The Head of Primary says...
2015 can be summed up as a year of innovation, successes and a plethora of activities.
We bid a sad farewell to these members of staff: • Mrs Luyt to the High School as Counsellor • Mr Burger to St George’s • Mrs Hosking to Maputo And welcomed: • Mrs Gunning - Gr 1B • Ms Johnston - Gr 5 Maths and Science • Mrs Deyzel - Gr 6 English & Social Studies • Mrs Naude - Gr 7 English and Social Studies
Don't study to earn. Study to learn. What you learn today Is what you will become tomorrow... Intelligence p that is the g lus character oal of Martin Luth true education. er King Jr
We are constantly in search of meaningful ways to encourage every scholar to believe in their abilities and achieve their fullest potential in all they say and do.
Gr 5 – Gr 7 began the process of setting realistic goals across the areas of academics, sport and culture as well as personality traits and moral values.
Constant refining of this valuable skill for our Grade 4 to Gr 7 scholars
• Private acknowledgement of the Top 20 students of Grade 6 and 7 in reports each trimester • Public acknowledgement of the Top 20 at the first assembly of the new trimester
Prize giving only for Grade 7
Striving for public recognition is not what we should teach children to aim for. It is from this stance that we made the decision to only have Prize Giving for Gr 7. To embody what we at St Paul’s stands for, one of our prestigious awards was given for character. If scholars are trained to set personal goals across every facet of their life and learn skills for self Alone wediscipline can doand soeffective little; study habits, we will have educated a child in totality.
together we can do so much.
Our initiatives took us out of our comfort zone and are still challenged by traditional thinking. TheHelen intrinsicKeller motivation and improvement of scholars speaks volumes. We are a team and I thank our staff for their tireless efforts, our parents for suggestions and support and the scholars who make each day a new adventure. I wish all excellent health, peace, joy and prosperity for 2016.

The space poem
I went to space, To see a race, On Mars, Of cars, Oh no! Saturn, He looks like a lantern, What should we do?
There was a giraffe that was tall, She had a friend, who was small, They loved each other, Like a sister and a brother. They always played together, And they were friends forever.
Cheetahs cheat and eat meat Cheetahâ€™s feet are very neat Cheetahs meet on the high way street.

Acrostic poem about spring
Swimming in the sun on a Saturday Picnicking in the sun Rocks and leaves are falling down In spring, leaves are growing Now spring is always good Good leaves are blossoming and spring is a delight.
When he blinked the bird winked, When he smiled the birds gone wild, When he sings the birds all wore rings.
There is a tree in the garden, Her name is Pardon. She has lovely roots with growing seeds, Flowers growing just like sweets. Grass who blossoms into tarts, And a dark old bark which like to act like a dart. Beautiful birds with colourful feathers, Tangling roots who taste like leathers.
Zoe Nott The swimming pool Once upon a time There lived a girl And her name was Pearl. She loved water and loved to be a daughter. She went to the pool and had a duel. So, she slept on a gigantic mushroom, Fell over and ended up in the costume.

Who is your hero and why?
If I could choose a hero I would choose my parents, because they teach me the right from wrong. They are always there for me. I also want to become good parents just like my mom and dad. I would raise my children like my parents and I would teach them right from wrong. I’ll also make the same rules like my mom. I love my parents so much. I don’t know what I would do without them. My parents are my personal heroes. Florette Nakusera
If I won a million dollars I would the following:
Help the poor so they would not struggle. I would make a money tree. I would make an ice-cream pool and invent wings to I could fly. My teacher would receive one thousand dollars and Hilton nine hundred dollars. I would buy a mansion and a television of the size of the classroom. My room would be the size of a hotel and the pool would be in my room with an additional hot tub. Bethany Branch
If I could invent a new toy what kind of toy would I create and why?
If I could create a new toy it will probably be a car and a plane combined with a helicopter. I will play with it every day and every night. I’ll play with it to see how well it will fly because plane wings and helicopter wings are amazing. I’ll have so much fun with it, but I should not crash it. If I’ll crash it I will cry for at least a year or 2. Liam Martin
Is there anyone you would like to switch places with? Who and why?
I don’t want to switch with anyone. The reason I chose it because I like my life. I have more than enough, I have a family and I have food. I have all the things I need, but if I have to I will choose Bethany. I chose Bethany because she is happy and beautiful, hones and most of the time she is happy. She is kind and she is helpful. In sports she is really good an often she is grateful. I really like her for who she is. Milah Malan
If I could invent a new toy what kind of toy would I create and why?
If I could invent a new toy I would invent a chocolate pooping rabbit, because then I can buy if for N$30 dollars. If I got it I would eat chocolate as much as I can, but if I eat too much I would have to go and do sports. But, if I eat too much my whole family would eat too much chocolate. We will all get fat, so gym is the best thing to do when you get the chocolate pooping rabbit. If we don’t gym I will have a fat family forever unless they all decide to go on a diet.

Pick a card.
I took a card that said I must write about why doctors are important. Doctors are important because they can help you when you are sick. They can tell you which medicine to take and which cream to take. Sometimes if you fall and break your arm or leg they can come in an ambulance. They will put you in the ambulance and rush you to the hospital. You will be taken into the theatre and have an operation on your arm or leg. Doctors are very helpful. If you have an accident in your car without a seatbelt, they will help. They can help you with a lot of things. I’m so glad we have doctors, aren’t you? I kind of liked this card. It was fun writing. Joëlle Nuulimba
The card I chose said describe your best friend. Let me tell you about her. My best friend’s name is Angela. She is nine years old. She is a vegetarian. She likes Baby Born and Ever After High.

She has short hair. Her family is a very big family. Her father is in the army. I loved this card. I wish I could get it again. Jamilla Hungamo The card I chose I like because I love my family. I have to choose a best family member. I like my mom because she helps me with my homework. My mom is very kind to others and me. She always has a very big smile on her face. My mom is short with short white hair. She likes to talk a lot. My mom is very helpful to others. I know my mom loves me. I love my mom just like she is. I loved this card. Kyle Allies The card that I chose is school. Why school is important. It is important to go to school to learn. You can learn about space. You can also learn Maths and Phonics. It’s almost like work but only easier. For parents it s very easy. For children it is not so easy. It’s very very important to go to school. Then you can get a proper job. If you don’t get a job, you won’t have any money and no house. I didn’t like the card but it was fun. I wish I hadn’t chosen another card. Philip Jauss

Science Fun Day.
I loved today because we did lots of Science. My favourite was the dancing currants. The ingredients were vinegar, bicarb of soda, a glass of water and a teaspoon. Anna and I were happy because ours was waltzing. My other favourite was racing the boats. To make it, you need water in a bucket, sunlight soap, scissors, cardboard and a pencil. I liked the Science laboratory. Ms Austin and Ms Kuppel were there. Syrah Chamberlain My favourite experiment was the colour changing milk. We used a lot of ingredients to make the milk change colour. We used milk, ear buds, red, blue yellow and green food colouring and bowls. We poured milk into a shallow bowl. Then you need to put in one drop of each food colouring next to each other. Then you take your ear bud and dip it into the milk. Then you take the other side and you dip it in sunlight liquid. Then you put it in the milk and then the food colouring starts to move around. Zahra Latif
My favourite experiment was the dancing currants. The ingredients were water, vinegar, bicarb of soda, teaspoons, a glass and some currants. First pour some water into the glass. Then put bicarb of soda in. After you put bicarb in, take a teaspoon of vinegar, then put the currants in. Soon you will see that the currants are dancing. The class did three experiments. After the experiments we went down to the high school to see some more experiments. The experiments were amazing, some changed colours, one even made a huge noise. Today I had fun! Anassa Jordani

Where to live – mountain, seaside or moon?
I want a house right next to the sea because I could go surfing. It will be a double storey house. It will have a big aquarium in my room. The sitting room will have a pool and the yard will have a big castle for me to go into. I will have a stable to ride a horse on the beach. I will have a helicopter to go sky diving. I will have an ice cream machine. I want to live there because it is very cool and fun. I can go fishing and swimming. I could drive a boat. Zander Schmidt If I had to choose where I had to live it would be the moon because … I could do back flips, front flips and swim because there is no gravity. You can skateboard through the craters.

I would like to live on the moon. Would you like to join me? On the moon, my house would look like a bubble. I chose this house because I would have some oxygen. One reason I would like to live on the moon is that I can touch my roof. I can also sleep on the roof. I could be the best gymnast. I would study the stars. I could draw a star map and send it back to Earth. It would be so quiet to study. I would like to see all the creatures. It could be very dark or it could be red. I could meet some aliens. I love the moon. I hope you want to join me. If yes, then let’s blast off! Anna Beranova

Grade 5A Outing to Etosha Christopher de Jager: We first met our tour guide, Mr. Hein, as everyone called him. We learned to make fire, to survive in the wild and how to make ropes. We had lots of fun doing this. The last thing we did was an obstacle course and my team lost.
us how to identify a male from a female. We also learned the difference between black and white rhinos. Uncle Hein taught us to make a fire and strong ropes. Alicia-Lee Hans: We went on a trip to Etosha. We learned many survival skills. The first day we went on a game drive in the National Park. There we learned about different plant species. The following day we went to a place called Giraffe. There we learned how to make a fire and about plants with medical values. That night we learned how to make toilet paper ropes and different knots. When we returned, we demonstrated our different skills in our groups. Mwangala Mukena: Etosha Village is a beautiful place and we had a lot of fun. Uncle Hein showed me some card tricks and he told us a story about the time when he has killed a lion. He took us on a long walk and he has taught us how to make a fire, make different rope knots and a strong toilet paper rope.
Ivan Mueller: We had a lot of fun on our trip to Etosha. Uncle Hein showed us how to make fire and a rope to survive in the wild. We saw many animals and we enjoyed the trip very much.
Kondja-oua Ngairorue: Our trip to Etosha was amazing! We went on a game drive and saw animals like a baby buck, black back jackal, and an elephant crossed the road in front of our car. Mr. Hein and Mr. Chris taught us different rope knots and how to make a strong rope from toilet paper. They showed us the Southern Cross and how to use it to determine true south. The most amazing was to learn how to make a fire using different techniques. We came back to school and applied all our new skills. It was much fun. Jonathan Strauss: On our Etosha trip we learned how to make a fire in different ways. We also made toilet paper ropes and we went on a game drive. We saw lots of animals like zebras and rhinos. I stayed in a tent with Ivan and Gert and we had lots of fun.
Airi Shirata: On our trip to Etosha Village we learned a lot of things like how to make a fire without a match, how to tie survival knots and how to make a strong rope from toilet paper. Uncle Hein is a very strong man. He had a fight with ostriches and he survived with only a scratch. The most awesome event was the obstacle course. We also saw a baby rhino and his mother. Tonia Karume: On our trip to Etosha we went on a game drive. We saw some elephants and Uncle Hein taught
Nependa Uremena: We went to Etosha for two days. When we arrived there we had lunch and then we went on a game drive. We saw springbuck, jackal, impala, ostrich, elephant, giraffe and rhino. The next day we went to the Giraffe camp where we learned to make a fire and skills that we can use in the wild. Charl Malan: We went to Etosha for our Gr.5 cultural outing. There we learned many valuable skills. We learned to make a strong rope from toilet paper, and how to make different
rope knots. The different ways to make a fire was truly educational. We loved the food and the different activities. It was great to meet Mr. Hein who taught us all these wonderful things. It was an amazing experience. Jack Parker: The trip was an excellent way to learn how to survive in the wild with limited resources. Everything that we wanted to use, we had to find or to make ourselves. We enjoyed the game drive, the obstacle course and the food.
using the stars. We also saw a sundial and how to use it. The bushman told us about the different trees and their uses. We learned how to make a strong rope from toilet paper and some rope knots. After we returned we demonstrated all our new skills in class. Stasia Steenkamp: What we learned many ways of making fire on our Etosha trip. We learned three different knots with ropes: the reef knot, bow line and thief knots. We also learned the difference between trees and bushes. The best part was to learn how to work together as a group. We enjoyed the trip very much. Thank you Mr.Hein Vosloo. Nathan Shave: At Etosha Village we learned some new things. Mr. Hein Vosloo taught us four ways to make a fire and three different knots: the reef, thief and bowline knots. We also learned how to make a strong rope from toilet paper. We enjoyed the trip and had a lot of fun.
Keith Mutandi: Etosha is an interesting place. We had lots of fun while we were there. It is a place for both children and adults. My trip was the best trip that I have ever had. We learned how to find direction during the day as well as at night. We were taught fire making skills and how to make a strong rope and different rope knots. Etosha National Park is a beautiful and an amazing place to visit. Danielle Motinga: We learned to work together as a team and to always help each other. Uncle Hein showed us how to navigate using the stars and how to make a fire. We made strong ropes from toilet paper and we made different rope knots. When we returned to school, we had to demonstrate all our new skills to Mrs. Rall in class. It was great fun.
Dominique Clayton: On our trip to Etosha we were taught many things. We learned to tie three different rope knots. We also have learned to make a fire in different ways. One of them was the Namibian way. We had to use a double battery and steel wool. When we put them against each other they lit up a spark. We learned to survive in the wild and on the game drive we saw many animals. We had a lot of fun and it was an awesome trip. Lara Backhaus: On the Etosha trip we learned to make a fire in many different ways. We also learned how to track water using animal footprints. We learned to find our direction at night
Caitlin Gillies: When we arrived at the Etosha Village, we went to our tents, dressed warm and then we went on a game drive. We saw a baby black rhino and his mother, kudu, giraffe and zebra. I shared a tent with Azaylee, Stasia and Jaime. The next day Uncle Hein showed us how to make a fire and a strong rope. We enjoyed the different rope knots and worked together as a team. We were transported on a truck called “the Elephant” and visited a camp called “the Giraffe.” We enjoyed the obstacle course and the Bushmen showed us different trees. Romy Pereira: On our trip we learned many different things. How to make a fire in different ways, how to tie ropes using various knots and how to make strong ropes out of toilet paper. The Bushman showed us different trees and their uses. Uncle Hein showed us how to determine direction by using the stars. Back at Windhoek, we demonstrated all our new skills. We enjoyed the group work.
Jaime Henckert: At the Etosha Village we did an obstacle course. I was in a team with Kondja, Romy and Danielle. First we had to open five gates, next we had to build a puzzle, which Romy did. Kondja had to shoot a hay stack and we had to walk on a plank. We learned to work as a team and that one always has to listen to one another’s ideas. It was a wonderful trip. Azaylee Philander: We went to the Etosha Village and we had a lot of fun. Uncle Hein Vosloo taught us how to make a fire and how to make difficult rope knots. We played a memory game which we enjoyed very much. We went on a game drive and we saw a big bird’s nest, rhinos, jackal and giraffes. The rhino was a black rhino and it had a baby. I also saw an elephant for the first time. Gina Olles: On our Etosha trip I enjoyed the fire making and the rope games. We went on a long walk to the secret hide out. We saw many animals like elephants, springbuck, kudu, ostrich, and rhinos. Uncle Hein was an awesome tour guide and I loved the trip. Gerhardus Gerber: When we went to Etosha I have stayed in a tent with my friends. We went on a game drive and saw many animals like, elephants, jackal and rhinos. Uncle Hein has taught us how to make rope knots and fire.
I chose meerkats because meerkats are interesting. The way they stand and the babies are cute and their unity as they also stand as one like my family. Soil is important because a meerkat needs meat and animals eat plants and plants need soil. Therefore, all of these lead to one thing – soil. My experience of the project was good. I learned a lot. We must give a big thank you to Ms Johnston.
I chose a hyena because it reminds me of my childhood. Soil is important to the hyena because it protects its pups. I learn that the Brown hyena uses soil and eats eggs.
For my Science project, I chose the Ground squirrel. Soil is important to the Ground squirrel because it lives in a hole and the name of the hole is a barrow. The experience I had was amazing. I enjoyed speaking in front of the class but luckily I was not on my own. I was with my friend, Romy. While Romy and I were doing the project we wanted to call the Ground Squirrel,“Azaylee”. Thank you for reading it.
I chose a porcupine because it is a fascinating creature. Not only is it a fascinating creature, it is beautiful. My favourite part of a porcupine is when its quills rise and it can shoot without fighting with the anotheranimal. My experience was that porcupines can defend themselves.
I chose a Ground squirrel. The reason why I chose a Ground squirrel is because it is a very interesting and cute animal. It uses soil to make barrows and to hibernate for 250 days. My experience of the project was that doing this project taught me a lot about a Ground squirrel.
I chose a porcupine. The reason why I chose porcupines is because I think that porcupines are such interesting creatures. I like the way porcupines protect themselves because it is just wonderful. Soil is important to this animal because they live in soil and they find some of their food from soil. They need food to live. My experience of the project was wonderful because we had lots of fun and I did my project with my friend which was extremely exciting.
I chose the Swallow for my project because I thought that no one would choose it. The bird, Swallow is a very interesting mammal because other birds make nests with twigs, leaves and strings of grass. Swallows are different because they make their nests out of sand and mud and adda bit of grass and twigs, but mainly sand. That is how the Swallow uses soil. Soil is very important for their environment. They also need soil because they eat bugs and flying insects that live in the grass. Grass needs soil to grow. The Swallow can be remembered or recognized by its fork tail. People also say that the Swallow represents luck.
I chose meerkats because they seem like really interesting animals and I wanted to learn more about them. Soil is important to meerkats because it provides them with homes, food and look-out points. In other words, meerkats could not survive without soil. I enjoyed this presentation because I learned more about animals in which I have a lot of interest.
A e5 d a Gr cts e j pro
I chose a warthog because it looked interesting and I wanted to tell my class about its fun and awesome facts. Soil is important to a Warthog because it uses soil to make burrows. It also uses soil to live in and a Warthog eats the earthworms in the soil. Warthogs are actually so much fun and interesting animals. My experience was that the project was a little easy, but also difficult.
I chose the golden mole because it is an incredibly cute and beautiful animal and it is one of my favourite animals. Soil is the moleâ€™s home because it protects the mole from danger and moles dig their homes in the soil. I learned new and interesting things and I liked it.
I chose the hyena because I think the hyena is an interesting animal. Soil is important to the hyena because it digs holes to sleep in and to ambush other animals. My experience of this project was that it was fun learning about the hyena.
I chose a meerkat for my Science project because I found it very interesting how they use soil to build burrows that protect and keep them warm and cool. They also use the soil to find insects. Making the project did take a while but I managed to pull it off. While I was researching, I learned a lot about meerkats and how they live. I am happy knowing that I worked hard.
I chose the warthog because it looked really interesting and I wanted to learn more about it. At first I thought it was ugly and it smelt really bad. But I learned quite a lot about it. The warthog is a clever, lazy animal. The warthogsuse soil to build their burrows and they use it (like mud) to cool off when it is hot, they also use it to find bugs and food to eat. I learned a lot about Warthogs and they are interesting animals. My experience of the project was that it was fun. I did the project with Azaylee.
Christopher de Jager
I chose a Barn Swallow because I thought it would be interesting to know about the Barn Swallow and how it uses soil. Soil is important to the Barn Swallow because it uses the soil to make a nest out of it. My experience of this project was that soil is worth a lot to animals and also to all the people in the world. It provides food for animals and humans.
I chose a hyena because I wanted to learn more about hyenas. Soil is important to hyenas to give them grip when running, to catch prey and also to find food. Hyenas are very interesting animals and I would like to learn even more about them. My experience of the Science project was great. One day I would like to see a Hyena and if I can, it would be wonderful.
I chose the porcupine because I really wanted to find out more about the porcupine. How is soil important to this animal, I asked myself? The answer was, that porcupines use soil for their homes and to help the eco-system. My experience with this project was that it was really fun, I discovered new things, which I never knew before.
I chose an antlion because it sounded like a good and interesting animal. Soil is important to an antlion to sleep in and to catch food. I learned a lot by completing the project.
I chose the porcupine, because it is dangerous and very interesting. A porcupine uses soil to live in and its food is grown in soil as well. I was confident and it was very easy, but I thought I could do improve.
I chose a porcupine because I wanted to know how a porcupine uses soil. My experience of the project isthat it was fun talking to the whole class.
Kondja-oua Ngairorue Jack Parker
I chose a Bat-eared fox. The reason I chose this animal was because I thought it was a normal fox which I saw in Europe, but it was revealed as the one found in Africa. A Bateared fox needs soil to make homes for breeding and shelter. I enjoyed this project because I learned about an animal that I did not know much about before.
For my Science project I chose a warthog. I chose this animal because I thought it was an interesting animal to research and talk about to the class. Soil is important to this animal because it makes its holes in the soil. I had an amazing time doing this. Thank you miss Johnston for being one of the best teachers.

I chose the Golden mole for my project because it is so cute, they have very sensitive hearing and are also very clever. Soil is important to a Golden mole because it needs soil to live in and also that it is able to know where they are going. My experience was that I could learn more about my animal that I chose.
I chose the aardvark because it uses soil in everything it does. It is also a fascinating creature. This animal uses soil for food, shelter and protection. My experience of this project was that it was fun and easy. I did my project two weeks earlier so it was not too rushed. My mom helped me with some things. When I was doing my oral, I was a little bit scared. I hoped that I would do well. Afterwards I left very confident.
I chose a mole because nobody wanted to choose it yet a mole is such an amazing animal. I wanted to learn about its life and how it adapts in nature. Soil is important to moles because they use it to build their homes and without soil they can not have a home. My experience of the project was great. I had so much fun doing it and it was an amazing experience doing the project.
I chose a warthog because it has a lot of uses of soil and it is a funny pig. Soil is useful to a warthog because it needs to dig holes for its home. I think it is fun discovering facts about animals and it is wonderful doing a project on the warthog.
We are Grade 5B
I did a project on warthogs and soil is important to them because they use soil for their homes. Another thing is that they eat roots that come from soil and they kneel down on their front legs because they need to drink water. I thought it was tough to complete the project because we were at Erindi trying to take action photos, but I did manage to take one. Then we find posters and pictures and we started to practice for the presentation. I did well.
I chose a meerkat for my Science project. Soil is important to meerkats because they use soil to make their homes, for sleeping and also for escaping tunnels. Soil protects them from predators. For me the project was the best. My friend and I could have done a little bit better, but we did well overall.
I chose the springhare. It uses soil as a home. I enjoyed doing the project to apply my creativity and to make the poster. It was interesting to learn about the springhare, its habitat, behaviour, how it uses soil and what it eats.
5B e d Gra ects j pro
The animal I chose was the meerkat. The meerkat uses soil for its homes and to stand on to see if predators are coming. They do not like jungles because they cannot see if predators are coming. I enjoyed the project because I learned a lot about the meerkat and it is my mom’s favourite animal.
I chose the Bat-eared fox because it is an interesting animal and also because of its beauty, speed and intelligence. Looking for the information and uses of soil was not as difficult to find, but preparing the board, finding pictures and retyping was not easy. Luckily I was able to finish my project.
I chose the Antlion and it uses soil as a home and gets its food from the soil. I also chose the Antlion because I wanted to learn about one of the small five. I liked making my poster because I had information on it already so all I did was put everything together.
Katelyn du Plessis Léa Oriol I chose the porcupine for my Science project. Soil is important for the porcupine for food, homes and for their young. I thought it was fantastic to do the project. It was fun and I learned a lot.
I chose a Bat-eared fox, but many people chose this animal. I chose the Bat-eared fox because I was curious about its big ears. Soil is a very big part of this animal’s life, it is where it lives and traps its food. A lot of Bat-eared foxes love to dig and theyeat insects so it is easy to catch the insects when they live underground. My experience doing this project is that it was a bit stressful but interesting and I learned about an animal.
My animal that I chose for the Science project was the porcupine. I wanted to choose this animal because it is an animal that is very interesting, for example, it does not shoot out its quills, it is a myth and also that their quills are dependent on their age or species. They use soil when they dig burrows or when they look for roots in the ground. The project was interesting and a bit difficult for me.
I chose moles because they are mostly in the ground. Soil is important to moles because they need soil to make their homes or tunnels. They also need soil to find their food (insects) because there are more insects underground. This project was a lovely experience and I learned more information on moles and other animals from my friends’ projects.
I picked a Ground squirrel for my Science project. They need soil to store their food. Ground squirrels live, raise their babies and sleep underground. Making this project was fun and I learned a lot of things about the Ground Squirrel. It was really fun.
I chose a suricate because I know lots about them. Suricates use soil to build their burrows and to find their prey which are insects. The project was easy because I like the suricate.
We chose a suricate because it sometimes stays in the desert and it sleepsin soil. Young ones stay for two-three weeks in soil and they take their food from soil. So if they do not have soil they don’t have food. Making the poster was alright. I think suricates are great animals, they must not become extinct.
I went with Robbe and we chose the Golden mole. We both thought it was the most beautiful mole. I never know about the Golden mole until Robbe told me about it and what it looks like. We found out that the Golden mole uses oil for keeping their babies and soil is also their home. It was a lot of fun making the poster and we finished in two days.
I chose the Bat-eared fox. They use soil for building their dens. Soil is important to them because they take their food from the insects in the soil. They also use soil to hide from their enemies as they jump into their underground dens. I thought the making of the project was fun.
I chose the Golden mole because it is difficult to find and no one knows about it, except me. A Golden mole needs soil to hide and for protection. My experience in making the project was fun.
I picked a Golden mole. They use soil to make a home and a safe place for their babies, they also use soil to catch insects. When I was working on my project it was easy and I found out that even if it is not the prettiest animal, it is very smart and beautiful on the inside.
I chose a Bat-eared fox because they are so cute and very interesting. Soil is important to them because they use it to stay in and their food is found in the soil. Doing the project was a little bit difficult because I did not have a partner with whom to do it. Through my hard work and my parents’ hard work of buying posters and printing information and pictures, I had a wonderful poster after all.
I chose a Bat-eared fox for my Science project. The Bat-eared fox uses soil, by making their homes, which are burrows, and also use it for their source of food because insects and bugs live underground. I thought this project was fun, but also difficult.
I chose the meerkat. Soil is important to the meerkats because they make burrows and live underground. They raise their babies in their burrows so they are safer from large animals. I picked the meerkat because I wanted to learn more about them. It was fun making the poster and finding the information.
I chose the Bat-eared fox. Soil is important to that animal to make its home and to dig insects to eat. I liked doing the project because it was interesting and my knowledge increased.
I chose a Bat-eared fox for my Science project. They use soil for building their homes, which are burrows, and for their food because termites live in soil. I chose the Bat-eared fox because it is cute and it uses soil. I had fun making this project and it was not so difficult.
We are Grade 6A
Grade 6As design a new school uniform If I could design a new school uniform it would be like the soccer club FC Barcelona’s 2015 to 2016 kit. It would be the full kit with the shirt, shorts and socks. Everybody would also wear indoor soccer boots with no studs. This means that they would already wear their soccer clothes if they go to practice!
If I had to design my own school uniform, I would start with the boys. In summer the boys would wear shorts with a T-shirt and tackies. In winter they would wear long pants, a t-shirt and tackies. The girls’ summer uniform could be short pants or skirts, a shirt and tackies. Remember the tights in winter!
Girls should wear a pink polo shirt and dark and light blue checked skirts with light blue pumps. The boys would wear turquoise shirts and a grey hurly jacket. They would also wear blue shorts and white takkies.
Girls: A sleevless T-shirt with a creamy colour. A choice between short jeans or skirts. In winter we will wear long jeans. Our shoes are black or blue pumps Our hair can be loose or tied. Boys: The boys would wear normal St. Pauls t-shirts with swag pants or sporty pants. They can wear tackies or Tomys.
Grade 6As invent a new school subject I would invent a subject in which we learn a language with words like LOL: laugh out loud, or GTG: got to go. I would invent this, because if you are texting, you need words like these. There are many words used in texting nowadays that are completely new. In this way, even our parents would know what these words mean. Alexander Cartwright My new subject would be called Free Time. Free Time is a period during which students can relax, have a drink and do whatever they would like to do. I would start this subject because children become exhausted after working hard. We would have this subject after PE so that we can relax after running and exercising. Vseteka Pakote My new subject would be named Recap. In Recap we would revise a topic to excel in it further. Recap would be my favourite subject, as it would make us understand a subject so that we can excel. Every teacher would have a recap period for their subject. We can go over terminology, methodology and rules in maths and English and also have discussions and debates in subjects likd history and biology. Recap is already my favourite subject and will soon be everybody’s favourite. Letushila Demas My new subject would be Electronics. In this class everyone would have a seat in a box of their own and that box will be sound proof. Each box will have a fan, a popcorn machine a coke machine and 3D screens. The students get to pick any game console in the world and any games they would like to play. The good thing is the school pays for everything! Basically you play games for a whole period. Krynauw Weber If I were to invent a new school subject, I would invent a subject in which no one needs to write and would use their phones to do their class work and tasks, They would not even need to communicate. If they needed to submit a task, they would employ this modern technology. If they write essays, they would
not use language as we know it, but rather use Phonographic Technology as taught by this subject. Rauha Hanhapo The subject I would invent is called Go-Go Dojo. The classroom will be a go-kart track with forty seven go-carts. Only grades 5 to 7 will have the subject, but every day there would be two lessons. The go-kart track wil be the size of a soccer field, but it would be round. There would be prizes for the first, second and first place. There will be paramedics whenever a class in on. Gero Kirchner If I had to add a subject to the school’s programme, it would be Design. In this class we would design our own clothes which we would then sell on Market Day. Elsie Jacobs
My new subject would be named Animal Education. I always think of animals – how to save them, care for them and love them. A class which educates people about animals is a way to help people understand that animals are just as important as humans. Possible Activities: • 'Save an animal' month • Documentaries • Other interesting videos • vision boards Remember: Just because animals cannot speak, it does not mean we should treat them with less respect. Anoushka Seha
Grade 6As create a class pet and other things My classroom pet would be a wild baboon. Baboons are crazy and they are scavengers, so it does not matter if you feed them oghipundu, kapanna, bread or pizza. They would eat it all. Baboons can mess up the girlsâ€™ hair. I do not worry about getting a baboon in class, because there are some in my class already! Daniel Branch
I would choose a Robotic Dog as my class pet. It would have four leg, scales like fish and legs like a frog. It will be programmed to answer all questions asked. It will be useful, because in math class it will give all the answers to the sums and even in maths tests! Chris Barnard
Healthy food for your lunchbox:
Dried fruits are healthy because they are fruits that are just dried out. If you put lettuce on your sandwich, it will also make it healthy. The nuts and raisins in an energy bar also gives you lots and lots of energy. Nelago Mwatile
My awesome classroom pet would be a small animal that would make you happy when you are sad. When your teacher is too lazy to explain. Something, it would help you understand. It would help you with anything. It would be mixed with a cat, a bush baby and a hamster. It would be called a Hamat. Anneke Eisenberg
If we had a class pet it would probably be a dog. What kind you ask? Well, a Golden Retriever of course! They are smart, you can train them and they are sooo ADORABLE! Our dog could do many things for us like closing the door for us or bringing us the things we need. This dog is not only smart, but also friendly. It will cuddle and help everyone, or even just keep them company. Do you not think these are enough reasons to keep a Golden Retriever as a class pet? Djamila du Plessis
I would like a mythical classroom pet and it would be called a Guinea-Corn. A Guinea-Corn is a mixture of a guinea pig and a unicorn. It is the size of a guinea pig, so it is the perfect size for a classroom pet. It has the body of a guinea pig and the horn of a unicorn. They are usually friendly and enjoy being held and petted. Since they are social , they must have company, so it is best to have two Guinea-Corns. You can feed them vegetables but they prefer candy. They come in the colours red, blue green, pink and purple. They make the perfect pet for children. Warning! They can poke out your eye with their horn if angry. Not suitable for children under ten. Alana Adonis
