This term at school my grade (5AH) has been assigned projects every week. We were given a different space topic each week and then had to make something about that topic. Some ideas were a poster, a Prezi, a power-point presentation, a booklet, a diarama ect. On the last project we had three weeks to work on it. Usually we had only one week on each project. The topic was a single planet. So we had to choose a planet to work on. I decided to choose Saturn. There are 8 planets in the Solar System. The order goes Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
I made 7 things to do with Saturn. They are an iBook, a PhotoPeach, a diagram, a diarama, a drawing, a collage and I wrote information in my homework book about Saturn.
I have really enjoyed our Space topic this term. I have learnt heaps. To show you my learning of Saturn I will show you this PhotoPeach I made for my presentation.
Now, it’s time to reveal the colour of the picture. I didn’t get a lot of comments but that’s alright. 2 people guessed it right. The people who guessed it right were Charlotte and Bronte! Congratulations to you two. Click here to look at the post about the competition.
The colour was……

This year I might not publish many posts but I will do a few. My birthday is coming up so just look at my sidebar to see how long it is until my birthday. School is back for me tomorrow!
Are you looking forward to going back to school?
What was your favourite thing you did these school holidays?
Wow! Christmas is here already. I can’t believe it. I have had a great day full of excitement. Christmas is such an exciting time of the year for all children. We wake up early in the morning and run to the lounge room/family room, and there is a room full of presents for you to unwrap.
I was very spoilt this Christmas. I received heaps of presents from family and Santa.
Here is what I got:
Whipple Pastry Design Studio
Total Girl CD
Moshi Monster 3D Headphones
One Direction CD
Monte Carlo DVD
iPod Touch Cover
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel (Book)
And a few more things.
On Christmas Eve we caught up with my dad’s side of the family at our house for tea.
On Christmas Day we had lunch with my mum’s side of the family at my gran and papa’s house for lunch
For these holidays I am having lots of fun. I hope to catch up with a few friends and plan some sleepovers. I also would like to visit the beach because the weather is really improving.
I am starting a new competition for my blog. Most of my friends have competitions on their blog so I thought I should have one to. In this competition you have to guess what colour the picture is. You might think this is easy but it’s not. There’s all types of colours that look the same as others.
I am not putting the attribution on the picture because it will give away what the colour in the picture is. When I reveal what the colour is and the person/people that won, I will put in the attribution.
I had heaps of fun on my holiday but I won’t tell you what I did every day or else it would be a very, very long post.
So instead I will tell you my highlights with information:
Swimming in the swimming pool: There were 3 big swimming pools at the Merlin Beach Resort. There was also a baby pool and a spa. My favourite swimming pool was one with a water slide.
Shopping in Patong: There is this enormous shopping area in Patong that sells anything you need. By the end of our holiday I had bought quite a bit from there.
Going on the Elephant Trek: We rode on an elephant for 1 hour. The elephant my mum and I were on was so slow. She was 59 years old. Facts: Elephants can live up to 120 years old and can drink 250 litres of water a day. The elephant we were on stopped for about 10 minutes because it was that thirsty.
Going on the Phi Phi Island Tour: We went on a speed boat to go to different islands around Phi Phi Island. They were so beautiful. The water was so clear. We went snorkelling and saw a lot of fish. My brother and I had to have life jackets on because it was very deep.
Getting my hair braided: I got my hair braided twice because the first time my braids were coming out. The second time I chose the colours pink, purple and light blue.
Seeing the show FantaSea: FantaSea is a big performance in Phuket. When we saw it the stage was very big and there were heaps of people there. There is magic, elephants doing cool tricks, dancing, singing, fireworks and firecrackers. The fireworks and firecrackers were so loud.
Here is a PhotoPeach of my wonderful holiday:
Have you ever been to Thailand?
Where would you like to visit in the world that you haven’t visited before?
Halloween is an American celebration but some Australians celebrate it . I wouldn’t say I celebrate Halloween but I do enjoy Trick or Treating even though I have only done it once. I do it for the lollies and chocolate but I guess that’s why all the kids do it.
Last year I went Trick or Treating in my neighbourhood with my best friend Millie. We got heaps of lollies and chocolate. I am sad I didn’t get to go this year as I had to play netball and it was quite windy and looked like it was going to rain but it didn’t. We got a few knocks at the door from kids who were Trick or Treating and gave them Milky Ways.

I forgot, I got this idea from Georgia’s Gorgeous Blog. Click here to look at her blog.
4KJ (my class) have been doing a type of poem called Tongue Twisters. Tongue Twisters is where you choose a letter in the alphabet and then make up a few sentences. Most of the words in your sentences have to start with the letter that you have chosen. Usually if you say your sentences fast you usually say them differently. That’s why they are called Tongue Twisters. Click here to find a bit more about them. For my Tongue Twister I was given the letter S.
Here is my Tongue Twister:
Sally’s sister Sophie was silly sometimes. Sally’s sunflowers are sunny from the sun so she called her sunflowers sunny. She went to the store to buy some more sunflowers seeds. Sally had to go to school on the school bus and struggled to get a seat but her super friend saved her a seat.
I hope you liked that. Tongue Twisters don’t really have to make sense all of the time.
Music is a fun hobby for me. I like dancing and singing in my room a lot! I love listening to music. I have got heaps of favourite singers and songs like most people do. My favourite type of genre in music is Pop.
My favourite singers:
Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Guy Sebastian, Birdy.
My favourite songs:
Battle Scars by Guy Sebastian, Skinny Love by Birdy, Live While We’re Young by One Direction, Turn up the Love by Far East Movement featuring Cover Drive, Both of Us by B.o.B. Featuring Taylor Swift
I love the music video Live While We’re Young, it is very funny.
