Oral Language Task

On the last day of term I handed out our next oral language task to all students (attached for your reference). I also did an example for students to model from. Part of the oral includes making a short powerpoint. Students that don’t have access to a computer at home will be provided with a short amount of time to do this powerpoint in class time. If you have any further questions, please send me an email.

Enterprise Day

Wow! What a successful Enterprise Day!

Student’s hard work and effort paid off. They did a fantastic job organising and working at their stalls. This was such a valuable learning experience. Students had the opportunity to handle and count money, sell and promote their goods and activities, create budgets and projected sales, communicate with customers and their teams, problem solve on the spot  and plan and organise all elements of their stall including identifying risks.

A very big thank you to the parents that helped on the day and to the parents that donated and helped prepare food and prizes. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Below, I have included a few photos from today and the advertisements that groups made to promote their stalls. They were too good not to show! If your student’s advertisement isn’t here, please feel free to come to the classroom to view.

Enterprise Day Preparation

Last week, students were very busy preparing for Enterprise Day (Some have also been very busy at home too). In groups, students had to prepare a brief, outlining their activity, safety considerations, group responsibilities and costs.  We have been learning about persuasive language. They have applied these skills to their posters and their advertisement they are making on iMovie. It has been wonderful to see great enthusiasm, communication, problem solving and collaboration from students within their groups.

Enterprise Day is this Wednesday from 12.30 – 2.00pm. When sales end at 2.00 pm, students will pack up their stall then head back to class for debrief activities relating to the day. They will be dismissed at the regular time of 3.10.

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday! It should be a wonderful afternoon.

Spelling Words

Due to the Easter public holidays and preparation for Enterprise Day, students will not be getting any new spelling words for the rest of the term. In class time, we will be revising what we have already learned this term. Students should use their spelling homework time to revise previous weeks words and patterns . These words are located in their diaries.

We had a great time on camp in week 8!

Students shared that their favourite parts about camp was playing the web of life game, the hike, the food, orienteering and looking at creatures under the microscope.

The top 4 things they learned about while on camp were macroinvertebrate adaptations, how to use maps, different bird species and the importance of team work.

Here are a few photos of some of the activities we participated in!

Class Election

It’s election time!

This week for our civics and citizenship unit we learned about democracy, what makes a good representative, what the three levels of government are and what their responsibilities are and how voting in an election works.

Today, we held a class election, voting in a class mascot. Students numbered the boxes on a ballot paper in order of their choice. Next, we used a preferential voting tool to count our votes to elect our candidate.

…and the winner by absolute majority was…

…Lucky Labrador!!!

If possible, I asked students to attend the polling booth with you tomorrow to get a better understanding about what we have been talking about in class. I will ask for volunteers on Monday to share something they found interesting.

Happy Voting!
