ROOM 8 OPENS
We are excited to open up Room 8 this term to help support the formative start to school for our new entrant students. Miss Judith Smith has been team teaching in Room 1 for the majority of last term and will be teaching in room 8 for the remainder of the year as our new 5 year old students start. It is great to see the focused and exciting learning going on with our new entrant students.

TEACHERS AS LEARNERS
Across the term break, as well as putting in preparation for the term ahead, staff also met to have some teacher learning time. We had a great day of professional learning on Friday 18 July. The focus of the day was "Effective Pedagogy". Pedagogy is the art and science of how we teach. It looks at our approaches to teaching and learning as well as the learning process. Our pedagogy is the foundation of how we approach teaching and learning at Newbury School.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES UPDATE 
 
With a flurry of events and activities recently, as a Board we would like to thank our learning community for their tremendous support. That support is not only at school or cluster events but also in your coaching/managing of teams and consistent support on the 
side-lines. 
 
We have received a lot of positive feedback to the refined 3-Way Interview process recently. Again, thank you for showing such interest in your child's learning and all being a part of this aspect of the learning process. 
 
We are fully supportive of the current teacher focus on professional development in writing and reading. Our teaching team are working through an exciting individual inquiry process to further our children's use of the editing and proof reading process. As a team, the teachers are also seeking to identify more clearly what makes for great teaching of reading.
