The other day we did a recount writing on our holidays. This was my recount On the last day of the first week of holidays. me and my mum traveled on bus and train to the Melbourne museum. This was a surprise to my cousins because their Mum (my aunty)  did not tell where we were going but they did know that we were meeting up. We were secretly going to meet them on the second last box of the train and went to the museum. And had lots of fun.

This week we were doing smash maths on our chromebooks and we played maths games and then we watch a video about the first people in Australia  then when the class finished watching it, Ms Scott shared a slide with us  it had some activities for us to do and we had to do a word search I thought it was fun and the activities were about aboriginals. The videos were in good, they gave me lots of information. Then the next day in class we got shared another tab from Ms Scott it was practicing our times table I got up to the 9x tables it was hard but fun, other people found it difficult.
This week we learnt about Naidoc week. We did a lot of activities. I did the aboriginal art. It took us a long time to finish. Every term 3 we have something special sport thing. This term 3 we do dance fever on wednesday. So to warm up we did yoga only.
On thursday we did a multiplication trainer. We got to choose how much time we get to finish in. The time we can choose are 10 minutes 8 minutes 5 minutes 1 minute or 10 seconds. I chose the tens and nines times table. This week is term 3 week 1 so I am getting use to school again.
This week we learnt about NAIDOC week. We had a lot of activities to do and I did the multiplication trainer it's all about times tables. I did the tens times tables and I nearly got all of them right.We also did smash maths on multiplication. I played three games. We also did dance fever and we did the mexican wave.
This week we learnt about Aboriginals. Also the grad fours got their pen licence. And we went on smash maths on our chromebooks for maths we did art on old trees in a desert. Ms scott tort as lots in the first week of term three. Some people are going on ABC ME.

During this week I learnt about NAIDOC Week. It’s about aboriginal people (it is really fun). So the class had 9 options.Some of them were...
  • Start your own hall of fame featuring aboriginal role models
  • Listen to aboriginal musicians or watch an interview with Traditional elders on ABC Splash
  • Make your own Aboriginal trivia quiz
Well I chose Make your own Aboriginal trivia quiz it was amazing
This week middle s has been doing our writing of what we did on our holidays and l did 4 pages and it was fun and out of all the middles of grade fours nearly all of them have got their pen license. Also we have been doing a NAIDOC activity and l have done a word search and what did the Aboriginals and I have done it all on my own that was really fun, and we have done a activity with Simon and James, from Dance Fever and that was really fun to what we did is we had to stretch and we did a giraffe and so we had to eat some pretend leaves and we had to go on to our tippy toes and with your hands and scrunch up the and pretend to go to the ground when we dropped and we also did smash maths and it was multiplication and division l played 2048 and that was fun to and that was the week and of what i did and that was a fun week end.

On the holidays I went to the gold coast and byron bay it was really fun the place that I stayed at had a 16 metre pool and in the front yard there was cows and bulls and we walked around byron bay a lot and we saw people with no shoes on so my mum made these things called barefoot sandals she crochet them. Then when we came home we had about 2 other weeks then we went back to school. The first week of school the year fours got their pen licence and today I’m getting filmed by ABC ME I am sooooo nervous. We now have dance fever come every Wednesday. Dance fever are two guys that are teaching us all different types of dances last Wednesday we learnt yoga. They played really weird music in the background but it was still fun. And that’s all from me!

This term was very exciting. My favourite thing was when we went to Healesville Sanctuary for inquiry. Because it is the last day of school we are having a class party, but a pack of doritos popped so we had to put those in the bin. A couple weeks ago we had our science fair it was really fun, my experiment `was putting 2 plants in two cups of water one cup with tap water and the other cup with salt water and  we waited for 72 hours and seeing what the difference is.  Recently we did a mystery skype and we figured out it was Killara Primary School. It was very fun and they won because they guessed what our school was our school first,it was very educating especially because is was our first time but Killara primary school they have done a mystery skype before so it was not to hard for them to guess. .So what I am saying is that this has been the best term ever for me!
This term has been an amazing term with so many fun activities.
We learnt so much and done awesome things like going to Healesville Sanctuary and our biology science fair. Our inquiry unit is biology. We are able to classify animals and how we can protect them.
This term we have been taught how we can help keep our world clean #war on waste.
Overall this term it has been so amazing because of all the fun activities and our amazing teacher Ms.Scott.      
The end of term we are having a class party and everyone brought some food for the party we are also having a clean up we are cleaning our tubs and chair bags my chair bag and tub. This year I learnt about taking a one from the other number. The  best for me to research is the books because when I turn the page and I want to look what it eats one of the pages say what it eats so I find books much more easy than the internet.I also learnt when we went to healesville I learnt that a Dingo is meant to be called a Tingo. Art  is my favorite activity for school because  I feel creative when I make new things. I learnt from our science fair because my experiment was a leaf breathing oxygen I learnt from that because I didn't know about that a leaf can breath air and first of all I felt a bit shy to read but then I didn't feel shy when it started but it didn't really work probably because it needed sunlight and really warm water so I said that to the people who came to me. This year I also made a couple of new friends. Next term we are going to learn about history so we are going to read about Australian girls books  I started reading about them some parts are sad because I'm reading Letty the Australian girls and her mum died and I found that sad.  I can't wait for next term to learn about Australian history.    
This term was the best term.The best thing is when we went to Healesville Sanctuary. it was really fun  when we learnt a lot. What helped me to learn is  history (books), chromebooks to help me search, going to excursions, P.T.L , sharing my learning with other people and being social. .I discovered about plants, animals, dolphins, how to regrow carrot tops. I am wondering more about history, more about plants. I enjoyed term 2 and I can’t wait until term 3.  
This term I learned more about division and times tables. I discovered  about biology. We learned about life cycles and how plants grow - plants grow by the sun,air and water. I liked Healesville Sanctuary and seeing the kangaroos and seeing all the other animals and also seeing the bird show. Research helped me learn, books, teachers and videos.
Today is the last day of the term I can't wait till the day finishes, I think this term was a very fun and interesting because we want to Healesville Sanctuary and that was so fun when we sou all the animals. How I learnt this term was using computers and a dictionary and other kids helped too, I also did a P.L.T with Patrick. I did not do a lot but I helped with a site that helped with one question.
Today is the last day of term 2 and it has been a very good term. We have learned a lot about inferring in literacy. Our main topic of this term is biology. In writing we have learnt about place reports, animal reports and reflection. What helped me learn this term is doing teachers and independent learning and researching helped me learn. I had discovered this term a way in division which where instead of just putting remainder 1 adding decimal point 0 put the remainder up to make it a ten. This term I have learnt a lot about a lot of things. We have done a lot this year including a science fair, going to Healesville and first aid course. This term has been a really fun term and I can’t wait to next term!

This term has been amazing because I learnt all about biology and experiments. Ms Scott was amazing and helped everyone through it. And to show what we learnt this term. We found a math game called super maths world.

Today is the last day of term 2 and I have learnt more than i ever have.My class is nice and we all should learn more.We all have half a day and we leave at snack time.Today we also have a class party it is only for sugar free and i brought hummus,carrot,cucumber and celery. We played a game called super maths world.This term we are learning about biological science.Overall this term has been amazing because miss Scott has made all of the fun activities to learn and to play.I made a science experiment for my homework and it was feeding plants different drinks
In Term 2 we did our Science Fair. It was amazing when I discovered others experiment. I
learned about my experiment that no one  liked it because mine was about spiders. I still wonder about doing more science experiment and do more grade 5 maths. Also we did a st john first aid training and we learned help people when they get hurt.
Today is the last day of term 2. This term our topic for Inquiry was Biological Science. We played a maths game called super maths world which is a 3d game about maths. This term we also went for an excursion to Healesville Sanctuary to learn about animals especially endangered animals. About 3 weeks ago we had a first aid course with one of the girls from St.John's. This term the Middles had a biology Science fair, lots of parents came and all the classes came. Something I learnt was that when someone has fainted or passed out you don’t test their pulse because you would feel your pulse instead of theirs because yours is stronger.

In conclusion this term was probably the best term I ever had.
Today it is the last day of term 2. So this term we were learning  about biological science . We also went to Healesville Sanctuary it was really  fun ! There was a lot animals. I saw a kangaroo and Tasmanian devil and other animals. After that Ms Scott told us to do a life cycle with a partner that you never work with. Well I chose Oscar and it was really fun. When I showed it to the class. I was really nervous. 2 days ago  we played super math world - it was really fun or in this cast super fun. I’m really going to miss the term it was a great term.
Term 2 has been fun learning about biological science for inquiry, and the science  fair.  In week 4 or 5 we went to Healesville Sanctuary  and we saw lots of animals and it was fun going to Healesville Sanctuary. I learnt more about Tawny frogmouths. I discovered that potatoes shrivel up when it is salty of outside of the potato! We did lots of fun stuff this term,
I learnt from books the internet and other students for the Tawny frogmouth.
Ms Scott introduced  very fun games to us like super maths world and Shaun the sheep, for maths and the art that we did this term was about animals it  was really fun.
What did I learn?  Healesville sanctuary because we saw lots and lots of animals like birds, kangaroos and reptiles mammals and more. We also had a biology science fair.What did I discover? Sun loving plants die in the shade. What I wonder still? Plants and history.
Today is the last term  and we did our experiment and a lot of people came to me and middle s and middle m went to Healesville Sanctuary, and I saw a lot of animals and my favorite animal was the wedge tailed eagle the wedge tailed eagle is huge and big. Like I said before we did our experiment and mine was green bok choy that you can eat a lot of people came to mine. and today we are having a class PARTY! and downing P.E lessons and like I said before this is the last day of school.
Today is the end of term 2! It was  good term for the class and for me because everyone worked together as a class or on their own. It was a good term because it was a challenging term for everyone and everyone learnt something knew this term I’ll say. There were a lot of challenges throughout the term but we went through the wall and did all the challenges and I say the school holiday break was well deserved and it will make us think about next term and challenges for next term. We all had fun during the term and everyone was helping and teaching everyone to be nice, friendly and learn new stuff.
Starting off with the term, we went to Healesville Sanctuary for our inquiry and we learnt a lot from the zoo. We saw a lot of animals and some endangered animals and seeing what they do to save the population of the animals. The excursion was great with learning a lot of things there and it was a good experience. All of it was great. After, we did the first aid training from St John’s. It was good to learn what to do when a person is hurt or injured.
After that, we did a science experiment about biology. I did a project on The Changing Color Celery experiment and it was cool to see the difference between normal celery and putting it into food dye. What I found out is that the red food dye for the experiment was stronger from the yellow food dye because it's a lighter colour but the experiment was cool. After the experiment we all presented it in an expo and we all had fun presenting to the school and parents. It was nice to see the parents come and see all the kids do the presentations.
This term we were learning biology for inquiry. I learnt that living things look really different and bugs need our blood to live. So in week 5 we went on a 1 hour trip to Healesville Sanctuary.
I discovered apples turn brown because there are cells that the apples have. For homework the middles needed to do an experiment. I did how can we stop an apple from turning brown. I tried to use air water lemon juice and oil. And the lemon juice was the best to keep the apple from turning brown. I am wondering how does air get in our lungs. The things that helped me in term 2 was the internet and books.
This term I did genetics it was very challenging. It was hard to explain but I completed it. We went to Healesville Sanctuary. We learned lots of things.  We saw new animals.
HI today it’s the end of term 2 at school. This term was awesome because my bestfriend got back from his holiday. I also got challenged with new learning tasks I did some really cool presentations. We also did the science fair on biology this terms focus was biology.We also got to draw animals and plants we also went to Healesville Sanctuary and learnt that there are only 15 wild orange bellied parrots left. Today we're having a class party because it’s the last day of the term. We found out about a new maths site called super maths world and it’s really fun to play. We also did the St Johns first aid course.
At school Ms Scott shared a maths game with everyone in middles. I thought it was a fun game so did my friends This term i made a new friend, Miles, and this term the middles did a science fair and I got 35 customers and I thought it was fun because I like doing experiments and showing them. The ingredients for the experiment were a knife, 1 apple, and cut it into 3 slices then get lemon juice and put the three slices in the three bowls. Then you need to put lemon juice in until  the apple it gets above it then get water then put it into the 2 bowl until it gets above it then the 3 bowl you just leave it there by itself and I guessed which one will go brown first -  i thought it was bowl number 3 because it had nothing to protect it  the one that will stay happy will be bowl 1 with lemon juice because it has it has things in the juice to protect it.
In term two Middle.s had a very good term. In week eight the middles went to Healesville Sanctuary! It was really cool seeing all the animals I liked the platypus the most because I think they're interesting. In week ten the middles had a expo on biology science experiments. I thought the experiments were really cool because they were on biology science experiments.
I think term two was a really good term  
This term was very exciting and I learnt a heap. First we went to Healesville Sanctuary and got to know a lot more about animals! Now we are having our last day of our term. Now I think next term it’ll be very interesting because I love history.
Things we've done this term:
  • We did plants or animals experiment
  • We had st.Johns first aid
  • We learnt the binary code
  • We found out next term we will study “Australian History”
  • We did life cycle PLT’s with a partner
I have a feeling next term will be great!
Middle.s went to Healesville sanctuary and we had lots of fun there. And also its nearly my birthday. We had lots of lessons. And also we are having a class party the best party ever. I learnt lots of new stuff this year we had a science fair and my project was on bunnies. I learnt that it took a long time for the baby bunny to open its eyes.
Today is the last day of term 2, The start of the second semester(not really)!  This term has been awesome because we learnt about biology for inquiry, and biology is one of my favourite things to learn about. Because this term both classes learnt about biology both of the middle classes went to Healesville Sanctuary and we all learnt a lot about the native animals and plants.
These are also some things we did and learnt about this term.
  • Biological experiments
  • Animal and plant art
  • Healesville Sanctuary
  • Life cycle PLT’s
For maths we did a lot of fun stuff like on a slide show,  in partners we made a shop and sold stuff to other people. We also did a first aid course with the St John people as well. And to top it all of to keep our earth clean our middle class is #waronwaste!
This term I really enjoyed the excursion to Healesville Sanctuary. It really helped my learning for animals, (especially Pygmy possum\s). I didn’t know that us leaving our lights on when we’re not there can affect animals.
Another thing I enjoyed this term was the science fair. I really liked sharing about my biology experiment on flowers. I also enjoyed looking at other projects that they have worked on at home.
Another fun thing this term was doing the first aid course. We met Natalie from St. John's and she thought/revised the DRS ABCD code. We also learnt the recovery position.
I’ve really enjoyed this term. Thanks Ms. Scott.
