Greetings 5C Community,
This week, students have been hard at work completing their end of year assessments in math and literacy. With just three weeks left until the summer break, we are counting down the days to middle school.
Students are very excited about their step up day which is happening all day Wednesday for 5C. Students will shadow their Grade Six pen pal buddy for the day. They will follow their buddies timetable, attend all of their classes and eat together with the other middle school students in the cafeteria. It is sure to be a nervous, yet very exciting day for them all.
In addition to the ongoing assessment, in math this week students have been inquiring into angles. We made our own protractors using our knowledge of regular 2D shapes.
In literacy we have been examining the explanation text type. Students spent the early parts of the week reading and identifying the structural elements. Next week we will take a closer look at the grammatical features, before continuing some more explanation writing.
In UOI this week, the boys and girls were separated for two periods so that students could learn some of the more specific details involved with growing up as a boy or girl. Next week, students will work on their transition timelines to show with parents after the G5 Celebration Assembly on June 10. We will also have a photo display of baby & toddler photos growing. It would be wonderful if all students could contribute a photo. They will be returned at the end of the unit.
