This week I am trying Netball for the first time. We play inter school sports every Friday and I normally play football, but this time I am playing Netball. I have never played it but I know a lot of the the rules, because I watched the ANZ championship. I have just seen the weather and it looks like rain a lot of the day. Some year 6 students including me have just wrote a letter to the principal and sports coordinator about a tennis team. We are also thinking about a new cricket team. I have just finished the book Holes. That has been my favourite book ever.
This week in maths I learnt about the cartesian plane. The cartesian plane is a tool in maths that help you pin point a spot on a map or anything else. Here is a picture of a negative cartesian plane.
I also made a show me for the parents maths information night. The link to that is below.
I am still reading the same book holes.
In daily 3 2 friends and I have created a group called the Cricket Sensations. We are a trio who sing songs about cricket. Here is our link to our page. We really enjoy making people laugh with our songs and our moves. It all started when we had to make a ballad for school. So we made it into a bigger thing. It all started with the sing Swing Young Jimmy.
At the moment I am reading a great book called Holes. I am really liking it because it draws you in. The book is about a boy who gets accused of stealing some special baseball shoes. He then goes to court and can choose to go to Camp Green Lake or kids jail. Camp green lake is in the middle of a dessert. The dessert used to be a lovely town with a glistering blue lake running through but now it is a punishment place. At Camp Green Lake you have to dig one hole a day. 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep. Stanley meets a group of boys who have been sent there to. He gets on with them at the start but not for much longer. With the book Holes I am in a literature circle with 3 other boys we are all really engaged and into the book.
I made this show me to show the parents how we solve our subtraction sums at school. We do not use the old school way we use rounding, breaking it down and counting up instead.
Hope you like it.
My group was Charlie, Josh VS, Matt and I. We were investigating Sikhism. Sikhism is a religion from India. It is similar to the Catholic religion because it has one God and it has rules and regulations/customs. Some customs of theirs are they have to have uncut hair, they are allowed to wear Turbins, thy have to wear a steel bracelet and have a steel sword. I think we did a good job with our Prezi, we included lots of information and a diagram of a temple they use.
In maths for the last couple of weeks we have been planning a workshop about percentages. We had to make a virtual store and sell products. We had to make profit of 15% of our main price which was $194. we did that at a profit of $202.09. Here is a link to our website.
On Friday night I played football against the other undefeated team, Barwon Heads. We were not thinking we would win by 47 points. The final score was Barwon Heads 0-0-0 to us 6-11-47. On the Sunday it was my Confirmation Mass. It was a special day for all the Confirmation candidates. On the Wednesday it was an assembly run by the year 6’s. It was very funny. On the Thursday my brother played basketball. He was undefeated for the season sos that meant his team were the premiers.
On the Thursday our freinds from Sydney arrived. They are here to stay for the weekend. On the Saturday I played football against Ocean Grove. we won by abot 50 points. After that we went for lunch in Geelong. Then after lunch mum, dad, Hunter and our freinds from Sydney took me to a special place for my birthday. I didn’t know where we were going until we got there. We arrived at a Go Karting track. I was so excited. I beat dad, Steve and Hunter so I was happy. After that they took me to Cold Rock the Ice Creamery. I was excited again. That night mum, dad, Steve and Kerry went to the school trivia night. They won the whole thing as well as mum winning the crown raffle. She won a night at Crown hotel. On the Tuesday my Nanna came back from her 8 week trip from England.
On the Friday it was my birthday. I was pretty dissapointed because I had to go to school. I got a Go Pro, some mounts and some other cool things. That night I played football against Leopold. I was captain with Cooper because his birthday was on the saturday. It wasn’t a smooth night because in the under 10’s game the umpire told a kid to run behind him while he was balling it up he said run to the kid and through it over his head. Our runner went up to him and disscused it. Then after the game the umpire came to our runner and argued then mum got involved and got pushed by an angry women. But the good thing is is my team won. On the Saturday my family and I went to Forrest. we went with some other familys. We went to heaps of places as well as cool bike rides. On the Tuesday My dad and I had to go in to Melbourne for my dad’s job interview that was a fun day.
My mum, shows a lot of fruits and gifts all the time. She shows a lot of patience and she shows respect to everyone. Mum shows patience when Hunter and I don’t listen to her or do the right thing. A lot of people tell my family that I have the nicest and happiest mum. She also puts other people first and thinks about caring for other people before herself. She always is helping other people and they can always rely on her to do the right thing. She is extremely generous with both her time and money. She gives her time to the school when she organises big P&F events. My Mum also organised for our family to sponsor a child in Africa because they are a lot less fortunate than we are.
