Welcome to our Open Night EXTRAVAGANZA Sneak Peek! – Ahnya & Mila
We have been working very hard in Year Five this term – Isla
This year we are going to be having a virtual version of Open Night because of social distancing requirements. – Mikelah
We think that having open night online is great fun and an efficient way to share our knowledge and work. – Oliver B & Riley
Wouldn’t it be so cool if you could see our classroom from your living room or kitchen counter? Isabel
You can revisit our virtual classroom any time you like! – Oakleigh
Our standard of work in Year Five has greatly improved to such a high standard over the year and we can’t wait to show you what we have been up to. – Chace
Shhhh! We don’t want to tell you too much about the Open Night just yet, but below is a sneak peek of some of our SPECTACULARLY EXQUISITE work. – Isabelle, Teyla & Aiyana
Harry C: WHOOOSH! I am already blown away!
Kadyn: It’s virtual and it’s awesome. So… It’s virtually awesome!
Ryder: I am not going to show you my work yet, because I don’t want you to faint because my work is so good!
Just a reminder to all families, that our Year 6 Environmental Committee offer the following recycling services to our school community.
Greenbatch Foundation partners with schools allowing students to collect their old PET plastic bottles through recycling, providing PET which is used in research and development for 3D printer filament. By recycling through Greenbatch we can save plastic from entering landfills, oceans and waste incinerators.
As from Term 3, our green and purple Greenbatch bins will return to the undercover area on Wednesday mornings. You are very welcome and encouraged to bring in your HDPE 2 and PET 1 plastics. PET plastic is the type found in drink bottles and food packaging such as strawberry punnets or peanut butter jars, and has the number 1 inside the recycling symbol.
We will also continue to offer our battery collection. The yellow battery bin will be placed out in the undercover area on Wednesday morning along with the Greenbatch bins. Please bring along your unwanted batteries and place them in the bin. Once the bin is 3/4 full we contact the City of Gosnells and the batteries are taken away for recycling.
If you bring your batteries or plastics to school on any other day you will find yellow battery bin in the undercover area and the purple Greenbatch bins parked up by Learning Hub.
Thank you for your continuing support and to our students for their efforts at contributing towards the health of the planet by conducting these recycling projects.
This term as part of our homework, we have started filling in nightly reading logs.
Our reading log has helped us to keep track of our nightly reading and make sure we do it every night. – Kadyn
Each morning we come into class and show our teacher our completed reading log. – Maria
It’s fun to do because we get to read aloud to our parents or siblings and it encourages us to read lots of books. – Maya
I have been reading to my mum, dad and brother and they have enjoyed hearing it. – Merrick
Here are some photos of Angelin’s fantastic reading log.
This week we had a visit from Life Ed in the Learning Hub.
We learnt about friendships and especially about what makes a good friend.
Gina set up lots of little games for us to work through in teams.
We also watched a video about some friends who were having a difficult time.
We learnt about what makes a friend respectful or disrespectful by putting some ideas in two columns.
At the end we finally got to see a very special visitor called Harold the giraffe. We also saw a photo of his Grandma!
We think this was a useful experience because it will help us with our friendships. We learnt a lot from this incursion.
Check out some photos from our sessions!
