Writing – Describing things

Our focus for writing for the last couple of weeks has been adjectives and describing words. One of our main activities we have done has been describing a character. We were given a group of photos that were AI generated to describe. I picked a plumber looking guy who had to robotic legs.

I enjoyed this activity because it helped expand my vocabulary and it was overall just a really fun activity. Next time, I think I would pick a character that had more to describe and take my time on it.

Here is my description;

Have you done this before? Did you enjoy it?

The Leaven – Parable told by Jesus

For R.E in Room 9 we have been looking at Parables. Parables are stories told by Jesus that have a message behind them. Take the Good Samaritan for example; 2 people who looked like they could help the man did not, yet the least expected person did. This message is Never Judge a Book by its Cover.

I picked the Leaven since I thought it had a really good message behind it. I enjoyed this activity because it was very interesting to figure out what Parable resonated with me the most and would be the most fun to do.

Here is my slideshow of the Leaven parable;

What is a parable you know?

Kit List (Netball)

For the past 2 weeks we have been looking at a sport agency activity. It focuses on our Winter Sport that has started last week. For one of the activities, we had to look at making a Kit List for our sport. My sport is netball, so I had to find pictures of what I needed for my sport such as my uniform, water bottle and snacks.

I really enjoyed making this kit list because it was really fun to find the photos and be able to look more in depth in a sport I am really interested in. Here is my kit list;

What sport would you pick and why?

R.E – Bible

Over the past couple weeks, we have been taking a deeper look into the Bible and all of its different parts. We did an activity to refresh all of our memories of the bible such as Gospels, Stories and Facts. I really enjoyed this activity because it taught me new things that I didn’t know! It helped me to understand the depth and importance of the Bible and how lucky we are to have access to them.

Here is my work;

Here are some questions I have to answer;

One thing I know now? That there are 66 books in the bible

The most important thing I have learnt? How to find verses and chapters In a Bible.

Something that surprised me? That there are over 40 bible writers!

The thing that interested me the most? How many different parts there are in a Bible.

 

Do you have a Bible at Home? Do you read it often?

PINK SHIRT DAY

Today in Room 9 got taught about Pink Shirt Day and why it is related to this week’s virtue. Our virtue is Accepting this week, which is perfect because it ties into what our focus is for R.E. We had to design a pink shirt that helps encourage others to be kind. I really enjoyed this activity because it helped me realise the impact of bullying and how much being kind can mean to someone.

When I designed my shirt, I did it from scratch so that it could be more unique. I liked designing it because it was a really nice relaxing activity. Once we had finished the shirt, we were asked if we would wear it. I said yes because I liked the simple design!

Here is my shirt;

Do you know about PINK SHIRT DAY?

R.E – Gratitude Poster

Yesterday in Room 9 we looked at the virtues. Our school follows these virtues and they represent our school. I was in a group with Izzy, Quinn and Hunter and we focused on the virtue Gratitude. The sub-virtues under Gratitude are Prayerful, Reflective, Trustworthy, Hopeful and Joyful.

We had to think of ways on how we could show Gratitude next term (Term 2). It took a bit of thinking but it was a pretty chill activity! I really enjoyed this activity because it helped me reflect on how I have been showing Gratitude these past 10 weeks.

Here is the poster my group created;

How do you show Gratitude?

KEMAL ATATURK

In Room 9, for the past week my reading group has been looking at Gallipoli, Chunuk Bair and Kemal Ataturk. We have been learning about the war and the amount of lives lost during that time. It is really sad to see how hard everyone struggled as well.

Learning about Kemal Ataturk has been very interesting. It is crazy that a small watch in his pocket saved his life. We also read a lot of texts about after the war. I made a google draw about Ataturk and what he did after the war.

Here is my Google Draw;

Have you heard of Kemal? What would you do in his position?

Autumn Learning Journey Velociraptor

In Room 9, we have been been looking at the Autumn Learning Journey (ALJ). We had to pick an activity to complete and post on our blogs. My friend Izzy and I decided to do the Velociraptor Day one. We had to follow an art tutorial on how to draw a velociraptor.

It was really fun to do because it showed me how  people interpret different things, and no one can do something the exact same way that you can. Our drawings came out completely different even though we followed the same tutorial, which is really cool!

Here is our drawings;

My one is the red and orange, while the blue one is Izzys.

What do you think? Would you do this? Why/Why not?

Duffy Books Term 1

Today at NBC, we were given our Duffy books. At the start of each term, we are given a booklet filled with books. We were allowed to pick 4 books in order from the ones we want most to least. Then, they try to give you your top 2 books. The reason why we pick 4 books is incase one of your books you wanted has already been taken.

After we were given our books, we listened to Melissa Stokes and her story about reading. Since she works at the news, she has to read out the information. It was really cool to see how she incorporates reading into her everyday life with her kids.

The 2 books I got were called Never Never by Serena Valentino  and it is a tale of Captain Hook. The other book I got was called If You Tell Anyone,  You’re Next by Jack Heath. It is a story about Jayden Jones and how he went missing.

Thank you to Avonhead Rotary for supplying these books;

BEDMAS Rule

For Math in Room 9, we have been looking at  the BEDMAS rule. BEDMAS is a rule that helps people solve complicated equations. BEDMAS stands for Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. This is the order you would do the equation in. For example if you had 5 + 2 x 3, you would do the multiplication first because it comes before addition.

I really enjoyed this activity because it helped me understand BEDMAS better. Even though it is a complicated rule, it definitely makes math a little bit easier.

Here is a Google draw explaining what BEDMAS is and how to solve equations using it;

Did you know BEDMAS before this? Do you think we need BEDMAS?
