About Our Class
Welcome to Room 2 at Eagle Point Primary School. We are a busy bunch of 16 Prep/Grade 1 students.

We love exploring new concepts and learning as well as having fun with our friends!

During the literacy block every morning we have Sound Waves sessions where we learn all the letter names and sounds. This helps us during reading and writing as we learn to segment and blend sounds together to make words. We explore different genres and authors and learn to talk about our thinking as we are reading. We learn many strategies to help us read and and write and celebrate our successes!

In numeracy we explore various maths concepts such as numbers, counting, addition, subtraction, measurement and shapes. Maths is very hands on so we use different materials to help us, such as Unifix cubes, icy pole sticks, counters, dice, buttons and pom poms. We learn different strategies for solving addition and subtraction problems.

We look forward to Performing Art and P.E. on Tuesday as well as Art on Wednesday. We enjoy participating in games outside on Thursdays with the other junior classes, as well as having brain breaks to help us focus on our learning.  Our favourite game to play is 'Everybody's It'! In the junior classes we get to go on excursions once a year, sometimes it's to the Buchan Caves, Raymond Island, Cape Conran or the Melbourne Zoo!

The early years of primary school focus around the core skills of reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, science, physical education, art and social skills. We work very hard to ensure that learning is targeted to each child’s individual needs by providing differentiated tasks. 

We can be found in the orange room, we would love to see you!

About Our Class
Welcome to Room 8 at Eagle Point Primary School. Our Grade 3/4 class consists of 22 students.

At Eagle Point Primary School our students are fortunate to experience many interesting learning opportunities. Not only are they provided a curriculum that is needs fulfilling, engaging and targets their individual level, they have opportunities to be a part of a ‘Quality’ classroom and develop as a whole child.

Each week the students in our Grade visit the Art Room with Ms Buckwell, Performing Arts with Miss Bradbury and have fun in Physical Education with Mrs Simpson. We see our classroom as a happy, supportive, challenging learning environment where students are able to explore, be creative and achieve success.

As a class we will decide on some Expectations that are based around our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Care, Commitment and Inclusiveness that encompass our school rights, ‘Every child has the right to Learn, Be Safe, Belong, Have Fun. These Expectations will guide us in our classroom to be the best learners and community members we can be. The students will be learning how to become independent, self motivated, driven learners. This will include them learning how to take responsibility for their learning, choices and making opportunities for themselves.

It is an expectation that all Grade 3/4 students will complete home learning tasks daily. This will include nightly reading and reading words.

Grade 3 and 4 are extremely exciting years! The students get to experience a school camp, the first one for most of them.

To begin the year, our BIG focus is for students to feel comfortable in their new environment, build relationships with new students and re-connect with old friends, learn to work together and settle in.

Wishing you all a wonderful new year and I am looking forward to working together and enjoying the learning, challenges and of course fun along the way!

Feel free to drop in anytime, we love visitors and extra helpers!
