Grade 5 2018


Welcome back! We are looking forward to a fun and full term 3.


Welcome to Term 2!

We have had an exciting and busy start to this term with many amazing events, including the Mexican Delegation, the Virtual Reality Incursion, Mother's Day Stall and our commemoration of ANZAC Day.

We look forward to NAPLAN (15th - 17th May) and know this will give our students an opportunity to show their capabilities.

What a great start to the term!


Grade 5 students were involved in making damper to explore Australia's History.  This involved them using all senses to investigate what it was like to make damper in the early days.  Some students used the recipe and measuring equipment, whilst others were not allowed to, as not all bushmen would have had all of the required equipment in the past.  It was an interesting investigation that made students realise how lucky they are today.


Over the past three weeks, a delegation of eight students and two staff members have come to our school from Mexico as part of an exchange program. We have learnt lots about their culture through a presentation in our GP Room as well as lessons run by the Mexicans in our classrooms where they taught us about some of their traditions. They have also learnt a lot about life in Australia through visits to popular tourist destinations such as Healesville Sanctuary and participation in Australian lessons within our classrooms. 5R and 5W teamed up to teach the Mexicans all about the Australian and Aboriginal flags. Take a look at some of the pictures below.
