Year 5

What a whirlwind of learning this term has been already! We have hit the ground running and tried very hard to embrace all the learning opportunities Mrs. Renton has been presented us with.

In Mathematics we have been looking at Place Value and representing numbers in different forms.

In Religion we have been celebrating the gift of our bodies and discussing how God wants us to use our bodies to communicate love and goodness

In English we have been exploring language conventions in preparation for Naplan, and in Shared Reading we are reading an entertaining novel by Roald Dahl  called ‘Matilda’. In Handwriting we are working towards attaining our ‘Blue Pen’ licences. In order to achieve our licence, we have to demonstrate that we can consistently write fluently and neatly in blue pen.

In Integrated Studies we have been participating in team building activities to enhance our ability to work cooperatively with others; and we have started designing a personal coat of arms, that represents the uniqueness of our individual selves.

We are also super delighted to have our new HP touch screen laptops. The one-to-one laptop program we have in our classroom, enables us to embed technology into all that we do, on a daily basis, and we feel privileged to be using this tool to assist us with our learning.
