Discovery Time Week 2

Description: Today was monday which meant we did discovery time. My favourite part was Building a paddle for a kayak and making a little cushion for my koala. A challenge for me was making the cushion because I had to sew it and I had not sewed many times before.

Pogo Stick: I have got a lot better at jumping on the pogo stick and now I can bounce more than 10 times I did that by bending my knees.

Sewing: I made a cushion for my koala and I thought it was very fun but I kept pricking myself with the kneedle.

Blubber: I made my name with the blubber and it made a big mess. Blubber is like clay mixed with playdoh but it makes a big mess.

Building: For building I made a kayak paddle and now I am going to paint it.

Monday Discovery Time

Description: Today it was the first day of term 3! When we got to school all the year 4, 5 and 6 teachers told us that every monday this term we were going to do Discovery Time, from morning through till lunch time. We had to try and discover something new, so I went on the pogosticks for some of the time and I discovered that if you don't hesitate and just try to keep your feet on the foot ledges then you can just keep bouncing. I got a tip from chase and he said to bend your legs and it will make you bounce higher.

Pizza Fractions

Description: In maths today we got a challenge that we had to do the question was: 5 friends earned $35 between them. 3/5 of the money was combined to buy a $12 pizza. How much change did they get from buying the pizza. How much money did they have left altogether, from the pizza change and the 2/5 that was not spent?

SLC Reflection

Description: On the 5th of June (Tuesday) I had my Student Led Conference which is when you share your learning with your parents.

1) How do you think you did on your SLC? What was the highlight?

I think I did pretty good sharing my learning with my parents and my highlight was reading my report.

2) What did you do differently to make your SLC stand out?
Going behind the scenes and not just reading off the blog.
