Safer Internet Day

As part of Safer Internet Day the students in years 4, 5 and 6 took part in an eSafety webinar which focused on helping the children to understand the four Superpowers:

Respect – I will treat myself and others the way I like to be treated

Responsibility – I am accountable for my actions

Reasoning – I question what is real

Resilience – I get back up from tough situations

The students were given the opportunity to identify these Superpowers in different scenarios to develop a better understanding of their how they can be applied to real life.

Year 5 Phillip Island Adventure Resort Camp

Year 5 Camp

On Tuesday the 9th of October the Year 5 cohort went to Phillip Island Adventure Resort. Students enjoyed a range of activities such as the giant swing, twin flying fox and the circatron. We also had the opportunity to go to A Maze ’N’ Things where we played mini golf and got lost in the maze.

Year 5 camp was the best camp EVER! My favourite activity was the circatron. Another activity I enjoyed was the giant swing. I personally think that the food was pretty good. We made pancakes on the last day and they were really good!

Year 5 camp in 2018 was my favourite camp I have ever been on! My favourite part was the circitron that astronauts used to train on. Another thing was the disco. We danced to lots of songs and we had a lot of fun. But my favourite part of all was the food. We had amazing meals that always left us full. We had breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

Descriptive Writing

Starry Starry Night

The strong breeze touches me with a tingle from the sky of beauty. The swirls of clouds in the night sky are an illusion. Waves of the hills slowly sweep away the black swirly skies. I hear rustling leaves on a tree while owls hoot the dark night away. I wander aimlessly through the quiet, eerie and deserted streets feeling invisible to the world.

Parliament Process Incursion

In weeks 4 and 6 the Year 5 students where they looked at the House of Representatives and the Senate. They participated in role plays where they had to vote and then debate their ideas to pass a bill. All students enjoyed themselves!

 

We were in the senate learning about government and democracy and how it works. One thing I learnt is that democracy is fair because you have to vote.
-Matisse

I really liked the fact that we all got to all participate in a role for a role play together and one thing I learnt was there are three stages a bill has to pass to become a law.
