My Poem

Never use the word AWESOME, our teacher said.
It doesn’t mean a thing!
Try… Inspiring, Beautiful, Overtaking
Impressive, Magnificent, Breathtaking
Amazing, Wonderful, Intimidating -
the choice is as long as a string!
But please never use the word AWESOME,
It just doesn’t mean a thing!

(She’s AWESOME our teacher)

Mathematical me - body measurement

Today Nyjah and I were working on our DLO that is called Body Measurement we were given instructions to get into pairs and each pair was given a long piece of string that would be used to measure parts of our body and compare it to another body part. We were surprised that the length of your arm from wrist to elbow is the same as the length of your foot. We had fun doing this math activity. We also thought that we co-operated as a team very well.

The tunnel

Through the big broken branches, I could see a shine of bright gold glimpsed of light bleming through the
trees. There was a path which lead towards a tunnel. The tunnel looked like a enormous Easter egg.
As I creeped through this mysterious patterned tunnel I could hear birds singing and snakes that slithered
through the leaves. As I walked the leaves would fall like rain every second or step I take it was like they
wanted to surround me as I walked.

Today I was working on my Setting Description. First we were given a picture which is the picture above. Then I made a start on my writing but didn't get to finish it but here is a piece of the writing that I have started on.

Emily was taking a walk in the backyard and heard a noise on the
other side of the bush. She wanted to have a look. So she went and
saw magic. She had always had a thing for magic didn’t matter what
it was, as long as it had different magic tricks. On the other side of
that bush she saw the man that was using magic, it looked like he was
lifting chairs in thin air. Emily didn’t think it was possible. She went
to have a closer look, but tripped over a branch. Then suddenly
she was in the sight of this mysterious man. Who was this man in
the blue jeans? While Emily was trying to make herself presentable
she walked up to the person with the mystical appearance.

Today for writing we did our character description on this picture. We had to explain how someone would feel and do if they saw someone using magic or magic tricks that you have never seen before or if its been a while sense you have seen that trick happen.

Chinese New Year celebration

Why is the chinese new year a very old tradition?

Kung hei fat choi means Happy New Year in Chinese. Every year Chinese New Year is held in China and many different countries. It starts on a new moon. So, this year it started on February 16th.
On February 16th Chinese New Year is celebrated. The chinese people celebrate with a traditional feast and end it with a lantern festival. To decide the order of the animals, they had an animal race. They had a race to see which animal will be the Animal of the Year. For 2018 the animal that we have is a Dog. This is also the animal for 2006 / 1994 / 1982 /1970 and 1958. The Dog has three meanings which are responsibility, being serious, it also represents being loyal.
Chinese New Year can be celebrated by anyone. The colours are Red and Gold. They also have traditional foods which are Shrimp, Noodles, Dumplings, Spring Rolls, Fish, Tanyaung, Sweet Rice Balls, Tangerines, and Glutinous Rice Cake.
Chinese New Year finishes after 15 days. So since Chinese New Year started February 6th  it will finish on the 2nd of March. On the last day they do the Lantern Festival. In the lantern festival they have many lanterns in different shapes. They also make the lantern fly away or make it float on the water. For 2018 they are going to hold the Lantern Festival at the Harbour Bridge.

Chinese New Year starts on the first day of a new moon, this year it started on February 16th. Every year Chinese New Year is held in China and in many other different countries, once again Kung hei fat choi which means Happy New Year in Chinese.

This week our focus was creating a explanation about how China and other countries celebrate Chinese New Year. I was working together with Marieta on this explanation. We had found information on sites like Wikipedia and ideas from the class room.

I heard water splashing as i was swimming 

I heard snoring coming for my uncle's room

I felt excited as i jumped into the fresh clean water, but as i i swam it got dirty

I wondered if jumping over a electric fence if i would make it
