It was with great excitement and anticipation that the teachers welcomed their new Grade Six classes. Much effort went into preparing their classrooms and passages and they were each ready to make their own space HOME to 31 new faces.
Over the past two weeks the kids have gotten to know each other, their teachers and their new environment better, as well as learning the rules and boundaries set in each classroom. They’ve discovered their teachers expectations and they have settled into new routines with ease.
Our first theme for the year is Self Image. This gives the Grade Sixes a chance to view themselves closely and to learn how their own words, actions, body language and facial expressions impacts on somebody else’s view of themselves. The tasks set gives the teachers an opportunity to get to know each child on a deeper level.
We are so looking forward to our year together with this amazing bunch of kids. Our aim is to make each child feel loved and safe in order for them to work to their full potential. Watch out 2017 – this is going to be a great year.
