Digital Picture Books

Wed, Jul 3rd, 2024

In week 10 we have been learning to design and create digital picture books so that students demonstrate their understanding of symbolism and characterization based on our mentor texts ‘Rabbit, Soldier, Angel, Thief’ and ‘The Feather.’ The picture book has a narrative structure and develops a storyline related to a symbol they chose to represent hope. The students will be reading their creations to their Kinder buddies. 

Enjoy the school holidays. We are eager to begin Term 3 to continue our Year 6 journey. 

In week 1, we will begin a unit in maths with the big idea - What needs to be measured determines the unit of measurement. This unit focuses on the properties of three-dimensional shapes, working with different nets, creating three-dimensional shapes that relate to the real world and exploring different units of measurement. This can be supported at home by having conversations about what unit of measurement is the most appropriate to measure different things e.g. driving from Tweed Heads to Murwillumbah, you would use kilometres.

Spelling activities are available online using the class code: where531. You can copy the following link into your browser:

Maths Help will begin in Week 1 next term each Thursday 3.05 - 4.00 pm. This is designed to support students with their understanding of mathematics concepts being covered in Year 6. If you are interested please email the school so the teachers can prepare.

Please refer to the parent resources tab for information about the music tuition program, should you wish to enrol your child.

Together we are working towards wearing our school uniform with pride.
