Yesterday the Grade 5 students participated in a Parliament Process Incursion by Linked Incursions. This fit beautifully with our current Inquiry unit focused on Australia’s democratic process, which involves looking at the roles of different levels of government and how a law is made.
Students participated in interactive role plays to help them understand our preferential voting system, absolute majorities and how laws are passed through the House of Representatives, before moving to the Senate.
Their speaking and listening skills were put to the test as different students took on different roles in Parliament, such as Speaker and Prime Minister.
We had a busy week in Grade 5 last week with Crazy Hair day and the school Disco! Students came to school on Wednesday the 8th of August with their wildest and wackiest hair styles in order to raise money for the Grade 6 Graduation later in the year.
Then Friday night saw the Grades 3 -6’s busting out their best dance moves at the Berwick Chase School Disco.
What can be said except WOW! The show blew students and staff away. It was incredible watching so many young, talented students take to the stage, many of them past students of Berwick Chase!
The singing, dancing and acting of all performers was incredible, as well as the hard work of the lights, sound, and backstage crew. The show went seamlessly and was overall, unbelievably impressive.
We’d all highly recommend going to watch the musical with your family!
