THE FIRST FLEET

 

Our integrated topic this term has been the First Fleet.  We have learned all about how many ships were in the First Fleet.  Why people were sent to Australia on the First Fleet and how difficult it was for the people who came to Australia.

IMG_0566

 

We discovered lots of information about the people who were transported to Australia.  We used technology to investigate what the ships in the First Fleet looked like.  We drew them and then made them.

ARRAY CITY

An arrangement of objects, pictures, or numbers in columns and rows is called an array. Arrays are useful representations of multiplication concepts.

We have been working on multiplication and as part of our learning we made an array city.

Our city is on display in the corridor and in the classroom.

Come in and check it out.

Here’s us working hard on our array city.

Brainstorm Productions

On Tuesday 12th May 2015, we saw Brain Storm Productions! They did a play called “The H Team”, it was about a boy named Cal and he got sucked into a sad boy, named Kenny’s body. Mindy went into the Danger Zone to try and save Cal!!! It was full of dancing and singing. The message was don’t eat junk food and if you put the energy in you have to get it out. In the end they saved Cal and went back home.

Brainstorm Productions “The H Team”

This year Brainstorm was about the H Zone and keeping fit and healthy. The whole school went into the hall. The main characters were Mindy and Cal. Cal got sucked into the Danger Zone and Mindy had to help him. Cal got sucked into a boy named Kenny. Kenny ate lots of fat and lots of fat isn’t good for your body. I loved Brainstorm! I can’t wait for next year!

Brainstorm

At Brainstorm they talked about health and staying in the H Zone. There was a funny song and it went like this, “I want a mega bugy burger.” There was a boy named Kenny and he was a weird kid. There were only 2 people doing the whole show. I wish I could see it again, it was funny, embarrassing and a bit boring but I still liked it. There was a boy named Cal and a girl called Mindy.

By Chloe

Brainstorm/H Team

On the 12th of May the Brainstorm people performed the H Team for the whole school. It was about a captain in the H Team. He owned the place call the H Zone. There was a girl who hated the H Zone and she explained why and said “The H Zone sucks. We have the same nature boost, the same orders and the same ordinary people every day.” She didn’t like it. They accidentally went to Australia. They had some problem, but fixed it. When they went back they were captains of the H Zone.

By Lilly

Brainstorm Productions the H Team

The message was to be kind and to not eat junk food. There were 2 people who were acting as the characters. The boy was acting as 3 characters and the girl was acting as 2 characters. I think that Brainstorm Productions was excellent. I’ll give it 100 out of 100. It was the best day of my life.

Brainstorm – The H Team

On Tuesday at FEPS the whole school went to the Brainstorm Production. It was ok, it was a bit babyish. They sang a song and it’s stuck in my head. The message was to not sit inside all day and eat junk food and go on the internet and be careful.
