Hello there all you Solar Boat builders! Here are some links to help you understand more about the wiring of circuits. The first is some interesting reading and the second is a you-tube clip that you will need to watch at home. The third link could possibly be the most important one for your group – The Solar Boat building guide.
Here is my first attempt at creating an Avatar! I used Portrait Avatar Maker, it was easy to use and lots of fun. Reading is one of my passions and I have included a book in my left hand. If you could read the title it would quite possibly be along the lines of Eragon or Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, my favourite genre is Fantasy. I am also cuddling my cat Snowy, a fluffy white ball who has been part of our family for the past eleven years.
Although you cannot use some of the Avatar creators on the iPad I am sure that you will create something amazing. I am looking forward to seeing your Avatars this week and finding out how they represent you!
Today, in Maths, you will be looking at fractions OR decimals and using the 4 mathematical operations, carefully following the steps to complete these types of problems.
As you complete each type of operation problem, I would like you to create a ‘cheat sheet’ or a hints and tips sheet on what are the most important steps to remember to ensure you get a correct answer. This could have written instructions, drawings, diagrams or examples of what not to do!
What websites could you use to help you out? Where could you get questions from that involve the operation or fractions or decimals???
Today I would like you to explore other people’s stories about why they migrated to Australia. You can use the website ABC Splash or BTN to find some interesting stories or click on one of the links below. You may need to watch the video more than once to fully understand what each character is saying.
Hi all, over the past two weeks we have been working hard on creating our own political parties. These have to include: a leader, campaign slogan, party logo, at least 5 members, a statement for what they stand for, two proposed bill changes associated to school (realistic/viable/costings), five pieces of advertising/propaganda (banner, badges, poster, advert, pamphlet) and funding ideas for proposed bills.
On Thursday we will be spending most of the morning until 12:30pm preparing to present to the school all of the above. From 12:30 – 12:45pm you will be setting up your political party information booth in the Upper School courtyard ready for the constituents to vote from 12:45pm until 1:30.
As Thursday is your campaign day you are allowed to come in clothes to represent your party. You will need to make sure that you are well presented and your clothing will encourage people to vote for you. Feel free to share this post with your parents!
After lunch on Thursday, the successful party will be given time to decide how they are going to govern the Year 6s on Friday (within the rules of the school of course!) This will have to tie in with your party statement too.
Good luck and my the most well prepared party win!
