This term we are looking at Poetry in English. We have studied the differences between fixed and free verse poetry, while learning about some famous poets including Sylvia Plath and Dorothea Mackellar. We have enjoyed applying our understanding of figurative language to help us in both reading and writing our own poems. We have also been learning about rhythm patterns and rhyme scheme. Check out some of our samples below:
In Maths, we are studying viewpoints, the Cartesian Plane, financial maths and translations.
Leadership in action:
Last term, a group of Year 6 students met with the Early Childhood Team to discuss an ‘ideal’ cubby house. Our Naturescape Playground now features a ‘tiny town’ consisting of an ice cream shop, a house, a Police station and a fix- it shop. The Year 6s helped to determine the features of the cubbies as well as the physical appearance/colours etc. We were thrilled to visit the cubbies this week and see the planning process come to life!
We are incredibly proud of our school and all students involved in the Interschool Athletics Carnival last week. Our school won both the Interschool shield and the Team Games shield. We are also incredibly proud of Connor from our class, who received Runner Up Champion Boy for Year 6. Awesome work Connor!
