In my reading group we read a poem called Early.
we wrote a poem as a group for our activity

Glittering stars and shining moon
Bugs snuggle in their warm cocoon.
Stars cover the night sky
Bugs up in the trees so high.
They come out to eat,drink and make a new friend.
Rain wind and thunder blend
Worms sleep in the ground
Other bugs are all around.

Prove it w/s 27

Can I add interest to my writing by using similes and metaphors?

One bright sunny day I strolled up a mountain to do a nature hike then as I was strolling up the mountain I saw the cutest wombat ever and it was as fluffy as a cloud. I continued my walk in the mountains then I saw the biggest snake ever. An anaconda slithering across the dirt track. I stepped a couple steps back when I did I bumped into the same wombat that I saw a couple minutes before. As soon as it saw the anaconda it is an athletic wombat and ran as fast as a train. I strolled after it but after a while I lost it and never saw it again.

A New Animal

 I was exploring a big cave and I discovered a new animal.
Here are the facts I know about it.
My wild self has a half rattlesnake body
and half human body. My wild self has
Rodriguez bat wings. My wild self has
Siberian tiger paws and it slithers around
everywhere quietly. It lives in a dark spooky
cave and sleeps during the day.

Chunky Chalks

Chunky Chalks
Mrs Palmer my teacher, she read the class a story called Chunky Chalks. Then we made some with a buddy. My favourite part was making it with my buddy and seeing what it turned out like.

What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?

Plaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.

  1. In a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.
  2. Add some dye to colour it.
  3. Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.
  5. Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.
  6. Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.
  7. Leave there for at least 24 hours.
  8. Open the bag and see what you can do with it.

  1. After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.
  2. The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.

Gypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form.

When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.

My Fear Of Coffins

It was my Nana's funeral. That day I had to dress into a nice plain white T-Shirt. That same day my tummy felt really gross from looking at the coffin. When I saw the coffin I tried not to see it by closing my eyes. While I was there I didn't talk and my body was stiff. During the funeral I was bursting into tears and they were like rain falling on a roof.

Student Blogging Challenge Week 3

Today we learnt about a site called Creative Commons. On this website you can use images, videos and music without getting special permission from the owner. It's a website that you and other people can place images, videos and music for other to use. We watched a video to learn about it.

Here is the link to the video.Creative Commons video 

Here is the website you should be using.Creative Commons website

Related imageHere is an image I found and a story I write about it.

One day a lost camper was looking for water everywhere but he just could not find any. The next day he woke up and started looking for breakfast. When he was looking he slipped in a puddle. A couple of steps from there he found a little waterfall. On the bottom of the little waterfall there was a little lake so he took off his camping bag. He did not care if his clothes got wet. He jumped right in because the reason he wanted water was because he was getting sun burnt and he wanted a drink. After he got out and got dressed he started walking. Where he was heading, he finally found a town. He found his home in the town. He lived there for the rest of his life.

Green Pastures Camp

My favourite activity on camp was kayaking on the dirty lake. While I was Kayaking I saw at the other end of the lake the raft makers so I went to say hi. When I came back I banged into someones kayak and it tipped over. I turned my kayak and saw that someones kayak was sinking. I went over and asked what happened? What happened was that the kayak tipped over and then they flipped it back over. There was lots of water in it. After me and Yoonsu headed back to the shore.

The Marble Experience

Hypothesis: I predict that when I put the rubbery marble in to the small glass of water the
marble will dissolve and make will dissolve and make the water go foggy.

Materials: Water, a cup, a marble made of special plastic.

1. You need a special plastic marble and a cup fill of water.
2. Put the special plastic marble into the cup of water.  
3. Leave it for two or three days and then see what has happened.

1st When I put the marble in the water it had a bubble barrier around the marble.
2nd Before it got the barrier around it it sunk right down to the bottom of the cup.
3rd The marble really did not float.  
4th The marble got bigger and you could not see it in the water. It felt smooth and squishy.

Result: When we dropped the marble in the cup fill of water the marble pulled air in with it and
created air bubble around it. When I put the marble in the cup it soaked up water, it was now
more water than the plastic and that was what made it invisible.

Adaptation: I would change the the colour of the water.

Hide and seek

20, 21, 22, 23 oh no! Time is running out. I have to quickly hide in the green agapanthus.  I  ran fast to the agapanthus and hid against the bush in the very very long grass. 5 minutes later ohhhhhh
who dropped one it stinks so I blocked my nose while I was crunched up in a ball. While the poo stunk out my hiding spot I kept on ¨hearing found you or caught you.¨  I kept on crunching up in to an even tinier  ball. 10 minutes later, ¨Oh shivers and dam it¨ I said to myself, Tycho found me.  I angrily walked out of my hiding spot and looked down. So that was the thing that stunk out my hiding spot - dog poo. I went to the court and stood with Daylin and all the other people that got caught and just waited and waited and waited and waited until the round was finished.

Liam was playing xbox while Bella and I were playing tag. Liam was playing midnight club and minecraft. George is going to live in our garden in the concrete bath tub. First we have to hose down the bathtub and dig the hole for it. At the moment George is living in a container in our garage on the bench. I think George can't wait to get into his bathtub.

Describing miss nation

We have been learning about describing people and things. We had to use wow words to describe Miss Nation

Miss Nation is medium sized teacher she is not to big and not too small. She has bright turquoise eyes and has blue glasses. When she takes them off her eyes look smaller. Miss Nation has two big teeth that she calls her bunny teeth. She always wears black shiny shoes. She has dark hair like chocolate and whitish skin.

When we get too noisy Miss Nation says keep the noise level down, the noise level is up here it has to be down here. In the morning Miss Nation takes us out to the court to do skipping. She is the fastest I think I am the second  fastest. She taught me how to do angle skipping and that is you skip over the side of the skipping rope. She gets a bit frustrated when people interrupt her reading or writing or any other groups she is with.

Describe it

I had to work with a buddy to describe a polar bear scene.We used adjectives and verbs to describe it.

One freezing, cold morning I was asleep in my bed and when I woke up and went past my open window. I turned on my fiery light   but then I stopped  for a sec and went back to my window. Outside my window was a giant, fluffy polar bear. So I went outside to calm it down because it was hitting its head on the window cover. I finally got it calm and it tried to follow me inside so quickly shut the door on it so it couldn´t bite me.

final Reflection

Some things I’ve enjoyed this year are: art because I like drawing things like buildings. I am practising how to draw
cars and other things and the crazy science show

Some things I found challenging this year: khan academy. mass maths and maths sheets and other maths things.

Some things I’m looking forward to next year:
Miss Walker coming to Carlton school to teach
because she is a fun teacher.  

Friday, December 2, 2016


This week I have enjoyed making picture frames in reading. On my picture frame I put on buttons, flowers, soft stickers.
What I found challenging is: mass in maths, khan academy and writing three whole pages. Why because
my maths questions were harder than I thought.
Some things I'm looking forward to: Christmas my sister coming back from Australia for Christmas.
