Last week for homework I was supposed to write a weekly reflection and send it. Well I forgot to send it so I ‘m doing it now. So just pretend it’s this time last week.
Well in maths we have been focusing on Cartesian planes which are a type of graph. I thought I did pretty well. I learnt heaps but there still is a few things I don’t know a bout Cartesian planes. In literacy we started an assessment. You have to write a plan of your narrative and then a good copy, do a reciprocal reading piece, the lap test and finally a story graph. I’m on task right now except I don’t think I will get the good copy of the narrative done. In big idea i’m with my friend Elly and the whole of 5/6’s focus is Australian history. We decided to do 3 tasks and they were a timeline, prezi and 5 medals. Where’re on task and we hope to get everything completed. Well that’s been my week. Please leave a comment!
When you wake up to the morning routine
You know its another normal day in life
As I slip out of bed
I already hear the fights
All over apricot yougurt
I chuck my lunch
In my bag
Then, bye mum
See ya dad
Well all of that happened
6 months ago
Now all I can hear is the sound of
Guns, bombs, planes, screams
“Get on the boat” dad yells
It is rusty, small and
sways from side to side
There is only two words that fill my mind
At this point in time and they are
Home or away
and I sure know
would prefer to be right now
In maths we have all made our own workshops to present to the class. I did a workshop on percentages with 2 friends. Our focus was learning how to work out percentages in an efficient way. We had no idea at the start but now we have a really good understanding. Percentages are now fun and easier to work out!
For the R.E homework task I chose my Dad, the gifts and fruits of the holy spirit that she shows are…
The gifts are..
Courage: Dad shows courage by doing things that he might not have done before. (e.g. being goal umpire at my brothers footy)
Knowledge: Dad shows knowledge by helping me with homework because she is always giving me ideas when I am stuck.
Understanding: Dad shows understanding by listen to me when I’m upset or stuck and will help me get thought it
The fruits are…
Joy: Dad shows joy all the time because he is always cracking jokes that he thinks are funny when there not and being sarcastic around her friends and family
Modesty: Dad shows modesty because she never brags about his success even if he does very well.
Generosity:Dad shows generosity because he lets me use his laptop for homework and looks after me when I’m sick even if he’s busy.
Kindness: Dad shows kindness because he will take me around to the park and help me practise my sport.
This is a weekly reflection on what I thought I did well and what I could have done better.
Monday- Monday was just a typical school day, in Literacy we had to get into a group of 4 and create and advertisement about a product and do a live performance at the end of the week, I was in a group with Ella,Milly and Tamika and we were advertising shampoo. In the afternoon all of the year 6′s went to the church to have a practice for confirmation which is on Sunday but we all had to catch a bus because it was raining and freezing.
Tuesday- On Tuesday we practiced our advertisement and we all brought in a prop, and I had to bring in the bad shampoo. We had maths and we are learning how to add and subtract 3 fraction sums and at first I was so confused but now it is so easy I think that I could do it in my sleep.
Wednesday- Today all of the year 6′s went to church for the whole day to have a reflection day and first we sat down and listened to the bishop talk us about what confirmation means and other things like that, then we learnt were we where going to sit on the day and when to walk up then we did a full run thought.Then we had our snack and had a little play outside. After snack we came back into the church for a little bit of a reflection time and previously our parents wrote us a note about what the are proud of and how much they love us and we had to read them some of my friends got emotional but I didn’t.
Thursday- We had specialist day which is were we don’t have any of our regular teachers or subjects we had Indonesian, Art, Sport, schoolebraty Appreciate, and drama but most of my friends weren’t there because they went to a netball round robin and they came back winners and got though to the next round.
Friday- We presented our advertisement’s and it was very interesting to see everybody’s acts doing so well and when it came around to our turn surprisingly we did really well even though someone forgot to bring there prop. At the end of the day i was excited for the weekend we are celebrating my dads 40th and my confirmation.
This week for homework we did some activities and one of them was the footprint challenge where you take a quiz to see if everyone lived like me how many worlds we would need. Well if everyone lived like me we would need three worlds. Now I would like to change it down to 2 or possibly 1 world so maybe if I reduced the animal products that I currently eat by half, brought things with less packaging and brought things that are 100% recycled (paper) maybe that would help. What do you think? Well maybe you could take the challenge and tell me how you went and what you could change.
Wherever I am
My mind runs wild
Its a whole different place
I do what I want
When I want
Its where magic happens
And this is all
After the sun sets
Children go to bed
Animals come out
Strange noises appear
The bright moon shines
In different shapes
After the sun sets
When the laughter stopped
Well that was a long time ago
Tears were everywhere
People were burnt
Everything was destroyed
No place to live
For a long time
When the laughter stopped
Hi everyone i’m back again this week is a bit more interesting and fun for me and the rest of the grade 6’s but on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the grades 5’s weren’t having so much fun as they were doing naplan. While they were doing naplan the grade 6’s were with there buddies helping them write books, I think they had a good time. When we got back we started doing conformation stuff and that took us to reccess which ment naplan was finshed for the day. After recess we watched a movie you could choose out of dolphin tale or life of pi, I watched dolphin tale. We had to write a movie review about 6 main events in the movie as an activitie. Well the movie was really good and really long it went for something like 2 hours and 15 minutes. At home nothing interesting is really happining on Saturday mum had a working bee for the school and dad went to my brothers football in Leopold and on Sunday we had a conformation mass and after that my nana and popa came down from melboune for lunch and to give me a dress for my friends party. My brother had his friend over and thats basically my whole week so if you want to find out more come to my blog next week and read another post again. By the way if you want please leave a comment and tell me about your week. Bye 🙂

I had soccer training for zones and even thought were training we still don’t know when or where it is.This weekend is more exiting then last I’ve got my friends party and mothers day is on I got my mum a cookbook from the mothers day stall and my dad brought us to give to her this really nice red bowl and an egg holder plate, I made her a card with flowers on it to go with it. The 5/6’s had a maths assessment and in literacy had to write a narrative well since I’m on the buddy committee I was at art helping the preps.Well I think that’s all about my week. It wasn’t that interesting but I had some stuff to write about so if you want to read more come next week and I have more to tell you! bye 🙂
