On Monday 29th February, the Year 5 and 6 classes were treated to a thought-provoking performance that presented ways we can manage our emotions when under pressure, without resorting to physical aggression. The idea that it is not only against the law to be violent towards others, but threatening other people is regarded as a type of abuse. After watching the performance, we came up with some helpful strategies to help ourselves and our our peers deal with situations we may find ourselves in when feeling angry or upset.
Some of our ideas included:
- Telling a trusted adult
- Doing something we love, to take our mind off the matter
- Going for a walk
- Taking some deep breaths
- Looking at things positively
There were a handful of lucky prize winners after question time who received a football to take home, but we all came away with some excellent strategies to keep us safe and help us to use our emotions in the most positive way we can.
All in all another great opportunity for some valuable reflection time!
On Tuesday 16 February, the Year Five and Six classes attended an excursion to Parliament House in Perth. The purpose of this excursion was to allow students to have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what ‘democracy’ is all about and to understand their role as active citizens who are able to vote and make decisions about issues affecting their lives.
The students had the opportunity to visit Parliament House where they learned about the Upper and Lower House. They also participated in a workshop on the three levels of government which supported them to identify the roles and responsibilities of the three levels of government in Australia: federal, state and local.
In another workshop, we participated in a ‘hands on’ activity which reinforced the importance of the voting process and the laws associated with this privilege.
Please find the first PP Grid for the next two weeks below. You are asked to please support your child by helping them to organise their time across the fortnight. This will involve timetabling their PP grid tasks and sporting and family commitments so that all can be achieved with the minimum of family angst and the maximum of student effort. Organisational skills are taught explicitly here at school and if reinforced at home will serve your child well leading into high school.
Thank you and have a great fortnight!
