It has been a busy start to the year for 5/6B. We offically handed our new School Captains and Counsellors their leadership badges for 2020. The class has settled well into their new routines and are excited for the year ahead.
5/6B will be studying a range of different topics this term. In English, our focus will be on the power of persuasion with an emphasis on Persuasive writing. Students will be writing on a range of areas, along with some good old fashioned debating! For Mathematics, we will be learning a variety of strategies when we study Addition and Subtraction. Students will learn about the Jump, Split and Compensation strategies. Ask your children how to demonstrate this at home in the next few weeks.
We will also be covering Australian Colonies and Australia's System of Governments in HSIE which the students are looking forward to studying in more detail. 5/6B are very lucky to have Ms Edwards teaching them Robotics and STEAM every Thursday where they will be working on their collaboration and technology skills. This is just some of the amazing things happening in our classroom this term. If you have a spare moment, drop in and say hi to the class.
