Welcome back to another huge semester of targeted curriculum initiatives at Thornlands State School. Our first week back saw all of our classes embarking on lots of rich learning experiences but it also saw the continued implementation of our whole school writing program ‘Big Write’
So far this semester, teachers have already commented that they were impressed with their student’s abilities when discussing their writing ideas and that students were excited to start ‘fresh’ Big Writes in Semester 2 2020! Look out for your students updated goals soon!
Our Year 5 students have been engaging in robotics and computational thinking using our new Lego ‘WeDo 2.0’ robotics kits. Mrs Cross and Mrs Banks were impressed with their student’s ability to engage in new ways of thinking as well as their willingness to maintain focus in order to meet the objectives of their tasks.
(Year 5 students Noah, Cameron and Levi)
Thank you for registering your children for ICAS testing this year. Registration is now closed.
This year, ICAS has been modified to target students' higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills in English (Reading) and Mathematics.
