Another busy week of learning! 
On Monday Mrs Morris and Lily took some of our football team to a tournament at the Gallagher Stadium. They had an amazing day and the weather was kind too. They reached the quarter finals and they all received a medal. There will more tournaments throughout the year.
In Literacy this week we have started the story called Flotsam by David Weisner. It's about a little boy who finds a camera on the beach. We spent the beginning of the week writing descriptions about the beach and the boy. We then did some research on climate change and explored how we can prevent this. We presented our research in a variety of ways. We also looked at Greta Thunberg, who is a young Swedish climate campaigner. We wrote a letter to her asking her about how to prevent climate change.
In Maths, Year 5 have been learning about statistics with a focus on graphs. They have been learning to solve problems and interpret information provided in line graphs. They have also been learning how to plot line graphs.
Year 6 have been learning about long multiplication and long division. They have also been learning the rules and strategies to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1,000. They have explored factors, multiples and prime numbers. We have been solving problems in all of these areas.
In Science, we are continuing to make observations of the mould growing on the bread. We also looked at the mouldy apples that had fallen on the ground on the field as part of our learning on microorganisms.
We have been looking at Andy Warhol in Art and explored printing this week, and although messy, we had great fun producing some fantastic pieces of art work.
