5/6 Soccer Gala Day

We all had a great time at Perth football ground,

When we first got there, there was a abundance of people that were participating, we then put on our soccer gear and was told which ground we played on. There were 5 schools including us the teams were split into, boys team 1, boys team 2 , girls team 1, girls team 2 and mix team. We all tried our best and had fun, some people slipped in puddles and some of us were undefeated. Only one team lost so we all tried our hardest it was a fun day for everyone that participated.

Agfest

On Thursday the 5th of May we went to Agfest. Once we arrived we got into our groups then we headed off with our adult. Most of us won prizes for participation and some some people were on the Southern Cross news that night. After a while we stopped and had lunch, most of us bought our lunch. Also everyone got some free things. I saw a 2016 Ford GT Mustang at the Jackson Ford Motor Company site. Ty, Alex. I saw the Flying Doctors service. Eve and I did a colouring in competition. We also saw the dummy in the plane. It could draw blood , cough and could blink.

It was a great day at Agfest! I hope we get to go next year.

Murphy’s Visit

Murphy, Wills dog came to visit the class on Tuesday. He is fluffy, cuddly, playful and bites a lot. He likes everyone in the class. He is so small and he snores when he sleeps. Murphy runs around, he jumps around and he likes watching Will play video games.

Pink Stumps Day

On Friday the 11th of March our school hosted a Pink Stumps Day. Pink Stumps Day is where you wear pink and raise money to support the McGrath Foundation. The McGrath foundation is a Breast Cancer Support. They raise money to employ more breast care nurses for women recovering from breast cancer. Our School supported it by wearing pink and having a Staff v Students cricket match and Cricket based activities. This year we raised $460.06 which means we beat the amount we raised last year ($317)! Thankyou to everyone who helped out with organising Pink Stumps day. A special thank you to Mr Tantari for the cricket activities, the Grade 6 Daily Fitness Leaders for the running of the activities and to Mrs Farran for organising the whole day. Also a huge thankyou to everyone who supported such and important cause by wearing pink and making a donation.

Harmony Day

Monday the 21st of March was Harmony Day. Harmony Day is a day to celebrate cultural diversity.  It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Yesterday our class celebrated the day by sharing things about the different cultures within our class. Isabel, Bree, Bianca, Eason, Eve and Shaykira brought in items for our class and shared with us stories about their families and culture.

As a part of our celebrations we enjoyed trying some homemade traditional foods, looking at artwork, different dances, and currency and learning how to crochet and speak in Chinese, Spanish and Filipino.

Thank you to Eason’s family for making our class dumplings (Chinese), Bianca’s family for cooking Chicken Adobo with rice (Philippines) and Isabel’s family for cooking Empanadas (Chilli). All of the food we had to try was delicious. Thank you to Eve’s gran for teaching us how to crochet too.

It was a fun day learning about different cultures.

Our Story Performance

IMG_8104 IMG_8101 IMG_8102

On Tuesday the 1st of March we had a performance called Our Story. We learnt about the history of Australia in a fun way, including comedy, tricks and jokes. The names of the people who performed  were The Professor and Neville. Neville was quite funny and he was acting like a baby, the professor was funny and serious at the same time. We learnt all about the history of Australia and all about how aboriginal people, women and people that didn’t own land weren’t aloud to vote. We also learnt a bit about the First Fleet and the Gold Rush. In the gold rush people from all over the world came to Australia to dig for gold and because of that now there are people that live in Australia from over 200 different countries. We enjoyed that performance it was funny and educational. At the end they answered some questions and someone asked the Professor to do a head stand and he did it and everyone started laughing at him.
