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!
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!

Have a great week!
Our fruit of the Holy Spirit focus this term has been LOVE. We talked about how Jesus showed love to others, and provided different examples of how we show love at home and at school.
We used our five senses to brainstorm what LOVE might be like, and used these ideas to write an IMAGERY poem. We then decorated our work by creating little love hearts using coloured paper to form the shape of a tree.
We LOVE the finished product and are so happy with how they look in our class. We hope you like them too 🙂
Each day we do silent reading after lunch to help calm us down after a busy lunch time. – Natalia and Ahnya
Silent reading helps to improve our reading skills, our vocabulary for speaking and writing and it gives us time to get through as many books as we can. Mikelah and Lachlan
Each Monday we go to the Library and borrow two books. – Teyla
We borrow one reading book of our choice and one Lexile book which is a book that is specifically targeted to our current reading abilities. – Ryder, Aiyana and Isaiah
After we finish our Lexile book, we complete a quiz which tests our comprehension and understanding of the text. – Charlotte and Abbey
We usually sit outside to get some fresh air while we read our books and find a nice spot near no one else. – Louis and Julien
We love reading books and hope to read many more in Semester Two! – Maria, Elijah

Today we had inter-house cross country and Years Three to Six participated out on the school ovals. – Abbey
The Year Threes and Fours ran 1km and the Year Fives and Sixes ran 1.1kms. – Jack
We had a great time running our hearts out with our friends. We all had to persevere to get to the finish line! – Nathanael
Meanwhile, everyone else in the faction bays cheered the runners on. – Tyson
We are really proud of ourselves for finishing the race with a smile. – Sienna
Whenever someone needed some extra encouragement, we made sure to cheer for them, even if they were in a different faction. It was great to hear the house chants! We can’t wait for the athletics carnival in Week 9!
Check out some photos that Mrs Cogger took of us having the best time.
This week Mrs Cogger provided some interesting Science Activities to celebrate NAIDOC Week. Across Australia NAIDOC Week is usually celebrated in schools in the last week of Term 2. This year due to the COVID pandemic, NAIDOC week was moved to November. However, many schools went ahead with their plans to celebrate in week 10 just as they always do.
The Year 2 and 3 students learned of a Noonjar Dreaming Story that tells us how the Southern Cross was formed.
The Year 4B students learned about the Noonjar season of Makuru and explored the bushland to look for signs that Makuru has started.
The Year 5B students made Aboriginal digging sticks used for digging up bloodroot, yams, honey ants and Witchetty grubs.
The Year 6 students learned about Aboriginal engravings and rock art. After observing many different forms of art, the students created a shield with symbols of their own Dreaming Story.
