This week in 5G we shared our fables with our 1G buddies! – Abbey
In Year Five we have been learning about fables. We have read many fables, annotated some, learned about the structure and language features of fables, and then we wrote our own. – Sophie
The process was:choose a moral, plan our fable, write our fable, edit our fable and then publish our fable. – Blake
Using Book Creator, we published our fables online. – Maria
It was fun to share with our buddies because we got to teach them about writing and using the iPad. – Tyson
We are planning to see our buddies for a reading session every Tuesday afternoon and we can’t wait! – Ethen

Last Friday we performed at the first assembly of 2020. We had a great time preparing our performance which showcased both our current focus on fable writing and our identity unit which is all about our emotions. Check out some photos from our rehearsals and the big day!

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!
