During Reading we are gradually introducing students to Reading using the CAFE method of teaching reading strategies.

The Literacy CAFE™ System helps students understand and master
the four key components of successful reading:
Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary

The CAFE Menu breaks each component—comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expanding vocabulary—into significant strategies that support each goal. Posted on the classroom wall and built throughout the year, it serves as a visual reminder of whole-class instruction as well as individual student goals.

We also use The CAFE System to assess, instruct, and monitor student progress. It provides tools for constructing group and individual lessons that provide just-in-time instruction, ensuring that all students reach their potential.

This term we continued our learning about the events of Holy Week leading up to the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the tradition of the Easter story. We followed on by introducing the students to the story of Pentecost Sunday. This helps us to also learn about the sacrament of Confirmation, which our Year 6 buddies are preparing for and will be receiving in the next few weeks.

Throughout this term we have investigated the skinks that inhabit our schoolyard.

We have learnt a lot by observing, questioning, investigating, asking an expert, wondering, viewing clips and researching information.

We have found out about the skinks preferred habitat and then designed a skink friendly garden. We have then tried to create our own skink friendly habitat spaces within our schoolyard.

This term our unit of Inquiry is focused on the living creatures in our school environment. We have been out in the school garden observing and exploring.

We have noticed that there are many creatures including skinks that inhabit our school yard.

We wanted to find out more about skinks and other creatures so called in an expert from Reptile Encounters.

Kara answered all of our questions and helped us to learn more about various reptiles. Some of the reptiles she showed us do not live in our school environment but they were very interesting to learn more about.
