5W News

In 5W we have been studying the transdisciplinary theme of 'How We Organise Ourselves'. This has been able to provide the boys with the perfect start into the life of a Year 5 student. We have been looking at how productivity can be enhanced through effective teamwork. We have looked at the structure of organisations, worked together to solve murder mysteries, looked at helping our classmates using Classcraft, worked hard to produce a contraption that carried a tennis ball across the classroom and finally produced a balloon powered car with varying degrees of success. Finally, I feel the need to share with you a few of their reflections on the unit to finish off;

'Teamwork is not a thing that you can just make happen.' - Thomas Byass

'Teamwork is used in many more circumstances than I thought and how to make things efficient and easy to get the task done quickly and smoothly.' - Tom Gray

'I learnt that teamwork is very import and quite good for getting work done' - Harry Smith

The boys are looking forward to our next unit and the possibilities that are waiting for us.
