Please feel free to come and see us, call or email us with any questions. Matters requiring urgent attention should not be emailed (eg a student needing to be picked up early) as our focus during the day is teaching and we may not check our email in time.


Literacy – Students have regular lessons covering reading, writing and speaking and listening. This term we will refresh our book boxes with ‘Just Right’ books, focus on specific comprehension strategies, write persuasive pieces, narratives, recounts and information reports. Students will use VCOP strategies and editing to uplevel all of their writing pieces. ‘Cold Write’ and ‘Big Write’ will continue to improve student engagement and build excitement for all genres of writing this term. When you receive a ‘Big Write’ topic, please discuss and write down ideas and interesting vocabulary with your child and send notes back to school on their ‘Big Write’ day. This has an enormously positive impact on their writing.


Numeracy – students have regular lessons covering Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability. We have a strong emphasis on strategies and understanding concepts. We have been looking at Order of Operations and will be moving on to Fractions, Data and Graphing, 24-hour time, 3D shapes, Symmetry and Transformation and Mapping.


Inquiry – our focus this term is Resilience. Level 5/6 will be looking at our environment, the ways in which it is changed by natural and unnatural causes and how humans can overcome these changes.  This is an extremely broad topic which covers natural disasters, human impact and sustainability.
