The Grade 5 team consists of Jenny Davies, Jane Knight, Sarah Nixon, Shane Chatwood and Marie Wigzell. You can find us located in room 8 (5JD), room 7 (5JK), room 6 (5SN) and room 5 (5MW). We also have a team of ESO staff working with us – Mr Dainty (5SN), Miss Donovan (5MW) and Mr Remmie (5JD).

In reading this term we are focusing on developing our students reading skills through introducing Responding to Text, Analysing Text and Word Work activities that students can choose to complete in order to achieve their individual reading goals. Strategies we will focus on include identifying the authors purpose and making inferences.

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

In Maths our major focus is around Place Value, with a focus on Shape towards the end of term.

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.
