Term 1, Week 6:
This week students have been working on writing peoms about Australia and Australian people. Students have the option to enter their poem in the Man From Snowy River Festival Bush Poetry competition. Entry forms were handed to all students and if they choose to enter they need to return their signed entry form and entry fee ($1 per category) to school before Friday the 17th of March. Students also have the option to enter the performance category. The poetry performance will be held at the Youth Club Hall on Thursday April 3 and the entire grade 5/6 class will be walking down to watch the performances - regardless of whether they have entries.
Also we are heading to Tallangatta on Thursday next week (13th March) and students will need to remember to bring their hat, drink bottle and rubbish free/low rubbish lunch and to wear full school uniform. Our bus to Tallangatta will be leaving Corryong College at 9.05am and returning by 3.15pm so bus students will be able to travel on their buses as normal.
Don't forget that Monday March 10th is a public holiday and Tuesday March 11th is a Pupil Free Day. Enjoy your extra long weekend!

Term 1, Week 4:

This week we have the Swimming Carnival on Wednesday, and we look forward to seeing all of the students participate. Our homework program begins this week with both Mathsmate and Reading tasks due on the appropriate date. Please remember that the Mathsmate pads have arrived at the College and can be collected at the General Office.
We continue this week looking at what makes an ideal citizen, analysing the values held by certain prominent citizens. This will help us to reflect on our own values and perhaps cause us to question why we hold the values that we do. In maths we will investigate the methods we use to add numbers and how these can be used to solve word problems.
Our Information Night will be held on Thrusday and we look forward to seeing you there. Please remember that you can follow us on both Twitter (@cc56class) and Instagram (cc56class)

Term 1, Week 3:
What an excellent start of the year we have had in the 5/6 Learning Community. It has been wonderful to see everyone working together! This week we start our studies in other areas of our curriculum. In Literacy we shall be exploring the concept of what it means to be a citizen, and a member of a community. In maths we shall refresh our understanding of place value, and begin to gain a knowledge of integers. Science begins this week with an exploration of microbes and how they can help us in our everyday life. Our homework program commences this week as outlined in the note that went home today (Monday). More information on this can be found in the "Homework Help" page. We would also like to remind you of the Grade 5 and 6 Information Night which will be held on Thursday the 20th of February (the day after the swimming carnival). It would be lovely to see you there and answer any questions you may have. Please remember that if you ever have any questions about your child's education then do not hesitate to contact us.

Term 1, Week 2:

Last week we achieved quite a bit, even though it was only a short week. As a learning community we were able to put together our Vision for the year. This will steer our path of learning as we navigate through the calms and the storms of 2014. In conjunction with this, we also agreed upon a set of behaviours that will assist us to achieve this Vision. The Vision and the statements can be found on the Vision page of our wiki.
This week we commence some of our specific subjects. Today the class will be walking down to the pool in the middle sessions of the day for Sport. Our gardening and cooking sessions for the SAKG will also start this week. A note went home last Friday asking for any volunteers that can help in either of these session.
This week we continue to look at the 7 Habits of Highly Effective people. Some of the work that we have done can be seen on our Instagram pages. These 7 Habits will be an integral part of the way we develop into a learning community. It is hoped that the skills we develop flow into our lives outside of school.

Term 1, Week 1:

Welcome to the new school year! We look forward to working with you and sharing many worthwhile, and exciting, experiences with you. This year we will be using a variety of Social Media tools to foster communication between the school and home. We encourage you to look at the "Digital Communities" page on this wiki for more information.
During the first week and a half we will be working on our Start of Year program. For more information on this please look on the "Start of Year program" page. We will create our Vision statement by investigating what we would like to have achieved by the end of 2014. We will also determine what behaviours we will need to show in order to achieve our Vision. Finally, as a learning community, we will start to get to know each other a little better, and discover how we can all work together to help each other achieve our best.
