Feb 20

Very excited about the progress of daily 5 in the senior school; there’s a buzz in the classrooms and a common language being used by teachers and students. It’s not a structure that happens overnight; it takes time, patience and consistency. It goes without saying that high expectations, teacher support and guidance, well-organised learning spaces and strong routines will all help our students to become confident, independent readers and writers.

All the research shows that teachers who talk about the craft of teaching with their colleagues are the ones who grow and develop as learners themselves, who become more confident in their own abilities and are more prepared to take on new challenges, knowing they will be supported by their peers. Change does not happen without taking risks.

Feeling very proud of the team on their daily 5 learning journey!
