What better way to learn about measurement than to get hands on? To learn about 3D shapes and cubic measurements, we built our own shapes! To learn about volume, capacity and conversions, we conducted an experiment splashing around real water.
We have lift off! As part of our inquiry unit, we have been learning about forces and rockets. To further our understanding, we constructed water rockets to test the forces of push, pull and gravity. We had a lot of fun experimenting with our creations!
Did you know that the 5/6 unit has been busy learning about Australian history? This week we learned all about how the early settlers of Australia lived and survived. With limited resources, Daimler was very common amongst the colonies. What better way to learn than to bake our own and taste what it was like?
Coding classes are back up and running at Bethal Primary School. Our 5/6 students are enjoying building on the skills that they developed through the SCOPEIT coding program last year. Already we have seen some creative projects and games being developed. Watch this space over the next few weeks for updates on what our students…
Mr Tran has impressed us all with his amazing maths skills. Did you know that he has a trick for multiplying numbers by 99? Well, we all know the trick now too! During these lessons, the 5/6 students practiced working with different multiplication strategies and applying algebraic formulas to their mental processes. Mr Tran was…
In 5/6B, we have been enhancing our stories by making sure they begin with a sizzling start. The best stories get straight into the action – they know that an author only has seven seconds to get a readers attention, so they explain their characters and setting later on. Have a look at some of…
We finished off our inquiry unit last term by creating SLAM poems about African children who live in poverty. I was particularly impressed with our students ability to express their poems effectively through emotion and various persuasive devices. Click below to watch our students in action. Well done guys!
Congratulations to Hasan! He wrote an outstanding Slam Poem and responded positively to feedback from his teacher and peers. Keep working hard, Hasan.
Congratulations to Ayaat for being our classroom pupil of the week. Ayaat has developed some outstanding maths skills this year and I know that Ms Selamet has been very impressed with her English development as well. Keep working hard Ayaat, we love having you in 5/6B!
This term we’ve been working in teams to solve multi step maths problems using the Bethal Problem Solving process. Have a look at our mathematicians in action!
