Equipment and stationery – most children have made a great start to the year and have brought the correct equipment. However, some students have not and it is essential that they bring all of the items listed on the letter that they received at the end of Year 5.
If your child has lost the letter, they need to ask their class teacher for another copy.
If you have not already done so, please purchase a cheap pair of in-ear earphones for your children to keep in school at all times. We use the Chromebooks to enhance many areas of the curriculum, in order to get the most out of the programs we use, earphones as a must. They are available from Japanese Home Centre (JHC) for 50HKD.
Scientific investigations can help people to make sense of the world.
Lines of Inquiry
- What scientific inquiry is (Form)
- How the scientific process is used (Function)
- How scientific investigations have impacted the world around us (Connection)
During this unit, the aim will be to develop the children’s understanding of the scientific process, changing variables and the effect of science around the world.
Central Idea: We use the same rules for the computation of decimal fractions as for whole numbers
By the end of Year 6 children should be able to:
Apply place value to partition and rename numbers to thousandths
Recognise, and order integers (including negative integers)
Recognise, model and order decimal fractions to thousandths or beyond.
Round decimal fractions to the nearest tenth or whole number
Central Idea: Writers use carefully crafted language to educate and inspire
This unit will involve us using inspiring and educational language to inform people about the effects of scientific investigation around the world.
Please continue with Mathletics/Prodigy at home.
Although Reading Journals are not yet in action, please continue to read every night a book that you enjoy and that is challenging.
