speak. She encouraged teachers to be on ‘language alert’
meaning that we will encounter this kind of language
throughout our writing professional learning sessions. Vivien
acknowledged that we are working in a bilingual environment and encouraged teachers when unsure of a word or
what has been said to let us know, this will allow us to talk
our way to understanding.
Teachers were provided with a ‘reflective journal’ and Vivien
spoke about the concept of the ‘reflective practitioner’,
which ‘is a teacher who thinks in a particular way about their
practice’. Teachers were invited to write a reflection about
what writing looks likes, feels likes and sounds like in their
journals. This was a personal reflection, which was not shared.
Vivien went on to talk to about the assessment of writing.
She briefly explored how teachers assess writing and the
challenges of assessment schedules. Vivien reiterated that
the ‘our purpose is to build teacher skills in looking at their
Integrity Responsibility Harmony Respect Love of Learning
class’s writing and identifying the next learning for
their children’.
Chers parents et tuteurs,
Vivien introduced WA First Steps Writing Resource as
the resource we will use to build our understanding of
writing. She acknowledged that the resources might
be new for some people and a refresher for others.
First Steps is based on research that involved unassisted writing samples from children who were encouraged to write. Researchers observed children over
time and collated what they saw. This resulted in the
development of the six writing phases starting from
role-play to accomplish. These phases are based on the
‘average’ learner. Vivien spoke about the importance
of understanding that whilst most learners will go
through all stages, others will not. As teachers our role
is to ensure that the child’s ‘next learning’ is identified
along the continuum and is targeted to their needs.
Formation professionnelle sur l’expression écrite
Lundi, lors des formations professionnelles hebdomadaires adressées à l’ensemble de l’équipe de CJC, la consultante Vivien Smith a facilité le premier de trois ateliers
dédié à l’expression écrite. Toutes les formations à Caulfield Junior College visent à améliorer les pratiques professionnelles des professeurs et incluent des objectifs
d’apprentissage, des travaux de groupe ainsi qu’une approche réflexive.
Vivien spoke about ‘unassisted writing’ being the
‘window into children’s next learning’. She concluded
by making the connection between student’s learning
of writing to the reading and the books in classrooms.

The workshop was powerful and Vivien made many
connections to bilingual learning in a bi-national
school. We look forward to our next workshop.
Caulfield Junior College and French Section Elective
Integration
As you are aware a lot of work has been done in regards to the integration of the FSE into CJC. Tara Blanchy (School Council president) and Isabelle Le Bouder
(EFM president) will provide you with an update soon.
Stayed tuned!
Events in Nice.
The whole educative community of CJC would like to
express their support to the French community and
hope that your family and your friends are safe.
Books on wheels
Our French librarians on wheels were delighted to see
the composite classes engagement for French since
they started Lote lessons. The Australian classes discovered French literacy through storytelling and appreciated it!
100 days in Prep
We can't wait to see our preppie’s celebrating their
100 days at school on the 27th of July. For this unique
event, all the Prep and the teachers will be dressed up
and will have a parade at 9.00 am. (See page 5 for
more information.)

Les objectifs d’apprentissage:


Développer une approche globale d’enseignement
de la production d’écrit
Améliorer notre compréhension des motivations et
du processus de l'expression écrite
Augmenter notre panel de compétences pour améliorer les résultats des élèves en production d’écrit
Processus : Les professeurs ont été invités à échanger
leurs réponses à trois questions

Quelles sont nos bonnes pratiques actuelles ?

Quelles compétences souhaitez-vous approfondir ?

Comment développer une approche commune
dans l’enseignement de l’expression écrite ?
Vivien a parlé des difficultés de compréhension liées au
jargon du programme et des barrières que créent le vocabulaire spécifique. Elle a encouragé les professeurs à
être attentifs au langage que nous utilisons. Vivien a
reconnu que nous travaillons dans un environnement
bilingue et a incité les professeurs à vérifier systématiquement la bonne compréhension de nos élèves.
Les professeurs ont reçu un dossier destiné à analyser
leur pratique. Le but était de poser par écrit leur réflexion
sur leur approche de la production d’écrit en classe. Ils
ont dû décrire leur pratique, exprimer ce que représentait la production d’écrit pour eux et leurs élèves, leur
approche actuelle du sujet. Ce fut une réflexion personnelle qui n'a pas été partagée.
Ensuite, Vivien a abordé l'évaluation de la production
d’écrit. Elle s’est renseignée brièvement sur la manière
dont les professeurs évaluaient l'écriture et elle a parlé
également des défis des programmes d'évaluation.
Vivien a réitéré que notre but était d’améliorer les
compétences des professeurs dans ce sujet et d’identifier
les besoins de nos élèves.
Vivien a présenté une ressource documentaire de l’Australie de l’Ouest intitulée « First Steps » focalisant sur les
procédés d’écriture des élèves et les techniques inhérentes à développer. Cette publication est une référence
Integrity Responsibility Harmony Respect Love of Learning
connue en Australie. Elle a reconnu que ces documents pouvaient être nouveaux pour certains et un
rafraîchissement pour d'autres. First Steps est basé
sur les recherches autour d’échantillons d'écriture
spontanée (non corrigés ou orientés) d’enfants qui
ont été encouragés à écrire. Les chercheurs ont observé des enfants au fil du temps et ont assemblé ce
qu'ils ont vu. Ce travail de recherche a mené au développement de six phases allant du roleplay jusqu’ à
la production finale. Ces phases sont basées sur des
étudiants moyens. Vivien a souligné qu’il est important de comprendre que tandis que la plupart des
étudiants passeront par toutes les étapes, d'autres
n’en auront pas besoin. Les professeurs doivent comprendre qu’ils doivent adapter leur pratique en fonction des besoins de chaque enfant.
Vivien a insisté sur le fait que la production d’écrit
libre est le support nécessaire des professeurs pour
comprendre les besoins de l’enfant pour progresser.
Elle a conclu que l’écriture est bien sûr liée à la lecture.
L'atelier fut fédérateur et Vivien a pris en compte les
spécificités de l’apprentissage bilingue dans une
école Binationale. Nous attendons avec impatience
notre prochain atelier.
Intégration de Caulfield Junior College et de la section
Française
Comme vous le savez, un long travail est en cours
autour de l’intégration de la FSE vers CJC.Tara

Bouder (présidente d'EFM) vous informeront des

Evènements de Nice : L’ensemble de la communauté
éducative de Caulfield Junior College souhaite exprimer son soutien à la communauté française et espère
que votre famille et vos proches sont en sécurité.
Le Van du Livre : Nos bibliothécaires français furent
ravis de découvrir la motivation des sections australiennes pour le français depuis qu’ils ont débuté leurs
cours de FLE. Les élèves australiens ont découvert la
littérature française à travers le récit d’histoires : ils
ont adoré !
100 days in Prep : Nous sommes impatients de célébrer les 100 jours des Grandes Sections le 27 juillet
prochain. Pour cet évènement unique, tous les élèves
de prep seront déguisés, ainsi que leurs professeurs,
et défileront dès 9h à l’école. (see page 5 for more

Letter from the Art Room
22nd July 2016
Dear Parents,
Our sculpture sessions are well under way and
the students are enjoying exploring papier mache and Modroc constructions, as well as learning about relief sculpture and Art Deco design.
The Grade 5 and 6 are practicing drawing a 2D
design and applying it to their 3D model. Students in the junior school have made Salt dough
together and are constructing little mobiles with
pendants and beads to hang in their room.
Thank you to all the families who provided cardboard boxes for construction. We now have
plenty for the term. Items we are collecting this
term for our future projects will be:
Old Newspapers (lots please!)
Pre loved and no longer needed knitting needles.
Stockings
Bottle tops and little lids
Thanking you in advance,
Melissa Wright – Art Teacher
