Room 10

Hello and welcome to the Room 10 Year 3 page.  My name is Kim Hennessy-Darke and I teach the students in this class. I also collaborate with Kristy McKinley and Wendy Tapper in Room 11 and the children from both rooms frequently have the opportunity to work collaboratively with each other.

Years 3 is an important year of primary school, beginning the transition from junior to middle primary.  The children are actively encouraged to participate in all activities and always strive to do their very best.  I do a lot of co-operative activities in my class where students are able to participate at their own level and every student is accountable for their own learning.  For many lessons, the learning intention and success criteria is put on the board and discussed in depth to ensure every child knows exactly what they are learning and what they have to do to succeed at the task.  My aim is to create independent students who are confident in their own ability to participate and learn.

Literacy and maths are our main focus areas with the Australian Curriculum our guiding force.  We concentrate on these in our morning sessions and after lunch we work on other subjects such as Humanities and Social Sciences, PATHS/Health, Science, Computers, Technology and Art.

I want every child in my class to feel welcome and safe and enjoy coming to school.  I teach with a great deal of humour and compassion for every one of my students.

You are always welcome to come in and visit our class and see what we are doing.
