Year 6 at St Lukes

It is getting near the end of the year and it is the year sixes last year at St Lukes. We have shared great memories here and will remember them forever. To help remind us about our primary years we are all writing reflection on what we remember from prep to year 6. We are all going through old photos and already realising how fast it went. When we leave we will all miss St Lukes as they helped us become who we are today. There are great friendships and bonds between each student and I will never forget them.

Inquiry-Pandemic

Hello, lately for inquiry Matt and I have been working on ebola (a pandemic) and are nearly finished. We are making a movie and are already underway. We have finished our script and got all the costumes prepared. We are using green screen to get the real movie effect. The information we are using is on Matthews blog. Visit his blog at  http://matthewgsl.global2.vic.edu.au/ or Matt’s sporting blog. So far we have been working really well together and the work has been shared evenly. Overall I have had a fun time learning about ebola and have discovered alot more than I used to know.

My Mothers Eyes

Today is Remembrance day and we read a story called My Mothers Eyes. It is an astonoshing Reality of World War 1 and is based on the many who fought and lost there lives in Flanders fields. Men who faked there age to what they thougth was their duty but spent their last minutes to the rythm of gun shots and endless shouts of mercy.  Fields left with pools of innocent peoples blood. There is now poppys that sway in the wind and many people who pay there respects every year to those who died. Yet through these tough times there was unconditional love and care between each Australian soldier and the safety of our country relied on them, thats why today we remeber them. On the eleventh month at the eleventh hour the guns dropped and there was silence. Lest we Forget.

Natural Disasters-Homework

This term for our inquiry topics we are doing natural disasters. Each student it to research a Natural Disaster and make a model. I chose to do avalanches. I found out heaps of interesting facts like: the weight of a person can cause an avalanche, 150 people die a year from avalanches and that Avalanches can reach speeds of up to 300kmh.  Other students did topics like Volcanoes, Tsunamis and cyclones. The modles were amazing and i had a really good time presenting it and making it!
