We had an amazing time today listening to the author and illustrator Kim Lardner. He had very funny stories to share and had the whole 5/6 in hysterics.
This week the kids participated in a numeracy incursion. Below are the pictures.
Can you believe that we're over half way? Another busy week. We've started looking at discussion texts and their structure. In the coming weeks we will be writing our own. This term we've been looking at globalisation and the ethical dilemmas it brings. We have started a project on this topic. In maths we've been looking at multiplicative thinking and converting mass. For more information about our week- see your child's website.
A reminder that next Tuesday is a curriculum day so no students are to be at school. Wednesday is athletics for some students. Thursday we have a 2 hour maths incursion and on Friday is our usual Peer Support sessions. Another big week to come!
5/6C worked hard last term creating their own books in Italian. Below is the link to their work:
To celebrate book week this year there will be a special dress up day and parade. Please find the note below. This will be coming home in hard copy in the coming weeks.
And the kids just keep getting better! A very well done to all the 5/6s this week with another successful session of Peer Support. Below are some pictures of them in action!
