Welcome back to term 3!


A very warm welcome back to term 3 to everyone in year 5! We are so excited to get started on a new term with lots of wonderful things in store. The second half of the year is shaping up to be more busy than the first!

This term we are looking forward to our athletics day, jumping back into our smashing new reading program, starting our new history unit in Inquiry, and, of course, CAMP RUMBUG in September! Please ensure that consent forms, medical forms and payments are returned to school.

A student free day on Monday August the 13th will see our team learning about working memory disorders and how we can cater for our students.

We also get a chance to see all our lovely parents at our parent teacher interviews in week 3! Please make your bookings through Sentral or pop in to arrange a time with your child’s teacher.

We begin this week by jumping straight back into our reading program and finding out what juicy books  have been read over the holidays. We will also be re-establishing some of our class expectations and setting goals for the new term, via a shortened Learning to Learn approach.

This term we welcome Michael Mottershead who will be taking over from Maree Rovatti in 5M for term 3 whilst Maree is on leave. We are sure that Mr Mottershead and 5M will have a great term together!

We also have three new students joining our level this week. Welcome Peter, Justin and Qing!

Remember, a new term is a great chance to start fresh and make positive choices in our school lives.

As always, pop in to see us if you have any queries or concerns.


The Year 5 Team,

Narelle, Camelia, Kathy, Catherine & Michael
