The Year Five students are enjoying learning about democracy.  One of the students was selected to be a Supreme Leader for the day.  She came out to trumpets with a crown, robe and sceptre to inform the class of the new rules and consequences, that even Miss Hall had to abide by.  She was a very fair leader and oversaw her Classroom Kingdom a manner fitting royal duties!

The Year 5 class are looking forward to starting their new Book Club books! The class completed research on a range of books to select the one they would like to study. Each week the children work in their groups to run their own book club, participating in group meetings to discuss ideas, questions and new vocabulary.  There is also time for independent reading and comprehension tasks.  The children also have the opportunity to work on a final book club project to share with the class in order to ‘sell their book’ for the next book club swap. This semester there is a great mix of historic fiction, fantasy and science fiction!

During Year 5 and Pre Primary buddy time we begun planning for our puppet show! Each buddy pair chose a nursery rhyme and we are going to make our own puppets to retell the stories. Together we drew plans for our puppets and listed all the materials we will need, so next we will start creating them!

In Year 5 Science lesson, the class have been learning about food safety and hygiene practises. To explore food handling processes and designs, the class worked in groups to bag bread untouched by human hands, touched by unwashed hands, hands washed with warm water and soap, and finally wiped on a surfaced that is often touched, such as iPad, whiteboard, shoes, a ball. The students will then observe and compare what happens to each piece of bread as time passes. We look forward to their finds!
