Under the sea

Under the sea, under the sea. Under the sea is my science presentation title. You’re probably asking why I chose the title under the sea. Well I chose it because my text was about what the ground is like at the bottom of the ocean

The science expo is when all of the year 5 classes in the school search about one main topic then write an explanation text about it. We did it so we understand a bit more about a living and breathing objects or non-living and breathing objects. All of this was presented on Wednesday the 7th of September in our year 5 classrooms.

My highlight was all of my finished and ready to show the visitors on the Tuesday. My lowlight making my model because it was hard to make it out of concrete so it was all running and it was hard to make volcanoes and trenches because it was a seabed. Next time I think I should do the model a bit earlier than I did but I think my time that I put in it went really well.

The Final Results


This is a picture of the final results.


Why did Australia come tenth in the Rio Olympics this year? With our knowledge two other people and I had to answer why we believed Australia came tenth in the Rio Olympics.

So why did Australia come tenth in the Rio Olympics?

I believe that Australia came tenth because Australia has 424 and winning champions U.S.A have 555 athletes. U.S.A normally have one athlete in every event because there a big country.


3 types of ‘meaning for reading’

‘Ding’ that’s my light bulb telling me to tell you what meaning for readings are. Literal, inferential and personal reading what are they? Your probably asking well I’m going to tell you. This week our reading Intension was to explain the 3 types of ‘meaning for reading.’ The 3 different meaning for reading allows you to answer different questions.

The first I’ll tell you about is called literal. Literal is when you use the evidence in the text that you’re reading to answer a question or answering anything else relative to the text. Literally.

Now I’m going to explain the one that is called Inferential. When you hear this word your probably thinking of infer. Infer is the bass word for inferential so it’s basically the same, using clues or hints in the text. Then connecting them all together to come up with an answer by looking at the hints and clues.

Last one and personally I think your gonna like this one. This one is called personal. In personal reading you normally use experience to answer a question, like something you have smelt, felt, touched, heard and maybe even seen.


To me

Dear Future/older self Mikaylah,

As you probably know we had a student led conference, if you remember. I need to tell you, you need to look back at this but you will know if you’re looking back at this because your looking at it. Clear, okay. At my presentation I shared my proudest pieces or something I thought I had improved in. The presentation was presented in front of our year 5 teachers and Mum.

You would think the same thing because your me, so you would agree with me. I thought I did really well with.
Maths-explaining a page in my book and showing Mum the published piece.
Literacy-telling a very short side of my writers notebook piece and the story.
Inquiry-explaining what a thinkers key was.
If you don’t agree with me then you’re not me.

I know we’re amazing but there’s still things that silly us didn’t do that we need to improve in.
Stumbling on words.
Making sure I have everything out.
They’re the only thing cause we’re super.

From past/younger self Mikaylah.

No yawning here this is my yarn

These past few weeks we have been writing a yarn about our Australian endeavours character. Here is my yarn in writing.

“Not only was I looking after my kids, I also had to look after the store my own store. Eliza Perrin is my name, the other day I started running my own store. Yes a women running a store in the gold rush. I didn’t know what to expect I thought that it was going to go down in the dump straight away. But seeing people walk in and out made it a blast of fun but it was quite weird. Most people sounded a bit different, I saw people from different country’s, lots of the diggers though. But the good thing about the store is lots of diggers came lots of them, I had a sense I was going to make a load of it but that’s just a childish dream. But even if I was or wasn’t I was as bright as the sunshine, especially when the doors first opened.”

The Olympics are in 57 days

How are the original Olympic Games different to the modern ones? It’s different because now we have more modern stuff that we can use. Also some of the sports have changed.

How did we get the modern forms of the games? We got the modern form because it started to get dangerous.

How would it be different? It would now be different because only men competed and were used for slaves. It would also be only Greek men.

I didn’t know that chess was that old!

If it goes to fast then just pause it.

Practise makes perfect

In the last couple of weeks we have been practising for NAPLAN. The things that we practised were maths, persuasive writing and reading.I felt a bit uncomfortable about some of the reading questions.

I’ve noticed that I wasn’t very good at answering inferring questions.

In the next week there are three things I can do is
1. Ask my Mum to write down a question and I will answer it.
2. When we are on improve next then I will look at the sentences more closely.
3. I could also ask a question about the book I’m reading and ask why.
I will continue to do this every day.
