  1. Lightning Writing

    February 27, 2018 by Mr Richo

    Use this image as your inspiration!

    What does it make you feel? Scared? Excited? Curious?

    Do you have a key? Maybe it needs something more powerful than just a key.

    Did you find the door somewhere forbidden or is it a door you see every day?

    Are you on the right side of the door or have you gone to a place you cannot return from?

    Are you alone, surrounded by others or searching for someone/something?

    Are there consequences for your actions?

    Be as creative as you can and let your brain wander through the possibilities! Use figurative language to bring your writing to life!

  2. Inquiry – Literacy Rates

    February 27, 2018 by Mr Richo

    Use your Inquiry book.


    1. What does Literacy rate mean?
    2. Name 10 countries that have over 99 percent.
    3. Why do you think these countries have such a high percentage.
    4. What is the definition of a good education system?
    5. Name 6 countries with under 50 percent Literacy Rate.
    6. Why do some countries have such a low rate.

    Write the answers into your inquiry book. Set them out in a creative way.  (e.g. – bubbles, boxes, any other?)


    Give some reasons.

  7. Lightning Writing

    February 4, 2018 by Mr Richo


    Lightning writing!


    In Grade 6 you will complete Lightning Writing tasks on a regular basis. Lightning writing is completed over a shorter time than usual. Try to write freely without worrying about ‘spot on’ spelling yet. You can sort that out later. You have to keep a flow going – it may not all make perfect sense but that is what editing is for.

    There are a number of Prompts below. Choose one that you want to write about.

    This work is to be completed in your WRITING book.

     When you have finished do some editing. Use your red pen. Write tricky words in the margin.

  8. Welcome – Class of 2018

    February 4, 2018 by Mr Richo

    This is your last year of primary school but you will have a lot to look forward to this year.


    The camp is in week 6 so it is not far away. There are many leadership opportunities and we meet our buddies on the second Monday back.

    The family fun night disco will be held on February 23.

    Make it the best year ever!

    All the best.

    Mr. Gary Richardson
