Term 1, Week 3

Hi Parents and students,

Welcome to Week 3!

With 2 weeks already down and our swimming lessons now complete, I officially declare the Year Six Class, open for business!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend and are ready for a busy week ahead.

Below you will find some important information, upcoming events and learning intentions for the week.

Affirmation of the Week:

Parent Information Night:
I hope to see you all on Tuesday evening for the Year 6 Information Night. The evening will begin at 5:00pm in the hall. Classroom sessions will start at 5:30pm. Please make your way to the Year 6 classroom as swiftly as possible. If you are unsure where the Year 6 classroom is, look for the room with a view J

Ash Wednesday:
This Wednesday signifies the beginning of Lent. The staff and students will participate in a service to mark this occasion Students from the Catholic Community Ministry will assist on the day.


Under this section you will find the literacy learning intentions for the week.

Over the past week, the Year 6’s have been becoming familiar with ‘VOICES’ and ‘CAFÉ-R’. I will explain in a little more detail (parent night) on what this means but in short, ‘VOICES’ refers to the traits of good writers and ‘CAFÉ-R’ refers to the traits of good readers. Both of these will form the foundation of the Literacy Program this year.

The spelling program ‘Words Their Way’ will begin this week. All students have been tested and placed in groups according to their individual needs.

The students will begin to plan their first narrative for the term.


Under this section you will find the Numeracy learning intentions for the week.

The students have completed a pre-test for the concepts that we will be covering this term. This allows me to cater for each child's individual learning needs. The same test will be given at the end of the term and the students will be able to see first-hand, the progress they have made.

This week, we will be covering the concept of ‘reading and understanding numbers’.

Home Learning Grid:

You can find a copy of the current Home Learning Grid via 'OneNote' on your child's iPad. They will also receive a hard copy. This copy will be glued into their Home Learning Exercise books for you to sign. I will explain this in more detail on Tuesday night.

Enjoy the week,

Mr Jones
