Grade 6

 

Welcome to the 2019 Grade 6 page!

 

 


We are very excited to work with our students on achieving success in their final year of primary school.

The Grade 6 team consists of Dean Scanlon, Luke Davy and Olivia Hogan. You can find us located in room 11 (6LD), room 12 (6DS) and room 13 (6OH). We are all really looking forward to helping all our students achieve their very best in their final term of primary school.



In reading this term we are focusing on a range of comprehension strategies, beginning with ‘searching for and using information in a text’.

In writing this term we are focusing on recount writing and persuasive texts.

In Maths we have begun looking at Angles. We will then move into a focus on Place Value.

Throughout Topic this term we are looking at “Who Are We?” with a specific focus on Australia’s connection to the rest of the world.




The one-to-one iPad program will continue in 2019. The iPad program enhances student learning through the use of many educational applications, the ability to research information on the internet at any time and to create their own published pieces in a variety of ways, such as video tutorials, slideshows or illustrated word documents.

Some of the fantastic programs the Grade 6 students will participate in this year include;

  • Electives
  • Sports Days
  • Daily 5/CAFE Literacy sessions
  • Maths Masters sessions
  • 1:1 iPad program
  • Gender Groups
  • Interschool Sports
  • Brain Training/Bucket Fillers

 

Kind regards,


Grade 6 Team.
