When year 5 were at camp

On the 15th and 16th the year 5's went to camp and the year 6's stayed at school with Mrs Casey.

I enjoyed doing art with Tanika and Amber for passion time and while they were away I finished my publishing for my narrative. It was on our superheros. 

The funny thing is we played two games of octopus, one game for fitness and a game after lunch but at least it was fun right?.  


WHAT? After literacy week we learned about space. We went to each year 5/6 teacher who had a different lesson about planet Earth and beyond.

SO WHAT? I enjoyed learning about the solar system with Mrs hall and we learned about special things about the planets and the solar system some other things I learned was that it takes Earth 365 days to orbit the sun. You wouldn't survive on Mercury because it's too hot. Also you wouldn't survive on Jupiter because it's filled with gases. 

NOW WHAT? My next step is to learn more about space.

Life Education


Last Tuesday we went to the Life Education truck. Our big question was what does our body need to stay healthy and happy?                                                                                      

I learned that there's lots of sugar, salt and last of all fat in food and there are different names for them.      
I also learned how to read the nutritional information on the packaging.                

Next I am going to read the backs of packaging regularly and look to see if there is a lot of sugar, salt or fat
