Board Games

This Term, we have been working hard to create maths board games. We created a success criteria as a class.

Success Criteria


We were very excited today to have a chance to play each other’s games. After playing, groups gave the creators a score out of 10 for each of the criteria and gave them some stars and wishes for their game. We were impressed with the creativity of our classmates.




Have you ever heard of Kakuro? Mrs Chegwidden introduced it to us this week. At first we thought it was way too confusing and hard, but once we got the hang of it, most of us loved it! It’s a little bit like Sudoku, except you have to make numbers add up to a total that you are given for each row and column.

Nur’s Volcano

For Genius Hour (that was done at home this term), Nur wanted to answer the question – How are volcanoes formed? Just for a bit of fun, to go with the iMovie that he created to answer the question, he also built a volcano model and made it erupt for us.

Built Environments Multimodal Text

The first of our Multimodal texts have been finished and published on YouTube. We think we’ve done a pretty good job. The purpose of our texts was to inform our audience about the built feature that we have been researching. Our audience was students and maybe even some adults that want to know about the built features of Sydney.

Sydney Harbour Bridge – Brinly, Nur and Soraya

Fort Denison – Giorgio, Zane and Absaar

Sydney Tower – Ethan, Charlie and Jireh

Perspective Drawing

This term we have been learning how to draw pictures that show depth with Miss Harrison. To go with our built environments unit, we created these artworks that show Sydney now and Sydney in the past.

Multimodal Texts

In class, we often read multi modal texts, but we don’t often compose them ourselves. This week in literacy we will be doing just that – composing our own multi modal texts. As part of our Built Environments unit, we have been researching a built feature of Sydney in small groups. Today we are finding the last of the information for our film scripts. Later this week we will be using iMovie to make a documentary about our built feature.
