On Monday, the first day of school for the year 6s, we all walked to a badminton clinic at La Trobe. The clinic went for half an hour. We split into groups of four and had four La Trobe University students teaching us. We practised our hits and learnt some new ones. Then we played a few rallies. All of the groups learnt different things in different ways.
We all had a fantastic time and can’t wait to go back next week!
This morning we went to the Immigration Museum. It was brilliant! We learnt about lots of immigrants to Australia, even some who called Bendigo home. We then went on a cruise along the Yarra River and spent a few hours at ScienceWorks. None of us could beat Cathy Freeman’s running time! We also saw some algebra in the maths section (and thought Miss Jackson would be excited). We had a pasta dinner and now we are relaxing in the movie theatre at our camp watching a movie.
Today was our first day of our camp to Melbourne. We ate lunch at Federation Square. Then we went to the MCG for a guided tour. We went out on to the ground and saw where the players get ready. We also had a look in the Sports museum and played interactive sports, such as archery and kicking football goals. We went out for tea at a Chinese restaurant and walked through Chinatown.
This week 6B did lots of things. In Science, we did an experiment with yeast, water and sugar. In Maths, we worked on algebra and patterns. We did some activities in our books. We had Grade 5/6 netball tryouts. In Sport, we did long jump and hurdles. Also the new netball stadium was complete. In Art, we started a new project where we draw a face and draw shades on the face and then draw a reflection in the shades in colour. In P.E we are doing lots of practice for the athletics. That’s all we did this week. Bye M.F.
This week we have been given our first homework task on the iPads for the year. We need to do some organising, Maths, Reading, Writing, P.E, and Geography to complete the task and record it down in Pages. We started a big geography project where we had to study a country of our choice in the world and a country in Asia. In Maths, we have been working with 6A. We do lots with shapes and hands on activities and number activities in our maths books. We’re also learning about prime numbers and composite numbers. M.F
Hi. We are Grade 6B. Our teacher’s name is Miss Jackson. We have 27 students in our class. We have been talking to students from different countries on Skype. We had to guess what country and city they lived in. We also had to guess their school. It was really fun. You could see people from the other school waving at us. Thank you for reading. SB
