Active Learners - Room 1

One of the things we have agreed to work on is about being an 'active learner'. We talked and discussed this topic with the class and this is the result of what my students have agreed on. (refer to the chart below)

We will try our best to follow this and act on it every day.

Glenbrae School Values

We unpacked and talked about each of our school values every day. We provided examples, and identified situations / senarios for each of the values. 

Refer to the chart above for details of each value. 

We use the language of respects to help our students identify what they need to do. 

For example, "we respect our environment by making sure that our rubbish is going to the correct rubbish bin everyday".

Welcome Back!!

Last year was very good, and I have learned and shared some of those experiences with some of you. I will
continue to be reflective on my teaching practice, and make changes if needed in order to meet the needs of
my learners.

I am very excited about this year and my goal is to accelerate all learners’ achievement in writing as
mentioned above.

At Glenbrae School for this year our focus is raising achievement in literacy with a focus
on Maori & Pasifika students. We also want to trasfer the leadership capability, and embed pedagogical
changes developed in Mathematics over the last two years to the leadership of literacy, especially WRITING.




Teachers to consider when planning:

All the above questions are there to guide / help us forming our Inquiry focus for this year.

Last year Maths was about authentic problems and contexts that relate to learners’

prior knowledge.

This year writing is about the same thing!!. I can’t wait to see how these ideas work

and help my learners accelerate their learning. 

My learners will definitely have a great year of learning.
