easy and works it didn’t take to long to make I mean it was are first try what happens is the moter twist and it affects only one of them but with the rubber band it makes them both move. very simple to make it was exiting to see how we did and it work i learnt that a rubier band makes both of them move
OK this one wasn’t to easy it almost didn’t work but eve saved us

Reading response: You and Me, Murrawee
What did the author and illustrator want us to think about and know from reading this book?
this book is about a girl who takes the same footsteps as an aboriginal child. They did the same things in different time, 200 years apart.
I think the author wanted us to think about the way they did things and then look at the way we do things. We use so much power I never knew that we use so much power we never really took a close look at the river…noticing the things around us.
my first semester at middle school has been interesting because of my teachers and my friends.
my favourite class I had this semester was PE.
in Envrio we had lots of fun but 1 gunnie pig died so did Magnificent the chicken it was sad but when you look after 5 Guinea pigs and 9 or 8 chickens things do get a little out of hand.
one of our projects was a local animal diorama when we pick a local bird or animal then resrech about it I am doing the blue wren also known as the supep fairy wren or fairy wren.
we’re doing a house music competition – my house Pegasus is singing ‘I’m still standing’.
in Enviro we cook every Friday each class takes it in turns to cook with Richard I cooed pizza.
next term we are doing drama I am so existing .
we also do river time where we go drown to the barown river and catch fish shrimp and water bugs.
we had a full on term so I am tired. I can’t wait till drama because it sounds fun I love acting next term is going to be lots of fun but I am going to miss art it was lots of fun
