We have recently started having regular ‘class meetings’ - an important milestone in our schooling life where the children are able to express issues that arise in the class, that need discussion and action. Examples of these include: items going missing from bags; how we treat classroom equipment; and the language we use between class members. We are modelling a way to resolve simple issues with the intention to extend these skills over the next few years. It has been so impressive to witness the children’s level of engagement and willingness to discuss some difficult topics.
We have also been fortunate enough to receive a new teacher into our class group. Bonnie teaches in our class every Thursday and brings amazing content to the group in new and exciting ways. For me, as the original class teacher, it feels like we have welcomed an auntie into the fold. The children love what Bonnie brings and it is turning out to be a really good example of how we can build a team to support a class group.
We are a lucky group of individuals that get to call ourselves class 4N.
