Wow, we are over half way through Term 4! What a great start to the term we have had. It has been yet another busy week in the life of a Grade 5, with the JSC Disco, Transition, House Captain Speeches, writing narratives and learning about measurement.
Last Friday night the Grade Fives slipped on their dancing shoes and danced the night away at the Disco. After a delicious sausage sizzle it was wonderful to see so many showing off their dance moves. A huge thank you needs to be given to Mr Mac, who was our own personal DJ. He provided a mix of the ‘coolest’ songs on the charts and even taught us some new dance moves.
Lunch with the Grade Fours
On Tuesday we welcomed our friends in Grade 4 to our classrooms, to give them a taste of what life will be like in Grade 5. Students compared the similarities and differences between the two year levels including LPS Camps, Grade 5/6 Sport, the process of becoming a School/House Captain and DEA- in particular, Edmodo. Both the Grade Fours and the Grade Fives came to the conclusion that life in Grade 5 is pretty awesome.
Grade Fives will have the opportunity to hear all about what happens in Grade 6 on Monday 17th November.
House Captain Speeches
On Thursday the Grade Fives in their respective houses listened to speeches of their potential House Captains for 2015. It was clear that all those who participated had spent a lot of time thinking and preparing how they were going to persuade the audience to vote for them. Congratulations to all those who took part. That in itself displays wonderful leadership skills, and they should be very proud of themselves.
Applications for other leadership opportunities such as Library Assistants and Science Captains will take place early in 2015.
On Friday, forty one Grade 5 students headed off to Kingswood College to play in a Sofcrosse tournament. What a relief that the temperature dropped from 34◦C! Well done to all those involved, there were a few tough games but as usual, the LPS team spirit shone through.
Somers Camp 2015
In February 2015 the Grade 6s (now Grade5s) have the opportunity to take part in a 9 day Somers Camp. We are looking for three girls and three boys who are interested. The cost will be $210. Numbers need to be finalised by the 26th of November. All expressions of interest to attend the camp must be in writing to Ms Weekes by Thursday 20th November. Please speak to your classroom teacher if you are interested.
Have a lovely weekend.
