Valedictorian Speech


Welcome students and parents to this years graduation. Since prep all the way up to year six has been such a journey. In prep I remember walking into the classroom and seeing other kids and our teacher, I was really nervous. Leigh paired us with another prep, I was with afrah. We weren’t friends and didn’t talk to each other but then we somehow became friends and we still are. From prep to year two we had Friday fun which was where we spent and hour and a Friday having fun! year three was different though.

In year three we got the opportunity to play music, I chose violin and I still play it now and will continue in high school. Year three was also our first camp which was at sovereign hill. The things there were very interesting and we got to see how school was like a long time a go and we also got to do panning for gold in the spare time. In year four our camp was at camp currembene. The activity’s were really fun like the flying fox, the obstacle course and we also had tennis courts and I love playing tennis.

Year five was a really good year and probably the one I was most scared to move up too. We did so many different things I had never done before at school like the met challenge which was super fun, what we had to do was find certain things that the teachers had for us too find. In year 5 we also got to do gala sport which was in summer at the start of the year and we got to chose a sport.  I chose volley ball.  What we got to do was to go to different schools and play.  we also started the e connect program which was when we got our laptops.  This was good because it made school work very easy to organise and easy to put writing on our blog.

We also did winter sports. In year 5 I chose soccer.  Winter sports was a bit different because there were different sports.  But this year I played netball instead of soccer.  The MIVIP program I talked about in year 3, when we got to year 5 some students got to go to music camp.We went with other schools and it was really fun seeing what other schools play there instrument. This year was another good year and I made new friends as well we did the met challenge again this year and we are going to Canberra for camp. I now want to take this opportunity to thank my teachers who have taught me everything from writing my name to presenting speeches and debates in class masters to improve on our public speaking. Now with all that I have learnt from primary school I feel I am ready for high school. Thank you

week 9 100 word challenge


It is 9:00 pm and it is freezing outside, literally. The wind was so loud and strong I could barley sleep. I had my lamp on to look out the window. I was looking at the trees move and everything else just sitting there the same on a dark pale night, I turned to a different direction and saw something shake and shiver, it was small and fluffy. I snuck outside without my parents knowing to find out what it was and the cutest little kitten was just sitting in the middle of nowhere as it shivered it looked up to me and I took it inside.

I was with my friend and we thought we should just go to the park to talk and gossip, a bit later we decided to play I spy. The game just kept going till we reached a strange place in the park there was a sign ” what does it say” I said ”lets go find out” so we went over to the stand but out of nowhere a floating cape\hood thing just came toward us ”AHHHHHH” we both screamed, we ran back to my place as soon as possible but the thing just kept following us, when I got home I noticed my friend wasn’t with me, where did she go……..

6 traits of writing, reading like a writer


Today we learnt about reading like a writer. Reading like a writer is when your reading, you look for certain techniques and look for the 6 traits of writing which is the ideas in the story, the organization,word choice, sentence fluency, conventions and voice,

Three techniques I have learnt and that I would use in the future with my writing is using long sentences if I wanted my story to sound fast and exciting. I would also use the technique of using short sentences as well if I wanted to write a calm piece of writing.

Last of all I would use the laying out of my writing which is changing my punctuation and grammar so I can make my writing loud and exciting or calm and quiet. In our application we used our literacy circles book which my book was Gilbert ghost train, to find the 6 traits of writing in a section of our choice, this is what I came up with:

Idea: talking about Martin’s family and Dally having leukemia

organization: proper introduction

voice: calm and soft

sentence fluency: the sentences are short, calm and descriptive

conventions: the grammar and punctuation is used quiet often in the start

Math mate sheet 5 question 23


Predict:I predict this will be a problem solving question with dividing.

Read:I think of a number, divide it by 2 and then add 12. If the result is 20 what was the original number

Clarify: nothing to clarify

Big question: think of a number divide 2 and add 20

Mathematicians toolbox: Work backwards, I have a similar problem

Solve: I solved this by working backwards and knowing that 12 plus 8 equals 20

summary: This was about problem solving and working backwards
