Years 5/6 team updates

Year 5 class

From the Team Leader

What a fantastic start to the year. Our time at Cooba was terrific. It helped our students to bond as a cohort and build their capacity as leaders. The Senior Writing Awards focused on the creation of children’s books. The submissions were outstanding, and most have now been displayed in our school library.

During term 2 all students in 5/6 participate in the Rostrum Public Speaking Competition. Public speaking can be an area that causes some angst. Please support your child through this process and encourage them to engage with the examples given on the Rostrum website. http://www.rostrum.com.au/act-primary-schools-speaking-competition

This year we will be holding our third Artists’ and Writers’ Festival; a time when students and staff shelve their regular learning programs and throw themselves into a world of creativity. Keep your eyes open as more details will be available soon and we will be continuing to seek volunteers to support us with the Festival.

In 2017 there are five mainstream classes and two small group classes in the 5/6 team.  Each class has chosen the name of an Australian author as part of our celebration of literature and art. Our teachers this year are: Helen Middleton teaching the 5/6 Story Wizards, Lydia Kepich (Mon-Wed and Friday) and Heather Walker (Thurs) who teach 5/6 Graeme Base, Emily Gregory who teaches 5/6 Wicked, Clive Beecham who teaches the 5/6 Red Kings, Charlotte Kewley who teaches 5/6 Anh Do and Lyndsey Simcoe and Nick Collins who team-teach 5/6 Oditorium.  Our classes are located on the top level on the eastern end of the Condamine St. corridors and in the rooms that adjoin the staffroom.

As team leader I am always willing to chat to parents of 5/6 children about any business to do with our team and classrooms.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school on 62056622.

Thank you for all you do to support us and your child at our school.
