5H Weekly News

12th December 2015

Dear parents,

Only one more week to go! It has been a long stretch of learning for the students, and they have kept working really hard. I am sure you will agree, the concert on Friday was fantastic. I imagine everyone was exhausted on Friday night!

The Week Ahead


We will finish our unit about finding the area of triangles. Students will complete an assessment to show their understanding of the concepts covered in this chapter.


We will begin our unit on writing a research-based persuasive essay. We will discuss an issue, work on finding information about the issue, and forming an opinion based on the research.


In addition to group novel reading and independent reading time, we will enjoy reading and discussing some festive poetry this week. We might even try writing one of our own!
