Room 13 is a straight Year 1 class with 20 students.
I encourage every student to communicate their ideas and feelings as I feel it’s important for children to feel like they have a “voice”. This is done through Think, Pair Share activities throughout the day and various other teaching strategies.
There is a strong focus on active listening, paying attention and not disrupting those around you.
My aim for the end of the year is for my students to leave with a love of learning, a sense of belonging and a resilient, independent attitude.
We work collaboratively with Room 14 for many of our lessons, and as result both Year 1 classes are familiar with each other and have formed strong connections over the very unusual year with Covid 19.
Room 13 love going to library, learning our Talk for Writing text and of course the odd game of heads down thumbs up!
