Before we start out Move to Federation Unit in History the students were each given a decade in Australia’s history to research.
They had to decide on the key events in that decade and create a poster to feature these events. The students then presented their poster and spoke about the key events of the decade to the class.
Here are their posters:
A couple of 6L students went to Barwidgee Lodge on Tuesday afternoon and shared their readers with the residents.
There were lots of smiles and the residents were very happy to see and hear from the students. The students did a great job introducing themselves to the big group then sitting with residents to share their readers and some stories of the past. The students were treated to some lovely cake before they headed back to school.
Well done to the Heidi, Jessica and Riley!
This week during our Reading Group Rotations the students worked in teams to present a Drama item.
They had to create an imaginary invention and then present an advertisement to help sell their product to the class.
Here is the Dahl group presenting their amazing invention called “Robot 999274619999…..”.
The features include:
- Really pretty
- Fully metal with human-like skin
- Rude and offensive
This week the students have been learning to work with programming language to get a robot to follow commands.
They used a program called mBlock.
“I learned programming and how to work as a team to solve problems” – Olivia
“I learned that if you put in the wrong commands you need to update your program and reload it” – Breanna
Mother’s Day is this weekend so the class got to visit the Mother’s Day stall to buy their mother a gift for her special day.
6L will be starting Reader Circles this term and this week they received their new books that they will be studying.
Their first activity was to write a prediction on what they think their book is going to be about.
Many students had heard of the books before (or seen the movie) so they were encouraged to be creative. They did a fantastic job.
Enjoy reading them!
Over the last couple of weeks the students have been working on their Narrative Writing skills.
This week we have discussed the importance of grabbing the reader’s attention so that they want to keep reading our story.
Here are some of the initial ideas from 6L…
