Welcome to Redwood Class
Our teachers are Mr Shillabeer and Mrs Hector. Mrs Emery is our class HLTA, but is also a teacher too!
In Redwood this year we have a straight Year 3 class.
What does learning in Redwood look like?
In Redwood Class we recognise that as we grow older it is important to take responsibility for our learning, behaviour and belongings. We enjoy learning a range of topics that help us to develop an understanding of the world and our locality. We continue to develop an understanding of the importance of our environment and the impact we as humans are having on it. We begin to understand the impact that people in the past, and how historical events impact on the way we live today.
In Redwood class we talk a lot about our emotions and mental wellbeing. We learn skills to help us identify things that trigger our emotions and strategies to deal with them. We also talk about how our ‘dinosaur’ and ‘brilliant’ brain controls our emotions and how we can retrain our brains to react differently.
We enjoy using Go-noodle to practise to dance, golden mile to practise our running skills and Cosmic Yoga to help our bodies feel calm and ready to learn.
At the end of each day we say our class prayer
Father hear us as we pray
Thank you for our happy day
For the friendships that we share
For love and compassion everywhere
