Testing Our Bridges: Reflecting


We had to do build a model bridge and see if a toy truck, carrying three little blocks, could go over our bridge, without the bridge bending or falling over. Our bridge did not succeed because the barrier was not strong or stable enough and also because the pillars were not stable.


Next time we will make the pillars the right measurement and the barriers much more stable by using something else besides double - sided tape.

Our brilliant beans!


A few weeks ago Room 6 Planted kidney beans (I think) in plastic cups. At first, we had plastic bags with a napkin and each of them having our beans inside.We had the idea of planting beans after reading the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

We carefully watched till we had to put some soil in. That was when we planted our beans in plastic cups. All of us plotted our beans into our topic books and wrote up to 14 or 16 days to see its progress. Right now the person with the tallest bean is M.L, B.R or M.Y. I can't really remember, but nevermind.

Work in Progress - Planning our Bridges

Our Bridge Building Project



For Topic we have been researching the different types of bridges after reading The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We then decided to build our own bridges with a buddy. After careful consideration and lots of discussion we chose a type of bridge to construct. We did a brainstorm and planned how we were going to achieve this. After making detailed sketches of our designs we made a prototype. Here are some of our prototypes. Keep watching to see our final creations. We are sure you will be impressed!!!

Superstar!!!

Hi there! I'm gonna show you a story that I wrote. The main character is Michael Jackson!



Hope you like it!



I just woke up from a horrible nightmare. Drops of sweat were falling into the palm of my hand. I got up and poured a glass of juice.My stomach growled badly. Grrrrr! I asked my chef to make me a cumin omelet.When the omelet went down my throat it felt weird, sorta like a yummy kind of weird.Later I went downstairs but my family wasn't there. Then I went to the TV room. I first put on CNBC but then I got bored.



I went to my doorman,Norman and asked him: "Is today the day when I go to the Telstra building?" He nodded. I glared at him. Then I ran outside. There was a gleaming white limo. I sat in the limo and inside there was a TV, laptop and a wine bar.

As soon as I got into the Telstra building I dashed out of the limo and ran to the back of the stage."Is it my turn?" I asked the stage man. He nodded and I rant to the stage. Every one including my family,sitting in the V.I.P. area screaming out my name. I cupped the microphone and sang:"Beat it! Beat it!" The crowd shrieked with joy. At the end, I left with a two million dollar check. When I reached home my family hugged me hard core.That day was my favorite day.

Hannah Montana's Lucky Show

Room 6 have all been writing stories about a pop star,or if we were the pop stars. This is the beginning of my story. I hope you like it.

Hannah Montana woke up from a deep sleep. She felt like crabs were in her throat and she also had pins and needles in her feet. "Hannah, breakfast!"shouted Billy Ray. She ran downstairs as he was cracking eggs and putting it into a glass.

Hannah Montana ran into her dressing room wondering what to wear. She got a gold top,black skinny jeans and black high heel shoes. While she was in the white limo she got served champagne and a feast. She felt terrified of what was going to happen.

My 1980's Birthday Party

Room 6 have been learning about Trend's Through Time. We have written stories about a 1980's birthday party and I would like to share mine with you. I hope you like it!

I skipped happily into the Tall House. The first thing that caught my eye was all the delicious food laying down on the caramel gold table. I saw sushi, rice crispies and even flutta nutta sandwich's! As I searched the table for the frozen yoghurt,Elise called to me,"Hey Haseena,come join us." So I trodded over to the ultramarine blue and lightening yellow bouncy castle.

We talked and talked until the Tall House shook and there was a blast of music. Sooner or later I noticed everyone running and gathering around the ink black stage. I hopped over to the stage to see what was going on when I saw Paige,Rosie,Elise and Madison all doing the moonwalk. I snatched five vanilla mousse's from the table just in time to see Sophie doing the jam! Suddenly the crowd started dancing fantabulously.

By the time I had finished my tenth mousse,people were calling me and telling me to dance. So I got on stage and started dancing to Wham,when my head started spinning around and around. I was feeling dizzy but my friends gave me an ice pack and I was feeling better. One hour later the party was over and everyone went home. It was a very surprising party.

Cars Of The Past

Our "Topic" for this term, is "Trends Through Time". One of the subjects we discussed were
"cars of the past".






















In the old days, people used carriages to move around. They were a very uncomfortable form of transport and only the rich could afford them.



































Look at the artwork we have created by looking at still life images of carriages.












































We used dry media to create our art. We also used directional marks before we coloured in as well as different drawing techniques.
































Our Teacher thinks we are really talented!
