Fruity Friday

Every Friday your child should bring a healthy and fruity snack. The Eco Squad needs the peel to create compost. Year 6 should be setting the example, so please, please, please bring in fruit to eat on Friday and pop the peel in the green bucket outside the butterfly garden.

Conflict – Inquiry

Here are some of the questions/issues our students have been investigating;

It’s ‘Create’ time!


Golden Book Certificates
6Y – Adhaf Hussian
6D – Alvin Law
6H – Katelyn Ma

Transdisciplinary Theme: Sharing the Planet

Central Idea- Reaching a resolution during periods of conflict is influenced by the actions and reactions of all involved.

Lines of Inquiry  – We will inquire into.

Causes of conflict (causation, perspective)

Conflict resolution and management (responsibility)

Our responsibility as a member of a community. (Responsibility)


Students have been working towards their ‘create’ where they have been taking ownership of how to share their learning. 


Number Maths – Operations

Central Idea –We use the same rules for the computation of decimal fractions as for whole numbers

How are the four rules related to each other?

In what ways can we record the rules for a pattern in addition and subtraction?


Strand Maths – Shape and Space

Central Idea – Conversion of units and measurements allows us to make sense of the world we live in.

In Number Math, the children are sharing strategies around solving multiplication and division problems. They have been taking it in turns to be the teacher for one another and explain their thinking and step by step process to solve more complex questions.

In Strand Math, we will be moving on to the properties of 3D shape. This will involve exploring nets and constructing shapes with different materials.




In classes, we have read ‘Half A Man’ and paid close attention to the changing relationship between Michael and his grandpa. The children have used context clues to make predictions, pick up on character traits and add detail to the story behind Grandpa’s journey.
