Fill | Maiden Gully Primary School Swimming: Home Level Assessment
Maiden Gully Swimming Program Term 4, 2021
Welcome to Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre School Swimming Program. To ensure minimal time is used assessing and grouping students on the first day of the program, please complete the following form by Wednesday 10th November 2021. This will assist us to place your child in the correct level and group prior to the commencement of the program. If you have any questions regarding the program please don’t hesitate to contact the Gurri Wanyarra Swim School team on 4431 1000
Our integrated inquiry and literacy centres around inventors and the science around their inventions.
Students begin Term 4 by investigating and researching various inventors and influential inventions. Students will be exploring writing biographies, procedures, and explanations as they create their own invention to present at our annual Inventors Expo.
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:
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.
