Dear  5A Parents,


We have a field trip on Wednesday, September 5 to Pok Fu Lam Village. The purpose of this trip is to expose students to circumstances that other people live in. This is a fascinating little enclave of squatter homes and it has a rich culture. It was acknowledged by its inclusion on the 2014 World Monuments Watch by the World Monuments Fund.


Departure: 11:45pm

Return: 1:20pm

Please return your child’s permission slip by Monday 3rd September 2018

Thank you to all of you who volunteered, we now have enough parents helpers.

Hi, this is this is the 5A blog post I am a student my name is Jaiden. It’s been a fantastic start to the year we have done so many different activities it almost feels like a month passed by already and it’s only been a week!

Our teacher is Ms.Goodwin she is really good at English and she is extremely helpful when you need help in basically anything.

Now for the activities, on the first day, we tried to figure out the locks. At first, we thought it was really hard, so we played a few games trying to master the lock. At the end of the game we almost mastered the lock, but sometimes it did not work now at the end of the week we can open it up with ease.   It’s been an amazing start and we can’t wait to see what’s to come.

Coat of arms :

On Monday we made a coat of arms so we could identify whos locker is who’s  
so all of us took out our art books to think of ideas of what to do
For our coat of arms, we took a long time to think. 
I eventually found a good idea that was a shield containing a sword, 
axe and two lions. After we designed our coat of arms, we also 
needed to put a post-it note saying why we chose 
the colours and objects. (explanation why It's there )

This week we have been setting our class norms and expectations.

We thought long and hard about what behaviours stopped us from learning in the past and what action we can take in order for us to have a successful Grade 5.

Here is our Essential Agreements.

Although these may be difficult for us to achieve all the time we will remain positive and continue to grow in order to achieve the best we can.
