After working in groups for our Installation Art unit, Grade 5 students have been busy planning and designing an individual art project based on their own interests. The theme for this unit is under Who We Are while focusing on the central idea of “creations reflect our sense of self.”
Grade 5 students chose a medium they liked to work with and a topic or theme that they were interested in creating an art work about. There are a wide range of projects being worked on from drawing and painting to clay, paper sculpture, and digital art pieces. As the students finish their projects they will begin creating artist statements while preparing how to share and present their final piece to others.

March 29th is the Grade 1 to 5 sports day, we will begin preparing students for this during PE class over the next 3 weeks – some classes have already started.
The focus of this day is Healthy Competition.
Using the PSPE framework of Identity, Active Living, and Interactions we can explain the day like this –
§ Students will identify within their house group whilst competing in Active athletic events of entailing Running, jumping, and throwing, all the while Interacting and participating within the whole sports day.
One thing we would like to establish with all students is that whilst we can’t all be Usain Bolt we can all improve our speed by focusing on our technique. Attached to this blog post are some very broad tips for running faster – we will be exploring these more in class during the next few weeks.

It’s hard to believe that our exhibition is starting next week! Please make sure you make some time to have a talk at home about your child’s passion and where they think they would like their exhibition to go.
Attached are the slides from last weeks parents presentation.

We had the first round of our science experiments last week and will be using this to finish off the writing we have started. The results were mixed with no real dramatic reactions, but it was still lots of fun!
This week has seen us continue with our battery of fitness tests.
We have also introduced the movement and vault assignment for the next 6 weeks – Please see the documents attached.
As we move closer to sports day (March 29th) all students will be looking at Run/Jump/Throw activities also. So please talk to your students about their vault and movement assignments and keep March 29th free!
