Kindergarten Blue and Red
Welcome to North Kalgoorlie Kindergarten. My name is Margaret Miller and I am the teacher for Red and Blue Groups at North Kalgoorlie Kindergarten. I love working at North Kalgoorlie Primary School and I believe that our biggest strength is the wonderful parents and children who make up our school community.
I have a qualification in Early Childhood Education and I have been teaching for 33 years. I started my teaching career in the Pilbara where I taught for 6 years before returning to the Goldfields in 1995. I have been lucky enough to have been a part of the wonderful team at North Kalgoorlie Primary School for nearly 25 years. The bulk of my teaching experience has been in Pre-Primary and Kindergarten. I find teaching and working with young children and their families to be an extremely rewarding profession. I love the energy and enthusiasm that little people bring to class with them each and every day and feel very privileged to be a part of their exciting learning journey through Kindergarten.

This term our class will be learning about nursery rhymes, ourselves and our families.
Term 1 is a settling in term for children as we introduce them to school routines and behaviours. The focus for English is for students to learn to take turns and follow instructions given to them by teaching staff. This term we will be introducing rhyme through songs and chants and also asking children to identify how many syllables are in words. We will also be working on name recognition and teaching children to start to write their name. Children will be encouraged at every opportunity to have a go at writing their name on their work.
The focus for Maths is number and the principles of counting. We will be working on recognising and reciting numbers to 5 and using 1-1 correspondence when counting out small collections. We will be making simple patterns, recognising shapes and colours and comparing collections of objects as to which has more or less. We will also be exploring the skill of “subitising” by using dice to play lots of fun and exciting games.
