Hi and welcome to the 5/6 team blog for the last fortnight of Term 3!
Where to begin…So many positive first time experiences were had by all, even the teachers! From experiencing Eureka Sky Deck (Edge) 88 stories high above the city skyline to riding on trams to the Melbourne Star and walking the interesting laneways of Melbourne. It was great to see the looks on our students faces when they conquered a fear, experienced something new or just had a go. The behaviour was super and our school values shone through. The staff on camp were impressed with the way our students represented CSPS in such a positive way. If we were to change anything, we would make it longer! Thank you to Mr Hanson for organising such an engaging and brilliant camp.
Our students are feeling very inspired about their Immigration Inquiry topic since our visit to the Immigration Museum on camp. During the holidays we would like the students to begin creating their costumes and if they haven’t already, make a suitcase. The suitcase only needs to be the size of a shoebox, which the students have seen an example of. We will be showcasing our learning early term 4, date and time TBA.
Please make sure you have returned your Compass notes to enable you to log on and reflect on your child’s understanding with the Learning Task that was completed as a pre-test on fractions. A post-test will be completed and you will be able to see your child’s growth. Once you have returned your note you will receive a log in and information booklet that will guide you to access your child’s Learning Task.
As a follow up to our measurement unit we have just completed, we would love parents to use vocabulary such as attributes, length, width, height, millimetres, centimetres, metres, kilometres, hectares, area and perimeter whilst you are out and about on day trips. This will build confidence and knowledge, and embed the concepts deeper.
Hats at recess and lunch are now compulsory.
