Grade 6



 

Welcome to the 2017 Grade 6 page!

 

 

 

We hope all our families had a wonderful two week break. We are very excited to  continue working with our students on achieving success in their final year of primary school.

 

The Grade 6 team consists of Sally Dawson (Team Leader), Darleene Miles, Olivia Hogan and Jarryd Stirling. You can find us located in room 11 (6JS), room 12 (6SD), room 13 (6OH) and room 14 (6DM). We are all looking forward to improving relationships with all our students this term and helping them achieve their very best.


We are excited to have a one-to-one iPad program in Grade 6. 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.

  • Electives

Students will attend ability based maths groups learning about 'Fractions and Decimals', 'Shape and Geometric Reasoning' and 'Data Representation and Interpretation'. Students are placed in ability based maths groups to ensure the learning and teaching is targeted for their own specific needs. They will also participate in streamed 'Maths Masters' sessions each week, working towards gaining components of their individual Maths Masters Belt.

INTEGRATED TOPIC: This term our Year 6 students will be learning about 'Necessity'. Through this unit, students will learn how individual needs can be met through the successful management of money. They will take a deeper look into household budgeting and needs vs wants.

 

 

We are looking forward to a successful and fun term ahead!

 

 

Kind regards,
