It certainly was an absolute delight to see our Year 6 students enter the classrooms after what has seemed quite a long break. We have missed them! The students are to be congratulated on their effort and enthusiasm in completing the Home Learning Tasks that were set for them and we have been enjoying reading their wonderful work. Some great initiative and responsibility was shown.
Year 6 have commenced creating short films using Movie Maker in ICT with Mr Carl Ohlson. We will continue our work with Cyber Safety next week and students will be working on their E-Licences. This will be part of the homework and then be followed up on in class. We encourage you to discuss this process with our child and ask what they are learning each week.
Once again, we were fortunate to have the author, Sarah Brennan come and speak to our students and read her new book, ‘Desmond the Dog’. It was wonderful to see our students ask inquisitive questions about the writing process. There are writing competitions on the Sarah Brennan website that our students are able to enter.
In PE, training for Athletics is well underway as well as our Cross Country event up on the Peak. Our kids certainly are busy! We look forward to meeting with you over the next two weeks at Parent/Teacher Interviews to discuss how your child is settling into Year 6. If you have not already arranged a time, the booking line on the OLP is now closed so please contact your classroom teacher directly.
If you are interested in being a Class Parent Representative for 2018, we would love to hear from you as there are still some positions available. Please contact your class teacher.
Science in Year 6
Week 5 has certainly found us back into full swing of our learning and the classrooms have been buzzing! Science has started off with a bang! This term, our unit is on Microorganisms and we have commenced our first experiment in class. Be ready to hear more about these at home.
What I have most enjoyed doing in Science this week was using different types of moisture with bread to find out what creates the most mould. (Matilda 6B)
I loved being able to do my own science experiments with the bread and I can’t wait until I can look at my mouldy bread in the microscope. (Joel 6B)
My favourite thing that I did in Science was testing what is the best temperature for the yeast to work in. (Denver 6B)
