Me and George were in the cross country and we were running 3km. We were running all the older kids at school.

We were around 2km into the cross country and we were trying our hardest to beat as many people as we could we were 4th and 5th and we were only about 10m away from the top 3 but we tried our hardest.

I brought up a conversation with George “Although we ran quickly, we were still not making enough progress…” He agreed, but we knew races were not all about winning, it is about how hard you try.

Holidays Reading Reflection


On the holidays I read a few articles about my intrests.

The stuff I read was about Shrek, Donkey and Eminem. I read about the origins of the characters, ad the life of Eminem. Did you know, Shrek was original from a book in 1990 called Shrek! and from there we have got 4 Shrek movies with a 5th coming out next year.

I also found out about the life of Eminem and his childhood and how he got famous.

My opinion is that these articles were useful because they taught me alot about the topic I wanted to know about.

The evidence I have is that I learnt that Shrek came a book and Eminem was put in a coma for a week when he was only 9 and I never knew that.

Goals Check Up


What I want to learn:

I want to learn about writing more professional stories and by the end of the term I want to be able to make my longest story yet. (My longest story was over 1300 words.) I also want to learn about enjoying my reading because at the moment I don’t like doing it.

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

I can use the writing process to help with my writing.

I can read about my intrests

How I learn and behave:

I want to be engaged with the work and not act like a couch potato. I want to be kind and helpful to my fellow classmates.

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

Put more effort into my work and learning. Be helpful and use the school values to meet my goals.

Goals Check Up: I think I was able to control my emotions better this term than most of the time. I think I could still make my emotions more positive and I think that this term I can realise how bad a situation is when I really need to and sometimes I should think, Is this situation bad enough to get a tantrum over?

I think my reading and writing could be improved and I should work a bit more on homework when needed. 

I think I can improve on my goals this term by being more flexible with negative emotions and always try to be positive even if something goes wrong. So far I think I did well with this goal and showed that I was a more kind and friendlier person than people made me out to be.

I think with reading and writing I may of actually decreased my state of them. I could maybe read a bit more and try harder during my reading and writing sessions by listening to the teacher more, getting more engaged with what I am reading, EG. Read about what I like, and for my writing I think I can do more with putting more effort in my personal writing and not getting distracted by my fellow friends and classmates unless it is necessary. 

I think I have worked well on my behavior and have achieved more than I expected. 

I think I have to achieve more with my reading and writing and have not achieved too much. 


Prime Minster Infographic


We have been learning about the Australian Government, My particular Infographic is all about our Prime Minister’s.

I tried to structure my paragraphs carefully so people can read it in a fun and simple way. I think I kind of succeeded but I think there is always room for improvement.

In my Infographic I tried to make sure everything was corresponding with what section I was writing about. I tried to make sure nothing was too hard to read and I tried to make it as custom as possible. and I think I succeeded in that.


BTN History Of Voting


Facts: 1. Back in the 1800’s ladies were not aloud to vote, men thought they were to emotional to have a say.

2. Indigenous Australians were not aloud to vote in federal elections until 1949 and that was for only the ones that served in the army. It was only in 1962 when all the people were aloud to vote.

3. Up until 1973 voting in Australia was a responsibility for people 21 and over. 

Questions: 1. Why were people so cruel back in the 1800’s and early 1900’s

2. Why do a lot of people not appreciate what they got after what everyone fought for the rights to vote?

Understanding: I understand that up until 1962 lots of people were left out from voting and even until 1973 you had to be 21 to vote. Now people thing we should have 16 and 17 year olds vote now, only time will tell what will happen.

Goal: Experiment with new words

I was coming home from a long day of school, trying to find my dad so I could talk to him. My mum was not home, nor was my dad either…

I saw the unlocked door leading to the backyard, I see if my dad is in the garage and he was not there, then I heard a familiar voice. “Hey I am stuck up here!” all I could see was my dad on the roof. “But how you get up there?” I ask. He explains what happens and tells me that he was working on the roof and the ladder fell. I picked up the ladder and he got down safely.

Result: 112 Words (I tried)

Voting age BTN


Facts: 1. At the age of 16 you can apply for a lot of things and some can help with the Australian Government

2. You need to be 18 to vote in Australia. Some people think it should be 16.

3. Bill Shorten thinks if 16, 17 year olds can vote, then it will get them into politics in future.

Questions: 1. Why would they let 16 year olds vote if they know they are not the most reliable people?

2. Will this law come into place any time soon?

An Understanding I had was that Bill Shorten is very careful with what he does
