'A bottle cap to a smile'
Just the Facts
It is an enjoyable work teaching Year 4 this school year. The students come from different backgrounds of education and nationality. They are willing to learn, to participate and share their wonderful ideas. The enthusiasm that students show for school and friends, and life in general, energizes our whole classroom and working atmosphere. These students have a tactful sense of humour and use it in class every day, which makes the atmosphere even more pleasant. Year 4 students arrive at school with a big smile each day, a good morning and they embrace new challenges with a positive attitude. Nice manners, respect and hard work is our motto! We are working on grasping new knowledge every day, being good and honest friends, respecting other’s space and time and sharing our thoughts and ideas in an appropriate manner. Over the school year, it is for sure that the students will still benefit from consistent, continued hard work to keep their academic skills strong.
In Year 5, we continue to build the foundations that will give students the tools to think critically, communicate effectively, and to succeed in the classroom. We have students from 7 different countries, which helps give us a broader worldview as we learn about the people and world around us. They have an enthusiasm for school, love to learn, and bring a positive spirit to Chartwell Primary. They are a special group of kids with tremendous talents, gifts, and personalities. It's privilege to be their teacher.
In year 6 with the onset of year 7 looming in the coming year, which acts as a passage way or an initiation to higher education, we focus on being able to operate independently. A major part of this process incorporates problem solving, analyzing, critical thinking, and also self reflection. The ability to successfully work through a problem and logically eliminate unneeded criteria is essential. We also encourage asking questions if needed, but when these questions are asked we do not simply reveal the answer, instead we direct the children is the proper location to find the solution. Urging them to utilize and demonstrate these skills we strive to develop. Most important is the classroom environment, cultivating an inviting atmosphere will definitely facilitate the learning process, and most importantly the retention rate. We want the children to enjoy coming to school and participating in lessons and discussions, we want them to feel comfortable participating without fear of objection.
