Grade 5/6 Term 3 Week 7 & 8

Grade 5/6 Term 3 Week 7 & 8


Learning and Teaching 
READING: Our focus has been on developing higher order questions before, during and after reading a text.

WRITING: The students have been writing information reports over the past two weeks. They have chosen topics or current events and have become an expert! Many students have shown passion for social justice through their chosen topics and are inspired to spread their knowledge with others.
MATHS: We have started the new maths unit 'Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.' Growth mindset has been very prevalent during the maths sessions, with students working through challenging activities using growth mindset language and problem solving strategies.

INQUIRY: Students have been exploring the geography of their chosen country, using Google Earth, Google Maps and atlas. They have started comparing the landscape of their country of choice with Australia and making notes for their project. All groups have demonstrated teamwork and enthusiasm during our inquiry sessions. We look forward to seeing all their research and ideas come together!
