Top 5 Things That Excited Y5-6 Students

Written by: Rob Watson, ECE & Primary Vice Principal

The school year is now well and truly underway, and the students have settled well into their new classrooms. One of the main sources of excitement at the beginning of the year for the Year 5 and 6 students were the new learning communities. It was great watching their faces light up when they entered the classrooms for the first time on the orientation day.

This made us wonder what else Year 5 and 6 students were really excited about, so we decided to survey them and have created the Top 5. Whilst we were not surprised at some of the results (lunch was high on the excitement list!), there were some answers which we hadn’t anticipated. Take a look at the list below, and see if you would agree!

  • Meeting their new teachers
  • Collaborating in a Mathematics project-based unit
  • Enjoying lunch
  • Taking part in new lessons, such as drama
  • Using their new lockers!
