How does the Census help us?


Today in class we had a look at the website Spotlight, which is created by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to inform people about information collected in the Census and how it is important.

It provided us with information about the population of our area, the number of Australians with the same age as us and our ancestry. At the end, it produced a neat infographic like the one below which each of us printed.

You might like to log on to the website at home and how you compare to the rest of Australia. If you find an interesting fact, we would love for you to share it with us!


Homework – Weeks 3 and 4, Term 3

Wow, week three already!


Here is our homework for Weeks 3 and 4 of Term 3. All of our tasks relate to the learning we have been doing, or will be doing, in class, especially our work on average, operations and measurement in Maths, grammar and vocab in English and our class novel for integrated.

This homework is due back on Friday, 12 August. Our organisation tip is to ensure you’re in the right frame of mind before
beginning homework. No point if you are really tired or exhausted. Have a snack, something to drink or a ten minute break if needed before starting.

When you finish your homework, why not score yourself on our marking rubric – it should be the same score I give you!

Some websites that might help you to complete tasks this week include:
