Term 2

This term the Grade 5/6 students will be investigating democracy and government. This will be supported with an excursion to Parliament House and The Old Treasury Building in Week 2. Whilst at Parliament House the children will be participating in a role play to explore how the House of Representative is run. Students will complete a project on an Australian Prime Minister.

Students will be working on persuasive writing, biographies and explanation texts. They will continue to build on their planning, drafting, editing and revising skills. During reading students will begin to participate in literacy circles and will continue to explore non-fiction and fiction text structures.

This term students will be building their understandings in Statistics and Graphing, 2D and 3D shapes, angles, as well as Fractions, decimals and percentages.

Inter-school Sport
Students will be participating in winter Inter school sports in Term 2, through Football, Soccer, Netball or T-Ball. Round 1 will start in week 3 and games will be played on Friday mornings.

Thank you for your support. We are looking forward to another fun filled term. If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher.
