What app would you create if you could? What does equality mean to you? Who is ‘Kid President’? And what’s happening on Thursday…?
Zambia is celebrating its Independence Day this week. What can you find out about this country? What is happening in the news this week? Share your thoughts. Perhaps you can think of news that I haven’t brought up. Maybe you have some ideas on how to solve the world’s problems. Believe in the possible! Join our discussion
We’ve been reading our class novel, The Fourteenth Goldfish and are up to Chapter 12. Take this opportunity to go on to this Tackk Stream and share your thoughts. You may choose to summarise what we’ve read so far, disucss animal testing (give reasons or examples), share your thoughts on a character or make a prediction. You may also share pictures but you MUST keep these relevant to your topic (e.g. no reason to share a picture of One Direction or Taylor Swift) and you MUST consider your audience (e.g. if you are disucssing animal testing, please do NOT share distressing images).

Welcome back for your final term in Year Five! We are sharing our class novel, ‘The Fourteenth Goldfish’ with 2 classes, one in Chicago (USA) and the other in Winnipeg (Canada) so part of our inquiry this week is looking into those two places. Make sure your comments are succinct and relevant – remember though, if you don’t understand what you are posting, don’t post it.
We have created a survey for you to complete so that we can get to know you a little better.
Thanks for taking part and we look forward to sharing our thoughts on ‘The Fourteenth Goldfish’ with you.
This term we will be participating in the Global Read Aloud. We will be connecting with schools from around the globe to share our thoughts. The premise is simple; we pick a book to read aloud to our students during a set 6-week period and during that time we try to make as many global connections as possible. 5 W will be reading ‘The Fourteenth Goldfish’ by Jennifer L. Holm:
Breakdown for the 6 weeks:
Week 1: Chapters 1 – 5
Week 2: Chapters 6 – 10
Week 3: Chapters 11 – 15
Week 4: Chapters 16 – 20
Week 5: Chapters 21 – 25
Week 6: Chapters 26 – end
What a great last day we had just before the 1 week mid-semester break. Here are some images from the Teachers V Students Netball match.
1 Finn and 5 Webb conduct weekly Buddy Reading sessions. Every Friday we meet in the library where students find their buddies. The younger students read aloud to their older buddies and then the older students read a book to the younger students.
