Welcome to Term 3.
In the first half of this term, students will be investigating natural disasters and how they change and shape the face of the Earth and impact communities around the world. The second thread running through the term involves us working towards the Senior School Concert to be held in the last week of term.
As with each term, for both Literacy and Numeracy students will be provided learning activities to build on/extend their current strengths and understandings. The CAFÉ Reading Program, SoundWaves and Essential Numeracy support our cycle of individualised assessment and goal setting for your child.
Our literacy will have stronger focus on factual texts, giving students the opportunity to hone their research skills and formally present their learning to an audience. In numeracy, our core work will include operating with, and making connections between fractions, decimals and percentages.
You can assist your child by supporting their 5 nights a week reading, practising spelling words, knowledge of 'times tables,' and by helping them to develop their general knowledge through the discussion of world events, news and current affairs.
We welcome and encourage parent to contact us about your child's learning at any time. Please arrange a time to come in and share any information or queries with us.
Year 6 at Maiden Gully has recently been described by parents as a rite of passage, where traditions are maintained and there are diverse leadership opportunities for all seniors.
