  5. Year 5/6 Learning Neighbourhoods

    AMpThu, 13 Sep 2012 02:52:55 -040052Thursday 14, 2009 by Grade56neighbourhood blog

    Year 5/6 Learning Neighbourhoods

    Our more streamlined approach to having the children sign in (with teacher supervision) when they arrive, get their belongings from their lockers and go directly to the learning area where they need to be, is working well. It eliminates time spent waiting for rolls to be marked. Both neighbourhoods are now available for all the children and they have expressed pleasure at having more spaces on offer to support the range of learning they need to undertake. This is in line with the school’s Strategic Plan improvement strategy – to develop consistency in student programs and organisation throughout the years of schooling.

    As a result of recommendations deriving from a project undertaken last year by a group of children in collaboration with designer, Mary Featherston, the learning spaces will continue to be developed. During the holidays tiered seating will be put in the viewing room and work booths will be also be installed.

    We are enjoying the evolution of our Year 5/6 neighbourhood and look forward to the many possibilities this offers.

    Year 5/6 Learning Neighbourhoods

    Throughout out Inquiry, Alice in Wonderland, the two Year 5/6 neighbourhoods combined to use the learning spaces in a way that best supported the learning. This was a positive experience in that it ensured equitable and effective use of the spaces and resources.

    We will continue in this way into the future which will ensure consistency of approach across the Year 5/6 level.

    To support and assist the children with getting to workshops, targeted teaching sessions or learning agreement time promptly we will move all lockers into Neighbourhood 1. This will allow the children to sign in (with teacher supervision) when they arrive, get their belongings from their lockers and go directly to the learning area where they need to be.

    Children will remain in their current home groups, programs will continue as in the past and their learning will continue to be tracked as it has to date.

    The combined 5/6 office will be in Neighbourhood 1 to align with the rest of the school who share a team office.

  12. Transition

    PMpWed, 30 Nov 2011 17:14:06 -040014Wednesday 14, 2009 by Grade56neighbourhood blog

    whole school community including children, parents and staff are experiencing
    the transition of children from one year level to another.

    familiarise themselves with new home groups and neighbourhoods the children
    will partake in 4 transition sessions. Three will take place on 5th,
    6th, 7th December from 10am to 11:15. The children will
    spend time in their 2012 neighbourhoods with their team of teachers and groups.
    They will familiarise themselves with the new learning spaces, discuss learning
    possibilities and partake in learning agreement activities with all of their 2012
    teachers.  Older children will be
    mentoring and offering advice to the younger ones. The children will have lunch
    in their new spaces as part of each session. The aim is to make all children
    feel comfortable, confident and excited about their next year level. Consistency
    in learning across the school aims to make this a seamless process.

    Tuesday 20th December there will be a fourth transition session where
    the children will be introduced to their 2012 home teacher as well as working
    in their new neighbourhoods for 1 hour. This will take place from 2.30 to 3.30.
    The children will be dismissed from their new neighbourhoods on this day.

    period of change is both challenging and exciting in which children and
    families adjust to expectations, interactions and relationships.


    Pathways and Transitions.

  13. The Diary of Mary Talence

    AMpWed, 23 Feb 2011 05:23:29 -040023Wednesday 14, 2009 by Grade56neighbourhood blog

    mary TalenceIn class we have been identifying our own individual identity, our Australian identity and now we are investigating people who lost their identity. “The Diary of Mary Talence” will be read and discussed with the students over the next few weeks.

    Set in Sydney, 1937, this is the fictional diary of a young aboriginal girl, a member of the Stolen Generation.

     She is given the diary by the Sister in charge of Bomaderry Aboriginal Children’s Home and through its pages she describes her life – from her arrival there, aged five, through her struggle to understand why she was taken from her real mother, to her adoption at ten years of age by a white Catholic family in St.Ives.

    Mary Talence, birth name Amy Charles, is increasingly confused – and then ashamed – as she is taught that white skinned is good, black skinned is bad. She longs to understand why this is so but finds that logical questions – almost any questions – provoke anger and accusations of ingratitude from her white family. Her music – her beautiful voice and her ability to make up songs – is her greatest source of comfort.
