In maths this week we have been working a bit on algebra. We have done function machines were what goes in is X and what comes out is Y, I will give you an example of the function machines X is 2 then Y is 4 X is 5 then Y is 10 X is 4 then Y is 8 so if X is 3 what is Y
In English this week for writing I have been researching and collecting information about whales. a few of the facts I have collected are: The scientific name for the killer whale is Orcinus Orca. The killer whale was once called “whale killer” by sailors who saw it attacking whales. Over time, the name was reversed. The killer whale is also known as sword whale, assassin whale and blackfish.
we have also started the second book of hatchet, it’s called the river, by Gary Paulsen.
This week we went to the zoo. The reason we went to the zoo was to film our SOS save our species project. When we had done a bit of filming I was packing up the DSLR camera that I was using the others left but Mia said she’d wait for me. We saw the way the others went and thought we could catch up so I finished packing the camera up and went down the path we saw them go down but at the end of the path there was about 8 ways we could go and they could of decided to go. So we went back and decided to film our peace to cameras.

Yesterday we had choice day, Choice day is were you get to choose an activity to do for period 3 and 4. These were our choices
We had to number these from 1-8, then the teachers agonized us into groups with people from years 4-6 in one of your preferences. I got sewing, basically we sewed these paper mobiles. I learnt how to use a sewing machine witch was quite fun but not my first preference. We sewed with paper instead of fabric or felt witch was one thing I didn’t really like about this activity but other than that I enjoyed it but we wouldn’t of had enough time to make anything much bigger. Next time I think it would be better if we had more time so we can make something bigger and better.
This week’s Thyme is:
Book Advertisement: Design and write an advertisement for your book. You may choose the type of advertisement – a poster, billboard, or magazine.
here is my poster⤵
It all started with an email to Mrs Stafford from Tracy who is from Tourism Grater Geelong and the Bellarine asking if we could make a promo film for Geelong. I am talking about out term project to make a film with the brief Geelong For Kids By Kids. I will talk you through the process I went through to get to the final product.
Brainstorming – Brainstorming was the first step, was the first step to making my film. We had to Brainstorm about were we would like to go and what we would like to have in our film.
Shotlist – Then we made a shotlist, writing down all the shots we planned on doing.
Production – I was pared up with Emily for the day. We had two excursions to get the footage for our Advertising film project, the first one on Tuesday we went to Supa-Tramp and on Wednesday we went to Torque, at supa-tramp I did the rock climbing and Emily (my partner for the two days) filmed, then she bounced and I filmed.
Culling – Next had to cull a lot of our bad footage and footage with photo bombers. I could only keep ‘Gold Footage’ footage that stands out.
Editing – Then its time to edit. Editing for me took the most time, basically I had to put the videos into corel and add some things like slow motion time laps and reverse. Next add music and not to forget to credit it. Then render it was done 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 😉
My Advertising Film ⤵ ?
In maths we had a maths test. It was the Post test, I talked about pre and post tests in my last learning post. I feel like I did better in the post test but I didn’t get to the problem solving part 🙁 over than that I feel like I have improved
In English I have started a new seed about war. I think I will wright it in letter form, like from a soldier to his mum. I wanted this seed to be really detailed because I feel like it will improve my writing.
In inquiry I am working on my Advertising Film to try to get it as good as I can. It is too fast and has no music and I am yet to do eastern beach so it still has a lot of work but I’m plugging away at it. fingers crossed I will get it done before Friday.

For my second country I did Jamaica.
I enjoyed making my Jamaican pages and adding information as I went, but I forgot my book the weekend 🙁 🙁 🙁 so it was a bit late. Anyway it was a good fun project to do and a nice satisfying result.
In the end it all went well 🙂
In maths this week we were doing revision for the post-test, we have already done the test before but that was the pre-test. The reason we have to do a pre and post test is to see what we have learnt. So in maths I did some revision on my division.
