Term 3 reflection

My Reflection for term 3 2015

Stamina:

My stamina is very high. I can read for 1 hour and 8 minutes. I can read lots of different types of books and know what type it is as in Robin Hood, Folk tale and the little mermaid, Fantasy. As i’ve said before I know what the . I’m reading Star by Catherine Bateson and Riddle gully runaway by Jen Banyard. I have just started star and i’m interested in it so far.

Self regulation:

I’m a hard worker and I have a heap of grit. Grit means to be how determined you are with your work. My working strengths is reading and maths and my weaknesses are writing and tests

Deeper learning:

I try my hardest to make my learning as deep as possible. With the inquiry unit on Extreme weather conditions I have done a lot of research on Vesuvius and Raung. Again with the grit I think I have done very well with my project and I liked that Ms. Fitz chose this activity for us.

Determination:

I am very determined to learn new things like orienteering and old games back in history like soccer ( football if you’re British ). I like to have a go and show my work to others like my latest story Blank Streets. I’m very determined to have a go at something I didn’t do very well last time. I never used to be very good at writing ( PROOF )

 

Reading, Writing, Maths and Inquiry:

My reading i’ve done really well in a grade 5 & 6 standard and I have a great stamina for about 45 minutes. My writing I think i’ve improved the most. I use to be told to go back and retry and see what I could do better. My Maths I am really good at. I can add fractions, decimals, times fractions and a lot more. My inquiry I think i’ve done pretty well with it. I have in mind that it’s a 5 6 standard so hopefully it is.

What I liked about this term:

I really liked Gym with Mr. Palmer and thr WW1 bio’s and what we did them on. I also liked going to Fresh Face Friday. Thankyou for a great term Ms. Fitz

Thanks for reading

Cheers

Fractured Fairytale. By Kam and Jorja

One day in France there was a little boy named Gold.He had short brown hair and sharp green eyes.Gold’s best friend was Jackie, she had long curly, blonde hair and she had piercing blue eyes. One day while Jackie and Gold were walking in the park to get to little Blues house , they found a little sweet tiger.The little sweet tiger looked hungry so Gold asked Jackie to go get meat from the butchers. So she went to the butcher to get some meat.

 

Jackie came back with the meat ,and then she gave it to the little sweet tiger ”Goodbye” said Gold and Jackie and of they went to Little Blues house.They continued to walk till they got to Little Blues house! When they got to Little blues house Little blue asked if Jackie and Gold could go to the party , Gold and Jackie said yes little blues Mum told the three friends to get in the car because they were going to the party.When they got there,there was loud music and a disco ball.Then they saw their best friends Beauty and the Beast.

 

They said hello and then Beauty took Jackie to get her into her Blondella costume she loved it! it was very sparkly and very shiny and beauty got got her beautiful gown for the play ”Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the party play” Beauty yelled everyone clapped as the play begun.

 

Little blue had the time of his life.  At twelve o’clock the beat got uglier than ever before so he ran far,far away never to be seen again.Beauty ran of the stage to run after the beast.Little blue tripped over and broke his arm. Jackie ripped her dress and everyone could see her undies, so she ran in embarrassment Gold stayed and then he was dancing with a girl called Wierdella then…. Really, everyone lived happily ever after

 

A big thankyou to Jorja for being my partner and helping me do the puppet show. A thanks to the prep’s for listening to our story and a HUGE thankyou to Miss Fitz for letting the class do Fractured Fairytales.
Thankyou for reading

Five ways to keep cool in summer

      5 ways to keep cool in summer!

     1. Go to the beach. The sand may be super hot but if you bring the world’s toughest shovel & bucket. I think you would be able to dig at least a six foot hole. Once you’ve finished digging use the bucket as a carrier and get some fresh water from the sea. Pool party underground! ( WARNING, May result death )

      2.Go to a public swimming pool! Hire a cab, limo and some officers to remove all people from the swimming pool. Make your entrance with the limo smashed   through the window. Cab in the pool. Not so public now.                                               ( WARNING, May result immediate arrest and charge)

     3. Go buy a extra, extra, extra large eskey. Open it up, fill with super cold ice   and water and get in with your cat and friends. Take it to Antarctica, and take it to the coldest part. Dig a hole, get a polar bear to throw you in, and sit there (WARNING, may freeze and drown to death immediately )

     4.Lock yourself in the freezer at home. Cover your body with ice, ice-cream, icy poles and frozen peas. Stay there for at least 17,747,475,773,874 hours before coming out. ( WARNING, mother’s don’t like children having the fridge/freezer doors open. May result some spanking )

      5. Go to a freeze chamber, lock yourself in and eat liquid nitrogen. Do not come out within the 3 minutes that you have to.You have to wear shorts, singlet, sweat band and long socks for style and lie down on the ground because it’s heaps colder (WARNING, may freeze to death immediately. NOT JOKING )

Blank Streets.

Blank streets

The icy wind is blowing on my face. The cold, black paving are making my feet throb with pain. The streets are cold and soulless and there is only two people on them.
Me, Anya and my unconscious Orphanage sister, Charlotte. With every little step, I feel the life coming out of my body and time is getting slower and slower. Oh, I wish with all my heart that my parents loved me for who I was, then I would know that someone did love me. I hear a loud yawn and my back warming up.
“Charlotte?” I ask softly
“Where am I?” replies Charlotte
“On the streets”
“Why?”
“Some bandits knocked you out. You’ll be fine”
“Oh god, please tell me you’re alright!”
“Yeah I’m-”
Something stopped me from replying to Charlotte. The sound of gunshots. Mean, deadly gunshots. There was some silence.
“You chum, get up or we’ll hang you at the ghetto’s” says a distance voice
“No,  you guy’s are meant to be my mates” says another voice
The last voice sounded familiar. “David?!” I yell“Get away from him!” I hear a THUMP noise. A sound of a man being pushed over. “Anya!” David yells
“Why are you here?”
“I’m here to take Charlotte to the hospital”
“Are you crazy! The place is crawling with Nazi bugs”
“David, it’s our only-”
“No, you are not going, well not by yourself anyway!”
 “Fine”

So that was how our adventure began

My rough draft for this story;

         This is this story in my book

I had no plan but I believe that I did a good story. I planned in my head so this was all right . This is my hand-written version and I hoped you liked it. You’ll find that I made some changes so don’t worry, it made it sound better!

My Inquiry: Volcanoes!

Mount Vesuvius and

Mount Raung

Mount Vesuvius is a volcano built up of alternate layers of lava and ash in the Gulf of Naples, Italy, about 9 km east of Naples and a short distance from the shore.Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79  that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman Cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum several other settlements.

That eruption ejected a cloud of stones, ash and fumes to a height of 33 km, spewing molten rock lava at the rate of 1.5 million tons per second. An estimated of 16,000 people died due to action of heated water in the earth’s crust and some fast-moving current of hot gases and rock.

Vesuvius has erupted many times since and is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years.Today, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3,000,000 people living nearby and its tendency towards explosive eruptions. It is the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.

Mount Ruang is in Bali and a few weeks ago erupted and all the ash stopped flights coming in and out of Bali.It is located outside of the capital city of East Java and has a 2-kilometre-wide and 500-metre-deep caoulron like Volcano surrounded by a grayish rim.It is the tallest volcano of this gr

oup of Volcanoes that are close by.

Well, I think the similarities are that these two Volcanoes have a big part in today’s histories. So if these things didn’t happen we wouldn’t think that Volcanoes are dangerous to us humans. Vesuvius was one of the first Global Warming that the Rom

ans weren’t prepared for. That told us to stay alert. Raung, on the other hand taught us to be prepared, and ready to evacuate

Volcanoes can kill people and suffocate them in the ashes. Volcanoes effect people in many ways, some are good and some are bad. Some of the bad ways are that when the Volcano erupts, it doesn’t spew out lava. It blows out ashes that burn and can suffocate you.

Since they are standing still they can’t run away they get demolished by ash and lava. Bye bye buildings! Some of the not that bad ways are that houses, building and roads get completely covered in ashes.

Lava flows are too slow to run over people, but that’s not the same for the houses and buildings. Since they are standing still they can’t run away they get demolished by ash and lava.

They erupt because of density

and pressure. The lower density of the magma relative to the surrounding rocks causes it to rise (lots like air bubbles in syrup). It will rise to the surface or to a depth that is determined by the density of the magma and the weight of the rocks above it.

A volcano is a Mountain that opens down to a pool of lava and molten rock below the surface of the earth (In the crust). And when pressure occurs, the Volcano erupts & lava

spills out of the Volcano and runs down the Volcano and whatever is in its path… Bye bye.

Thankyou for reading!
Stay tuned for my term 3 reflection
