patterns

Our new topic in maths is patterns and codes. We are focusing on things like the Fibonacci code and all that. I think it will be good, I can’t wait till we do more. The Fibonacci code goes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,

Art club

In school Reece, Scott, Harry, Connor, Liam and Donald have started an art club on Wednesday lunchtimes for p1-p5.  Last Wednesday was our first time. We had 22 people (more than we thought) and got a lot of good pieces of art work done. We have still to make certificates for the best 5 pieces of artwork. So far Abbie Morris done the best piece of art. She drew a picture of Phinneas and Ferb.

National Galleries Competition

We have chosen our photos and written our stories about them for the National Galleries Competition which Port Ellen Primary does every year. Sometimes we’re lucky and other times we’re not but it’s fun to do any way. This year I did my story from the point of view of a horse. Elinor in our class is really good at writing and I hope she gets placed.

Layton Comic Strips

In class we have been using Professor Layton to

do reading so we are making Layton comic strips!

I’m working with Emily and we have a puzzle and

a golden apple and a cool code and a secret passage!

It’s one of the best comic strips in the class. I’m not

very good at coloring though so it looks a teeny bit

messy. The plot’s good though!
