Term 4 Newsletter Dianella

14 December 2021

This term the students of Year 5 have been learning about the different states of matter in Science. Students have observed and conducted various investigations to identify whether a material is a solid, liquid or gas. Here the students are designing their own posters explaining the three different states of matter and their observable properties.

The students have also been demonstrating excellent mathematics and English skills. To enhance the students learning and creativity we decided to allow the students to develop their collaborative skills by working in groups to create gameboards. The gameboards are to incorporate either Math’s or English content. The results were amazing with very creative and abstract ideas. Students use these board games to challenge each other and also to improve their mental maths and spelling understanding. The students encountered problems which they had to resolve as a group making them more independent thinker who re future ready.
