In Maths, I learnt what a Cartesian plane is and how it works. The Cartesian plane is basically a graph, and you figure out things and draw things. Also, in maths online I beat my high score, and asked good questions to get it correct.

In Writing, I learnt narrative point of view. Narrative point of view means ‘who’s telling the story?’ 1st person means, he/she is talking about themselves, 2nd person means, they’re telling you what to do and 3rd person means, they’re witnessing the action and talking about it.


On the 26th of July the yr 5’s went to a massive discovery centre in Bendigo. We went to 3 different places in the discovery centre, 1: Vertical Slide, 2: Planetarium Room and 3: Chemistry Room. The one I enjoyed the most was the vertical slide. I enjoyed it but I was really, really, really scared Why? It is a 90° drop! We also had to choose something in the “play room” to share in class. I chose an optical illusion.

I learnt a lot from the discovery centre and enjoyed it too.

Week 4 reflection

In maths I learnt there are different time zones in Australia. They are the Eastern Time Zone, Central Time Zone and the Western Time Zone. In the Central Time Zone the states or territories are NT and SA. In the Eastern Time Zone the states or territories are VIC, QLD, ACT, TAS and NSW. Lastly, in the Western Time Zone the states or territories are only WA. The western side of Australia gets the sun last, because the earth is titled and it is orbiting around the sun while spinning, that’s why it’s different times.

In Writers Workshop our class has to write a science fiction story. My story is about a friend and I preparing for a Robot invasion.

Student led Conference

Finally, another 3 way conference over. I can rub that off my list! On Wednesday we had our 3 way conference. I’m pretty happy how it went last night.

At the start I was feeling nervous because I didn’t know what to say, but I realised I could just wing it!

During the 3 way conference, I was still a little bit nervous but also happy because Mrs. Boyd was proud of how I was conducting myself.

After it, I was so relieved and happy that it was over. I was happy with the feedback I got, and happy because my mum was happy. My mum was happy because she was proud of how far I’ve come and proud of what I’m doing.
