In art we have been learning to make clay bowls. It was a really good experience for everyone. The person that taught us how to make the clay bowls was a very intelligent lady called Ch`ristina. Some people where unlucky and theirs broke.
It was a lot of fun doing the clay bowls and I wish we could do it again. I hope you like my bowls.
Today st Margaret Mary’s celebrated book week. It was really fun and we did lots of activities on books. The main activity was to build a kite because on of the nominated books for book week was Ollie and the wind and it has a kite in it.
If you don’t know what book week is it when you get dressed up as a character from a book and celebrate nominated and excellent books.
This year I dressed as Mr.Bump from the Mr. Men series and My friends Alessandro and Dominic came as Mr. Clumsy and Mr. Tickle. This is some pictures of us:
In the middle block we did a “bookface” activity. This is were we had to use our book and body to make a good picture.
It was an awesome day and I loved it I wish we could do the day again.
Have you done book week before if you did what did you dress up as?
I give a big shout out to my mum for making an awesome costume and spending heaps of time on it. Thanks mum
Another shout out is to my friends Alessandro,Dominic and Will for telling me about the Mr. Men idea
And finally to Will because he broke his leg and couldn’t be here today and I hope he gets well soon.
On the 22/7/16 the grade 5 boys at st Margaret Mary´s went to Parade college to see how it is like in year 7. It was really fun and the subjects we got to do were Sport (soccer), Woodwork, library and Science.
I really liked the way Parade was set out and it was a really good school.
For our school dance, senior B are doing Bollywood dancing. As two classes, Senior B and Senior R practiced together and it was really funny. I tried really hard and it worked out superior. But with a bit more practice it will be perfect.
In Bollywood there were some really weird dances but we will get used to them.
In inquiry we have been making science videos. We made these videos to put on the sleek geek website but unfortunately we were too late to put it in.
The people in my group were Tess, Gautier and Me (Noah). We investigated why do our tongues stick to cold objects and it was a hard to research about it.
Something that I was proud of is that I worked well with my group and that our information and video was great. In the end we got a 14 ½ out of 20 and we were one of the only groups that got a score that high. We did lots of waiting and it was a long process but we got good result and that all that matters, having a good video and result.
I think if we could do something better it would have been redoing the sound because their were some bits that were a bit too soft and some was a bit too loud so I think we should focus on the sound a bit more next time.
We got feedback from the teachers and another group and they both said you should have better sound and I agreed on that. One good thing from the feedback was that we used our props really well and that we had a great script.
Here is my video:
I think I did really well what do you think about it (comment bellow)
