On Friday of Week 2, some of our Year 5 students took part in an interschool Numero competition.
Numero is a maths card game that requires players to create number sentences using all four operations, percentages, fractions and decimals! Year 5 have been playing this game all year, and on the last day of Term 3, we took part in a round robin competition to help select our two teams.
This was the first time St Emilie’s has ever competed in such a competition, and both of our teams did a fantastic job. We finished 8th and 11th out of 18 teams! The highlight of the day was our Gold team scoring the 3rd highest score in the SCRAMBLE TEAM TAKE round. I would also like to say a special thank you to the 6 stewards for the day, who helped with the running of the event, and a BRAVO to Holly who filled in for a different school!
We will all be much better for the experience and we can’t wait to improve on our finish next year! Well done guys!
This term, we have been learning all about Sustainability! In our HASS unit, we have looked at natural disasters, climate, endangered animals and investigated the things we can do to help make our planet a better place to live.
Our assembly was based on Endangered Animals. Each student chose a particular animal to research and create an art piece about. We had a great time learning about these beautiful creatures and what we can do to help them, and we hope we can play a small part in keeping them alive!
Here are some photos from the assembly. You can also click on THIS LINK to watch a video of our HISTORY by One Direction REMIX. Enjoy 🙂

As part of our HASS geography topic, students have been learning about different countries around the world. They created an online report about their country which included a recipe for a traditional type of food.
Students wrote the recipe as a procedure. They then looked at the ingredients required and ordered everything from Woolworths online while making sure they stuck to their $20 budget.
Students then prepared and cooked their foods in the staff room and served them to their family at open night!
Over the last few weeks, Five Blue have been working hard writing narratives for their buddies. They interviewed their buddies to ask what kind of characters and storyline they would like, before getting to work creating their story.
After completing a draft, students then created a good copy of their narrative on their macbooks complete with animations and voiceovers, and all of this happened with book week sandwiched in the middle! We can’t wait to share our finished stories with our buddies!
On Thursday 24th May, our Year Five’s went on an excursion to Fremantle to learn more about Australian history. Some of our stops included:
- The roundhouse, which was WA’s first prison
- A replica of the Dutch trading ship, The Duyfken, which carried goods to neighbouring countries like Indonesia, and explored some of Australia’s coastline in the 1600’s
- The Fremantle Prison, which we learnt was built by convicts along with other buildings around Fremantle and Perth.
- Monument Hill – where monuments stand to honour soldiers who have fought in wars throughout our history.
We had a fantastic day and we were all very thankful that the weather held off for our excursion. A HUGE thank you to our parent volunteers who helped make the day a safe and enjoyable excursion for all!
