Latest from Year 5
Our first few weeks in Year 5 have been busy but amazing! During Maths we inquired into different ancient number system, including Roman Numerals, Egyptian, and Mayan. Then we presented our new understandings to each other, everyone did very well and their presentations were great.
During Language we read different articles by women who wrote their wholes lives in 100 words. We now have the challenge of writing our lives in 100 words, it is very challenging.
Our swimming lessons at Senior School are well underway and we really enjoyed the Swimming Carnival. We also have a House Diving Carnival this term. Our first couple of lessons have been super fun. It is not just normal diving off the side of the pool, we also get to weird and cool dives like flips and a dive called T I O. We can’t wait for the Diving Carnival.
Our term ends with the trip to Canberra for camp. We are really excited and we are looking forward to understanding our government system and how it links to our current Unit of inquiry.
