Japanese – Grade 5/6

Once again the hiragana writing script is being revisited. Students have been perfecting their stroke order and better matching the hiragana characters with their correct sounds.

Hi to everyone in the HWPS Sporting Community.

It’s been a busy term in Sport & PE at HWPS. Our Swimming carnival was a huge success with over 200 students at Ashburton Pool for a great day of swimming. Congratulations to all students involved with Freeman taking the title! Well done to all students that progressed to Kew District swimming, Boroondara Divisional swimming & Eastern Region swimming.

Interschool Sport has been running smoothly thanks to the dedication of all our students, Grade 5/6 teachers and helpers. The results and sportsmanship has been outstanding. We all look forward to Gala Day at Mcleay Park on Thursday 3rd April.

It’s been great working with all the new classes in PE in Term One. The Foundation students have settled in nicely. Our Running Club on Tuesday mornings received overwhelming support with over 70 students gearing up for Cross Country! Keep working hard everyone!

HWPS Cross Country is on Thursday 24th April. Thanks to all the parents and teachers for your input and support this term!

Take it easy. Sam 🙂

Grade 5/6 Photography

I spy with my little eye, a paper clip that’s blue, a cheeky monkey and the number 2.

IMG_4854The Grade 5/6 students have created a photo based on the popular I Spy books from the LRC. Working in groups, they created their theme page and wrote short sentences we can read with their work.

We will be working on the photo editing process and adding the text this coming week. We will display our finished work in the corridor for all to enjoy.
