Room 6

Our Teacher Mrs Emily Ford

About Our Class Welcome to Room 6 at Eagle Point Primary School! Mrs. Ford is our teacher and our class is aided by Michelle Ryan and Ellyn McKenzie. We are very lucky to have a lovely class of 23 grade 5/6 students.

Being a senior student at Eagle Point Primary School is a rewarding and opportunity filled experience. There is an expectation that all senior students will take part in leadership roles in some form throughout the school year. A big focus is on the students becoming independent learners and taking responsibility for making opportunities for themselves. In this becomes the role of being a good role model for our future senior students.

At Eagle Point Primary School our students are fortunate to experience many interesting learning opportunities. Not only are they provided a curriculum that is needs fulfilling, engaging and targets their individual level, they have opportunities to be a part of a ‘Quality’ classroom and develop and display their leadership skills.

We see our classroom as a happy, supportive, challenging learning environment where students are able to explore, be creative and achieve success. As a class we have decided on some Expectations that are based around our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Care, Commitment and Inclusiveness. These Expectations will guide us in our classroom to be the best learners and people we can be.

The students in Grade 5/6 will be attending an amazing camp to Ballarat at the start of this year and will also have other opportunities to take part in leadership activities outside of the school as the year progresses.

Students are required to complete homework tasks each week. This will come in various forms including daily reading, spelling words, research, discussions, projects, pre-learning and other Literacy and Numeracy activities that directly relate to what we are doing in class at the time.

The year has already been very exciting as the students have settled in, built new relationships and re-connected with old friends from their classroom and across the school. We all look forward to working together and enjoying the learning, challenges and of course fun!

Remember the door is always open!
