Reflecting on our learning this week

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.

Elisa - This week I have enjoyed art which was about the Anzacs. Because we got to choose how we coloured in the picture and I used paint and textas.

Eva: This week I liked doing performing arts because we got to choose our group and our music. When we went to the Anzac day at the RSL, I enjoyed what they said and some of the things that they said I didn’t know.

Ryan: This week we were doing art. This week's art was based on the ANZAC Day to remember the people who were fighting for our country.

Will. P: This week we went to the Box Hill RSL for an ANZAC day ceremony. We also spent the week dividing, multiplying, subtracting and adding. We’ve all been very excited for the first match of the Winter Sports today, I’m on the volleystars team. For art Mrs I’s husband drew a picture which we coloured in with lots of different materials.

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.    

Maria- Today I’m very excited for winter sports because we get to play against other schools and we also get to improve our teamwork skills. Today we will be playing against St Christopher’s. I'm playing In the netball A team but we should really name it the year 6 girls netball team.

Alex- This week on Wednesday we went to Anzac day cathedral in Box Hill and listening to all of the people talk about the war and learning about the sacrifices people made for Australia. I was very interested in what people’s point of view on the war. On Thursday we do art and this week our art was on war related art to do with Anzac day I loved this art and I loved seeing what people came up with we were given a sheet of paper that had a soldier on it and the Union Jack on it and poppies you could color, paint, pastel or anything you liked. I enjoyed this art because it was creative and fun.
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.

Jake L - This week I enjoyed Reading because I had to do a particular task about compound words, on Easter. I also liked going on a bus to Box Hill R.S.L  to listen about the people who fought in the war, or knew someone who fought in the war. On Thursday we learnt about fractions and decimals, it was very challenging for me but I think I was able to cope with it.

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.

Ava- This week it was Anzac day so in Art a teacher’s husband at our school drew a picture that he saw on Pinterest and he copied it but he made a few changes and he photocopied it for all the senior students and we coloured it in how ever we liked. I coloured it in with Texta for some parts and other parts with paint.

Daisy- This week has been very busy and fun. We went to the ANZAC day ceremony and did art fun art. I also liked math because we were doing fractions. I learnt to divide fractions,

Brandon.C - We went to the ANZAC ceremony to honor all the lives lost in WW1 and all the other people that fought in war.

ANGUS - I learnt more about Fractions and I finished reading goosebumps “You can’t scare me”. I also celebrated Anzac day with my school. We went to box hill to remember them.

Riley O - we did the four operations for fractions, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. I revised dividing and multiplying fractions - dividing is basically times and you just flip the second fraction then times the fractions.


  1. Dear Senior S,
    We can certainly fit a lot into one week at St Luke's can't we? I like the idea of reflecting on what we do as it makes us consider the things that we like as well as the things that affect us. It is interesting to note that many of you reflected on different things.
    Mrs C

  2. It was great to share your experiences this week by reading your blog posts. Sounds like many if you got a good grasp of fractions this week too! I especially enjoyed viewing your Anzac art pieces. Thank you Deborah

  3. Great post - Well done Senior S
