Over the last five weeks we have been working on a Maths project called Market Garden.
In this project our goal was to find the most cost-efficient essentials to help grow our fruit & vegetables. This project came with a ‘must have’ list which had all the necessary items for our garden.
Another aspect of creating our garden, was shopping for all the items we needed. These items all came from well-known websites such as Bunnings, Australia Gardening, Aussie Gardener and more. These prices we found on the websites needed to be rounded to the nearest whole dollar.
This real-life project included creating a logbook and designing our very own garden, it also included real life measurements and the total prices of all the wood needed to create our garden beds.
We really enjoyed creating our Market Gardens with our magnificent Mr. Millar!

As part of our digital technologies curriculum, we are learning to code! Students are learning basic coding skills using the code.org website, in preparation for later in the term when they will be asked to build their own game based on our class novel!
“Coding is a fun way to learn new skills. It might help us create a new game or app!” – Harry & Lachlan
“Coding skills can help us in the future. It helps express our imagination and creativity and who knows, we might end up working at Google!” – Stella & Teyla

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 🙂
