Junior Team


Junior News

Welcome back .

Students have settled back into their daily classroom routines and have even adapted to some changes.

Fluid Maths

One of the changes has been the introduction of Fluid Maths groups. The groups involve targeted teaching of students at their individual points of need. These occur three afternoons a week in the three Junior classrooms and may see your child working with one of the other Junior teachers. Topics we are covering this term are multiplication and division. Other areas of the numeracy curriculum will be covered in class-based maths sessions on the other two days.


A reminder that students do Rotations every Thursday. For library borrowing it is important that students have a library bag in order to borrow. Also, sports session requires appropriate sports footwear and clothing.

Unwell students

At this time of the year with the cold weather it is important to stay healthy, which can mean if a student is feeling very unwell they may need a day at home. Also, tissue box donations would be appreciated.


Classroom Insights are posted regularly on Seesaw. If you are not already connected to SeeSaw please see your student’s classroom teacher.

Looking forward to an exciting term,

Rowena, Shaun, Fiona and Tessa
