9.30-10.40.- When you have completed the maths test complete the activity about nouns. You will need to concentrate. There are several of you who have the sheet already.

Please remain quiet whilst the other children complete the test.

10.30.-Recess Begin group correction of the test. This can be done earlier if you have all finished. Use a red pen please to correct your work. Circle any questions where you have an incorrect answer. Discussions can take place as you correct.


11.10-12.00. On the maths page of the blog is a plan for Planet Shakers (the venue of the Graduation ceremony). There are several questions to answer. Choose a task that suits your understandings. Try to challenge yourself, but also do this task independently. You may ask the teacher questions.

NB. You need to allow for 25 teachers to attend. Remember they will sit beside you in the front 5 rows. (As per the photocopied sheet.) Make sure you have this sheet to refer to.

12.00-12.45. Complete the tree diagram sheet below. If you did not finish the ones handed out last week then this needs to be completed as well. Glue the sheet into your maths book. You need to choose your own task with 3 different options. Discuss this with the teacher before you start.


If you complete this early there are some fun maths challenges for you to complete. Miss Clark is really good at making them so have a go at them. Choose one that interests you. You may discuss it with a friend. They are below.


Show all your working for each task in your maths book.

Tuesday 30th October


9.00-9.15 Roll/Monitors

9.15-10.00 Lit Circles-conference with King Arthur group

10.00-10.45  Lit Circles-conference with Winn Dixie group


11.10-12.00 Check homework-6C blog-Sudoku-this should have been    completed by last Friday. Check the character studies and the quality of the completed work.

12.00-12.45 Maths-


Discuss the different graphs. Make suggestions why ages vary, what the data tells us and make some generalizations.

Using this tool at the side of the graph make some comparisons about the different ages. Have a look at the ages of children at 10,11,12,13. Then discuss whether our grade sizes reflect these statistics.

Things to think about and discuss.

The age ranges for males and females varies widely across Australia, which may come as a surprise. Take a look at the age and gender profiles of the following areas:

  • Green Point, NSW, 2251
  • City, ACT, 2601
  • Cairns City, Qld, 4870
  • Esperance, WA, 6450
  • Kosciuszko National Park, NSW, 2625
  • Margaret River, WA, 6285
  • Hahndorf, SA, 5245
  • Anglesea, Vic, 3230
  • Kakadu, NT, 0822

Think about how the communities in those different areas might be characterised – lots of young professionals, lots of older retirees, a population with shorter lifespan – and some of the possible reasons for the age and gender profiles of each area.


See if you can find data for another country. Explain to the others in the grade about the results of the data. Make some comparative statements that explain similarities and differences. Why did you choose that country?

Think of something that interests you. Can you find data to show information about your interest? eg How many people live in country areas of Victoria? How many people have more than 3 cars at their house?

Is it helpful to compare the percentages (%) or the actutal numbers of data?

Discuss and make comments in your maths project book. Print out some data and make some comments about the data you have found.


1.50-3.30- completing the rough plan of your film. You need to make sure that all group members have a task to do. Perhaps someone could be making notes about the costumes or props needed whilst the others are completing their rough drafts of the planning documents.

Your plans should be completed by the end of the double session. Remember that the illustrations are not to be completed with huge amounts of detail. The remainder of the plan should have everything included so that the story boarder has all the information they need to complete the illustrations and text.

Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds in photographyThe Rule of Thirds is perhaps the most well-known ‘rule’ of photographic composition.The “Rule of Thirds” one of the first things that budding photographers learn about in classes on photography and rightly so as it is the basis for well balanced and interesting shots.I will say right up front however that rules are meant to be broken and ignoring this one doesn’t mean your images are necessarily unbalanced or uninteresting. However a wise person once told me that if you intend to break a rule you should always learn it first to make sure your breaking of it is all the more effective!TASK 1.

  • Make sure you understand the concepts highlighted in red.
  • Use a thesaurus or dictionary to find other words that could replace the red words but remember to make sure the words fit with the text.
  • Create a glossary for words in the paragraphs that you think would help others understand the concepts more clearly.



Read the information about ‘Rule of Thirds’ and summarize (using illustrations if you need) to demonstrate your understanding of how this rule will help you to make your photography better.

Welcome back to Term 3.

Our topic for this term is Needs and Wants with an economic focus.






Hi everyone,

I will bring in some coins for 5c Frenzy on Wednesday, so we can worry about that then.  I raced off to the bank on Friday for you!!!

I have worked out the ribbons for your atheletics day. There is a note on Mrs Mossuto’s table so that you can collect the ribbons today from Vanessa at the office. The girls who went down last week can go and get them.


Remember that it is PLANNING WEEK! That means we won’t have specialist programs on Wednesday morning.There should be sport training  -weather permitting.

You will not need your iPads tomorrow, but Hannah, can you please go and check whether all the Grade 6s will be told that. Thanks.

Here are the tasks for you to complete today. We can leave the order up to Mrs Mossuto.

  • paste the ‘Switches’ sheets into your Inquiry books. They need a little work on them but we will do that on Wednesday.
  • REVERSE sheet. It’s practise for homophones. It’s a bit tricky.    .                                                                                                          Find a homophones resource on your iPad if you need help with working them out.
  • Complete the spelling sheet. Remember to explain why/how you KNOW that the words are misspelt. Use your WREAD notes to help you work them out.
  • Long multiplication. YOU MUST SHOW ALL YOUR WORKING. I want to see the carrying digits.                                                                                                        Make sure you have placed your digits in the correct columns.                                                                                                                                                                           Do you have the zeroes in the correct place to hold the place value?
  • There is a book report format below. You will be completing this on your iPad. If you have completed any of the tasks above, then whilst you are waiting you can begin the book report.

Perhaps after lunch………

  • Housing Estate
  • Energy project.

Your task is to complete a book report about your Literature Circles book.

Things you will need to include:

Use these points as a check list. 

Copy and paste the questions onto new page on your iPad.
You can complete the book report on your iPad or on a separate piece of lined paper.
This page will be included in your book report. Highlight each section as you complete it.
  1. The title of your book. (and a photo of your book)
  2. Your name at the top of the page.
  3. The author of your book.
  4. Write in detail about a minimum of 3 characters. You need to include who they are, what were they like (personality), what role they played in the book and what you personally thought about the character (whether you liked them or not).  Set out the information under a heading for each character. You may like to decorate the headings and present them in an attractive way.
  5. The setting: You need to write in detail about the setting of the book. Where did the story take place? What were the places like? What kind of environment did the story take place in. (You may need to describe more than one setting if your story took place in more than one area). Find a paragraph that describes a place from the story. Take a photo of the text and include it on your page.
  6. Find some images of the country where the book is set. Think about the story and make decisions about the photos you choose. Copy and paste some appropriate images onto your book report.
  7. Summary: Give a detailed summary of what happens throughout the story. Include the introduction of the book and the main plot points throughout.
  8. Conclusion: How did the story end? Was the conflict resolved? Do you feel that the ending of the book was satisfying? Why do you feel that way?
  9. Recommendation: You need to convince someone to read this book. Write down the things you would say to encourage a friend to borrow this book from the library and read it. Think about what made the book enjoyable, whether it made you need to keep turning pages to find out what happened. Write your paragraph for this answer as a persuasive piece that uses high modal language.
  10. Follow up: Find out another book that was written by the same author as your Lit. Circle book. Write down the title and explain in your own words what the blurb says the book is about. Would you be interested in reading this book? Why/why not? You should write about a paragraph (6-10 lines).
