In English we have been examining a very humorous book called the ‘Twits’, the students’ task was to write a new chapter.  We have continued on with the theme of humour looking at a variety of different forms of poetry.  The students wrote their own limerick which they presented to the class.
During Maths we have focused on number and place value, fractions, time, length and chance and data.
The students have been learning about erosion in Science, the causes, impact on the environment and possible solutions.  For assessment the students are investigating an area of erosion and investigating possible solutions to the problem.
In History, we have been researching early explorers, and the colonisation of Australia. Students chose a convict from the First Fleet and wrote an historical narrative about that person.  We have started to present those narratives to the class.
Looking at the five elements of fitness was focus of our Health lessons, with an emphasis on choosing a healthy lifestyle.  We have made activity cards for each element for a fitness circuit.  The students have produced an excellent variety of cards for the circuit.
