The moon

Term 1 Space In term one we were learning about space. I really liked it because it was really interesting and it was fun. I learnt things like: that Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, there is only one star in our solar system and that is the sun and Pluto used to be a Planet but then the scientists thought it was too small so they changed it to a dwarf planet.

Term 2 Melbourne ď‚š My Melbourne brochure ď‚š My Timeline of Melbourne history In term 2 we learnt about Melbourne. I really enjoyed it because liked learning some history about Melbourne. We had to do a presentation of Melbourne history and we did a tour brochure around Melbourne. I learnt that John Batman and John Pascoe Fawkner discovered Melbourne, Melbourne was declared a city by Queen Victoria in 1847, the first Melbourne cup was held in 1861 and that the Wurrendjuri people were the first people to live in Melbourne.

Term 3 Government In term 3 we learnt about government. I really enjoyed learning about government and it was really fun. My favourite thing about government was when we went to parliament house. I learnt that the rooms in parliamrnt house are: Legislative, Assembly and Legeslitive council.

Term 4 Global Concerns

ď‚š In term 4 we learnt about global concerns. This topic was probably my favourite. I really enjoyed learning about all of the global concerns in the world. For my global concerns topic at school, I chose whaling. I chose whaling because I care about saving the whales and am very against killing the whales. I really enjoyed the homeless sleepover. It was really fun and it was a cool experience sleeping in a box outside. We really got to know how the homeless people feel every day.

ď‚š In term 1 we went to the cosmodome. The cosmodome was really fun and interesting because I learnt a lot about space and the night sky like all of the constellations in the sky and we learnt a lot about stars and planets.

State Library and Yarra Cruise  In term 2 we went to the state library and on the yarra cruise.  The state library was really interesting. There weren't just a lot of books in there there was a lot of interesting facts about Melbourne history like about the aborigines' and about Ned Kelly.  The Yarra cruise was really fun because we got to have a ride on the Yarra river river and look at it from a different perspective.

Bike Ed

 I really enjoyed doing Bike ed this year. I liked it because we got to ride on the road and we went for a 20 km bike ride and we havn’t done that in Bike ed before. I learnt a lot and it was fun.

Swimming Carnival ď‚š I really liked the swimming carnival because I liked swimming. I only did two events they were backstroke and freestyle but it was still fun. In freestyle I came second and in backstroke I came third. The house that won the swimming carnival was Red house.

Cross Country

 In term 2 we did cross country. This year we had to do 3km instead of two so we did three laps of Cheltenham Park. I came eighth out of 22 people. I was meant to go to districts but I didn’t because I had a soar foot.

5/6 Sport In interschool sport it has been really fun. I played in the cricket team with some of the grade fives. We played in the lightning premiership and we won every game but we got disqualified because our team had mostly boys and we were playing in the girls league. In winter I played in the mixed netball team. The only other boys in the team were Sam and Dan.S. We went to the lightning premier ship and we won every game except on against O.L.A but they were a really good team. We came second overall but we had a great time.
