On Thursday 7 November the primary students participated in Australia’s largest school music participation program, Music: Count Us In. This is a national school music participation program that sees students from all around the country take part, all learning the same song in the lead up to Celebration Day. Students all around the country sing the same song, on the same day, at the same time. It was a great experience to be able to join in with Music: Count Us In again this year.
As a part of the Year 5/6 classroom economy, students took part in a ‘Market Stall’ Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) project. Students planned, promoted, stocked and sold items to Year 4, 5 and 6 students (for ‘Benson Bucks’). Time was provided in class to create promotions for the stalls, with homework time spent as optional extension (with minimal parental assistance). Way to go upper primary students!
