Welcome to Room 5 where children learn through play. I create a warm, caring environment where children have ownership of their classroom.
Children direct their own learning during the day with a focus on developing the key competencies: Thinking, Relating to others, Using language, symbols, and texts, Managing self and Participating and contributing. Through their play, they are also learning Science, Social Science, The Arts, Technology and Health and Physical Education. This creates a smooth transition from early childhood and builds on the knowledge and skills they already bring to school. I teach reading, writing and math in small groups throughout the day.
