FINAL POST

Hi everybody,

I can’t believe it is already the end of an incredible year, full of excellent learning and lots of fun. Just so you know this will be my last and final blog post for primary school.  


This year had lots of challenges, successes and good moments, here are some of them:

This year the most challenging things were…

Completing my final inquiry projects, even though I have completed them all I always found it challenging to complete them straight away or complete them without having to do them for homework, except for our term 4 project. I also found it challenging to make my work neater and to complete my writing quicker.

This year I was successful with…

Our term 4 inquiry project it was a complete success, we finished on time, we included everything we needed to make our video good, except for affects. I was also successful with my glogster for our lit circle book, I couldn’t believe that I managed to finish it at a alright standard.

Some good moments were…

When I made it into the second round of athletics for shotput and discuss, but unfortunately I fractured my leg so I couldn’t go. Another good moment was when we went to Fun Fields for our big day out I had lots of fun. My favourite moment is when we made a egg float in salty water for our chemical science video.

Overall the year has been great, I can’t wait to start a new journey in high school, but i’m sad because we are leaving primary school. This may be my last blog post, not just for the year maybe forever.

This is William signing off,

Good Bye.

Christmas Art

Hi everybody,

For art we have creating a picture of Christmas baubles on a Christmas tree, we used shapes, line patterns, colours and collage. We also used straw blowing as a form of pattern making. I was surprised that my artwork came out really good and full of colours, I reckon I did a great job. The most difficult thing was blowing the green food dye all over the paper to make the Christmas tree, I felt like I was going to pass. It’s cool how effective the green food dye is, it looks so much more like a tree than drawing one with texta or pencil.

What do you think of my artwork? Is it good or is it good?

Writing to Politicians

Hi everybody,

For writing we have been writing persuasive letters to politicians to try and persuade them to vote for Recommendation 12 of the Blewett Review which would make correct labeling of vegetable oils, added fats and sugars mandatory. We especially want the politicians to vote for the correct labeling of palm oil because it is causing many animals to become extinct like such as the Sumatran Rhino, Malaysian Sun Bear, Asian Elephant, Orangutan and the Sumatran Tiger. The name of politician I‘m writing to is The Honourable Dr David Gillespie. I’m most proud of finishing my typed up letter, getting halfway through my handwritten letter and making sure that my writing is neat. The most difficult thing was writing my letter neat, it took so long and at the end of the session I only made it halfway. I wonder if the politician will get my letter because we are sending it by mail and email. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fruB9VkIDanj8cw1XjFUaQtnfHu__KUD3fG4jv7OBGE/edit

What do you think of my letter?

Stewardship

Hi everybody,

For the past few weeks for religion we have been learning about how we can be stewards of the Earth. One of the understandings we looked at was to identify how humans beings have misused God’s creation and name some solutions to environmental concerns.

I discovered that some ways human beings have misused God’s creation is by taking resources for granted and waste it without thinking, human beings pollute the Earth and destroy habitats for resources we don’t need. Some solutions to environmental concerns is to recycle, cut down on unsustainable products and not waste resources e.g water.

I wonder if all human beings will take a stand and be stewards of the Earth? I want to know more about how we can be stewards of the Earth? Even though I know that you have to take care of the Earth to be a steward of the Earth is there anything else you can do to become a steward of the Earth?

Inter-School Sports!

 

Hi everybody,

Finally Inter-School sports starts next week, unfortunately I do not get to participate because of my fractured leg, but I get to kind of coach the soccer team.  I am looking forward to having fun, watching the team enjoying themselves. For me it’s not about winning or competing, it’s just for fun. I’m hoping to develop coaching skills and to earn the trust of the players. A good team works together, are friends, they have fun and put lots of effort  into the game.

What do you think makes a good team?

Ecosystems

Hi everybody,

Today for Inquiry we learned about ecosystems,  everyone got a ecosystem to research, I got the African Grasslands. If you don’t know what an ecosystem is, an ecosystem consists of habitats with animals, insects, plants, microorganisms that need each other and hold balance. I researched the African Grasslands, I discovered that the African Grasslands have 2 seasons, wet season and dry season, the grasslands cover about half of Africa and dry season is winter and we season is summer. The most challenging thing was to find lots of important information that had to do with the ecosystem. I wonder how many animals all together there is in the African Grasslands.

What was the ecosystem you researched? Was yours the same as mine?

Around with literacy

Hi everybody,

 

This term for literacy circles we have been doing something different instead of doing a role each week and conferencing with your group, we have to complete four tasks over a week and do our literacy circle book we got assigned to read. My book is called someone like me.

One task requires you to read any book for the whole session, one is exactly the same but you need to write your wonderings, feelings, Unknown/interesting words, questions etc… on a posted note, another is to complete a task on lit circle book, and the other is to conference with the teacher. Also we have to record how many pages we have read, what time we started reading and finished, what the date it is and what the book is called. I was surprised that it was easy, fun and that I completed it. I’m most proud of my lit circle task, it is 10 questions about my book, I think that I put a lot of detail and effort into the questions. Im determined to try to fully complete my Literacy Circle tasks to a high standard every week.

 

What is your book?

Two classes one Zoo

Hi everybody,

On Monday the 9th of October, Senior B and Senior R went to the Melbourne Zoo in Parkville for our inquiry topic about endangered species. I discovered that one of the SOS 10 the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect was thought to be extinct for 80 years, but were still alive. The reason why they became extinct is because the europeans’ introduced rats which ate most of them.  Now I know that all the reasons why animals are becoming extinct/endangered, the reason is because of CHIPPD which stands for Climate Change, habitat loss, Introduced species, pollution, poaching and disease. I wonder how they know that Orangutans will become extinct in 10 years if we don’t help them?

What did you learn at the Melbourne Zoo?

My General Goal

Hi Everybody,

Welcome back to my blog it’s been to long weeks of resting now it’s time to get back to blogging. My Goal For this term is to put more effort into making all my work neater, even if it’s a draft, and a bit more legible. I chose this goal so that when I get to high school I could get marks taken away for messy work and it would also look bad.

What do you think of my goal? What is your Goal?

My Awesome Inquiry Menu!

Hi Everybody,

 

For the past 6 weeks for inquiry we have been completing a Menu. Not an ordinary Menu, a menu for what we choose for our inquiry topic, I choose Issues. For the Canape we had to write the references that we got our information from, for the Entree, we had to choose between a timeline, venn diagram or mapping, for the main we had to choose between a historical narrative, exploding the moment or open minded portrait and for dessert we got to choose a movie, song/poem and an art piece. It was really fun, Now take a look at my menu.

Did you enjoy this topic? Did you like my work?
