Recently we have been learning about writing different kinds of poems. We started writing Poems about different characters in Stormboy, We looked at poetic devices such as rhyming and rhythm, Line breaks, Stanza’s, Repetition, Imagery, Alliteration and Onomatopoeia. We have found if difficult at times but we are really enjoying it. The easiest is an acrostic poem!
The time to apply for Student Leader is here and if you would like to apply, here are some of the things that you might get to be involved in.
When you become a Student Leader, you attend a training day that teaches you the skills you need to be a leader. It is challenging but it helps you become a confident and proud Student Leader.
Hosting assemblies can be frightening, but as a Student Leader you get to give it a go. Stage fright is ok, but all the attention is on you. And sometime, you even get to write the script yourself!
Student Leaders get to collect House Points from around the school and you might even get to calculate them before announcing them to the school at assembly.
As Student Leaders we were able to attend the ANZAC Day Schools Commemoration at the Melbourne Shrine. And it’s not just ANZAC Day, you will be able to attend many special events outside of school!
Meetings with teachers
You will be expected to attend meetings and to help organise, plan and discuss things among the team throughout the year.
Promoting Events and Activities
As Student Leader you get to create a lot of posters and promotions to promote upcoming events in school like Book Week, Footy Day and others. Fundraising and photographs of the events are also collected by the Student Leader Group.
The Gnome Hunt
Have you participated in the Gnome Hunt? Yes? Well what if we said you could help organise it? That’s right, you will be able to help organise and promote the Gnome Hunt when it happens in 2019!
We hope to see you applying to be a Student Leader in 2019!

During term three we learnt to draw human forms in the shape of superheros. We learnt to draw people using correct proportions design costumes for our superheros using textas and coloured pencils. We think we did an amazing job. Please tell us what you think of our creations.
The last two weeks we have been really interested in Maths and CBL.
In CBL we have been learning about Australia , by using Tour Builder to investigate different states, capital cities and landmarks. It was interesting to explore famous parts of Australia, and know where the landmarks are located.
In maths we have been learning division, it was interesting to learn about remainders. We have the opportunity to choose from a 1 star, 2 star or 3 star task. We have also looked at measurement and finding the area and perimeter of spaces within our school using a Trundle wheel.
Last week we did write on time on google drive for the first time. It was about writing a persuasive letter on why we should or shouldn’t change the school time. It was interesting to use new technology for forming our writing . and . this is going to help prepare us for Naplan next year.
We have started contributing to the lesson planning process with Miss Anderson by giving topics that we are interested in. We planned a session for our buddies that was fun but still involved learning around the school values specifically around teamwork and working together. We feel more involved in being able to contribute to our own learning. Next week for our buddy session we have planned to use technology to help learn about coding.
In Maths we have been learning different ways to solve multiplication like; arrays, distributive property, arithmetic, Japanese multiplication ect. Some people find some strategies easy but others can still be rather challenging.
In CBL this term we are using google drive for out CBL journals. We have looked at different places like national parks, where children sleep, Biomes, the aboriginal map, puzzle map, landscape, Jeanie Baker books. We are interested in exploring Change within Australia.
On Thursday night it was the 3-6 concert. It was a BLAST! Some of us were super nervous before we went on, but once we were on stage we were confidant. Our performance was the song ‘blame it on the boogie’ by the Jacksons. We can not wait for our next concert.
On Friday we had our assembly performance with 4E, all about personal power. We created videos of how to use our positive and negative power to influence others. We also sang a song called ‘power in me’.
It was super exciting to be apart of all these performances. We are extremely proud of our achievements throughout this term.
Hope you enjoy your holidays, because we defiantly will!
