We are in the process of consolidating all the data we have collected from our interviews with members of the school community. We gathered a range of perspectives on our chosen issues and deepened our understanding of why certain behaviours occur and the connection those behaviours have with beliefs and values.
In language, we are editing and proofreading our stories for publishing. Some are in the process of writing their other stories.
In maths we are wrapping up our learning about probability by consolidating our understanding of the vocabulary and the strategies we use to calculate probability.
We had our Global Play Day where the students demonstrated creativity, independence, organization and problem-solving skills. The event was a success and it’s a great opportunity for the students to enjoy play with their peers. See some reflections and quotes from students below:
- “I’m going to be a risk-taker and play a new game called baseball because we ALWAYS play soccer!”
- “I learned how to be a better problem solver because our fort kept falling down and we had to make a plan.”
- “I developed my social skills and self management skills because I organised all the stuff I was going to bring the day before.”
- “The best moment was when the F.B.I came and put Ms. Faber in jail!!”
- “I developed being a risk-taker because I had to try new things and make speeches for Fort Land.”
How you can help at home:
- Ensure that your child has time for Mathletics practice
- Ask your child to explain what they’ve learned about probability

Hello and a warm welcome to 5.3!
My name is Perico Pineda, and I will be teaching 5.3 this year. This is my second year at LIS and prior to this placement I taught in different IB schools in Indonesia, Philippines, and Iraq.
We’re incredibly lucky to welcome Ms. Charity as our Year 5 teaching assistant. It’s her 6th year in LIS. She has moved from the music department to support our learning, sad for Ms. Betsy, but great for us!
This year we will use our blog [http://blogs.lisluanda.com/5point3/] as a main source of communication with families so please be sure to sign up to receive updates as and when items are posted. We are also excited to collaborate with you all this year. If you have any areas of expertise and could come into class to share anything at all please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher [email@example.com].
Our first unit will be under the trans disciplinary theme of How We Express Ourselves, further details will follow in a future post.
Below you will find your child’s schedule for the year. Please be sure to support them in being independent and prepared for school. Please note, due to sharing of the school areas with MYP students, Year 5 will not be having swimming just yet, instead they will have PE lessons and swimming will be blocked for all PE lessons from weeks 18-22, and 29-30. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
We are so looking forward to getting to know you all this year and beginning our learning journey.
The year 5 team
