With persuasive writing being our writing topic at the moment, the 5/6 teachers have been coming up with all sorts of different ways for our students to extend their knowledge and understanding.
Here’s a couple of pictures from Miss Caddy’s classes debate on ‘fiction is better than non-fiction.’
Congratulations to Kane, Luke, Braden, Hayley, Sienna and Isabelle who are our Students of the Week!
With the games against Beaconhills cancelled this morning, the 5/6’s went through a rotation of our 4 different summer sports. After fine tuning their skills at cricket, volleyball, basketball and softball, the students will be primed to take on Pakenham Hills next Friday!
What is Photosynthesis? Why is it important? These are the two questions you will need to research this week for homework. You can write your answers in your homework books. Remember to paraphrase what you have found while researching. Do not just copy and paste from the internet. You can draw a diagram to show your understanding also. The information gathered must total at least half a page of writing. A sentence is not enough for each answer. Be creative with your answers.
Here are some great examples of homework from the previous two weeks:
This week the grade 5/6 students have been working on persuasive writing in class.
Today 5H split up into persuasive writing teams and brainstormed ready to debate the topic, ‘Should students be allowed to eat in class’.
Meanwhile 5J and 5O worked on the structure of persuasive pieces, as well their communication skills, by trying to recreate a poster that only some members of their group were allowed to see.
Just letting you know that the Walk to School from the Stop and Drop Zone at O’Neil road is back on again tomorrow. We will be leaving from O’Neil road and heading to school approximately 8:30am.

Within the Beaconsfield Primary School philosophy of ‘Kids Matter’, all the grade 5 students got together this week to participate in a team challenge.
They were randomly allocated groups and required to built the highest tower in a short time frame using limited materials. All groups worked tremendously well together and everyone had a great afternoon.
Congratulations to Keeley, Kade, Arthur and Luke who were our winners.
