Gr 6 Leadership Camp to Mungo

On Tuesday the 7th May, Ryleigh, Zoe, Zarneesha, Sophie, Beau, Noah, Prince and Isaiah went to Mungo National Park as part of a leadership group, to learn the history of our indigenous culture. The 4 days involved lots of team building activities, battling wild weather conditions and  proved to be an adventurous 4 days. Our favourite experiences were finding bones, making spears, walking around the Walls of China, playing in the sand dunes and stargazing. We were lucky enough to come away from this amazing experience with a greater knowledge and appreciation of our first people. We will be presenting our learning at assembly next Friday.

Grade 6 - Unit of Inquiry - The Dig

The Dig - Grade 6 Unit of Inquiry

This term Grade 6 students have turned into mini archaeologists. Our Central Idea is ‘Investigating the past helps us understand the present and informs the future.’

We are really loving doing this U.O.I (Unit of Inquiry) because it’s something we look forward to each week and other schools don’t get to do it.

There are 3 archaeological roles: Recorder - who draws where we find the artefacts and describes what they are. Siever - who takes the bucket of dirt to the sieve and tips it in to find anything that has been missed by the excavator. Finally, the Excavator - who does the digging and finds the artefacts, brushes away the dirt and tells the recorder the exact measurement to place it on the sheet. Some of the artefacts we have found are - bones, glass bottles, toys, accessories, and some old paints. We then research what we find and put it on a timeline. We can’t wait to see what else we find, and how old they are and who used them.
