Superman by Zach.S

Before I knew what I had done.  I had drunk the whole entire contents of the bottle.

One day I was at a science expo, I saw a bottle and thought it was lemonade.  Then it happened……

5 years later I was walking down the street then I saw a planes wing blow up!  So then I flew up and I helped the plane safely land on the ground and saved everyone.  Then I was attacked by Vilan Category 5.  Then he went Bang, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam then DOSSSSSH!  He got hit and went flying.  Then the bad guy go thit by a bus and went aaAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Then Superman hit him, like

POW!

Then the bad guy died which was good. Then Supermans powers stopped working and disappeared and then he died which was good and bad because all the vilans died and disappeared too.

The End

Max was a very different alien by Georgie

6. Max was a very different Alien.

He liked eating cheese and had a Crane on his Island that had broken down.

He had a best friend called Jack and they lived next door to each other. One morning they played at the beach on their Island. “Hi Jack” said Max “Hey! What do you want to do today?” said Jack “Play in the water” said max “okay” “you can.” said Jack, He didn’t like swimming because he would get a rash from the salt in the water, He sun baked instead. For lunch they had shells with crabs inside, he liked them very much.

When Jack and Max went home they played Monopoly , it was a tough game but Max won because he cheated. He couldn’t help cheating because he had a bad brain that made him do bad like cheat, eat shells and crash his planes.

At the end of the day they waved goodbye to each other, and then went to bed.

THE END!!!!

The Ingredient

The Ingredient

2. We bake gingerbread men every year for Christmas, and last year a gingerbread man came to life.

3.Before I knew what I had done, I had drunk the entire contents of the bottle.

It was Christmas Eve and at this time of the year Leah and Sharni bake gingerbread men. “Mum, can we make them now.” Said Leah begging her mum. “Fine then, but you girls have to bake them yourselves.” Said there mum. They had put a different ingredient in the gingerbread this time. “Umm….. Sharni did you read the label to this bottle.” “No”

“Oh no! its poison!!! Just forget about it” Said Leah.

They were baked in the oven for over 15 minutes. “Uh Leah, don’t you think that this one looks different to all the others?”

“Hello! I’m a gingerbread men”

“Oh my gosh! You’re a live gingerbread men” Said Leah.

But the girls put him out for Santa anyway.

It was 2 o’clock in the morning. All of a sudden Sharni and Leah heard a loud and frightful scream! The girls took a look down stairs and standing right in front of their eyes. He was eating the live ginger men. “This year you girls put out disgusting food out this year” said Santa.

“Why?” Said Leah.

“You didn’t even think of putting out beer!” He said. But Sharni thought he sounded like her dad for a second. She took off his hat and it was their dad! He had played a joke on them.

“Go to bed” Dad said.

And they did.

In the morning they got a baking set from Santa!

And they lived happily ever after.

The end!

Christmas Disco

Hi our names are Kyle and Jamison, we are here to talk to you about this special event happening on Thursday 12th of December.

We are holding a Christmas Disco on Thursday the 12th of the December in the gym, recess for Grade Prep to 2 and lunchtime for Grade 3 and onwards. Fees will be a gold coin donation.

This money is being raised to improve our school. We are planning to build wheelchair-friendly drink taps. It will help students that are disabled dramatically. But the price is high. We need more money and your support and if students would like to place a request for a song please write it down on a piece of paper for Miss Rap.

So tell your friends in other grades to dance in this year’s special Christmas Disco!!!

Social Skills Program – Thank you

Dear Parents,

Last Friday bought the conclusion of our Social Skills Program with Noosha and Nilusha.  The ladies wanted to celebrate the hard work and contribution the children put into the program with a class party and share the children’s homework task.  Unfortunately, they were called away to work at another school but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for providing all the delicious and wonderful food for our celebration. I was overwhelmed by the time and effort you all put in baking and cooking fo this event.
Here are some photos from the party.

Last week’s homework required students to ask their parents what qualities they thought they had and record them on a special card.  These cards were presented to me last week for me to write a coment on each student.  This week I will ask students to post the responses from their parents and I with our school community.

I am honoured to teach this wonderful grade full of talented individuals and look forward to sharing their final weeks in Grade 4 before they transition into senior school.

Internet Safety (Cybersafety)

Recently our grade has been lerning about different forms of communication as a part of our Inquiry Learning Unit (From Dots and Dashes to Digital Downloads). Some students and parents have raised concerns and have asked questions about some of the apps children use to communicate with each other. So as a grade we decided to do an investigation on some of these digital apps.

Today we brainstormed the different apps children use to communicate with each other digitally. They were:
Kik
Facebook
Instagram
Twitter
Edmodo
Skype
Snapchat
Vine
X-Box Live
Facetime
iMessage

Some students researched and wrote down 5 facts that we knew about each app, then we follwed the link below and read some tips about being Cybersmart.
You can read our reponses by clicking on the comments link.

In lesson 2, we will be sharing our research and safety tips with the rest of the grade and looking at the positives and negatives of each app. Students will then have the opportunity to work together and design our own class cyber safety guidelines and posters.

For more information on Cybersafety click on some of the links below.  But more importantly make sure you read the terms and conditions about the apps and get your parents / guardians permission before you download and use any app.

Competition Day

My nervous and anxious mind was shaking in my head. ” Today is the day,” I thought. The 10th of November had arrived… it was competition day.

The robotics team consisted of Eric, Josh, Sean, Henna, Nivethan, David, Thomas, Kaaviyan, Zoe and me, under the team name of CTRL-ALT-DELETE. We all were excited and when we arrived at the King David School in Armadale, it was nearly time for our first robot game. We were all getting tense waiting for Niv and Zoe, as they had the competition robot…. as time was ticking…..

Finally Zoe and Niv had arrived! We were relieved that Zoe and Niv had arrived in time. The Glendal students got on to the work while the Berwick Lodge students work on the Project (or as the boring part as you might say). Glendal students had to stop hitting the branch as they had just realised that they couldn’t have 5 motors which decreased the points but improved speed and had to stop pulling the plane and moving the house up which also decreased a lot of points.

It was finally time for the game… Overall the first round of matches was good, well I thought that the second round was the best out of all three rounds anyway.

We had to quickly move onto the Technical almost straight afer the game. Unfortunately, the judges were still judging for the Technical part for the team before us, at the scheduled time for us to finish the Technical. I was wondering what was holding them up. The door finally burst open.

Josh introduced the team and talked about the multi-collaborative team of different schools and nations. Then the Glendal students talked about the missions and gave them a demonstration. They also talked about the programs they used and what sensors they used for their mission. The judges thought it was pretty impressive.

Next we had another robot game. The Glendal students found some holes in the program and fixed them. “Hopefully,” I thought, “they will fix the problems and make it perfect.” And fortunately they did!

It was lunch time for us. Perfect timing. I was starving. But now I can’t really tell you what happened when the students got their lunch because I was taken out by my mum to eat a wrap and buy a Coke for Ms Rap and bought a salad roll for Henna’s mum. At the venue they provided lunch but apparently it wasn’t that good… My team was jealous of what I got for lunch!

We were ready for our last round of robot game. Unfortunately it missed a whole lot of missions but got Jeffrey the minifig to safety.

We started practicing for our third and final round of robots while Berwick Lodge started rehearsing our lines for the Project. We rehearsed in front of Ms G and Ms Rap, being our judges and parents being their ordinary selves. It was pretty good.

We were ready for the last part of the day, the Project. We walked up to the second floor and brought all the equipment with us and presented it to the judges. They said it was excellent.

Now was the most exciting or maybe the most nerve-racking 1 and a half hours of waiting. We were waiting for the final results of the winners. I was so excited when I knew this, we had won the State Championships and the robot performance award. We were celebrating on after we had finished the competition. To celebrate they each bought a slushee for themselves, except for me. Poor me!!

 

Social Skills Program with Noosha

In session 1 Noosha introduced herself and Nilusha.Then she told us about the three rules which were

  • Be positive
  • One at a time and
  • Listen and do.

We played a game after that which was called ‘The Line Game’ it was really fun you steped up to the line if you liked the thing that Noosha said. Once Noosha said who likes Justin Bieber? and only three students walked up to the line and every body started laughing then Noosha said it was little bullying and  it was bad. Then we played another game and it was like a team challenge, that game was fun too but I went out a few times, then we had to go.

Session 2

Our second second session we got a piece of paper and a texter and we had to write what we though a perfect friendship would have in it. Then we passed it around and told people what we think should be in a perfect friendship! Then we played a game, when Nooshia said something about a friend would say to you and you had to see if you thought it was healthy or unhealthy.

THE FIVE FRIENDSHIP POTIONS

  • UNDERSTANDS ME
  • HONEST
  • ENCOURAGING
  • RESPECT
  • FUNNY

Session 3

 In sesion three Noosha first revised what we did in the last 2 weeks, then we learnt about how to know if people are angry, sad and happy then we played a really fun game where we had a card and had to act out what was on the card, and the girls had to be partners with the boys.  I was Lucas’ partner and we had to do ‘scared’ it was really funny. Then we all got a piece of paper and had to write down three things that we think of ourselves on the inside. I wrote caring, helpful and I’ll always be there to pick you up when your down.

Then we got homework that asked what your family likes about you and what your teacher likes about you, then after that we played a game where we had to throw the ball to someone and say something good about them, then the time was up.

Social Skills Program With Noosha By Ella

Session 4

Noosha paired us with a partner. We got a piece of paper and we had to act what it said to our partner. I had to pretend to talk about something I did really well the other day and pretend my partner was stupid.

Then we had to decide on a cake that we all like and if someone disagreed we didn’t get the cake but we all decided on a cake that we all like.

Because it is our last session next Friday we get a class party!!!

Long Weekend Recount

Sunday: On Sunday I woke up at about 7:00 o’clock really excited for my first basketball training for this season. But I wasn’t prepared for what I had to do, actually I didn’t know what in the world was going to happen. I had random suggestions in my head of what we were going to go such as: will we do it the same as last season, will it be different, will we finally be split up in our teams?

Well when we got there since my mum was part of the basketball club committee she said something about a personal trainer, well later I found out the it was for a fitness test which I had to do since I was in the team 2’s!

We started off doing  ball handling skills (before the fitness test) such as: crossing over, crossing over with two basketballs, through the legs without dribbling and that was pretty much it.

Then we went to the fitness test, (yay!) first off they made us do as many as we could do push ups in a minute I sadly got 27 because I get tired, then we did the plank (it’s a painful thing don’t try it) I surprised myself by getting 7 minutes not only beating everyone even beating the coaches, after that we did a vertical jumps to test ourselves and see how high we can jump, lastly for the fitness test we did suicides two sets full court I did it in 1 minute 19.

Now we went out and joined the others doing passing and matches. I personally thought I went really well.

Finally we split up into teams and worked on our weaknesses.

Once training finished my dad started shooting the basketball, I went for the rebound then the ball hit my pointer finger and not only bruised it, it even made it swell up.

And of course it was my writing finger!

Tuesday: On Tuesday I woke up at about 8 o’clock  going into the rumpus room at around 9 I was wanting to play my PlayStation but mum said clearly Jamison we’re going to have a game free day.

Even though Cup Day is a big thing I completely forgot about it.

At One o’clock we had lunch I had noodles after that I had three zooper doopers! (icy poles) then I went outside and played basketball (basically having random shots and hitting them!)

Then I went to fountain gate to get stuff for my pop’s wedding (he has been married before) then we went home and finally it was dinner time my mum had a basketball meeting at our house it finished at nine thirty, and I went to bed at eight thirty.

Now today I woke up at seven o’clock and went to school at seven fifty.
