Year 6 has had a very eventful term. From a trip to Canberra, to writing a book in a day, this semester has been full of fun activities.

As Year 6 leaders, we have been so involved in our roles. The House Captains really enjoyed going to and assisting with all of the sporting events this term. The Madrichim have done a wonderful job providing Emanuel School with great ideas in order to make the Emanuel environment achieve its full potential. The Gross Motor and K-2 Play Leaders have had a ball leading the younger students in a variety of fun activities. There are many others who have done an excellent job with their roles, contributing to the School and making the School a better place.

At the start of the term, Year 6 took a trip to Australia’s capital, Canberra. We went to The War Memorial, New Parliament House, Old Parliament House, the National Gallery of Australia, the Arboretum and Embassy Drive. We also were lucky enough to go to Hoyts to watch a movie and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Questacon. We stayed at the Ibis Hotel and our days were jam-packed and full of fun activities. We all had a great time in Canberra.

In Week 8, Year 6 participated in the ‘Write A Book In A Day’ challenge where we wrote books for The Kids Cancer Project. The book had to be between 1500 – 2500 words and we were given a list of characters, settings and words that we had to include in the story. Students were put into groups and had to sort out who were the authors and who were the illustrators as we were staying at school until 8:00 pm in the evening. Everyone was quite excited to finish their books and we worked very hard to do the best we could. In the end, all groups managed to write a book in a day. It was an awesome experience!

Overall, Year 6 has had such a fun term and we hope that the rest of the year will be as enjoyable as the previous semester has been. As this semester is coming to an end, we are so excited to begin a new term and we are all looking forward to starting Project Heritage.
