Year 5/6

TERM 4 2023


Can you believe it is Term 4 already? It is an exciting term, the final one at Nar Nar Goon Primary School for our Year 6’s.




Reading - This term we will be reading ‘Hatchet’ as our cohort novel. Our focus will centre on the main character and his thoughts, feelings and decision making throughout the text. There will be a strong focus on vocabulary which we will draw from the novel.


Our Numeracy focus this term will be on Financial Mathematics, Shape, Location and Transformation, and Data Representation. We will be introducing an exciting new program where students will have the opportunity to earn and spend money similar to real life scenarios. Open Learning will commence in week 1 and students will be split into their ability groups, learning to a targeted point of need. 


Writing this term will include Narratives, Poetry and Letter Writing. As always, our VOICES program provides students with essential writing skills and we will be looking into each of these traits throughout the term. We will use mentor texts to support and enhance student’s writing. Soundwaves remains a core focus for spelling and expanding students’ vocabulary.


Our Inquiry focus this term is Geography. Students will be exploring natural disasters, their impact and how our preparations impact the severity of the outcome.


In Digital Technologies, students will be exploring Artificial Intelligence and coding with robotics.


Kind Regards,

5/6 Team

Mr. Marsland and Mrs. Kingston
