Room 1

Welcome to Room 1, Year 2. We, Mrs Leanne Hopkins and Mrs Elizabeth Jones, as class teachers believe that each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world.  In our classroom we provide a caring, secure and stimulating atmosphere in which the children can grow and mature intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. It is our desire to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking and invites sharing of ideas.

It is our belief that in order for students to construct knowledge, they need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations.  Providing students access to hands-on activities and allowing adequate time and space to use materials that reinforce the lesson being studied creates an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge to occur.

It is important for the children to have the opportunity to study things that are meaningful and relevant to one’s life and interests.  Developing the curriculum around students interests fosters intrinsic motivation and stimulates passion to learn.  Given the opportunity for input, students generate ideas and set goals that make for much richer activities than we could have created or imagined by ourselves.

When the voice of each student is heard, an environment evolves where students feel free to express themselves.  Helping students develop respect for themselves, others and their environment occurs through an open sharing of ideas and a judicious approach to discipline.  Social circles are one way of encouraging such dialogue.  We believe that children have a greater respect for their teachers, their peers and the lessons presented when they feel safe and sure of what is expected of them. Children learn to respect themselves, others and their environment.

For us, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. Finally in showing children how to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning, we are giving them the tools to become successful in life and to believe in themselves.

Keep believing in achieving!

 Mrs Leanne Hopkins and Mrs Elizabeth Jones
