Shape Monsters

In class we have been learning all about Geometry. We focused on shapes. To show what we have learnt we created a shape monster. We created a 3D shape from a net then added 2D shapes for eyes legs etc. here are some of them.


Yesterday was the Senior School Team's Athletics day. We had high jump, long jump, vortex, shot put, long distance and sprints. Everyone had a go at every activity. It was great to see everyone having fun and trying hard. I wonder who has made it to interschool athletics.

Assembly Item

Last week we had an Assembly Item, Two Pigs, a Wolf and a Mud Pie! All of the boys had a part and dressed up. They worked extremely hard and presented a fantastic play. Well done boys.

Our New Habit

Today we started our new, Finding Humour. We talked about how its good to have a laugh but we need to know when its appropriate and when its not. To help us find humour we researched some jokes. Here are a few the boys came up with.


Teacher: Billy stop making ugly faces at other students!
Billy: But why ma’am!
Teacher: Because when I was a child, my parents told me that if I kept making ugly faces my face would stay like that!
Billy: Well, I can see you didn’t listen then!

What do you call cheese that’s not yours?

What do you get when you cross a sheep and a kangaroo?
A woolly jumper

Last week we started swimming. It was heaps of fun.

Risky Characters

The Habit of Mind we have been focusing on is Taking Responsible Risk. This week we discussed books which have risky characters. Everyone then chose their favourite book at identified the risky character. Here is Jakes one.

For our habits of mind we have been doing responsible risks. So for our habits of mind we got a picture of someone who takes responsible or irresponsible risks from a book because without a risk taker it wouldn't be a fun or interesting book. For my character I did Trap from the book Geronimo Stilton. I think that he is an irresponsible risk taker because he always does jokes on Geronimo that could be very frightening or could even injure him very badly. Trap does jokes like putting a whole bottle of chilly sauce in Geronimo's burger.

Trap, a very bad joker.


Yesterday we walked down to the Springvale Stadium for Badminton lessons. We are going every Wednesday for the next 6 weeks. Yesterday we reminded ourselves of some of the basic, how to hold a racket and that we only need to tap the shuttle. At the end we got to put up the nets and have a game. It was lots of fun.
