Term 1 2021

Welcome to 5/6D with Ms Dufficy

All students have settled quickly into the expectations and routines of our class. Here is a glance of what we have been up to so far this term.

·         We started reading our shared novel, ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ by Tom McLaughlin

·         Daily speed drills/Numeracy Ninjas and Mathematics lesson

·         In History we are learning about Federation in preparation of our excursion to Canberra later in the year. (fingers crossed)

·         Our unit of study in Science is ‘It’s Electrifying’. A visit from Rumbalara’s Bright Sparks Energy Trailor will support this.

Things to remember

Punctuality - School begins at 8.55am daily. Students who arrive after this time must go to the office for a late pass.

Important days in the week - 

Library: Monday      Sport: Friday

School Website and School App - Our School website is constantly being updated with new information so it is important to check it regularly for updates. The school app is free and can be downloaded through iTunes.


Students are unable to share equipment so it is necessary for students to bring to class -

  • a ruler with millimetres (no metal or bendy ones please), lead pencils, blue, black and red pens, (simple biro pens with no fancy attachments please as they tend to be distracting), large scissors, glue, sharpener, eraser and coloured pencils enclosed in a small pencil case. Large pencil cases take up too much room on desks. Please label all items.
  • Water bottle.
  • Please provide a box of tissues for the class to use. Thank you to those families who have done so already.
  • Note: no liquid paper / whiteout.

Homework - In preparation for high school, homework is able to be completed online through Google Classroom. For those students without computer access, paper copies can be given. Homework is to be returned to class teachers by Friday morning. Homework includes:

  • Home Reading: Reading material does not have to be limited to books but can include ReadTheory, magazines, newspapers and is to be for enjoyment. Reading logs must be signed by a parent at least once a week.
  • Spelling: Students write out their words four times a week.
  • Mathematics – Prodigy involving problem-solving tasks or times table multiplication facts for practise.

Stage 3 Camp – Canberra. TBA

I look forward to working with you child this year.
