Akuac- this week I liked the ANZAC Day ceremony. It was a warm day and I knew the story about the war.
Jacob - this week we learnt how to divide and multiply fractions
Natasha- I enjoyed ANZAC Day because I loved seeing the wreaths and statues. We got the Australian flag because we were celebrating the Australian and New Zealand soldiers. I learnt how they fight and survived. We heard the last post, trumpet and a story about a nurse.
Will. B - This week was fun because during maths on Tuesday we got to play games (Fractions Games) And the next day (Wednesday) we went to the Box Hill RSL - They have a Ceremony for schools! - And Today we get to do the first game of the inter-school sports - I’m Doing Soccer Rounders!!
Bridie - This week was a busy week as we learnt many new things. In sport we played sideline basketball. In music we have our first assignment. We have to pick a piece of music without words and then create either a dance or a performance to the song. Alex, Elisa, Ava and I decided to do a dance and our theme is princesses fighting over who gets to be queen. This is going to be a lot of fun. This week we also went to an Anzac Ceremony at Box Hill with many other schools. We listened to many speeches and prayers about the brave soldiers who fought in WW1. Then we listened to the Ode and the Last Post. Today we have our first round of Winter Inter-school Sports against St Christopher's. We are so excited. In maths this week we have been learning how to add, subtract, divide and multiply fractions. We found out that your times tables helps a lot when you are working with fractions. That is our very busy and exciting week!
Jasmine: I enjoyed Performing Arts this week because we had an assignment to do with Caoimhe, Siena and Natasha choose a piece of music then make up a story to it though we had to be silent. I am looking forward to creating it. I like this because I enjoy listening to music and also using my imagination. In maths we also revised using all the operations of fractions. For example when you divide fractions you turn the second one upside down then you times it and when you add them you make the denominator the same and add them together.
Vivienne- This week I have enjoyed going to the Box Hill RSL because it was talking about over the past about Anzac and World war 1.The war had began in Gallipoli. We also learnt how to do fractions and it wasn’t that hard when we listened and we were multiplying,dividing,subtraction and addition and here are the Senior S way to do dividing fractions. First you have the two fractions and flip over the second fraction.Then multiply it together.
Riley .G- So far this term has been great because everything I have done I understood. This term art is has been great because we get to choose our art more.
Will H: This week, I’m looking forward to doing winter school sport, because we get our own singlets and we get to go to a local park
Caoimhe -This week I enjoyed performing arts because we had an assignment to choose a piece of music with no lyrics and create our own storyline to go with it. We all have partners and mine are Jasmine, Sienna and Natasha.
Sienna- This week has been very busy. We’ve been doing fractions, art, Anzac Day Ceremony at Box Hill RSL, tweeting about the preps chickens, music assignments and finally Winter School Sports with St Christopher's. But one of my favourite things is art. This week in art we did Anzac drawings. What we did was we got an A4 piece of paper and it had a picture of a soldier, poppies, a star and the Union Jack. We got to do whatever we wanted with it so we could use pencils, textas, paint, pastels and chalk pastels. I liked it because we got to colour it how ever we wanted. My other favourite thing is Winter School Sports because I have never done it before and I would like to see what it’s like.
Jack P - This week we did fractions in maths and 4 types of operations ( add, subtract, divide and multiply. We also went to Box Hill RSL on Wednesday to an ANZAC day ceremony. There were 10 - 15 schools there and we listened to very special people there and we listened to them talk about World War I.
Peter: This week in only one lesson of maths, I learnt how to divide fractions, very quickly! Knowing multiplication facts has really helped me learn about fractions. Also, our school was lucky enough to visit the Box Hill RSL for an ANZAC Day reflection ceremony.
Lachlan B - What I enjoyed doing this week was Genius Hour and Sport Because in Genius Hour you can learn about a topic you're curious about and you can present it to the class so they can learn more and I enjoyed sport because I do what I love and I can learn new sports and how to play it.
