The reason I chose my avatar was because it had a ponytail which is what I usually wear. It's wearing sporty casual clothes which I also like to wear. I chose the background because it is my favourite colour.

In our class we have all been working on an oral presentation called a day I'll never forget. My oral presentation is going to be about Mary Bryant. She is known for the first successful escapes from the Australian penal colony in the 1770s . I'm felling more confident than I did at the very start.

To do a mind map your writing has to be mostly horizontal. The branch has to go thick to thin. You also need one colour on each branch. Your writing needs to be neet.

As you can see I new nothing about day and night on my before page because there is a moon and no earth.

On my after page there is a lot more Information that explains how day and night happens. As the earth spins it is day were the sun is shining and night were it is not facing the sun.

Well the earth spins around and the sun reflect on the earth that mean the sun is always on a part of the earth. That means on the other side of the earth is night.

 

 

 

On the 9th of September all of the grade fours walked to Warina Aged Care to perform 4 poems, Mulga Bill's Bicycle, The Man From Ironbark and the Bush Christening. All of the grade fours sang Waltzing Matilda, Queensland version. Then we had some time after to ask some questions about how life was back then and what they did. I taught one resident how to use an iPad and games that she could play and how to download apps. I had a great time and I'm pretty sure that they did too.

The biggest morning tea was held at the grade four class rooms. All of the grade fours brought a plate of food or a gold coin donation. We brought a gold coin donation for the people who have cancer to help them to recover. I learnt that even if you bring one dollar it can always make a difference.

I am in year 4. We just read a picture story book! We just read Farmer Duck it had some hidden messages.

It is a story about a lazy farmer and a little white duck who has to do all of the work on the farm. The next day with a moo,baa and a cluck all of the animals made a plan to get rid of the farmer. It did work and the farmer never came back.

I am going to challenge myself. To pick one of the messages for one term. That will make me successful. Working together can be fun. If you work your hardest it begins to be fun. And when you do it with your friends you can finish your work that is the best you can do.
