Jakes Inventors Show

In grade 4 we are learning about inventions that have changed our lives. In leep we have made movies about a invention of our choice. I chose the ipod.




The ipod has changed our lives by introducing a new era of technology and making contacting and entertainment easier.




I think Tony Fadell [the inventor] made the ipod to let people carry a heap of entertainment, notes and contacts in there pockets.




Tony Fadells knowledge from his job helped him invent the ipod.



I reckon in my next movie I could improve the way I put the movie together.




This is a video that I have made about tony fadell and the ipod.

Camp Waratah Bay

Camp Waratah Bay

On September the 2nd  Grades 4R , 4Y and 3M all went to Camp Waratah Bay. We went to camp from Monday to Wednesday which was two nights and three days. The bus ride to Waratah Bay and back was four hours, but we had a short stop at Coal Creek, Korumburra . The bus had two rows of seats, every seat and was fairly combatable.

When we got there we had a meeting about what we were going to do and about all the rules while we were on camp. The next thing we did was unpack all of our suitcases and we checked out all of the rooms. Then we had lunch. After lunch we had a 5k walk to the rock pools and back . We had to go looking for sea creatures like starfish and crabs. After dinner, we had Rumbug Idol all the performers were very good and very talented.

The next day we had all the activities, there were seven of them. That night we had a night hike, we found a massive star fish it looked like it was poisonous. We also toasted marshmallows around the camp fire. Then we watched a DVD before going to bed.

The next day we had to pack up all of our stuff, clear the rooms and then we had free time. After that we had a sausage sizzle for lunch it was very nice. Then we went on the bus back to school.



[ I recommend we go back to Camp Waratah Bay, it is Awesome !!!! ]
