Valedictorian speech

The first couple of weeks in prep were nightmares; I didn’t know anybody except for my teacher Leigh. After the first term I finally made some friends James, Finn, Imran, Kallum, Nick and Devlin. As the year went on nothing really happen except for that time Devlin told me to go on the oval and I got in big trouble. On the last day of school in prep I didn’t even realise, so on the Monday I came to school. The end of the year was great I knew most the teachers at this school and most the students in prep.

Not long later year one started, this year was great I had Nicole as my teacher and Beth was next door. Half way through term 1 I already knew everyone in my class and most people in the other classes. This year was the best year so far because this year is the year that I started learning and collaborating more with my class mates and the teachers. Term 3 went really well our topic was ‘Fairy Tales’. We went to the fairy park in Ballarat, this was so fun. We also went to the movies to watch a movie because somebodies parent worked at the cinema. It was now close to the end of the year and the only thing I remembered doing was going to the year 2 sleepover, even though I wasn’t in year 2 I still went and enjoyed the sausage sizzle.

Now year 2 has finally come, Antony was teacher this year, not the teacher I wanted but he was still a great teacher. The only thing I really remember is when we went to the recycling place. That was the smelliest place I’ve been to in my life but that excursion was still good. Now the time has come, ‘Year 2 Sleepover’. Now finally I get to stay there for a night. This was the best felling until year 3 came.

The only thing I liked about year 3 was camp and my teacher Zoya, of course. Zoya was good because she gives us so many lollies. This year’s camp was great because the bus ride wasn’t long; the cabins were good and the dj at the disco, Antony. The end of year was coming but swimming was still in the way. Swimming was great; I had a good teacher, group and class.

Now it’s my second favourite year, I was with Zoya again but this time I had one of the best classes. Devlin, Jules, Tait, Bryn and so much more. There were many highlights this that I can’t even say them all. The first highlight was athletics and swimming, this year was the year that I actually tried at athletics and swimming and it wasn’t too bad. The second highlight was camp, camp Currumbeen.  This was the second best camp because this camp wasn’t so much learning. It was more having fun, that’s why I liked it.

Now it’s finally my senior years at this school and Lee was the perfect teacher to help me start. I had a great class with a lot of my friends like Declan, Luca, Gavin and much more. But the best thing about this year by far was camp, I’ve said camp was the best thing in the past but this camp was too good. We went to Warrnumble and had buffet for dinner that was the best thing by far. I also enjoyed the disco and Bobby’s robot dance as well as the other great dances.

Now the time has finally come year 6, this year is the best year by far because of two things. One, this is my last year and I’m leaving at the end of the year. And two, this year’s class, I had the best class this year because I got most of my friend in this class like Declan, Luka, Cain and much more. That’s why these years the best year ever.

Throughout my time at Moonee Ponds Central School/Moonee Ponds Primary school, I feel everyone has grown from being shy and little to being optimistic and big. I feel these years at this school have really taught me stuff and I’ll take this knowledge on board when I’m at high school.

The 5 big questions: Hugo Cabret

Big question#1: What makes this book good?

The thing that makes this book is how the author(Brian Selznick) creates an interesting scene to kick off the book. This book is also good because it is interesting and it captures the readers attention. This book is also good because of the names the author gives the characters, the names fits the scene. It is also good because the author describes the characters look and feeling.

Big question#2: What would make this book better?

The thing that would make this book better is if it had a little less illustrations and some more words. But other than that  I think theirs nothing to change.

Big question#3: Whats the one most important thing the author wants you to know?

I think in this book  Brian Selznick  really wants you to know that back in those times it was hard for everyone to live. Some didn’t have a home but had a family, and some had a home but no family.

Big question#4: Why did the writer write this book?

I think Brian’s purpose to write this book was to entertain us. I also think he wrote this book to inform us about what it was like back then.

Big Question#5 :  What does the audience need to know to understand enjoy the book?

I think that the audience needs to know the plot of the story to understand the book. I also think the audience needs to know what is happening so far to enjoy the book, because if you don’t know whats happening you wont have an understanding of the book.

Everyday Hugo has been stealing food from the cafe and taking it back to his apartment. Hugo’s dad ran the clocks at the station and since his dead Hugo has been running the clocks ever since.

All Hugo wants is a family and answers to the mechanical man that Hugo’s dad has been working on. Hugo wants a family because everyday he is alone in his little apartment with no one to talk to.

Through out the book Hugo has been finding out answers about the mechanical man. When it comes to the last couple of chapters Hugo has kind of found a family. The family consist of Hugo, the girl he met, the girls grandpa and the girls grandma. But in the end Hugo doesn’t find answers to his father death.

Hugo changes throughout the book because he found answers to all the questions he has. Hugo also changes because he grows up and becomes mature. He also changes because his not shy and pour any more.

Fact number #5: Fiction is all about a world the author creates

The author(Brian Selznick) made Hugo a poor, sad and shy to make the readers interested. The author also set the scene back in old English times so the readers have an idea on what it was like back then.

100WC week 33

Dear world leaders,

 

I strongly believe that Lucy should have an education in Kenya because it’s not fair for her. Lucy may have disabilities but that can’t affect her learning. Lucy has eight brothers and all of them go to school, so why can’t Lucy go to school? Lucy can be like all the other people that have disabilities, hope on a wheel chair and go school. It’s also not fair because when she grows up she will need to get a job, and without an education it will be really difficult for Lucy to find a job.

Behind The News-Bike Licences

In this short video clip it talked about whether we should have bike licences to be able to ride a bike or not. Also in this clip their were two boys that ride to school, their names are Jackson and Alex.  Jackson thinks that if we have bike licences than it would prevent injuries and if you do bad stuff the police can take your licence away from you. But Alex has a totally different opinion, Alex says that if we have bike licences than not as much people will ride a bike, which means there will be more traffic and that will cause pollution.

What do you think?

If you have an opinion than leave a comment.

The road to federation- Time line

This term we learnt about the Australian federation and the different types of governments. We did some activity’s on governments in class , then we went on with a mini project. The mini project was on THE ROAD TO FEDERATION. We had to look at two sites and then take notes. We then had to write an article with our notes. When we finished we had to make a time line using time toast. And here it is.

Here is a link to the actual site!
