Year 6 Mass Presentation

Take a look at the Year 6 Mass Presentation held last week. The song was called 'Wake' talking about how God can wake inside of us our hopes, dreams and desires. We have to first seek the kingdom of God then we will have everything we need.

Remember Poems

As part of our writing- we have looked at creating a moment in time poem. We wrote about events in our holidays and specifically developed having one idea per paragraph. Take a look at some of our amazing finished products.

That was Summer

Remember Danseys Pass Holiday Park? With all the sleepovers and making new friends, going on the river swing hoping not to fall off?
Remember the movie night? Staying up late and all the popcorn? Playing Uno & Cluedo while drinking juice?
That was Summer.

Remember Natashas wedding? Seeing family, All dressing up for the big day? All the clothes shopping we did?
Remember the bright pink car? All the funny moments? All the food & drinks? Waiting in anticipation for the bride?
That was Summer.  

Remember Caroline bay? All the Hot Dogs, Chips and fizzy? The playground and the pool? The Train ride around the bay?
Do you remember the Ferris wheel? Tipping back and  forth when it stopped? Hoping not to fall out as well as all the games?
That was Summer.

That was my holiday

Remember Sitting in the boiling car,leaning out the window and asking “Are we there yet?”
Remember Stopping to get lunch,in the middle of our movie,but too tired to get out?
THat was my holiday.

Remember those gifts getting opened,The summer heat pushing through the house when we drink ice-cold lemonade?
Remember Running to the swings,and waiting for your next swing,Until the other person gets off?
That was my holiday.

Remember Finding a park at the hool pools and you park More than a Km away
Do you remember Waiting in that line for the water slides,But you give up and just sit in the hot pool instead?

That was my holiday...

About Me Artwork

Our classroom is shaping up and really taking shape. We have been working hard to complete some 'About Me' art pieces which are now hanging in the Year 6 classroom.

St Dominic

As a school we have looked at St Dominic. Each class is focusing on specific areas about his life. We are putting this together to create an A4 art piece by week 5


Year 5 and 6 have been training hard getting ready for the Swimming Sports which are fast approaching. Already we have seen confidence grow and students learn some great skills.

We are One in a Minion

The Year 6 class theme is Minions. We have looked at what makes a positive classroom environment and the types of behaviours we need to show to one another and to ourselves. Once everyone was happy with this we all signed the paper with our thumb print and signature. It now hangs above our whiteboard as a constant reminder of the class expectations

Activator Sport

We had our first session with YouthTown doing an Activator Sport program. So much fun building relationships as a team, working with each other and learning how to communicate well together.
We can't wait for our next session

Term 1 Week 2 Senior Hub

Here are some examples of writing about a moment of time. Our class spent time outside siting on the grass on the school field noticing what we saw, heard and felt. We focused on showing rather than telling the experience. This way we intend the reader to be able to make pictures in their head as they read.

Houses up on the hill. Grass is swaying, weeds killing beautiful plants. A school with people working inside. A playground and another playground. Grass is tickling my skin. Wind is blowing on me making me cold. Cars are zooming past and making all sorts of noise.

Me and my friends are sharing ideas. There are seagulls making  loud noises in the background.  Seagulls are drifting through the air.  Cars are zooming past. The sun is shining brightly on my back. The grass is waving under and around me.

The mud is in the ruts of the track and laughter is being shared. A broken piece of tennis ball lies on the track.

Children are whispering. I look at seagulls waddling like penguins in a dance group. The breeze is calming me with a gentle touch. Cars are booming and rumbling past.
