Finding a Fraction of a Number

Finding Fractions:
Today during Maths, my group has been learning about finding fractions of a number. In this screencastify, I have explained how you can do that.

Character Study: Willow Chance

Learn: To study a character in our group
Note: This is only the first chapter, so we don't know much about her yet. We will add more to the Character Study as we read more into the book.

Everyday Theatre: Game Master

Learn: To write a recount about Everyday Theatre

What Happened?: Two girls from Everyday Theatre came to our school to teach us about family violence through drama.

Slogan: Every Child has Hopes and Dreams

The drama that happened yesterday was very intense and kind of relatable. I really liked how each character had a problem that they needed to work on, eg: Dave (T’s Dad) was abusive and needed to look for help, while Mirawa (T’s Mum) needed to pay more attention to T and give him more support.

I feel like one of the characters that needed to help T more was Jack (T’s Bff). Even though Jack showed his support and concern, he never told anyone about T’s problems at home. He should of told his mum so she could have got into contact with T’s mum or even a social worker.

I think another character that needed to support T more was Brian (Mirawa’s Boyfriend). Even though he tried to bond with T (and got rejected) he just left it at that and never tried again. I think he should of sat him down and talked about the current situation. He should of showed his genuine support and if he did that, I think T would of opened up more to Brian.

In conclusion, I think the show they performed was very heartfelt and had a deep meaning. They even gave us cards with the "What's Up" and "Kidsline" phone number for when situations like this happen.

Aquila and Priscilla

100 Words Challenge❗️

100 Words Challenge
Words: 139

Prompt: ...but I didn’t understand the instructions...
Challenge: We have to try and write a story with a hundred words.

Today in Maths Class, I got in trouble. “But I didn’t understand the instructions” I said to the Maths teacher when she asked me why I didn’t do the assignment. “Your instructions are so confusing,” I whined. “How am I supposed to know how to *reads off maths sheet* multiply the factor of X by the square root of Y?!

My teacher looked at me and asked in a cold voice ‘Why didn’t you ask someone to help you?” I thought about this question for a while before I could give her an answer, “I didn’t want to distract anyone during the test.” I smirked, I thought I was going to get away with not doing the test (on purpose) until my teacher said. “Go to the Peace Room.”

Family Tree🌳

Family Tree Art

We started doing our family trees at the start of term two. 
I found this art pretty difficult because there were a lot of stages to it. I didn't add all my family members, I just added my siblings and my mum, and her parents.

Solar Power☀️

Solar Power - Inquiry
(Aaliyah & Claudia)

Last week, our class was assigned to create a presentation with a group about Solar Power, Hydro Power or Wind Power.
We chose to do Solar Power because it sounded interesting.
Yesterday, we presented our work in front of the whole class and we were rated by our teacher, Mrs Lauchlan. We got 69/100
I was very proud of Claudia and I, I think the only thing we needed to work on was talking about our slide, not reading it.

I hope you enjoy our presentation about Solar Power!

Geometry Stop Motion Movie

Geometry Stop Motion Movie
(Aaliyah, Stella & Ewan)

Today, we had a learning assembly. So basically what we did is showcase our learning throughout this term. Everyone in my class were put into 3 groups and were assigned to create a stop motion about a certain subject, eg: Art, Holy Spirit etc. 
Our subject was Geometry.
Our video is very short because we spent a lot of time wasted on the map and coloring it in, but I still hope you enjoy it. 🌈
