Like it’s Dynamite

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice we gon’ light it up like it’s dynamite. If you’re wondering why I’m singing this is because last night I had my school concert. You’ve probably guessed that my grade did Dynamite by Taio Cruz.

For this concert we had to put a lot of effort into it. First we picked a song, before we ended up doing Dynamite we were going to do lean on/thunderstruck but it didn’t work out but our teacher came up with doing Dynamite from just dance. Next it was choreography, what we just did was copy the moves and when it got to the part that said put your hands in the air we went into a semi-circle and did tricks (Sophie, Charlize, Sabine, Amy, Madi, Amelia, Fintan, Jarrod and I). We practised one hour every Wednesday until last night.

Last night going into the concert I felt excited and not nervous at all because I do dancing out of school. During the dance I felt proud of the whole grade because we were able to do the main part of the dance. After I felt sad because I liked the dance and it was the last time performing it.

Buff’s New Brother

Your probably wondering why the title of this post is called Buff’s New Brother. Well it’s because that’s what my picture story book is called. I made a picture story book for my 2017 prep buddy. We went through lots of work to first write the text then paste the text on, draw and colour the pictures and then getting it ready for our 2017 prep buddies.

What I liked about this project was drawing the pictures and writing the text. Next time what I would do differently was making sure the text was in the right places and trying to draw quicker.

What am I curious about climate change?

Although cows are amazing animals they’re making our climate change. Ceri is a meteorologist and climatologist, today she came and talked to us about climate change. She came to tell us about climate change so we can learn more about climate change.

What I learnt from this presentation is that humans are the main cause to Co2. Also 97% scientists believe that climate change is real and the other 3% are normally paid by gas stations or don’t study climatology. I also learnt that glaziers are melting into water. Cyclones are becoming more violent but not as often and rain is getting heavier in the eastern parts of Australia. What surprised me was the whole in the ozone layer is slowly shrinking.

Resilience is an ability

img_1912Resilience, what does that mean? Well resilience means that if something or someone throws something tough at you, you bounce back up and don’t stop youself from archiving

Today all the year fives did a dance at assembly. We did the danced to one of David Guetta’s songs featuring Sia  called Titanium. This song was the right song to dance to for resilience because the line like “Shoot me down, but I won’t fall.” Sounds like someone getting told he/she can’t do it but the person is still going to try to achieve it.

I have shown resilience when one of my friends and I tried to do a trick together. But one of our other friends said we wouldn’t be able to do it.

Dog On Log

“Dog On Log” is a picture story book about Dog, Frog, Hog, Cat and Rat. Dog and Frog were getting ready for Cat’s birthday. But when Dog and Cat were walking across the log. The log started to tumble and it tumbled into the bog and they got muddy.

I think the theme in this is to take care of your friends.

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.”
