This movie shows the work we have been doing in class during October and November. I am sorry that if you are in China you wont be able to watch it without a VPN as it is loaded on youtube.
We have been learning how to read for information, to take notes, and to write a report in organised paragraphs. We have been trying to write topic sentences, open with a hook, write complex and compound sentences, write about feelings and opinions and use effective verbs. Can you find any of these targets in our writing?
Some of us started with a number like 3.5 and doubled and doubled using a calculator. We kept our numbers to 2 decimal places. Some of stated with a number like 10,000 and halved until we got to 1 decimal places.
We watched a brainpop movie about the earth and why we get volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. Then we made some models of the earth and labelled the core, mantle and crust.
We can't show you our faces so we all turned around! We also talked about how these would all weigh about 1/4 the weight on the moon because of less gravity!
Everyone has their favorite food,and me.Oh me,my favorite food is sour straw berry sweets.
At tea,I only get two stripes,it's so unfair!
At night,i could'nt sleep,I was thinking about sour strawberry sweets,
I will just look at it,I thought,I won't eat any.
So,i crept out of bed,then into the kichen,open the cupboard,oh there it is! WEEEYAAAA!
From here I could see a few sweet crumbs on the side,so I poked on them,then into my mouth. WEEEYAAA!
Now I can't stop,I just keep eating! Om on om om om.
I look in the bag for more,oh no! I ate all of them,mom and dad will be furious!
I know! I will throw the rubbish bag I the bin and that will do it.
Two minutes later,I was in bed.
The next day,mum asked"Have you been eating sweets?"then there's a long silence
"But how did you know?"
"you left some crumbs on the floor," mum said,"you won't have candy for a year!"
next time we have sweets,I hope she will forget it,
do you think she will?
