Our Grade 5 students start the year armed with their iPads and ready to join the 1 to 1 iPad Program. Our Inquiry based unit for Term one investigates, ‘How Australia Became a Nation’. We focus on the years 1801 – 1900 and the events during this time that formed the nation and how the Indigenous population was affected. Students will form their own inquiry questions and select creative ways to share their understandings.
First term is also an introduction to Interschool Sports for Grade 5 students. After team selections, Friday mornings become a hive of activity as players head off to their various Summer sports.
