Homework


For many of our students, there has not been a big emphasis on homework during Primary.  However, it has become apparent that greater consideration needs to be given to Year 6 and preparing them for further education, so changes to Homework have been made to help in this transition process. 


Firstly, Homework has been up until now been the following:
  • Diary sighted and signed by Parents '
  • 3 Mathletics tasks
  • 1 studyladder task
These activities are designed to support the learning that is happening in the classroom. Each student has been given the access codes to the websites. 
Year 6 students need to learn to use their diaries more effectively for greater organisational skills.  Regular times during the week will be made available for students to record any activities that are happening. They will also be setting a goal to complete. Students will present their diaries to be signed on a weekly basis. The diaries need to be presented each Monday so that they can stamp their homework chart as being completed. Our students are also needing to learn how to organise their time to complete work at home. Learning to set time aside and study will become an essential skill as they prepare for high school. 
To help with this process, assignments will be implemented which will be marked and feedback was given. The purpose of these tasks is to help develop time management skills. There will be allowances in class, for the students to reflect on how well they managed their time to complete the work. Feedback will also be provided on how they can improve.

If your child is having difficulties at all with homework, please put a note in the diary and get them to show their teacher.

Homework Assignment 

The Homework Project is due on Friday 15th June. It is a writing task on the website STORYBIRD.
Please log in with the log in that I gave you and not change the Username please. If you have difficulties please let me know.

The Assignment brief is:

Choose a piece of art and write a poem in praise of what you see. Write this poem using your own words in a single-chapter Longform book. (Read the Rules below.) An ode is a type of lyric poem devoted to the praise of a person, animal, thing, or idea. An ode expresses deep feelings about the subject. Unlike sonnets, which are always fourteen lines, villanelles which follow a rhyming pattern, or haikus, odes do not have to follow a set form.

Once you have completed your poem, please copy and paste the link into the Classroom Assignment Post.

The Burnt Stick- A Personal Response

Stories can help us see, the experiences and emotions of other people. Using stories to empathise with another person's life can be a powerful way to change the views that we might hold about other people. It puts us into their shoes, and see another person's life through their eyes.

The Burnt Stick is a book written with that intention. The story is about an aboriginal boy called John Jagamarra who was taken from his family when he was 5 years old. He was taken by the Welfare man to live with the Fathers at Pearl Bay Mission for Aboriginal Children, to learn the ways of the white man.

The students in Stage 3 have been learning about how to write a personal response to a story. Personal responses come in many forms but always need to have a summary of the story and a personal response or opinion about it.

The criteria for our personal response is:



The starting point for the writing was to brainstorm ideas about the feelings and thoughts about the story. What would it like to …

"My Country" Poetry Writing

Words can have an impact when we use them in ways that create images and evoke emotions. Poetry is a way of writing that allows someone to communicate these images and emotions in a deeply personal way. They require creativity and thought about a subject, often using a limited amount of words to so.
Dorothea Mackellar is an Australian poet, who uses imagery in her poetry to great effect. They portray her love of her country by creating images of colour and ruggedness through a rich use of descriptive words. The most famous of her poems is called "My country", which the students then compared to another poem of hers called "Colours of the Light".


After completing the lessons on imagery from these poems, we came up with a definition and looked at the words that can evoke the 5 senses. 
To start the process of using imagery in our own writing, we brainstormed ideas for poems. This helps the process of pre-writing. Getting ideas written down assists the students' …
