Our Students - Year 5 Room 9

Room 9 started the year with lots of excitement and enthusiasm. So far, this term has been an extremely busy and interesting time learning about each other and establishing a routine. From the beginning of the term we focused on daily mental maths and explored free writing, this encouraged the students to reflect and express themselves.  We have also looked at a range of other interesting topics.

In Visual Arts we have been learning about contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art. Students had to create a dot painting on an animal focusing on specific techniques that they thought were effective to complete their art project.

In HaSS we researched and used our enquiry skills to learn about the Penal Colony and different Governor’s involved. Students had to pick one of the governor’s and create a mini biography on their chosen person.
