Welcome to Term 2
As Term 2 begins, the first step in secondary transition will begin with Information Sessions being offered to families at local secondary schools. We encourage you to visit and look around at every opportunity; it will all contribute towards a successful transition in 2022 for your child.
Our integrated inquiry centres around Natural Disasters and students building research, paraphrasing and summarising skills using non-fiction texts. To successfully achieve this, students will be differentiating between the main idea, supporting details and interesting information.
Literacy at Home:
Encourage and support your child to read 5 nights a week minimum.
Ask them questions about their book to support their reading goal - who, what, when, where, why, and how?
We will be learning about and working with:
Numeracy at Home:
Practise number facts eg 7x8, 8x7, 56÷8, 56÷7… even 7x0.8, etc.

Parent / Teacher Partnership
We encourage parents to contact us at any stage to share knowledge about your child that may affect their learning, or if you have any questions or concerns – the earlier, the better!
Class Dojo is a major form of contact. We use this app as an interactive communication portal between us and you. We send home reminders, requests, student learning goals, and anecdotal class stories now and again. It is there for parents to send us important messages and absence notes as needed.
Although you can contact a teacher individually on Class Dojo, we ask that you predominantly use the “Year6Den” option, which will give you access to all five of us and better enable us to keep communication channels open to better meet your needs.
Please directly contact the office for any immediate changes to your child’s day, eg change to the end of school pick up. Our primary concern is teaching and we may not pick up a Dojo message until after 3:30pm. The office is a safer bet for everyone.
