This term, we have been learning all about Prayer. We have investigated how talking with God can help us develop spiritually. Recently, we looked at St Paul and the letters he wrote to others teaching about Jesus.
Here are some interesting things we discovered:
We know we can talk to God at any time, but we wondered what it might look like if God could talk back …
We are looking forward to wrapping up our RE unit by creating our own Prayer Booklets which we can use to talk to God, and to guide us as we grow older.
This week in Year Five, we have explored data representation and interpretation.
On Monday we learnt about Column and Bar Graphs.
On Tuesday we investigated Line Graphs.
On Wednesday we examined Pie Graphs.
On Thursday we reviewed the whole lot!
On Friday we thought we would have a break from graphs, but we were wrong! Mr Naden and Miss Corkhill surveyed us about our favourite type of graph. Then they graphed the results. Hmmm we wonder which graph won!
Our online learning plans in Year Five are jam packed, but before we can make a start on them, we need to make sure we prepare our bodies and minds each day.
So far this term, for morning fitness activities, we have taken part in Just Dance classes, Online Fitness workouts, PE with Joe videos and Yoga sessions. Today we also had the chance to join in with other schools in WA in a live stream of our fitness program, 15 a day!
Our sessions have got the heart racing, and the sweat dripping, because we all know, to have a fit and agile mind, we need to have a fit and agile body!

In Year Five we love to share book recommendations with each other. Sharing our recommendations encourages us to read a wider variety of text types and discuss books with our classmates.
Each of us have created a book review which is now displayed on our Bookflix wall in the Year Five wet area. Often you will find students reading these reviews and then borrowing those books from the library!
Check out some pictures of our display. We will keep adding to this throughout the year. If you ever need some book recommendations, pop by and have a look!

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!
