Great learning and sharing in Year 5
It has been a great week this week! We have had two very unique opportunities to share our learning across the year level.
Firstly, we had the privilege of listening to an awesome debate. It was run by members of Mr Lockyer’s enrichment group who worked hard to try to persuade us that a specific body system was the most important! We learnt heaps, not only about the big body systems like the skeletal system and the respiratory system, but also about the chemical systems like the endocrine system and the immune system. The debaters used incredibly powerful persuasive language tools to convince us. Congratulations to the chemical body systems people – they were judged the winning team on the day!
The second cool opportunity we had to share our learning was through two awesome APPs, one called Explain Everything and the other called Aurasma. We worked hard on our personal inquiries to research and answer a key question about a specific body system. Then we wrote explanations to answer our questions. We recorded these on Explain Everything and uploaded these to Aurasma. We then used graffiti boards we had made to use as an aura that others could scan with their Aurasma APP to listen to our recordings. We spent some time visiting each Year 5 room to see other people’s graffiti boards and to listen to their explanations. This was a great way to enrich our own learning.
