Pre Primary – Mrs Leeanne Doig & Mrs Kerry Robertson
Welcome to Room 3 at Cassia Primary School. My name is Lee Doig, and I am the one of the three Pre-Primary teachers in the ECE unit. I am from Roebourne last year; I have taught only in regional and remote Western Australia. Early Childhood Education is my passion, and I believe children are life-long learners who build on their own knowledge and experiences.
During Term 1 in Literacy, the students in Room 3 have been and will continue to learn to recognise and write their name using correct pencil grip and letter formation. The ‘Writing in the Sand,’ programme assists this development with pre-writing movements. The students are also learning the sounds that make up the most common words three letter words.
In Mathematics, pre-primary classes are following the Prime program. So far, we have covered numerals 1-10, one more one less, and next week are starting to explore sorting and graphing.
Other subjects covered in Room 3 include: HASS- family history, Health- PBS weekly lessons, healthy eating and the ‘Friendly Schools Plus’ program, in Digital Technologies the students have been learning about software and hardware.
Regulating emotions and behaviours, understanding and learning to express feelings is explored through PBS, Zones of Regulation and the Friendly Schools Plus program
Welcome to the 2021 school year and Mrs Robertson and I look forward to sharing our educational journey with your child and you.
