Art

Hey guys,

In art recently we have been making things related to Christmas which excites me as its coming up so fast! I now see people already putting  up there Christmas decorations makes me think about how soon its coming up. Anyway in our art we made a Christmas bawl balls. We made a water colored background then cut out a few circles like bawl balls then we stuck them onto a green   colored background which represented our Christmas tree.

Have you done something similar? Or what have you done to prepare for this Christmas so far?

Palm Oil

Hey guys,

We have been learning so so much about palm oil lately. For our writing we wrote letters to politicians voting in the recommendation 12 blewett review for correctly labeled oils like palm oil. IN order to do this we had to learn a lot about the causes of palm oil plantations. We also based out inquiry topic on animals that are effected similar to the way orangutans are affected by palm oil. I picked this term to learn about the campaign “There calling on you” this is about gorillas and right now i don’t know much about them but soon i hope to be a genius about them.

Religion

Hello everyone,

For this term we have been learning about religion and as our topic we learnt about was respecting god’s creation and respecting it. We learnt about what we should all do to help save god’s creation as we can all take part. By helping the environment you are showing stewardship, showing stewardship is when you be kind to people and show respect to all living things. I think that everyone should always try and show stewardship in their everyday lives. How do you think you could show Stewardship?

Inter school sports

Hello everyone,

Finally the time has come, We are starting to practice for inter school sports. I have been looking forward to this event for a long time. Inter school sports is when you verse other people in certain sports. This year I am in the soccer team which was my first preference.  As this is my last year with this school I will try and make it a memory by winning most my games and having fun. By playing this sport I hope to improve teamwork skills and communicative skills with my friends. Lately we have all been practicing and training for the days to come as it is very exciting. I think a good team is a team who cooperates and they all work together. They also in courage each other to try there best a have a good time. Have you guys ever played inter school sports, If you have tell me what sport you played and if you could give me some tips that I could use during my games

Ecosystems

Hello everyone,

As you may know we have been learning about animals and everything related to that topic. After doing our food webs we started learning about ecosystems. We learnt the difference between a habitat and a ecosystems. We also had to study an ecosystem and the one I had to do was limestone cave which was very hard. Most animals like birds and insects live in caves but there a few amazing animals like wolves and snakes that live in there to. I think the learning about ecosystems helped my understanding the difference between that and habitats. I knew nothing about Limestone Caves so it was great to learn about it. This topic was very fun and I hope we can come back to it one day.

What ecosystems do you know? Can u name them all?

please comment below 🙂

Liam, Bye

 

Food Webs

Hello guys,

 

For our inquiry this term we are learning about animals as I said before but this week we are making out own food webs. As I am learning about the cheetah I explored its food web. I found out that lion were on top of the savanna food chain. I found this interesting as lions don’t eat cheetahs but they can kill them. I think that food webs are very interesting as you can see who eats who. I’m really excited about continuing my food web and hopefully learning more about animals. Have you ever made a food web?

Natural habitat

Hey guys,

 

Guess what happened on Monday. All the seniors went to the zoo! This term we are learning about animals and how we affect the population of these animals.

 

W went to the zoo to explore the SOS 10. If you don’t know what this is it’s a program to raise awareness for 10 animals that are endangered or critically endangered. After learning about these animals and a lot of other things.

 

My favorite fact was that the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect was thought to be extinct for 80 years until they were again discovered and brought back to the world.

I thought the excursion was very fun and interesting as I learnt a lot of knew things.

I would advise going to the Melbourne zoo.

What is your favorite animal in the zoo and why?

Liam,

 

Score a Goal

Hello guys,

 

Do you guys set goals for your learning? well now i’m gonna set one for this term. For this term I think that I should put more effort into my work, so that I prepare myself more for high school as I need to get an idea of how much harder it would be. I also think it’s a good Idea to give me something to achieve this term. So what would you set your goal as?

Inquiry Project. Done!

Hello guys,

 

I have finally finished my inquiry project. It has been a long term a it’s nearly come to an end. Here I have presented all my learning that i have done this term. I now know a lot more about refugees and asylum seekers and more about immigration. It was hard trying to make my imovie as I did not know how to display it. This term was very fun and I enjoyed studying this subject. If I were to do it again though I would pick policies around migration as my topic.

Here is My final presentation:

Hello guys,

 

Recently i have been working on a google slide about the book “Fox” by Margret wild. We learnt about the character descriptions as our learning intention was to be able to make connections on the text that we read. We wrote poems and descriptions on the characters in the book.
