Welcome to Term 1

Year 5

Now members of the ‘Senior School’, our Year 5 students are focused and determined to reach great heights. They are excited to take on greater responsibility and leadership roles as they prepare for Year 6. The four teachers there to inspire them throughout the year are Mrs Nikki Heffernan, Ms Kelly Morton, Miss Molly Clarke and Miss Pru Freeth.

Safer Internet Day

We have had a fantastic start to our year here in year 5 and we are looking forward to what the year ahead holds for us all. We have introduced our Learning Exploration topic of, “Responsible digital citizens understand that their actions have consequences” and this tied in nicely with Safer Internet Day on Tuesday in which we all discussed the influence of digital technology. We each created our own pledge to promise to make the internet a safer and more caring place. Here in year 5, we are excited by the prospect of being leaders and have shown our leadership working alongside our prep buddies. On Thursday we had a fantastic time together, reading picture story books, getting to know wonderful stories and getting to know each other! We cannot wait to see that the rest of term 1 is going to bring!

Western Bulldogs

We have continued with our fantastic start to year 5 and have settled into our classrooms and routines. We showed our exceptional swimming skills at our house swimming day, excelled at teamwork in year 5 sport and have persuaded our peers and teachers with our persuasive writing in class. We had the great privilege to talk and complete drills with two fantastic Western Bulldog players Lin Jong and Fergus Greene who came to R.H.C.S to talk to us about setting goals and leadership. If we keep our positive mindsets and excitement for learning, we know grade 5 is going to be the best year ever!
