Welcome to Mrs Ryan’s Class Blog. My name is Rebecca Ryan and I am currently teaching a grade of 5/6 students. This blog provides students the opportunity to access educational resources as well as a place where their work can be showcased.
This blog has grown over many years and provides a vast array of educational games and activities for primary aged students.
Please take the time to explore my blog and please leave a comment.
It’s hard to believe that the year is almost over! It has been such a pleasure teaching this group of 5/6 students. Together we have gone on camp, three excursions, numerous sporting events and lots of learning.
As a comment below write a recount of one of your favourite memories from school this year.
In Term One the 5/6 students and teachers went on camp together. Boy was it hot! I remember on one particular day it was almost unbearably hot. In order to cope in the heat we would pour water down each other’s backs and faces. On camp I really got to know all the year 5 students and I enjoyed spending more time with the year 6 students.
This camp was particularly memorable for me as it was the first camp EVER when my alarm woke me up on the second day and not the students!
In class we have been learning about figurative language, in particular metaphors.
The students have written metaphor poems, please enjoy reading their work in the comments section below.
In English we are exploring poetry in its many forms, from cinquains and octopoems to haikus.
Students have been asked to create a piclit, the poem doesn’t have to rhyme but needs to reflect the image they selected.
In Religion we have been exploring what it means to be Catholic. The students formulated questions to discuss with their family about this topic. Spend sometime discussing these questions and please feel free to leave a comment sharing your thoughts.
Not all questions are easy to answer but the discussion about faith and what it means to be Catholic is the focus.
- Why did you choose a Catholic school?
- How do we know if the quotes in the bible are true?
- What influences a person to become a priest?

- How long does it take to become a Pope or a Priest?

- What about being Catholic stands out for you?
- Are the Bible stories true?
