Year 6, Term 1 news

YEAR 6 NEWS

With Term 1 quickly drawing to a close we look back on what has been a very busy time.

 

During this term Year 6 students have taken part in webinars with other schools across the state, where they developed their understanding of the 4Rs of online safety and how to seek assistance if they encountered online bullying.

Student leaders attended the GRIP Leadership conference travelling into town by train and learning the core strategies related to being a leader.

Harmony Day saw the Year sixes dressing in orange and spending their day building, creating, singing karaoke, improving their photography skills, playing board games  and having a great day playing.

Taking part in the cross country gave our students an opportunity to practise their leadership skills. This time it was our House Captains leading their Houses in cheering on the runners and assisting in the setup and operation of the day. Congratulation to Oaklands house on taking out the day.

As part of Curiosity our students have been taking part in a unit on economics. They were required to select an item to make market and sell on market day. This involved costing and ordering their ingredients, calculating the cost to make each item and pricing the items accordingly to ensure that they make a profit. They created adds for their market stalls and decorated their stalls to attract customers. Market day was a very busy day for our students, putting the final touches on their stalls and then selling their goods to the student’s from Foundation to Year 4. At the close of trading each group had to tally their takings, complete their profit and loss spreadsheet and write an evaluation on the success of their venture.

To finish off a very busy week our students once again demonstrated great school spirit by assisting at the Family Fun Night. Collecting tokens, face painting and tattooing were just a few of the tasks they helped with.
