Senior Report, Weeks 7-9
We have been making Easter bonnets in class getting ready for the Easter Parade on Thursday morning. I got a big box and put it on my head since I’m so good at making hats. Some other people made hats with giant rabbits on them. It’s going to be a fun parade (also look out for the guy with the big box because that’s me.)
Now for a joke.
Q: Why am I so bad at jokes?
A: I don’t know. I really need help with jokes. THE END.
On Harmony Day we all wore orange to celebrate harmony. There was bows, sunglasses, T shirts, hats and lots more everywhere that were all coloured orange. We all celebrated being together and all our differences. In the end we all got a photo of all of us making the words "Harmony Day!" by standing together. We all had fun working together in groups with from all grades and year levels doing fun activities.
During the past two weeks in Sport we have completed Jump Rope For Heart. The Year 6s ran all of the activities for the whole school. It was a hot day but we got through it and it was all worth it to raise the money for people with heart problems. My heart was definitely pumping! In sport last week we also had our last interschool sport friendly against S.J.V. It was a great day and we all had great results and sportsmanship. That’s all from sport news these two weeks!
On Tuesday we had Green Hats come in for a Planks Incursion. It was AMAZING! Everyone had something amazing to build. Cam told us why he wanted to do what he is doing now. We learnt about friction, how to stabilise a structure and how to make it strong. We did a warm up together to get our brain started before we all started to build ourselves. Overall, my group's tower was amazing and smashing it was legendary. Other designs were towers, beds, baths and even cities.
Riddle: You have a chicken, a fox and a bag of seed that you need to take one across the river one at a time. How do you do it?
Hint: fox eat chicken, chicken eat seed.
Answer: chicken first, then seed, quickly take the chicken back, then take the fox, then chicken.

HELLO! This is Anna! Today I’m writing about two things – Writing AND Reading!
In Writing we have been finishing off and editing our narratives that we have been working on this term. It was REALLY fun writing narratives using all the different things we learnt in class. We loved listening to each other's different stories with interesting characters and sizzling start, but now it has come to an end.
In Reading we have been learning to make informed predictions about the texts we have been reading. We have enjoyed getting to read lots of different books in our Reading groups such as Gizmo by Paul Jennings and The Nimbin by Jenny Wagner. BYE BYE! Until next term!
In Maths we finished our fractions, decimals and percentages unit. We all learnt a lot of different interesting things in our groups. In my group we learnt how to convert fractions into decimals and percentages. We also learnt how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions of all different amounts doing activities with dice and cards. It was super fun.
In Inquiry the whole senior school did a mock parliament together. Mr Hardie’s grade was the government, Mrs Windley’s grade was the opposition, and Ms Kruger’s grade was the minor parties/Independents. Students got to be the Speaker, Clerk, Prime Minister, Opposition Leader and all of the representatives. Mr Hardie’s grade successfully passed the no homework bill through our parliament so the teachers decided that there would be no homework in the senior school for a week. We celebrated with our breakdancing Prime Minister Josh.
Q: What happened when the dog went to the flea circus?
A: He stole the show.
In STEM this term we have had 2 project options: an egg cargo drop and a miniature water slide. The egg cargo drop is when you have an egg connected to something that can hold string and the egg, we put it up at a height and let it fall. The goal is to not let it crack and break. The water slide is where you put a mini toy on the waterslide, let it slide down the waterslide and get to the bottom without any water spilling out. My experience with stem has been very fun and I’ve enjoyed working with my friends in my group, and so has everyone else. My group and I are doing the waterslide challenge and we love it. We haven’t had to many struggles but we may soon when we test our design. Remember to come next term as we will have a STEM Gala Day to show off our projects.
Finally a joke.
Q: Why didn’t the skeleton go to the dance?
A: Because they had no BODY to go with.
