Teaching & Learning - Area 1

Welcome to Yellow 1!

Learning in Area 1…

 

Welcome to our Reception and Year 1 space!

Your teacher this year is Katie Mays, an Early Childhood Educator with an extensive early years background, working across Child Care, Kindergarten and school settings.

In Area 1, literacy (speaking & listening, reading, writing), numeracy, and physical (gross motor and fine motor) skills are developed through a hands-on, play-based curriculum, where problem solving, critical thinking and social skills are developed in a natural and homely setting.

Learning in this space focuses on social-emotional wellbeing of students and encourages a growth mindset. Character strengths such as kindness, curiosity, creativity, honesty and humour, as well as many others, are also valued.

You are welcome both before and after school if you wish to schedule a time to discuss any questions or concerns, or if you would like to talk about your child. You are also encouraged to join our Seesaw community to keep in touch and see photos of your child’s learning.
