On Thursday we started Combat Fitness. This is all about getting fit while learning some new moves. The most challenging thing was do all the stretches, man they were hard. It’s cool how you body can take all these fitness activities. We mostly did the activities on our core (stomach). Overall this was really fun and I cant wait to put these moves to the test.
Here is a video of us doing plunges:
Over the past few weeks we have been doing Christmas activities in art. The activity I enjoyed was Christmas Baubles. Where we has blow green paint on a paper to make the Christmas tree and then we cut out the balls on the paper to make the baubles. This is a very Christmas spirit task and I really enjoyed it and I was really proud of my Christmas tree and I hope we do more in the future.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been looking at the Blewett report and how it explains the Recommendation 12. On the 25th off November politicians will be voting for clear labeling for palm oil on all products. We had to write a persuasive letter to the politicians to make them vote yes. Here are some facts about palm oil. I was surprised that it is in 50% of products, and in Sumatra and Borneo they are chopping down forest (deforestation) which is badly affecting the Sumatran Orangutans, Tigers and Elephants. I also learnt that instead of labeling palm oil as palm oil it is usually labeled as vegetable oil. I wonder if the politicians vote yes and we label palm oil, how many consumers would buy the products that hided palm oil from them? I predict that the politicians will vote yes because it will allow consumers to know what is in their food and have an choice in what they buy. Here is my strongest reason why they should vote yes and my favorite paragraph from my letter.
“84% of people want clear labeling of palm oil on all products. Consumers want to know what is in their food. 83% also think that labeling should be mandatory through the law. 90% of New Zealand also want Mandatory labeling”.
Would you say Yes or No?
In Italiano this semester I learnt a lot about Italian Migration story and how the Italians have impacted Australia. The person that I was researching was Called Johnny Di Francesco. The impact that Johnny had on Australia was pretty big because he owns the number on rated pizza joint in the world. This really inspired me \because it says even those your in a new country you still can achieve anything. I really like this topic And it shows how a lot of people can change an entire nation. One word I really found interesting was “quando”
Over the past few weeks we have been learning about the Creation and Stewards of the Earth. The first thing that I achieved was “Identify how human beings have misused God’s creation and name some solutions to environmental concerns” . I achieved this because now I understand how people misuse god creation. EG: People are littering which then is killing seals and other sea animals. Another one I have Achieved is. “Describe Pope Francis and the laudato si”. I achieved this goal because I understand how Pope Francis wants us to change the world from War to Peace. EG: This is the year of mercy so Pope Francis wants us to be kind and enjoy each other with love and peace, “ Build walls not bridges”. The last one I achieved was “Explain the concept of ecological conversion and identify how human beings care for creation”. I achieved this because I know that people are trying to make a change, so the world can come together. EG: The Year Of Mercy.
Do you know any of these things?
