Behind the News Video

This behind the news video was about a issue that occurred recently when Cameron Bancroft was caught on the camera ball tampering. Because of this Steve Smith (the captain) and David Warner (the person who came up with the idea) are both banned for twelve months. Cameron Bancroft (who actually did it) was banned for nine months. Cameron Bancroft ball tampered so the ball would swing to the shiny side of the ball. It is meant to swing to the rough side. Why did Australia want to win the test match so badly? Why did Steve Smith say yes to the ball tampering? I understand now that Cameron Bancroft’s ball Tampering was not the right thing to do.

Hi! My name is Aaron Sandilands (the tallest person in the AFL) and I have the ball right now. We are playing the Essendon Bombers and I am getting chased by one of the fastest people in the whole AFL. Although I was running fast I was still not making enough progress. He has caught me. BBBBBBBBBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Shouted the Essendon fans. I have to admit that I was holding the ball. I was a crushing and brilliant tackle. Dustin Martin could have broken it but other than that it was a perfect tackle. The umpire had payed holding the ball.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Million Dollar mess (down under)!

This book was about a boy called Rafe who was a normal boy. One day one of his very far relatives died and left him his house. Rafe found out that the house was worth a million dollars but he had to go to the school that he went to when he was a kid. He hated the school because of the teachers and the bullies. One of the gang of bullies called themselves the winners. Rafe found out that he was a famous painter called John Olsen who painted heaps of abstract paintings. Rafe only had one friend called Kasey and she always thought that John Olsen was the best painter in the world and Rafe started to like his paintings a lot too.

Goals for semester 1

 

What I want to learn:

  • I want to learn how to make my sizzling starts more exciting so I can hook the reader in more and entertain them.
  • I want to learn how natural disasters happen and what they do to the environment. I think it is really bad for the environment

 

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

  • I think I should spend a bit more time planning my beginning in so it will be more of a sizzling start and it is more exciting.
  • I also think I should try hard on it.

 

How I learn and behave:

  • I think I need to try a bit harder on my work because in grade 4 I think I was giving 90% of my personal best.
  • I also think I need to try harder on my homework not just my schoolwork.

 

List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

– Practice a lot.

– Spend more time on it.

– Not get distracted.

– Push myself.

I think that I am trying really hard to pay attention to the teacher and other students. I tried really hard this term not to get distracted because last year I made bad choices by always sitting with my friends. I am also trying hard on doing my homework early and I also do include a lot of interesting new words so I think that I have had an improvement to last year because I always did it late. I think that this year I am giving it 100% of my personal best to achieve this I did spend heaps more time than I would normally do. This term to achieve this goal I spend about one hour more on it than I used to.  I hope that I still might get better at doing my homework on maybe a Monday. I also think that I could improve making my handwriting neater instead of just rushing it all the time. If I would choose another goal, it would probably be to work with new people other than just my friends. Because normally when I need a partner I normally go with my best friends.

My awesome infographic- The Senate

2

In class we have been learning about government and we made a infographic about something in the parliament. I created mine about the Senate in the parliament. The Senate is one of the two houses of parliament. The other house is called the House of Representatives. First the House of Representatives  has to vote on the law. If they want it, The law goes to the Senate and if they want it is a law. But if they don’t want it goes back to the house of representatives to either change or get rid of it. I tried to make my infogrphic have more pictures so it wasn’t a poster. I also had  known how to make the paragraphs last year.

Oh No! My dog is loose on the road and he is about to get run over by a car! “Ted come back here, you are going to die!” I screamed at the top of my lungs. My dog was a puppy. He was only six months old and he was a Greyhound so I had no chance of catching him. Yes! He cannot go anywhere because I have got him in a corner. What! He just climbs up the tree. If someone came wandering around the corner they would be saying `but how did he get up there’. Got him!

This behind the news video was about the different times of when people were allowed to vote and weren’t allowed to vote. In the 18 hundreds women were not allowed to vote because they thought that women were not smart enough and that they would not understand politics. In 1903 aboriginal Australians were not allowed to vote. It was in 1949 that only aboriginal Australians that took part in the army were allowed to vote. It was only in 1962 that the government let the aboriginal Australians vote. Then from 1963-1973 the voting age was 21 and then it changed to 18. Why is the age of voting 18 why not 15? Why weren’t aboriginals allowed to vote? I understand that voting has a lot of history.

My Behind The News video

This text was about the upper house and it also touched slightly on the lower house. If someone wants to make a law the lower house (The House of Representatives) votes on it and then if they want it, the upper house (The Senate) has to vote. There are 76 senators. 12 from each of the six states and two from both of the two territories. There is a part that is on the government side, a part that is labor side and then there are the minor parties on the end. Why is the Senate coloured red? What happens if exactly half want it and half don’t? I know understand that the Senate seats are arranged in a U shape.

This Behind The News video  was about the three levels of government. The three levels of government are Federal, State/Territory and Local. The Federal government has the job of defending the nation, trade and other countries, money and taxes, communications and environment. State and Territory governments control the states and territories, health, education, mining and agriculture, police and courts, roads and transport. Local governments are in charge of local roads, garbage, pets, local buildings and permits. Back in the olden days the states were their own different colonies. Why did all the states used to be their own country? Why does federal over rule state and local? I now understand that all the different government have their own responsibilities and rights.
