In Year Five we have been learning all about angles!
We have explored angle classification and angle measuring through some cool activities like poster making and taping tables. Check out our fun below!
Last Friday we celebrated ANZAC Day as a school community.
In Year Five we read a special text called ‘In Flanders Fields’ by Norman Jorgensen & Brian Harrison-Lever.
The text tells the story of a soldier who, on Chirstmas Day saw a red robin tangled in wire struggling to get free in No Man’s Land. He risked his life to free the bird as the enemy watched on.
This text was the centre of a literature focus afternoon where we answered lots of questions about this great story. It also inspired us to create an ANZAC war medal in teams.
Check out some of our responses below!

The 2021 Inter-School swimming carnival was held on Tuesday 23rd March at Aqualife Aquatic centre.
The St.Emilie’s swim team had been in training since the beginning of the term, with excellent numbers attending training sessions at Riverton Leisureplex.
We would like to say a big ‘Thank You” to all the parents that were able to get their children to and from the training sessions throughout this term.
We understand how difficult this can be, especially so early in the morning.
The carnival itself was a huge success for St.Emilie’s.
Previously our best finish was 3rd position from 5 schools.
On Tuesday we finished in 2nd Position, from 6 schools.
The attitude, effort and the way our students cheer and support each other during Inter-School events is second to none.
While it was a huge team effort to finish in second position, we had a number of students receive individual medals for the day.
Nalo was runner up champion boy in year 4, Olaf was champion boy in year 5 and Nathanael was runner up champion boy in Year 6.
We would also like to thank all the parents that attended to support us on the day.

Last week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Australian Electoral Commission.
Each class had a different facilitator and they taught us all about the government. This aligned perfectly with our current HASS unit.
Our favourite part was learning about voting because we got to hold a real life vote using secret ballots and ballot boxes.
We voted for our favourite chocolate, which after a long process of counting the votes, was kit kat in both of our classes!
Check out some photos from our sessions.
Attached is the Inter-School swimming carnival order of events.
There are no specified times for each race.
We will be aiming to begin the carnival at 9:30am.
We hope to have presentations completed by 2:00pm
A reminder that the bus will be departing St.Emilie’s at 8:40am on Tuesday morning.
Parents are most welcome to attend and support our students.
