Year 5 Snap Shot

Students in Year 5 have jumped back into Term 3 with enthusiasm. During Semester One the Year 5 focus was on establishing learning routines and organisational practices to support every student to develop the independent learning skills they need in the middle years of their schooling. This focus will continue in Term Three with an expectation of increasing independence and student responsibility.
