Learning and Teaching 
READING: The students have been revising all of the reading strategies and select appropriate strategies to deepen their understanding of the text. 

WRITING: The writing focus has been on the structure and features of a narrative. Students have been achieving their writing goals through the weekly 'Big Write.'They have also enjoyed using VCOP games to improve their vocabulary.
MATHS: We have continued the maths unit 'Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.' Students have been becoming increasingly confident with ordering, converting and placing all elements on a number line.

INQUIRY: And they're off! The groups have shown determination, organisation and enthusiasm with their inquiry projects. Each group has been incorporating ICT, using programs and apps such as iMovie, Canva, Book Creator, Piktochart and Prezi.
