Room 8


My name is Julie Weir and I teach the students in Room 8.

As my students are at the early stage of formal learning I place a strong emphasis on helping students develop the characteristics to be a successful learner i.e. listening carefully to instructions, organisational skills and cooperative skills so they can learn in a class setting.

Room 8 is a busy place where literacy and maths are the main focus areas.

Students are actively involved with many hands on activities. The smart board is used as a wonderful tool to motivate the students’ learning.

I like to integrate the learning using a thematic approach. I find this way children get excited about the learning and make connections across the subject areas. I enjoy creating a learning environment that supports student’s learning with many charts and bright displays reflecting student’s work on the theme.

The arts are well catered for in Room 8 as we have a piano in the room and students enjoy unwinding at the end of the day with musical activities. Our class is fortunate in that we are well situated next to the art room where we create many of our art works.

You are welcome to visit our class and see what we have been up to.
