Year 5 & 6
Welcome to our new page dedicated to some of the great work our students in Year 5 and 6 are doing!
Throughout the year we will cover many new areas of learning. To begin with, students will go back in time to look at some Victorian history, with a particular emphasis on the Gold Rush (this includes a wonderful day out at Sovereign Hill). As we move further into 2019, students will get an opportunity to participate in our ‘Campaigns’ program, a Design and Creativity unit (potentially involving a bit of Minecraft!) and finally the 5/6 area will transform towards the end of the year for ‘My Classroom Economy’.
Our students are continuing to discuss and develop their understanding of having a growth mindset. Like everyone, we like to see our students smiling and building resilience before they move into the next part of their education. In previous years, we have conducted a Positive Design Project. When the school renovations have been completed, we hope to revive this program and share the exciting concepts which have been created!
Technology is a big part of our learning in the 5/6 area. This year, we have been lucky enough to purchase a brand new fleet of laptops. Our students also make full use of Google's educational services, including the recently updated Google Classroom. It's a convenient place for students to manage their learning, submit work and ask their teacher for support while out of school hours. We love it and the students do too!
