We have been learning all about "Australia As A Nation". This is our history unit for Terms 1 & 2. We're becoming experts on the Westminster System. Ask us some questions like:
- In what year did Australia become a nation?
- Why is our parliamentary system called a Westminster system? (and where is Westminster?)
- Who is the Queen's representative in Australia?
In our science unit this term we're learning all about Earthquakes. Ask us what the richter scale is and how many times bigger is an Earthquake of 3.0 on the richter scale compared to a 2.0?
George's Marvellous Medicine:
We love Roald Dahl. Who doesn't?! We also love Quentin Blake. We're reading George's Marvellous Medicine and looking at the writing skills of Roald Dahl. We're also working on sketches in the style of Quentin Blake... we even tuned in to a video of Mr Blake showing how he brings Roald Dahl's characters to life.
Room 10 students have been trialling the new Chromebooks. Each student has their own Chromebook and soon the rest of Years 5 & 6 will have a Chromebook too because we worked hard to prove they were very good for classrooms!
COMING UP in our assembly item...
Even though it isn't until next term, we've already decided on one thing we're going to showcase at the assembly... just ask us when decimal currency was introduced and we'll answer (to tune of 'click goes the shears') THE 14TH OF FEBRUARY 1966.
We're all happy little learners in Room 10!
