A Reflection on Learning in 2021http://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/A-Reflection-on-Learning-in-2021.aspxA Reflection on Learning in 2021<p>​<br></p><p>As we rapidly approach the end of the year; it is timely to reflect on all the wonderful learning that has taken place throughout 2021 at St Peter's. We began the year focusing on developing high quality Australian curriculum aligned teaching and learning experiences that reflected where the students were at in their learning and their next steps. In addition, we placed a spotlight on developing assessment capable learners. Teachers participated in professional learning to support them to build the skills in students that allowed them to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. From here we narrowed our focus, with an explicit improvement agenda of developing problem solving skills in numeracy. It has been wonderful to be in classrooms and see the students so engaged and challenging themselves to apply the skills they have learnt throughout the year. Students from Prep- Year 6 confidently apply the FISH acronym to help them work successfully through mathematical word problems. It was fantastic to see the progress Year 3 and Year 5 students made in the 2021 NAPLAN Online testing but also the student progress across the school.<br><br>In addition, the Early Years have been focusing on the development of oral language, pre-reading skills and targeted guided reading lessons to support reading and comprehension. Next year St Peter's will have an increased focus on reading across all year levels. More information will follow in 2022 and the explicit improvement agenda will be shared early Term 1.</p><p>​<img src="/community-news/PublishingImages/learning2021a.jfif" alt="learning2021a.jfif" style="margin:5px;width:572px;" /><br>​<br></p>

Our thanks to the Prep team for facilitating such a supportive and welcoming process. This orientation process has allowed a more personalised and supportive orientation to our school. We look forward to greeting our fourth and final group next Tuesday. 2022 Prep parents will join us for a Parent Information session on 25 November, thank you to the P&F for providing refreshments for this event.</p><p><br></p><p>During our orientation sessions, each 2022 Prep student receives a special pack, containing:​<br></p><ul dir="ltr"><li dir="ltr"><p>A St Peter’s calico library bag</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>An alphabet desk plate, to encourage letter knowledge and name writing</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>‘Good Night, Sleep Tight’- a picture book used extensively in the first weeks of Prep when learning about rhyme and other concepts of phonological awareness.</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>Information about St Peter’s including fee schedule, OSHC and Parent Code of Conduct</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>2022 book list</p></li><li dir="ltr"><p>High frequency words</p></li></ul><p>At the conclusion of the morning, our new Preppies also receive a special certificate that welcomes them to our St Peter’s Community.<br></p><p>Upon confirmation of enrolment this year, 2022 Prep families received an important booklet detailing information relevant to a successful start to schooling.

School TV Report - Managing Overwhelmhttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/School-TV-Resource.aspxSchool TV Report - Managing Overwhelm<p></p><p><p>Due to the pandemic, the world we now live in is a very different place. The hyperconnected nature of our current environment means that we are constantly being reminded of the challenges we face via numerous media and social media channels. Our connectivity to the digital world exposes us to a barrage of messages that can leave us feeling overwhelmed. As a result, many children and their parents are reporting higher levels of stress and anxiety.<br><br>Unfortunately, our brains have not evolved fast enough to adapt to this digital landscape. The combination of constant access to information and having little control over the situations presented, can be stressful and overwhelming. It is therefore important for adult carers to check in with their children and be aware of what information they may have been exposed to. It may not necessarily be the information itself that is harmful, but more their inability to process and make sense of it. Providing children with the skills and strategies to cope will enable them to flourish and thrive, socially, emotionally and academically.<br><br> This Special Report suggests a number of strategies to help manage any feelings of overwhelm that you or your child may be experiencing. We hope you take a moment to reflect on the information offered, and as always, we welcome your feedback. If this raises any concerns for you, a loved one or the wellbeing of your child, please seek medical or professional help.<br><br></p><p> Here is the link to your special report: <a href="https://stpeterscaboolture.qld.schooltv.me/wellbeing_news/special-report-managing-overwhelm" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">SPECIAL REPORT: Managing Overwhelm School</a><br></p></p> <p></p><p style="text-align:center;">​​​<br></p>
