Home Inquiry:
Read for 10 minutes. Reading is to be recorded in their diary.

In week 1 and 2, we have been focussing on the well-being of students and developing relationships between our class and cluster. We look forward to this continuing throughout the year as we grow and develop. Some of the learning intentions included understanding our school motto of ‘Believe Collaborate Achieve’, sharing who we are and what we enjoy, looking at who we trust and our support networks, cyber safety, growth mindset and essential elements of the PYP. We also worked though our essential agreement which is a class agreement about what will help us create a safe and positive environment.
Our ‘Who we are’ unit is focussed on changes that people experience at different stages of life. This will officially begin on Monday and will continue through to just after camp.


It was great speaking to parents at PIN last night. If you weren’t able to come, please read the notes that were sent home with your child. Please also read and sign the iPad agreement and fill in the short survey about your child.

 

We encourage parents to purchase a keyboard for iPads so students can learn to touch type. This will also be important for NAPLAN online this year.

 

Please remember that the Year 5/6 Camp is in Week 5 this term. We will be going to the Woodhouse Activity Centre from the 26th-28th of February. Please communicate any medical or dietary concerns with your class teacher. Forms will be sent home with all relevant information in the coming week.

We are asking that if you have not completed this, could you please do so asap so the P & F can discuss next meeting which is next Monday night at 7pm (all welcome to attend).

Week 3

Cluster Newsletter Term 1 Week 3

Home Inquiry:
Read for 10 minutes. Reading is to be recorded in their diary.

Inquiry- Our ‘Who we are’ unit is focussed on changes that people experience at different stages of life. Students have been looking at growth mindset and how the brain works. We have worked through identifying emotions and will be using this in the coming week. The week will kick off with the movie ‘Inside out’ as a springboard for our learning about emotions.

Maths – Students have begun their work with number, with a continued focus on the four operations.
Writing- Students will begin their learning on Narrative techniques, beginning on Monday. This will go through until about week 6 of this term.


We encourage parents to purchase a keyboard for iPads so students can learn to touch type. This will also be important for NAPLAN online this year.

 

App reimbursement

At the beginning of the year, students were charged $10 in their booklist for the school to purchase apps. Unfortunately, apple has changed the way they do things and won’t allow schools to purchase apps for students. This $10 will be refunded to parents through the school fees.

 

Please remember that the Year 5/6 Camp is in Week 5 this term. We will be going to the Woodhouse Activity Centre from the 26th-28th of February. Please communicate any medical or dietary concerns with your class teacher. Forms have been sent home with all relevant information. Although there is a waiver to be signed for the Woodhouse insurance, I can confirm that the school has a Student Accident policy with LCA Insurance.  Students are covered 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for the full year while engaged in school activities. Information and documentation about the cover is available at https://www.lcainsurance.org.au/policies/schools

Dear Parents & Caregivers of Year 5/6,

Welcome to 2020, we would like to introduce ourselves as your Class Carer’s for this year. We are Kylie Chinca (mum of Sophia 5/6P), Karen Tiller (mum of Bayley 5/6P) and Diane Mann (mum of Amee 5/6P).

Our role as class carer is to support families and teachers within our school community in times of crisis and need e.g. sickness & injury, hospitalisation, birth. We can provide support in practical ways such as meals for a family in need and are happy to help where we can.
If any parent or caregiver is interested in helping out as a class carer, we would love to talk with you about it further.
Thanks, and looking forward to the year ahead.
The Class Carers
