Year 5 & 6

 

Welcome to our new page dedicated to some of the great work our students in Year 5 and 6 are doing!

Inquiry

This term has focused on Australia's closest neighbours in Asia. We have learned about temples, manufacturing, languages, currencies and cultures. Research and mapping has been very important. Our students now have a much better understanding of where countries are situated in Asia, stretching from Iran to Bhutan and beyond!

Meanwhile at home, students have been working diligently on various activities related to Asia. We've been fortunate to see fabulous dioramas, kites, reports, creative drawings and videos all dedicated to the marvels of the Asian continent.

Positive Education

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. This fantastic project will return in 2019!

Google Classroom

Our students make full use of Google's educational services. Homework is delivered through their online Classroom platform. 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!

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
