This video was about how hard it was to come from Vietnam to Australia, with all the obstacles in the way  in the eyes of an immigrant

It takes 5 days for a person to travel from vietnam to Australia, In the ocean there are pirates who threaten to chuck kids overboard on the trip there are lots of storms, also when people from overseas come to australia people are very welcoming

Why did his parents make a hole in the boat just to go with the germans?                              How did they manage to cross storms?

Crossing the seas back then would have been hard because of pirates etc.

Reasons for Federation [speech]

Ladies and Gentlemen I believe  NSW,QLD,SA,TAS,WA  Should join to make a country. Just imagine how easy it will be traveling from one state another state it will be so easy as the laws will be the same so you don’t need to pay extra money for traveling 1 state to another and the railway tracks will be the same in every state. We can also keep some of the laws we already have I really like the law that SA has the one where women can vote I think it gives women a right so they can chose what they want as well. Let’s not forget the defence, our army will be bigger and we will be safer and let’s say if an army attacks we will be stronger.Now Ladies and Gentlemen come take the step with for federation we will be a proud country a strong country come as we are AUSTRALIA!!!!

100WC..but how can something so tiny …

School again and today we had to write and essay, I was working really hard then Sienna bumped into me it felt like she had placed something on my back. Then suddenly I forgot everything I was going to write when I turned around to see Sienna, something started to control me. I ended up dancing in front of the class, but Sienna was too busy with a remote not laughing, I was so confused was she watching TV? Then my bestie picked something  off my back, it was a microchip! Sienna was controlling me! I didn’t get it something so tiny was this embarrassing, then I yelled ‘SIENA!’.

This video was about how Australia came a nation and how hard it was back then as great britain ruled over Australia. 

In 1642 Adan tasman stumbled into Tasmania if he had stayed we would be speaking dutch. Back then if you wanted to travel from Victoria to Queensland by train you couldn’t as the rails would be a different size. Back when they were deciding to come a nation the countries with less people [TAS QLD WA] thought that the big countries [VIC NSW] [SA NT were added later] would have more power

Did Tasmania straight away come a part of australia?

Why did they add NT and SA?

Victoria and New South Wales thought the were the best as they had the most population

100 word challenge …so that is why I am always last…

‘Every single tuckshop day I am always at the end of the line, last year is was when it all started. Because when I was lining up  a big bully pushed in he always used to pick on people so that day I stood up to the bully and yelled ‘STOP PUSHING IN AND HURTING PEOPLE’ then he turned around I could see thousands of eyes staring at me I was really nervous then he picked me by the collar and carried me to the end of the line then from that day  he did the same thing over and over again……so that’s why I am always last.

This video was about how back in the olden days how people believed that if you were caught life would be better but another  person wanted to set an example so he gave a long enslavement to the guards and one man dies while being punished 

Some people wanted to get caught as the thought they would have more pay. In prison there used to be hospitals. Some people say the Governor was exceeding his\her power by making a long sentence for prisoners 

Why didn’t Cubs say that he was sick?

What did the media do about it?

They help convicts settle in Australia they work on low money when they finish there jail time the get farm land

Goal for Semester 1

 

What I want to learn:

What I would like to improve on is my spelling in spelling it’s mostly like the words that sound the same like too, to, two or flower, flour other words like long words like insubstantial. I would also like to improve on not skimming, when I skim I skip important details so the book doesn’t make sense. My 2nd last goal is my handwriting I have very bad handwriting I can do cursive but it looks really messy . finally i think I should expanding vocabulary

 

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

For my spelling goal I think I should not use spellcheck on my laptop and try to figure out the word by myself in writhing [same goal] I should write slowly so I get the correct spelling and just sound out the word. For my 2nd goal [not skimming] I think I should keep my finger or bookmark in level with what I am reading so I don’t miss a detail. For my 2nd last  goal I think should write slowly then when I am ready I can write fast and it will be neat. For expanding my vocadulary I think I when I find a new a new word I should find its definition straight a away [can write it down]

 

How I learn and behave:

What I would like to improve on is listening attentively when I am listening sometimes I may start fiddle with anything around me. I would also like to improve on planning out my week in my diary last week I had no plan in my diary It was all in my head I was thinking if I had forgot I would be very confused.

 

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

For my first goal I think I should drop everything when I have to listen attentively so I won’t fiddle. For my second goal I think on Monday I should hear my homework then when I am home [or at school] I can plan in my diary and tick everything of when I am done.

Camp Reflection 🌈

CAMP REFLECTION

Last week the 5/6’s went to Camp Bridgewater

The bus trip was long

My stomach felt so wrong

We did some abseiling

I kept on failing.

It was still fun

I finished and it felt like I won

We saw a lot of seals

They were having their meals

We had some fun on the beach

When we were caving we saw leach

We did some archery with an arrow and bow

I kept on shooting low

We also had some great food

That set a great mood

We did some hiking

I was liking

We also did some snorkelling, surfing, geocaching and sand boarding

I was pushed out of my comfort zone

How far I had gone

This was my favourite camp so far

When it was over I felt sad

When we got home I was glad

To see my mum

And tell her what I had done

This video was about a girl wandering through the forest when she spots a cow but she doesn’t know it’s a cow she thinks it is an alien then she sees some British  people near were she lives so she goes to tell her Nan.

Aboriginals live in camp and they don’t know what a  cow is, back then they called the British, ghost people or boat people as they came on a boat also the believe smoke keeps mosquitoes away.

Why did she put out the fire?                                                                                                                                            What did she think when she looked at the cow?

The British banged the drum to get attention
