Project Reflection!

My animal was the bilby, and I was really looking forward to learning about it. I personally think that I have achieved having more confidence because Jacinta and I had to be the second ones to go up and present, I had butterfly’s in my tummy but I got thought it and I thought we did really well. With the rubric I underlined mostly 3’s because I think we did a pretty good job at everything to do with our presentation, and I was just really impressed with our model because we put so much effort into it so I am glad that it all payed off.

3 facts I found interesting were:

*that the bilbies sense of seeing and hearing is not acute so their hearing is very acute.

*a baby bilby has to stay in its mothers belly for 80 days before coming out.

*a bilbies borrow can get up 2-3 meters deep.

Understandings:

*I understand that if a baby bilby came out of its mothers pouch early it would not survive.

*I understand that if the bilby didn’t have powerful forelimbs then, if it was running from its predators then it would have all ready been eaten because, its forelimbs give the bilby power to run fast.

Wondering:

*I am still wondering why a bilby has a black band around its tail.

Most Important:

I think the most important thing that I have learned this unit is how all these different types of animals have adapted over time for example I never knew that a camel had 3 sets of eyelashes.

How I learnt it:

I learnt it by paying attention in class and of course being engaged in the topic.

What am I going to do with what I have learnt:

I am going remember it so for the future if I need to know what the word or meaning of adaptations is I will be able to tell them.

 

 

More Funding for Public and Private Schools BTN

Insights.Recalls.Quetion

Recalls

That the schools are not getting enough funding to pay for their buildings and equipment.

Public schools get payed more from the government and private schools get payed more from the federal government.

Public schools get more money from the government while private school don’t get payed as much because the parents pay more to go their so they use the money the parents/guardians give for the child to go to the school.

Insight

the government should listen to what the schools need.

Questions

why isn’t the government giving to schools the money they need?

why does the federal government give money to the private schools instead of the public?

 

The Rain the Horror…..

That rain caused so many problems……

And I was there to see it all happen. I didn’t want to be there to see it, but I was and so yeah, and I will tell you how and what happened……

It was a normal, well I would say normal if that means the popular group is making fun of the nerds again. Then detention kids are making more trouble than usual then, yeah, that is normal.

Then there’s me, a girl who just sits in the corner of the class reading a book in peace and quiet where no one will distract me, not even my friend’s do you want to know why because I DON’T HAVE ANY!!!!!

Any way that would really just be my day, reading and sitting in the back of the class. If it was lunch I would go in the cleaner’s closet and read, ahhh… the memories. The teacher slaps the ruler on the table. “Miss Bluewood would you like to tell me why you are still reading that, that book?” “Umm because it’s a nice book,” I said very scared.

And then that’s when it happened the rain the horror. I don’t even want to tell you, actually you know what, I won’t tell you.

Even if you are begging me really hard I won’t tell you, hang on did you say chocolate I mean I will do anything for choco… wait are you trying to tell me what happened by giving me chocolate? Well it is working, oh fine I will tell you.

Ok so as I said I was reading my book when Miss Judejohnstone interrupted me. “Well Miss Bluewood I am waiting.” “ahhh umm Geo…rge Wash..in..ton cre..ated th..e fir..st,” “I don’t want to hear it,” Miss Judejohnstone said in a mean and angry way.

Finally, the class was over, the down side was that I was in put in detention. Normally I would be happy because I can read in peace and quiet, but all the detention kids were in here. And the worst thing was I had to spend 3 hours in here with them.

 

3 hours later….

Oh My God…. I don’t think I could last another minute longer with those boys. I got home and my mum was so scared she thought I got kidnapped, so I explained why I was late.

Then the next day when I was at school, I tried to forget about detention and when Miss Judejohnstone yelled at me. Anyway, I went on as usual and went in the cleaner’s closet to read.

Then it was time for class and it was my favourite subject, but guess who was teaching it, Miss Judejohnstone. Ahhh and I thought this day couldn’t get any worst.

And then it happened. The rain, the horror. I was about to scream but if I did, water would have gone in my mouth. And then…..

To be continued……
