Welcome to Room 1
In 2017, Room 1 is home to a fantastic group of Year 5 & 6 children. There are 13 girls and 10 boys. We are part of the Totara syndicate, which is the senior team at Coatesville School. So, as seniors we are very aware that we are role models for the younger children.
Mr van Dam is the Room 1 teacher and he is new to Coatesville School this year. He lives in Dairy Flat and has taught at Dairy Flat School.
You are welcome to come and visit our classroom. We would love to show you our 'Brag Wall' which displays our learning.

Totara Homework Expectations - 2017
Project based learning
Around two projects per term, which will link to current classroom learning or problem solving and thinking skills. These will be completed in their Homework Scrapbooks. If students desire, these can be presented on Brag Wall’s.
Task outlines will be sent digitally, but students can print and glue copies of this into their Homework Scrapbooks if they like.
