We have been enjoying Performing Arts because we have assignments and it makes class more fun because we have a goal. The assignment is we have a group and we have to pick an instrumental piece with no lyrics and we have to come up with a story-line, with acting miming or dancing. We can also use props and costumes. With the acting, miming or dancing we are not allowed to speak.
This week in Maths we have been adding and subtracting decimals. We have been doing independent work. I (Jacob) liked Maths because I didn’t know much about this topic (decimals). The year fives learnt how to subtract negative numbers. To do that you just have to flip the top number with the bottom number and then add a negative sign to the answer.
Also, this week, we created beautiful art. The style of art was Folk Art and gave us a chance to expand our minds and think creatively. We got to draw a picture of a landscape and then after drawing it we outlined it with fine liners. Then we coloured it in with pastels, water paints or pencils.
Ryan: This week we did lots of things, We did Folk art what was very relaxing because everyone was quite. Into school sports what was canceled because of the weather and I was really looking forward to it but last time some people weren't playing by the Rules. This week we did independent Maths what was really fun because you could go at your own pace. This week was really fun and interesting.
Will b: This week we did a lot of stuff… my favorite thing was independent maths, I liked a lot because I wasn’t sitting at my desk listening to Ms Scott - I actually got to work 24/7!! This week in Performing Arts we had to pick a song. But the thing is… there is no good ones!! - This week was really fun ✪ I like it a lot and I hope independent maths is a recurring thing!!
Riley.G- This week our class has tried a new learning strategy in maths. what we do is students get a google doc that the teacher shared and it has on what we are going to do that day and we work on it ourselves. I enjoy this new learning strategy because we can learn at our own pace. yesterday the art was great because we did patterns and it looked awesome.Overall this week was amazing.
Natasha- This week we did folk art
for the first time but I didn’t really get it I was walking around the tables and got inspiration by the other art piece and I had a idea after all. First we drew a picture of a place after we went over with fineliner.
Finishing touch to colour it in you can chose pastels,watercolor paints or pencils.
Caoimhe : This week I enjoyed doing the folk art because we got to chose our on landscape and chose what we want to use to colour it in with.
Lachlan: This week i enjoyed doing decimals as well as independent maths because you can do it in your own time without waiting for others to finish it, I also enjoyed the physics data chart because you can write down what you know and also learn new things. We also did art which was around folk art and kind of landscape, and in performing arts we have an assignment where we have to choose a song without words and we have to make up a dance/story with it, I’m with Will P.
Elisa : This week I have enjoyed Performing Arts because it is our second lesson working on our assignment. We got to choose our groups and a piece of music with no words. Our song that we chose was Fire on ice! In my group Alex, Ava, Bridie and I chose a storyline and we have already almost finished! I have really enjoyed this and at the end when we present it to the class we have all decided to wear costumes.
Will H: This week, I enjoyed doing performing arts, because the class got to do an assignment where we had to pick some instrumental music and come up with an act. which was really fun. What’s your favorite music?
Eva: This week I enjoyed working on the physics data chart with our partner, because we got to put photos on. I liked doing performing arts because we had a group mine is daisy, Vivienne and Akuac and got to choose our music and our dance. I liked doing art because we did folk art which is so cool! And an Anzac picture art. We have been learning how to add and subtract decimals.
Will. P: This week we have been doing tons of cool stuff like a very relaxing folk art, decimals, a performing arts assignment where we choose non lyrical music and choreograph a dance or storyline to it, then we had to play dodgeball in the hall instead of winter sports because it was heavily raining! But my favourite thing we did this week was the folk art. Aren’t we lucky!
Alex: This week has been really exciting and hard to choose my favorite thing but I have decided to pick 2 things. My first thing is about was the maths and surprisingly enough maths was one of my favorite thing all week I liked this week’s maths because it was independent and I thought it was fun because we could work at our own past this I feel was very enjoyable. I hope that we do this more and I hope that everyone enjoys this maths. Last week and this week we have been doing an assignment where we choose a group of minimum of 2 people and maximum of 4 people I chose to have 4 people I choose Bridie, Elisa and Ava then we were to chose a piece of music and we chose fire on ice then we chose our story line and we chose 3 princess of all the seasons I am Winter, Bridie it Autumn, Elisa it spring and Ava is summer fighting to be the queen of seasons I looking forward to see what every else has done and presenting.
Ava: This week in Music we have been working on a music assignment where we had to choose a classical music piece with no words and with the acting we had to tell a story. In my group we had 4 people including me and the music that we chose was called fire and ice, the story that we were trying to tell was 4 princes’ that wanted a crown.
Vivienne: This week I have learnt to do subtracting and adding decimal numbers.It’s the same like normal adding and subtracting but with a decimal point and I will give an example.1.098+2.300=3.398
On Thursday everyday we do art and this week we have done folk tale art by using water paint,pastels and pencils.Folk tale art has patterns and colour to be colourful and creative.
Brandon.C - This week in maths we did adding and subtracting decimals and i thought it was really hard but it turned out to be easy. On Friday we were going to do winter sports but it got cancelled because of the rain.
Daisy: I think this week was busy but fun! Winter sport was canceled but we played a really fun game of dodgeball. Mathematics was fun and I learnt about decimals and that decimals and fractions are related. In music, we have to find a piece of instrumental music without lyrics. So far we have had a great start to the term!
Peter :-) This week our class have done lots of exciting things. Something that I particularly enjoyed was performing arts. We were asked to create a performance (in groups) using none of our vocals, only actions and music with no lyrics. I am working with Ryan, Riley and Jack. I can not wait to start rehearsing. I can’t wait to see what next week will bring…!ANGUS: This week I enjoyed writing a book at home and I am excited to finish it. I enjoyed Decimals in maths but I still want to do BODMAS. I really want to know more about how people can remember everything in maths?It is INSANE But I enjoyed the week heaps.
