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 we are trying something completely new… designing and building houses in Minecraft! Students are planning, tweaking, building, breaking and fixing all sorts of different homes in a virtual space. We have also linked up with the site manager for the school’s renovation process to give students an insight into the world of construction! While everything is currently a work in progress, we are excited to see the finished products!

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.
