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 reading homework is due on Wednesday #no excuses!!!

Your last day for swimming is tomorrow. Do Not forget your swimming things (especially those who forgot last week!)

You will have a different teacher for Tuesday as it is PLANNING DAY FOR GRADE 6S

Use these points as a check list.

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.

  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).

The Climb- Graduation song


The Climb

Miley Cyrus

I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head saying
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high


There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb


The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I
I gotta be strong
Just keep pushing on, ’cause


There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb (yeah)





There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes you gonna have to lose
Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb (yeah yeah ea ea)


Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It’s all about
It’s all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

Whoa oh oh
