Year 5 WCCS

Week 9

5HD Adventures in Science

Tuesday was our Science fair! We shared plenty of our ideas for the future! :) See below for some of the fun...

5B - 'Goodbye Celebration'

Dear Parent,

On Friday the 22nd 5B will be farewelling a dear member of the class.

Accordingly we are having a small ‘goodbye celebration’.

Your child has nominated to bring in a certain plate, whether it be cake plate, a fruit plate, cups, or other.

If possible…please support them in this endeavour.

Many thanks,

Mr Burns

Week 4 - 6 William Carey

Wow! We got busy! In fact, we got so busy we didn't post for a couple of weeks! Eeek!

Anyway, we are back now, and we hope that you enjoy our new look site. Please keep checking this site for homework, any announcements, and even some learning videos (screencasts) if you need to. It can be a great place to catch up on missed work, find new work, or revise some material (at your own pace) if you like.

Use the links at the top, and try to look for Term 3 material. And remember (don't be tricked)...clicking on English or Maths is different to clicking on the drop-down menu for English or Maths. Same for History!

Plenty has been happening in Year 5. We made the top ten WordMania leaderboard. We had a 'come as your future job' dress up day. We joined in with the Mary Production...and we engaged in plenty of good-old-fashioned learning!

Please enjoy the photos below. Speak soon!

Week 3 - Year 5 at William Carey

What a busy week with an amazing array of fantastic lessons. 5B and 5HD have been getting into some serious WORDMANIA, competing with schools nationally in order to make the literacy leaderboards. Get involved at home if you can! 5C has been flat out engaging in some challenging engineering feats concerning the construction of straw towers. Who can make the highest? What structures are the most supported? Why? Meanwhile 5F has been getting deeply into the Word, studying 2 Kings. Perhaps you could ask them what they have learnt about Elijah and Elisha?

Word of warning - it might involve bears!

WEEK 2 - Mary Poppins - Come Along!

Act now! (So you don't miss out!)

1) 5B is busy designing their own Australian flag.

2) 5F is busy learning about the great American 'dust bowl' and how man can change his environment.

3) 5C is getting into some 'Question, Skills and Instruction' comprehension material - developing their skills as readers.

There is plenty happening at WCCS! Stay tuned! (See below for photos.)
