Grade 5/6 Term 3 Week 3 & 4

Grade 5/6 Term 3 Week 3 & 4


Learning and Teaching 

READING: The students have been unpacking a new strategy, 'Determining Importance' through individual and group activities

WRITING: Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring the various types of poetry. We have started with Haiku poems and the 5-7-5 syllable structure. We look forward to seeing their new knowledge of figurative language in their poems. 
Also, 'Big Talk' homework will commence next week.

MATHS: The students have been enjoying the division unit and have taken responsibility for their learning by using the 'Priority Standards' to monitor their progress. This has allowed the students to see all the concepts in the division unit and work at their own pace.

Many students have been beating their own times during the speed tests for times-tables. It has been evident that many have been practising at home. Please continue to encourage your child to practise their times-tables at home every week.

INQUIRY: Our 5/6s have been very excited about the new inquiry unit and have started researching their chosen countries. All classes have had interesting discussions about the pros and cons of hosting the Olympics and the students have been enthusiastic to share their opinions.
