Last term we did a project called T.E.D. T.E.D is this thing where people go and make a talk about something that motivates the audience or it is something personal to the person who made the talk or story clip.
The process of making a T.E.D story clip is first you have to have an idea or topic that’s personal or that you can make a connection to. Then you have to write a script and record it. and then you add pictures to match your words.
I learnt how to make a story clip and record your own voice over using the podcaster.
I enjoyed getting photos to put into my story clip and recording my voice over. I also enjoyed at the end, watching the finished product.
The most challenging part of T.E.D was coming up with an idea to do my T.E.D about. I ended doing it about aiming high and setting goals for yourself.
The advice I would give to the next yrs yr 6s I would probably give them the advice to if you can’t come up with an idea, just think of something you love and find something from there.

This term we are doing a project called #AMAZE_THEM, not #AMAZE_US, which is our motto. The basic idea for this project is we have to do something that will AMAZE our local community like our local sporting clubs or local supermarkets. We also watched a video about this girl called Kati, and when she was in grade 1 and she had a class project to grow a cabbage, and it grew so big that she didn’t know what to do with it, so she gave it to a soup kitchen that made cabbage soup and it fed 270 homeless people. From there she started a garden where she grew fruits and vegetables and gave them to the homeless. She named her garden “Katie’s Krops”.
So that’s sort of what we need to do. Maybe not something as big as that, but something that amazes our local community
I don’t have an idea…….YET
Thanks, Cassidy Bradshaw
The book I’m writing about is ” Sally Pearson, Believe” and it is a biography that tells you about how she got to the Olympics.
The message of this book is persistence and believing in yourself. I think she wrote it so people would start believing in themselves.
It’s about where she grew up and how she wanted to get to the Olympics and she kept persisting and she didn’t give up. It is one of my favorite books ever nad I still read it over and over again.
At the moment I’m reading Ruby Redfort: Face Your Fear. This is the forth book in this series. I have really enjoyed reading this series. This book is about a girl who is asked to be part of a secret agency called Spectrum. Spectrum is like a spy agency and Ruby has to go on missions and solve them
My reading goals for this term are to read more every night and the genre I would like to try are war stories , because I always read the same things and I need to read different things.
