The Last One

At last,

The day has finally come. This is going to be my last blog post of the year. It’s been such a fun year. I have had such a great time. I have learnt lots of things and can’t wait until I am year 6.

I liked doing making the imovies. I thought that was really fun and I did learn a lot. I thought that was a great idea, making a movie about what we learnt. My group was very successful and I won’t forget it. I also liked talking about maths. About new ways of doing maths. I really liked doing maths this year. I just like doing blog posts in general. I think that it’s good that I tell what I learn.

The challenging things this year are doing Literature circles. It was not fun because every week we need to do a task, 2 postered notes, 2 other things and a meeting. I did not enjoy it at all. One challenging thing that will happen is watching the year 6s leave.

My favourite part was doing maths. I learnt a lot and I liked the lessons of maths. Overall this year has been great and really can wait to be in year 6. I hope we do blogs again next year because I really like it.

And once again,

My Name is Nathan…

I will see you for the last time

Glogster

 

Hello everybody,
Today I am going to talk about glogster. Glogster is an ICT tool 
that we used to present our Literature circle book. We have been 
working on it for 2 weeks. I like glogster because it is so easy to 
use and your projects look good. It was also good because you can 
share your ideas with other people.
Glogster is a tool that you make posters, you can even put videos on 
the poster! What was challenging was that you only had a limited amount
of space. Over all I really like glogster and recommend it to a friend!
Here is My glogster:

The Forest EcoSystem

Hello everybody,

Today I am going to talk about the Forrest Ecosystem. The Forest Eco system is the whole Forest.
Here are somethings I learnt

  • I discovered that the Forrest cover 6.5 percent of the earths surface.
  • Today I learnt that There are 5 layers in a Forrest.
  • The first layer is emergent. That is on top of the canopy.
  • The second layer is the canopy. It is on top of the under-story.
  • The third layer is the under-story. It is on top of the floor.
  • The forth layer is the floor. There is very little sunlight.
  • The fifth layer is the river. It is the last layer.

What is your favourite layer? Please comment.

Thank you all for reading, I hope you enjoyed and I will…

Angles

Hello everybody,

Today I am going to talk about angles. We have been learning about angles for the past 2 weeks. The teachers made a matrix for us to do. On the matrix there are question related to angles. I discovered that if you want to measure a reflex angle you have to measure the smaller angle behind it and take away it by 360.

I was surprised that drawing angles wasn’t that hard as it sounds. I used my time well because I was able to complete it with a bit of help, some people did not complete it.

I thought that there was only 3 angles but there is more than 3. There is acute, right, obtuse, straight, reflex and revolution. An acute is an angle that is less than 90 degrees. A right angle is an angle which is 90 degrees. An obtuse angle is an angle that is more than 90 degrees. A straight angle is exactly 180 degrees. A reflex angle is more than 180 degrees. And a revolution is 360 degrees a full rotation.

What is your favorite angle?, please comment.

The Melbourne Zoo

Hello everybody,

On Monday the 9th of October 2016 all the grade 5’s and 6’s went to the Melbourne Zoo. We went there, because our inquiry topic was on vulnerable, endangered and extinct species. The zoo chose ten species they want to save (the SOS). I discovered that just because the animal is not endangered, doesn’t mean it does not need helping. On Monday I learnt that lots of species are becoming extinct because people want more resources such as palm oil (to get palm oil you need to cut down palm trees and that is where orangutans live). Now I know why animals are becoming extinct so fast. The reason is, people keep doing CHIPPD, C stands for climate change. H stands for habitat loss. I stands for introduced species. P stand for pollution. The other P stands for poaching. And the D stands for disease.

My Term 4 Goals

Hello everybody,
Today I am going to talk about goals! again.
My goal is that I can that I can write and type faster because
I write and type slow.
I can achieve this if I keep typing and writing quickly.
I chose this because I fall behind sometimes when
I type or write.
I think I don’t type quick enough and write fast enough.
I discovered that if I keep typing every single day I can type fast.
I know that if I write every single day I can write faster.

Ceramics

Hello everybody,

In art we have been learning about ceramics. A lady called Cristina came in to teach us about ceramics. I really enjoyed it. I made a cave and something I don’t know. To make ceramics you need to dry clay. Last week we painted them. I used the colors red, yellow and black.

Here is my ceramics:
