The Cool Microphone

Mrs Mac brought a cool microphone. The new microphone is cool. We had a good time sharing our news with the microphone. The microphone can record our news while we are talking. It has a data stick so Mrs Mac can put it on her computer . We can also listen to our news when we are finshed because we recorded it. We sit on the mat in a circle and share our news. The best bit is listening to our news. We can't see anything.

Our Pirate Maps

Free website -

Last term we were learning all about writing instructions. We got to create our own islands and design pirate maps to go with them. Then we wrote instructions to help the pirates find the treasure buried on our islands. The little booklet has pictures of some of our maps.

Polar Bear Animation

I made a slide show with 16 photos. the polar bear was very full after he ate the seal. I was very excited because I remembered how to rotate & flip the polar bear so that it would change direction. The polar bear heard something so he turned around. Mrs Mac showed some of the other teachers - they were very impressed. She also showed me how to add sound effects to my movie in Movie Maker. You can hear the sound effect when you play the video.

Learning to Animate

Mrs Mc taught K.H and some other children how to use Paint and Power Point to make animations. We thought it was really cool and we all want to learn how to make our own animations. Mrs Mc started off by creating 5 pictures to show us how to do it. Then K.H. got to use Mrs Mc's pictures to create 3 more pictures to add to the animation. The animation in this post was created by Mrs Mc and K.H.together.
K.H. then got to start working on his own animation and has had a very busy day creating graphics for his animation. He's going to finish it next week to share with us all. K.H. is also going to become the class expert and teach some more of us how to make animations. This means we get to be experts too and teach other children in our class.
Make sure you check back regularly to see our animations as we add them.

Cross Country Practice

This year the cross country is very long. The cross country goes out of school and down the
road. Along the way we saw a beautiful house and a huge pool on the deck. The bottom of my shoe was broken. I showed my teacher my broken shoe. After the practice it was lunch time.

Australian Aboriginals

Our class is learning about the Australian Aboriginals. We have learnt a lot about them. We are also learning about people who live by Uluru. The people who live by Uluru eat a type of food called bush tucker. They suck the nectar from honey grevillea flowers. They eat honey ants. The children like to play in the sand. They like to explore the rocks.

The Magical Kingfisher

It was hot and all the people were thirsty. The rock hole ran out of water then…
The king fisher came and picked up the people. He had this land with heaps of water. He took the people to his land.
The people were so happy that they had so much fun. They drank big mouthfuls of water until they were no longer thirsty and they became stronger.
They decided to stay there forever.

The Magical Kingfisher

We have been learning how to retell traditional Aboriginal stories in our own words. Here is L.K's retelling.

Once upon a time there was a magical kingfisher.It watched the people.
Once it got TOO HOT! All the water dried up and the animals went away. They called for the magical kingfisher. It came and took them to his magical waterhole. They lived there for the rest of their life.
