Year 3 teachers welcome families to Weetangera Primary. This year, we are located in Unit 4. We look forward to getting to know your children and meeting you all. The teachers in Year 3 are:
*Natarsha van den Boogaard (Mon- Thurs) and Marianne Foley (Friday)
*Danielle Godwin (Mon- Wed) and Lauren Domio (Thurs- Fri)
The unit is a busy, authentic and fun place to be with an emphasis on working and learning together. The core curriculum will be taught by the classroom teachers as individual classes and as a whole unit. Daily learning experiences will involve a growth mindset to develop all students ability to be resilient, positive, see a mistake and problem as an opportunity to solve, and communicate their thinking through a growth mindset lens. Students will also understand what it means to embrace the four C’s of, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication, which align with the school’s core beliefs that every child should be Literate, Numerate and Resilient. As a school, we celebrate these four C’s during assemblies when students may receive an award.
The students will have the opportunity to visit the library to borrow and return books on Thursdays. Every Wednesday, students will have the opportunity to engage in Music, French, Science and PE with the specialist teachers.
Highlights throughout the year are sporting carnivals (swimming, cross country and athletics), the year 3 camp at Warrumbui, hosting assemblies and the end of year concert.
Regular SeaSaw updates will be sent out to keep you up to date with current learning.
We are excited about the year ahead and look forward to working alongside your child to enhance their learning.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions throughout the year..
