Flight Of The Bumblebee

In class we had to listen to a piece of music called Flight Of The Bumblebee and draw a picture of what we think when we listen to the song then we had to tell it in a piece of writing!

The Bee has to get some pollen for his colony otherwise he will be grounded. when he sees the flowers the music starts getting louder and faster that means that he is in great danger, "There's a spider guarding the flowers!" he says, the spider spots him then is ready to attack but another enemy spotted him first the wasp colony, a bees worst enemy.

As the music gets faster and louder the wasp colony are chasing the bee around and around but the bee is smart and he quickly zips through the spiders web without the spider know while all the wasps are caught in the spiders web and the bee grabs the pollen and flies safely back to his hive, as the music ends soft!

Using Times Tables For a Song

Do you think it is a good idea to learn our times tables using song why/ why not

My Response: I think we should have times tables as a song because it makes children have fun and want to come back to school to learn their times tables!

Drama Game

We circled ourselves in a round 2D shape. We were playing charades or you could say that we were acting out drama well charades is drama. If you don’t know how to play just click this link to watch a Video about drama or read this.

Instructions / How We Played It:

  1. No talking
  2. Act it out then freeze
  3. A person from the circle does something to change the action
  4. Freeze
  5. The person who had a turn at acting goes in the circle

And that was how we played our type of charades! For some of us it was fun for others they didn’t find it so cool, but I was in the fun side, I found it really cool to act because it built up my confidence a little bit. After we had done all that Miss West told us to get into groups up to 1-4. I went with my best friend Freedom and a few more mates.

What we acted out was volleyball my exact favourite sport. Harlyn and Me were the net and Freedom and Lennox were on both sides pretending to hit the invisible or imaginable ball. Everybody thought we were playing volleyball and they were right but a girl in my class called Pisirina thought we were ballroom dancing!

And that was the end of the games we played, we went back to class to write a blog like this one that you’ve been reading this entire time!

Toby & AJF - Problem Solving

Immersion Assembly Recount - Musical Madness

As the sound of music reached my ear I knew it was a boring song. I had already heard it as I walked into the doors of Pt England School for the first day of Term 4. I wasn’t so excited about the new term especially when I saw the topic for this term… Musical Madness!

Then there was the performances that the teachers do to show what they're going to be doing this Term. Every teacher from each team does a performance to the entire school to let us see what they’re going to be learning!
