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?
