WELCOME TO BARTON - MRS BRONWYN SELFE

'All For One and One For All.’

Welcome to Team Barton with Mrs Bronwyn Selfe. We have a very exciting and productive year ahead of us all. We will be setting our own personal goals to strive towards each semester as our class motto is ‘All For One and One for All.’ We will display these goals to ensure we stay motivated this year.  

I am looking forward to working with your child and setting expectations for class work and behaviour. I will be testing children to get a thorough understanding of where each child is in order to deliver meaningful programs for all students. The children will be given clear expectations in regards to Stage 3 behaviour and expected book work for Year 5/6 and I am sure they will easily adapt to these standards.

As Assistant Principal for Stage 3, I have an exec day off class which incorporates my general RFF (release from face-to face) as well as additional executive duties. During this day, Barton will have their library and technology lessons and will also be taught by Mrs Vicky Watt. There will be the same behaviour and bookwork expectations to ensure continuity.

In Semester One, Stage 3 will be studying The Australian Colonies in History, Forces and Energy in Science as well as Coding in Technology. Maths will be class based with all students catered for their individual needs. Throughout our Literacy program students will be working on a range of texts, covering Imaginative, Informative and Persuasive writing.

Homework will be handed out on Monday and is due back each Friday. This will consist of both Literacy and Maths. Homework is an excellent way of your child sharing their work with you, as well as encouraging good study habits. 20 minutes of reading just before ‘lights out’ at night is a great way of ensuring students are reading every day.
