  13. Climate Action
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life on Land
  16. Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
  17.  Partnership for the Goals

This term the year 5/6’s have been working on the Global Goals. This term like any other term we have a PLT (Personal Learning Task). Akuac, Daisy and I are together and we chose to do a project on Gender Equality.

What is Gender Equality?

Gender Equality is where a curtain gender get less rights. Usually in this situation it is usually females that don’t get as many rights.

Why is Gender Equality a big deal?

Gender Equality is such a big deal because:

       A. Women don’t get as many rights

       B. Men get more rights than women

 How did Gender Equality become a BIG deal?

Gender Equality has always be a BIG deal. It started ages ago when men decided that women weren’t strong enough or women couldn’t do curtain things. It started before the time when women where at home cooking, cleaning, washing the clothes.

The Witch Hunters Craft

The Witch Hunters Craft

By Jade.C, Keira.H and Vivienne.L

There once were twins named Hansel and Gretel.

Gretel owned a gun made of metal.

Hansel and Gretel found a house make of ginger and candy.

The witch who owned the house was called Mandy.

 

The wicked witch invited them in.

Hansel and gretel thought “This is such a win”.

Mandy locked them up.

And then offered them a dixie cup.

 

Gretel then remembered she had a gun.

She got the gun and shot which, she found it fun.

BANG, POW, BOOM.

The witch was DOOMED.

Then they escaped from the house – Made of ginger and candy.

Then Hansel and Gretel scurried from the ginger house like a little mouse.

Earth’s New Moon!!!

Earth’s Has A New Friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Earth has a new constant companion. NASA explains this:

A small asteroid has been discovered in orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth. It will remain there for centuries to come.

As it orbits the sun, this new asteroid, appears to circle around Earth as well. It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet (a Moon), but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion.

“Since 2016 HO3 loops around our planet, but never ventured very far away as we both go around the sun, we refer to it as a quasi-satellite of Earth,” said Paul Chodas, manager of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object (NEO) Studies at the Jet Propulsion LaboratoryImage result for earth's new moon in Pasadena, California.

2016 HO3 is the name of the asteroid and a quasi-satellite is something resembling a satellite.

I think that it is really cool that an asteroid has been part of Earth’s atmosphere for 100 or more years but was only discovered in 2016.

Our BIG Win???

On Saturday the 13/5/17 my netball team and I lost our netball game 11-13, but… we are 6th on the ladder and we won because we lost by two but, it is a BIG win because that is the closest anyone has ever gotten to beating them this season. It was an amazing feeling because the last time we played them we lost  23-2. So although we lost we still won.

My Busy Week 4

Hi everyone,

This week has been a busy and fun one. On Tuesday the year 6’s did a Leadership Day. We learnt a number of thing about public speaking and how to be a good leader. I learnt about the six ‘P’s for public speaking. They are, Prepare, Practice, Persist, Pretend, Positive attitude and Project voice. A student from Siena College also came to speak to us about her role as College Captain and told us the process on how she got it and what after school stuff she had to give up. The Year 6’s also had a free dress day. Later, on Thursday I learnt how to make a paper crane. How to make it is very difficult and I had to get help every time I made one. It has also been very busy because I have had to do Circular Relay Practice and dance and marching practice for Twilight Sports. It has been a very busy week.

Week 8 Term 4

It’s almost the end of the year! This week has been great. As I said in my last post I we learnt how to make a google site for our ePortfolios. Miss Emily also ran our art session for us and that was abstract art. I also finished my inquiry PLT (Personal Learning Task). The country I was doing was Cambodia and I learnt a lot about it. Cambodia is near Vietnam and Thailand. Miss Emily also does writing with us and she teaches us different types of poetry. We have done shape poems and that was my favorite type of poem. That was my fantastic week.
