In Literacy this week, we have been doing a assessment. One of the things that we have to do in the assessment is to create a narrative, using the best vocabulary and descriptive words we can. The other part of the assessment is that we have to make a reciprocal writing piece. The story that I read was called, ‘Marshall Armstrong is new to our School’.
In Maths, seeing that Mr Hynes isn’t here at school at the moment, we have joined up with Mr Hynsen’s group and we are looking a the 3 different types of triangles. The equilateral triangle, the isosceles triangle and the scalene triangle. Now that we have been learning about these 3 triangles, I am a lot better with them now. I also know how to use a protractor which is very handy!
In R.E, we have been learning a bit about Australian History and we are learning about the song, ‘We are Australia’.
In Big Idea, Lexi and I are partners and we are learning about the Aboriginals by creating a 3D poster and tomorrow we are going to paint our Aboriginal artwork. On the poster, we have 2 dreamtime stories, about the dances, what they eat, where they lived and a few more. It has been very fun with this Big Idea topic and seeing we are allowed to go with a partner!
On Friday, 9 of the year 6 students are going to Melbourne to play for the State Championships for a Mixed Team Competition. The 9 people that are going are Emma Q, Emma W, Lexi, Clay, Callum, Laura, Catelyn (Smash), Kate and I! I’m extremely excited and confident that we will do well seeing that we haven’t lost a game in the last competitions.
