Year 7

Hello everybody. I’m so sorry, I haven’t posted anything for AGES! but I have some very exciting news. I’m now (as you may have guessed) in year seven and I am doing another musical! The musical is into the woods. Since I’m now only in the senior school, I am just in chorus (playing the role of a tree) but it’s still amazing. But how funny is that. I’m one of many other trees in the musical but we move…

Exhibition Opening

Exhibition Opening

For UOI, we have been doing the exhibition. To do this, we were given the central idea, which, in our case was Peace and conflict affect our world. We brainstormed what could be peace of conflict or, what could affect or provoke peace and conflict. After that, we put down what group we wanted to be in e.g. natural disasters affect peace and conflict or, domestic violence affects peace and conflict. I was put in the creative arts group (dance, music, theatre…

I went there with a friend from school (her blog is http://angelinaj23.edublogs.org/) We rode a ferry there and sat at the front of the boat which was very nice with the wind in our face. We mucked around the sand for a bit then got changed into swimmers after a lunch of fish and chips. The…

Peter Garrett

Peter Garrett

In UOI (unit of inquiry) we are looking at significant events and people in Australia and I chose to look at Peter Garrett who is the lead singer of midnight oil. He was part of the house of representatives and was an environmentalist and midnight oil’s most famous song is called Beds are burning and it is about giving the land back to the Aboriginals. I think it is definitely a different song from normal but it is definitely a…

Books In The Holidays

Books In The Holidays

During the holidays I have read a lot of books. I read a book called The Flyaway girls about gymnastics and friendships. It is definitely different to the books I have recently been reading but it was very good. I also read the Hunger Games series which was a little bit gory but was still an excellent series to read and I highly recommend it. It was mainly about a girl who is put in the hunger games (a fight…

Presenting my passion project was full of lots of excitement (especially because the whole junior school, teachers and some parents were coming to see) . I did get one kindy who came up to me so I showed her my clarinet and she immediately stepped back saying that my clarinet is a big flute. It was lots of fun looking at other passion projects. Some girls did some amazing things to help others for example, one girl made kits for…

Passion Project Week 5

Passion Project Week 5

This week I have made a bit of progress in my instrumental music and I have realised that it takes a long time to create it! I really have to continue the music almost every afternoon if I am to also have enough time to do the vocal recording at the end. I have made the instrumental music up to the 2nd chorus so far as well as figuring out a tune for most of the vocal part of the…
