The poster can include pictures and labelled diagrams. Feel free to use coloured poster paper from your teacher.

Homework Question

• Famous inventions- this can be one paragraph per invention.
• Developments of their inventions over time

You should include lots of detail in your biography, as this information will be required for the following week’s homework task.

Information for Grade 6 Families – Graduation

We would like to let you know at this early stage, some information in regards to Grade 6 Graduation at the end of the year. Due to an increase in student numbers in grade 6 this year, there has been some changes to the date and venue for graduation. The Beaconsfield Baptist Church can longer accommodate all families, and rather than restricting guest numbers even smaller, we feel that a new venue will allow families to bring all of their immediate family as guests. After much deliberation and taking into account availability and costs, this year our graduation ceremony will take place at Upper Beaconsfield Primary School. Their large gymnasium with full size stage and sound/visual equipment will be a fantastic venue to celebrate our grade six student achievements.

The date for graduation has also been changed to Wednesday 19th December 2018. This is due to the availability at Upper Beaconsfield Primary School. The grade six graduation excursion will now take place on Thursday 20th December. More information about this will be given next term.

Open Night Tonight!

Just a reminder that our Open Night is on tonight between 6pm and 7:30pm. Feel free to pop into your child’s classroom at some stage during the night to check out all the great things they’ve been doing.

Grade 5 Tiger Paws

Today the Grade 5’s had a visit from the Tiger Paws (Richmond Football Club volunteers) where they participated in two sessions revolved around physical activity and nutrition. The physical activity component involved the students learning about running mechanics and then practising these different techniques through timing gates, as well as learning a few football skills. The nutrition session saw the students learning about the three major macronutrients and how we can incorporate these in a balanced, healthy meal. The students were allowed to eat a variety of different nutrients, practice preparing their own meals and learn about good hygiene practices.
No need to make lunches for the kids anymore parents! The grade 5’s now have all the knowledge they need to stay fit and healthy.

Thankyou to the Tiger Paws program for a very enjoyable day.
