My Mind Map

Have you ever heard of a mind map? Well I’m going to tell you about mine.

These are the rules:

• My grade had five thick branches then lots of little ones that come off it. • The Writing had to be as close to horizontal as possible.

• We had to have some diagrams.

Have a look at my amazing Earth mind map. To see how much I’ve learned.

Indigenous Flag

On the Indigenous flag the top half is black and the bottom half is red. There’s a big yellow circle in the middle. The flag was created in 1971.

The top Black part represents the Aboriginal people of Australia. The bottom red part represents the red earth. The yellow circle represents the sun and the giver of life.

If I could make any changes I would put the Australian flag in the corner. I would make the changes because the Australian flag and the Indigenous flag can be on one flag.

How Day And Night Changes

 

Before I learnt about how day and               Have a good look at this                                                       night changes I thought it changed           Photo and you will see how                                                           like the photo above.                                        It changes

 

The earth spin a round anti clock wise  and the  part of the earth that is facing the sun is day time. The parts that not facing the sun is night.

Walk To Warrina

On the 9th of September the grade 4s walked to Warrina. All the year 4s sang Waltzing Matilda the Queensland version. My class performed Mulga Bills poem by Banjo Paterson. 4B performed The Man From Iron Bark and 4C performed The Bush Christening.

 

After we performed we got in small groups and interviewed a person who was being cared for. We filmed the person getting interviewed. I asked my elderly these questions: What did you do when you were a teenager and she said play in the back yard with her brothers and sisters. I also asked what was her favourite toy she said little tiny dolls. I asked her what she wanted to be a hair dresser.

 

WHAT A FUN DAY!!

Farmer duck hidden messages

I am in year 4. My teacher just read me a picture story book! We read Farmer Duck and we had to find the hidden messages.

Famer Duck is about a lazy famer that makes his duck do all the work! The other animals made a plan and chased the lazy famer away and he never came back. The animals made the farm way better.

I am going to use a message as a leaning goal for this term. The one that will help me the most is work to your best so I can be successful with my work.
