Today we went around the school to take photos of our favourite place in prep and favourite place in grade 6.
For my letter to Soverighn Hill my parents occupations are my mother is a Stay home mum and my father is a cart maker.
For the past 2 weeks I've been creating things and writing things about Banjo Paterson. Notion of Aussie battler; working hard for everything you get; importance of hard work;.
My goal for reading this picture story book is to show the pictures more and turn up the volume.
gYesterday we had to find a poem to share with the class. I found a really good website that has lots of funny and normal poems. My poem was I'm lonely, so lonely:
I’m lonely, so lonely
I’m always alone.
I never get emails
or calls on my phone.
I sit by myself
in my room every day,
and wonder why nobody
wants to go play.
My classmates avoid me.
They never say, “hi.”
They don’t seem to know
I’m a wonderful guy.
And even the strangers
I see on the street
go out of their way
to make sure we don’t meet.
They jump and they run
to get out of my path.
I guess maybe this year
I’ll take my first bath.
Yesterday we had a guest speaker come in and tell us about sustainable living. In my group we found out that near Melton they are building a town called Toolern which will run on sustainable water choices and reusable water. The way you know if there's recycled water is there will be purple pipes and taps.
Something that I learnt from another group is that there's a large amount of plastic and rubbishy in the ocean which is as big as Texas. One thing I'm going to differently from now on is to try to stop using plastic bottles.
This week we have had a lot of things to do like practising the performance and the fun run and tug of war. Also a lot of learning like what sort of triangles there are and what a gourd is and finishing my picture story book.
Now to the fun run and the tug of war, during the 45 minutes of the fun run I managed to get in 14 laps Darby got 34 as if I could get that many laps. It was really fun and I'm pretty sure we beat Mr Andrea's grade 5B. Now about the performance we sung tiatanium wich was really fun we performed in assembly and I had butterflies in my stomach(I thought I would puke).
Coach approach Le cross
This week and last week have been some big weeks because we've had so much to do. For example we had coach approach, orienteering, kinder visits. My most favourite was kinder visits because we got to see if there was a perfect match for our buddies next year in grade 6. But lucky for me I found a perfect match whitch I'm just waiting for a second buddie so I have 2. The one I have at the moment is Jack whitch I'm lucky he's coming to our school.
This week I've tried my very best to finish my explanation for my science investigation and I think I'm a third and a half done, and I will really try my best to finish it at home. My science progect is about gears and I had chosen robotics but Deegan was doing it then I, decided to do refraction but I couldn't find any information about it then I decided to settle on the idea of researching gears.😀🙂
For the past two weeks our class have been working on oral presentations about people who lived around the 1800s. The character that I have chosen is Edmund Barton who lived from the 1840s to the 1920s but he was famous in 1900 because he was the first Prime Minister of Australia.
It's my last night in Australia for a while and I've got my bag packed and I'm ready to go. Also I heard that on the cruise if you get sick and other people can catch it you have to stay in your room.
