In maths I am really getting better at my times tables. I am more confident at maths now then at the start of the term. I learnt how to do much more things then before. I can do maths really easy now.

Music In music I now know how to act, sing and dance better. We had a school concert we had lots of songs to learn. My favourite song was the locomotion. Just the girls in my grade did it. The concert was so fun. At school I do piano. I do piano with a girl called Sarah she is in grade 6. I have a piano concert on soon and for it I am playing a song called up on the house top.

My Personal Reflections
Health & Physical Education In P.E we had a swimming education were we went to Mentone Grammerâ€™s swimming pool to do swimming lessons. I was in a group where me and Asmita were the only grade threes. My swimming teachers name was Charlotte. She was really nice. The other day we had the beep test. I got up to 6.4 but last time I got 8.2. I love P.E.

Learning by Doing
Media Roadshow On the 14th /15th of March we did a Media Roadshow. The grade 3 to 4s all did it. In the back ground of Charlotteâ€™s green screen there was music. In the back ground of mine there was a vegemite jar and a vegemite tube .It felt like I was on TV
Learning By Doing This term we had a woodwork incursion about making cranes for our Simple Machines unit.
I really liked the cabins because I got to sleep on the top bunk and I donâ€™t have a bunk bed at home. I really liked the farm.
