Welcome to Term 2. Year 5 has been extremely busy preparing for NAPLAN testing. We have been practising very hard, using previous years’ tests in reading, writing, language conventions and numeracy. Next week we vet our skills and knowledge against children from all over Australia. We’re quite sure that we will do well.
This term, we welcome Miss Fucile to 5G. She is an intern teacher from Curtin University, doing her final prac. She will be with us for the whole term.
Wednesday morning, we participated in an incursion run by the Electoral Education Commission. It was very interesting and gave us a better understanding of the unit of work that we have been learning about.
In Health and Design and Technology, we are learning about food and nutrition. Although we have just started the unit of work, we are enjoying the activities and are learning a great deal about the topic.
Last week, we were paired up with Pre Primary Buddies. These will be our buddies for the rest of the year. We did a great ‘getting to know you’ activity and look forward to lots of fun times with them.
