YEAR 6 WCCS
Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 - Sport
It is good to get out sometimes and to enjoy some physical activity in the sun.
Year 6 - Buddies
Year 6 continue to look after their buddies over the year. We love hanging out with our buddies, teaching them new things.
Year 6 - Science
This week, year 6 have been researching and conducting experiments to discover which shape creates the strongest support structure. Have a look at some their tests in slow motion by following this link:
6C Mathematics Board Games!
For Mathematics this term, 6C have been creating fraction and percentage based board games. Requirements of the game were that it needed to be challenging, fair and exciting, it had to incorporate elements of chance and needed to appeal to Year Six students. It needed to help Year Six students practice adding and subtracting fractions, finding equivalent fractions and renaming percents as fractions. Check out some of their work below:
Year 6 Photography
Why not check out some of the excellent photographs taken by Year 6 during their photography unit. They focused on the ideas of proximity, perspective, angle, subject and background. Have a discussion on how each photographer has used each of these elements in their shot. Click here!
Earthquake Resistant Structures
Today, Year 6 had a great time studying how earthquakes affect the design and creation of buildings. Working collaboratively, they created and tested their very own designs. Check out more here.
War on Waste
Today, Year 6 spent their time starting a 'War on Waste'! Starting with individually guided research, students identified a waste based problem and have worked hard to develop some very creative solutions.
Girls Soccer Gala
The senior girls IPSSO soccer team attended the CSSA gala day last Thursday. Here is a photo of the team. A great day was had by all!
Week 6 - Year 6 Debating
Congratulations to the Year 6 debating team on their second win. They have performed very well arguing their points of view. They have worked collaboratively and represented WCCS with pride.
Check out some photos here.
Week 6 - Incursion
On Tuesday, Year 6 had an incursion where they learned about our environment, in particular rubbish and its effects. The students learned how litter is destroying our oceans and strategies they need to take to take care of God's creation.
Week 6 - Art Incursion
28 students from across Year 6 had a wonderful time learning from two artists how to draw and paint portraits. These portraits will be hung on the wall at Casual Powerhouse Art Museum as part of the Archibold Art Competition, where professional artists will be on display. Keep posted for dates.
See the photos here.
There are some fortunate students in Year 6, who by volunteering their time, have a unique opportunity to receive a professional art lesson from two artists on Tuesday 6th March 2018. The artists have been involved with the Archibold Art Competition and are coming with thanks from the Casula Powerhouse Art Museum.
Stay posted for photos.
If you're finding your kids still have a lot of energy...
Wow, What a performance Year 6! This week we performed 'A Million Dreams' from 'The Greatest Showman' for our assembly item. We sounded fantastic!
During sport we played a great game of 'Dog and Bone'! It really got everybody fired up! Check out how it went below:

Year 6, here is the version of A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman we have been practising in grade time.
Hope to see you well practised and bursting with enthusiasm come tomorrow afternoon,
The Grade 6 Teachers.
Hey Year 6!
A quick post about planners. Planners are used to help you organise yourself, especially with homework and other class issues. Here is an example of excellent planner use. Great work, Yeshaya!
As part of grade time, Year 6 will be playing a range of different board games. The games have been chosen to foster teamwork and collaboration, critical and strategic thinking, and social skills. On Friday afternoon, 6M and 6MG came together for the first session. It was loud and fun!
We have had a great first week back here in Year 6, from adjusting to our new classes, studying history through the lens of the American Civil War, learning musical concepts with Mrs Shenouda, and even meeting our Kindergarten buddies! Phew! It has been a busy first week back, although a fun one! We are looking forward to a great year ahead!
