 GRADE FIVE & SIX 

GRADE FIVE & SIX:

Reviewing the Term that was.

 

Last term our topic for inquiry was Relationships, Identity and Culture. We learnt about discrimination and prejudice. Types of discrimination were age, appearance, gender, culture, disability, race, and wealth. The meaning of prejudice was to pre-judge someone without any knowledge. We also did the Amazing Race, it taught us about team work and leadership.

Our project was to pick an anti- discrimination group and research the process to make a complaint. Then we had to code a bot through the process. Other students researched individual people who made a stand against discrimination or prejudice. We were encouraged to create motivational quotes to inspire people.

This term

 

Grade 5/6 students will be focusing on Biological Science- Adaptations.

 

We have have visitors from the Marine Mammal organization to help us find out about marine mammals and also an excursion to the Serendip Sanctuary with park rangers. Our key understanding are:

 

  • The growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment.

  • Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment.

  • People and environmental conditions affect the survival of living things.
