This Term was great, it was my first term in grade six with an awesome teacher and to put it all together I shaved off my head!
This is also my next monthly post which means the answer to my last post’s question which was “what is the name of the cloaked figure that guards the wizard prison azkaban?” and the answer is “a Dementor”. So well done to those who got it right! My next question is, what does it say on Sirius Black’s wanted poster in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkban? I will post the answer on my next monthly post, but for now good luck!
This term has been great, here are some of the highlights!
Twilight Sports (green team sadly won)
Shaving my head for pancreatic cancer research
Winning the best mask award in Italian
Doing a really cool Powtoon for Gender Equality in inquiry
Hi everyone, welcome back to a new year! So far the year has been great, and it will continue to be great through-out the year with new friends, new classes and new learning. This year I have dedicated my blog to Harry Potter and with each monthly post will come a new Harry Potter Quiz Question!
This month’s Harry Potter question is….
What is the name of the cloaked figure that guards Azkaban the wizarding prison?
If you have an answer, you can comment it to me before my next post where I will put the answer!
This week was very, very busy. On Monday a new student teacher named Ms Ward was going to to stay in our class for the month. Our usual sport teacher wasn’t there so a substitute came to fill in and we played dodgeball the whole time! On Tuesday we went on an excursion to the Dandenong Ranges which was very fun and we learnt all about the dry forests and rainforests. Wednesday was a very exciting day for the grade 5’s because they met there prep buddies for next year! I have two boys, Zeyad and Sebastian. On Thursday Senora Senzo assessed us on Italian and I think I did Ok. On Friday Ms Ward took us for sport and we played cricket and basketball! Friday nights the annual school disco but I’m not allowed to go because I have to go to choir practise. ):
Today in class, we watched a video about landfill. We learnt all about the process of a piece of rubbish and how it ends up in the ground, I did not know that first everything goes to a place where they figure out if the rubbish can be recycled or not, the stuff that can’t be recycled, goes to the landfill site, where they bury it 16 metres under the ground! Then once they’ve covered it with a very thick layer of dirt, they plant trees on top, to breathe in the carbon dioxide that the rubbish makes. But carbon dioxide is not the only gas that it produces, it also produces methane and that is pretty bad, but in some countries, methane is used to make electricity, so that is the goal now for Australia. We also learnt which bins to use for different objects. I believe that if they can figure out how to turn methane into electricity, then Australia will be all good! What do you think is a good suggestion, to making landfill more environment friendly?
In the individual Men’s Archery, Australian (Taylor Worth), was up against Venezuelan (Elias Malave). It was a very close game. The way a game of Archery works, is that each player has 4 shots at a bullseye target using a highly sophisticated bow and arrow. and then it’s the other player’s turn to have 4 shots. There were 5 sets and at the end it was a draw, with both athletes on 32 points. They then took it in turns shooting 1 arrow at a time and Taylor got 3 10’s in a row! So it was a well deserved win for him! Elias Malave was a bit disappointed, but he knew he had tried his best! Taylor now goes on to the Archery Men’s final, so we all wish him good luck in the next round!
Today in class we learnt what reviews were and how to do them. Then we were asked to review something we had recently seen, watched, been or in my case, read! So this is my review on Diary Of A Wimpy Kid 7.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid – The Third Wheel
Greg’s Middle School
At Greg’s school, there is a valentine’s day dance and Greg does not have any go to with until the last minute where his best friend Rowley saves the day by telling him that a girl named Abigail does not have anyone to go to the dance with so the 3 of them decide to go as a group of friends together! Once the get to the dance though, it all falls to pieces.
My Personal Rating
This is a great book, probably for 10-15 year olds. I liked it because sometimes I can really connect with Greg having the problems in his life. I also enjoyed reading the little comic strips in the book. Definitely recommend it!
My Star Rating
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⅘ stars
So start looking for it today and all the other Diary Of A Wimpy Kids!
Today the grade 5’s went over to the juniors to read them the picture story books that we made. My picture was called “The Visit To Lock Ness” I did all my pictures by hand and I believe you will soon be able to borrow it from the school library!
