A very busy term is about to end. Students worked well and put effort to achieve expected outcomes. In Science this term, students learnt about light and now are in the process of making a periscope. Students conducted a few hands-on experiments that they enjoyed. In Technology this term, students are at the final stages of making a solar operated car. Students loved this project despite the difficulties we came across and they are looking forward to testing them. As you are aware students in year 5 have a NAPLAN test coming up in Term 2. Numeracy contains many topics and some of these topics are difficult for some student particularly during tests. Hence, please explain to your child the importance of reading questions carefully, solving problems step by step and checking answers. Lots of students make simple errors during tests by rushing and because of stress. Finally, we wish you a safe and happy two weeks.
