Term 1 2021

Welcome to 5/6H

The students have all settled in quickly to their new expectations and routines. Here is what we have been up to so far this term.

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

·         Daily speed drills and Numeracy Ninjas are completed before our focus 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 Trailer will support this.

Housekeeping

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: Wednesday                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.

Equipment

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.
  • 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: Most students in Stage 3 are independent readers who can choose their own books from home and from the library. Reading material does not have to be limited to books but can include magazines, newspapers and is to be for enjoyment. Students must bring in their reading logs, signed by their parents at least once a week.

Spelling -  students write out their words four times a week, ideally each day.

Mathematics - times table multiplication practise or problem-solving tasks.

Stage 3 Camp -  Canberra - TBA

Clothing

Please ensure all clothing especially hats and jumpers are clearly labelled.

 

Absences

It is a Departmental of Education requirement that parents provide a letter explaining a child’s absence from school. Any leave (short or long term or partial ie; part of a day) must have the approval of the Principal. A letter beforehand will assist.

 

Medication

Asthma medication should be kept in the student’s schoolbag and the office, and class teachers need a copy of the Asthma Management Plan prepared by your doctor. All other medication MUST be kept at the office and parents will need to complete a medical indemnity form giving details of doses and times. If your child has any allergies or medical conditions that may require urgent treatment our school needs an Action Plan. Please contact us for more details about medical conditions.

 

Looking forward to seeing you at our Meet the Teacher interview

5/6H class teacher
