Literacy Pro

Image result for literacy pro

All students in Room 8 have now completed their LitPro test.

The LitPro Test is used to assess their independent comprehension level. They should all be aware of their score and be choosing appropriately levelled books when they visit the library. 
The more books they read and then complete the corresponding LitPro quizzes, the more chance our class has of reading the most words in the school!
We would like everyone to have one of their Lexile books at school every day to read during quiet time after lunch.

Go Room 8!

Parent Teacher Meeting

Thank You  😊

We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents/care givers who came along to the Parent Teacher Meeting in Week 3. It was a great turn out.

The Year 4 and Year 5 mathematics and literacy standards were given out, along with a copy of the teacher power point. If you were unable to attend and did not receive the handouts, please call into the classroom and pick up a copy of all the information.


 Investigating Square Numbers

Investigating and problem solving are an important part of our mathematics lessons in Room 8. A problem is something you do not immediately know how to solve.
The students were set a collaborative task where they had to extend a pattern and relate it to how square numbers work.
All teams did a fantastic job, even on such a warm and humid day!
We are always impressed to see the children sharing ideas, listening to each other and not being afraid to 'have a go'.
