Today is St Margret Mary’s Book week celebration which is where the whole school dresses up of their favourite book character. I dressed up as Terry from the Tree House series which is one of my favourite series. I wonder how many more books they will make of the Tree House. We had activity which was called Book Face, which was when we had to put a book in front of our face and try to make it fit. The most difficult thing was to try and fit the book with my face so it could look perfect but I think it fir really well for me. I was surprized that my partners photo was pretty good but it took forever to get it perfect. Do you guys have any idea for a costume I could wear next time?
Over the past few weeks we have been learning about Historical Narratives. A Historical Narrative is where the setting is set in a Historical time but the main story is fiction. It’s cool how you can change of bit of history but keep it realistic. My Historical Narrative story is about Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, but when he is going back towards earth his rocket starts to malfunction. I discovered that there are so many different ways you can twist History and so many ways you can make History better. At the start of this topic I had no idea what Historical Narritive was about but I know that it is really mind blowing. We also read this book about Rose Blanche. This book was set in world war two with Hitler and the Jews and how Hitler gassed all the Jews to kill them.
Yesterday all seniors classes went to the Immigration Museum. This was because we are learning about Migration. The most challenging thing was trying to do The dictation and keeping up with him. If you did not know the Dictation is where they test if you can speak the common language in that country. Three things I learnt is that 572 Americans have migrated to Australia. Another thing is that sometimes people just dont migrate because of war they might come for different reasons like Peace, Freedom, a New lifestyle or a New Opportunity and finally I learnt That you have to go into camps when you are migrating. Two wonderings I have is, Who came up with the name Migration? And Why do we need Migration? And one Opinion I have is That we should have bigger boats so people can stretch their legs and the government should supply the boat with food. I wonder how do we get these boats and how buys the boats? It was cool how you can go into the boast and see how difficult it was in there.
