Homework for Year Five 2013

Throughout the year students will be assigned various pieces of homework, however there are some activities that will be assigned each week that are due every Friday. It is important that parents keep track of students' homework and regularly check and sign diaries to make sure students are staying up to date.

Term 1 Information

Literacy In Term 1

In Term One we are using the Newspapers in Education program for literacy. We are reading the story S.O.R. Losers which is about a reluctant team of unathletic players who compete in a middle school soccer tournament. The student will be discussing themes such as teamwork and good sportsmanship and are particularly focusing on persuasive writing in preparation for the NAPLAN testing in Term Two.
