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.
Hi everyone! I am going to talk about ‘What I did when I was little.’
I have changed since I was little, everyone does.
I was cheeky when I was little as most children are. I absolutely loved pink but now I love many colours. I can’t choose a favourite. I liked ice-cream birthday cakes (I still do), it shows in the PhotoPeach you will see soon. I used to love shows like Dora, The Fairies, the Disney Princesses, Fifi and heaps more.
I also loved ‘My Little Pony’. I had heaps of ponies, pretend ones. I loved playing with them and pretending they could fly. 🙂 I wasn’t really into Bratz and Barbies and all of those things though. I still played around with them and dressed the dolls up.
I had a Disney Princess Kitchen and used to pretend to cook for someone. I remember making restaurants and going over to my mum and dad to ask them if they wanted anything to eat.
Now that I have told you a bit about what I did when I was little I am going to show you photos of it as well:
What did you do when you were little?
Why do you think you have changed?
Did you like the PhotoPeach? Did you get the question right?
Road safety is very important. Nearly everyday you are on the road. The grade fours at the school I go to do Bike Ed this term. It is all about learning how to ride your bike safely on the road and even the footpath (sidewalk for some people). It is very important to learn these rules so when you get older you know how to be safe.
A lady from the RACV (Royal Automobile Club Victoria) came to the grade fours at the school I go to. She told us all the road safety rules, well at least most of them. It was really interesting to find out all of these rules.
I am going to tell you a few of them she told us:
Always wear a helmet because if you are wearing a helmet you have two things protecting your brain. If you don’t have your helmet on, that’s bad. Your brain is the only thing that can’t heal in your body.
Wear bright coloured clothes when you are riding in the dark.
Wear runners. You wouldn’t see someone in high heels riding their bikes, would you?
Ride with a parent or a parent near you until you are twelve.
Wear a well fitted helmet
Never wear any type of hat under your helmet, your helmet could slide off when you are riding.
Here is a picture of my brother and I on our bikes when we were younger (my brother had my old bike):
