The Pre-Primary students have settled into full time school very well. All the children are keen to learn new concepts and play with their friends.
At St Joseph’s we are focused on developing the children’s resiliency, problem-solving, social and emotional skills. As well as developing these skills we are working towards achieving the outcomes outlined in the Western Australian Curriculum. This holistic view towards education has resulted in our school following an Investigative Learning Approach in our classrooms.
In Literacy the children have been working towards identifying the sounds letters make, writing those sounds and orally blending three sounds together to make a word. In Maths the children have been developing their mathematical language and practicing their counting skills.
This term the children have attended various school assemblies and Masses. They have also taken part in swimming lessons, which all children participated in wonderfully. During our WestOz Wildlife incursion the children were given the opportunity to hold or touch a variety of Australian animals including a dingo, koala, snake and lizard. The children learnt information about the animals, as well as the importance of looking after our creatures.
