Our Rap                                                                            How did you go about achieving this?

I have to go to school Mucallum.
I have no choice What resources were used to help you?
But the bullies are mean A computer.
I always hear their voice
                                                                                            Did you do the resource on your own or 
They shout at me collaborate with other people?
Push me down I did this task with Micah Samuel and
Shove me in the pool Blake
Try make me drown How did you find the process?
                                                                                             Fun and difficult
No-one helps me
I tremble in fear What did you enjoy the most about the
I have no friends process of creating a rap? Having a laugh
and i'm always scared with them
Now it’s the last verse What might be your next step?
Where the bullying ends To go off and check it
Gonna get back up

The friendship mends


Maths Learning Term 3

WALT: Solve division problems using an algorithm.

For An Example

6 Divided by 79 = 13r1 

Maths - Measurement

My goal was to read and explain everyday time problems.
I learnt how to tell the time.
  • Every number or dot shows 5 minutes
  • When the big hand is on the 3 it is 15 minutes past.
  • When the big hand is on the 6 it is 30 minutes past, which is the same as half past.
  • When the big hand is on the 9 it is 45 minutes past.
I learnt about measuring time - time relationships
  • 2 hours = 120 minutes
  • 1/4 hour = 15 minutes
  • 6 hours = 360 minutes
  • 1 hour = 3600 seconds
  • 1/2 hour = 1800 seconds 
I am feeling quite confident in telling the time. 

Term 2 Dance Program

We did a dance program for 2 weeks. At the end we had to perform what we had learnt in front of our parents. Its something I will not do again.

Iv'e learnt that dancing is hard to learn when you are practicing fast it is very hard to learn.
I have enjoyed missing out on learning and I am happy we are done.

I can hear the waves crashing over the boulders, the wind blowing the sand around and I can hear a lot of seagulls chirping and feeding their babies.

I can smell fishy seagulls and dead seagulls, I can smell the disgusting salty and fishy smell of the seaweed. I can smell gooey fish and the salty sea water.

I can feel the tickle sand underneath my feet, as well as the disgusting rotten salty seaweed underneath and the spiky nippers from the crabs that are pinching me owwwww.

I can taste the salty water splashing into my mouth, salty slimy rotten seaweed in my mouth from swimming and I think I have got a fish in my mouth EWWWWWWWW.

Mirror in the attic

           Mirror in the Attic
WALT write a “moment in time” piece of writing.

I can see:
I am touching something like water
Myself through the mirror
I can hear:
A vibrating sound
Splashing water
I can smell:
Nothing because my nose is blocked from sneezing after breathing in all the dust.
A hole lot of dust
I can feel:
Slimy gel on the mirror
Freezing cold water moving around on the mirror
I can taste:
Particles of fluffy dust in my mouth
I can taste the lunch I had before

The girl kneels carefully in front of the mirror curios about what might happen…

She sees… herself in front of the mirror wondering why it is so clean. She thinks it would be covered in dust.

She can hear the creaky wooden floor as she is walking to the mirror. She can hear the rain outside and the curtains blowing all around.
She can smell a whole pile of dust floating through the air. Then she sniffs up a sneeze, a a a chu.

She can feel the freezing cold water on the mirror, when she touches it she feels a slimy gel. Then she touches it again and little waves of water start to appear, then start to vibrate.

She can taste particles of fluffy dust in her mouth. She can taste the sandwich that she had before.

Sarah is the only member of her family who sees what will happen to them in the future.

Woodend Camp

                                   Wooded Camp

17/11/16 WALT: describe our feelings about camp.

I was really excited about going to camp. When I was thinking about it like what it will look like ? When I was thinking I thought who was going to sleep on top of me and I was thinking what it would look like outside out side. It looked like a pile of trees. I heard there was mini golf there I thought I wonder what courses there will be ? I wondered if the courses were hard or not but they turned out to be easy and hard. I wondered if the actives were fun ?

                         Camp Activities
Climbing wall: The climbing wall  was fun but a little bit scary I thought I could do the third one but it was too hard I  only got to halfway and then I tried the second one and I got to the top and on the third one I keep bouncing off the wall.
Team Building: The team building was really fun maybe my third favourite.Team building was fun because there were these two poles and we had to circle round them like the number eight then we had to quickly go round and finish in our same spots the reason we had to go really quick is because we were timed and I think we came last.
Air Rifles: With the Air Rifles they were fun but hard to hit a target but I hit a green target but we only got three shots and there was two guns so we got three shots on each and someone in a other group got a duck.
Archery: The archery was good cause i all ready have my own bow-arrow when i was shooting i had my own way to hold it but that time i had to hold it different and that was harder my own way is easier but when i was shooting i got the blue and i missed about 2 shots as well.
Go-Kart: Go-carting my first favorite it was really fun h

WALT: Describe a New Zealand habitat and the animals who live there.

My habitat is the forest because it has lots of endemic and native animals
Like a kiwi and a pukeko. Animals live there because there are a lot of of bushes and trees for them to hide from their predators.In the forest there is a lot a plants. In the forest there is a lot of shade but not a lot of sun.


The kiwi is endemic to New Zealand. I picked the kiwi because the forest has big bushes for the kiwi so it can hide from it’s predators. There are about 68,000 left in all of New Zealand. We are losing 2% of our unmanaged kiwi every year - that’s around 20 per week.


The kea is endemic to New Zealand. The New Zealand kea is endemic parrot found in the south island’s alpine environments. Kea are a protected species. They are worlds only alpine parrot, and one of the most intelligent


Pukeko is a native bird to New Zealand. Pukeko are commonly seen along the marshy roadsides and low-lying open country,the birds range is increase with agricultural development. Unlike many other native birds, the pukeko has adapted well to new habitats, such as grassed padddocks croplands and even city parks, necessity brought about disappearing wetlands.

Comic Book

WALT: use Comic Book to show what we have been doing with our learning


From the Journal of Jack Simpson

Today I am happy because I saved a lot of wounded and

I survived the difficult walk up to the battle front.  I

saved 14 people but one man didn’t make it. He got

killed by a grenade when he was about to throw it back

but it exploded.  It was horrible because he was my best


Earlier a bullet whistled past my head and I smelt gun

smoke in the air.   The soldiers are fighting at the battle

front and there is dry blood everywhere.  I could hear

screaming when the men got shot.

I wish I could go home to sleep in my comfy bed away

from this awful war.
