  4. 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.

    Read this description of a beach. This is probably what we all think of when a beach is described to us. BUT – what if we change the whole MINDSET about what a beach is.

    The learning intention for this activity is that I want you to think more broadly about common topics. Don’t be satisfied with the ‘normal’ approach. Think ‘outside the square’.

    After reading this description you will need to check out a Keynote in the Grade 6R server.

    View the Keynote.

    Write a description of a beach that is OPPOSITE to our Hawaiin beach.

    (Write this in your Writing Book.)

  10. Timetables

    July 25, 2017 by Mr Richo

    You are all moving on to Secondary College soon and many of you will need to travel on trains, trams and buses. Complete the  following activity in your grid book.

    Your TIME challenge is as follows:


    A person living near Apollo Parkways PS wants to go to the movies in the city. To get there they need to catch public transport to the city and then return home the same way.

    You need to research (using movie and public transport timetables) the following:

    1. Where do they catch the public transport from?

    2. What time will they catch the public transport?

    3. What time will they arrive in the city?

    4. Where will they exit the public transport?

    5. What movie will they be seeing and where will they see it?

    6. What time does the film start?

    7. What time (approximately) does the film finish?

    8. Where from and what time will they leave the city on public transport?

    9. Where and what time will they arrive home?

    To complete this task you will need to create an itinerary for the trip. Your itinerary should include times, locations and the plan for the day’s events. You need to take into account the time it would take to move from one place to another (eg: from the public transport to the movie theatre).

    You can use your iPad to do your research and you can complete you itinerary either in your Maths book or on your Pages app.

    Good luck!
