expectations of we are responsible, we are resilient and we reach for success. These behaviours are explicitly taught through Positive Behaviour Support lessons that are consistent across the school. Room 13 students receive engaging, challenging and thought-provoking lessons that are delivered through Explicit Direct Instruction and involve technology for students to Inspire, Believe and Achieve.
As part of a whole school approach, we follow the Talk for Writing program which focuses on engaging spoken activities to develop writing skills in narratives, persuasive texts and poetry. This program is complemented by the Talk for Reading program which assists development with comprehension skills, fluency and automaticity. To support this, students are highly encouraged to read at every opportunity they get by consistently taking home new levelled readers every week.
At Cassia, we implement the Prime mathematics program which is delivered to students through Explicit Direct Instruction to support their mastery with new concepts. In Term 3 and 4, students will learn about multiplication and division, money, fractions, time, chance and graphing. Students are provided with further opportunities to use their mathematical knowledge in STEM projects where they design, create
Students will additionally be learning Design and Technology, Geography, Indonesian, Art, Music, Sport, Science and Health.
We are having fun in Room 13 as we collectively work together to be responsible, resilient and successful learners.
