Jacko’s Footy

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to read a picture story book to our buddy’s grade. We will have to read it just before lunch. I have chosen “Jacksons Footy”

My goal for this book is to make sure to slow down and use more expression.

Sovereign hill Creative Commons

We are pretending to be children from the 1850’s.

Today we had to find our mother and fathers occupation for Sovereign Hill. My Fathers a brewer and my Mother is a soap maker. We had to attribute the photos and where we got the photos from.

The first one is from clickamericana.com

The second one is from cub.com.au

We also had to show a photo of what boat we came out on. I came out on Marco Polo. This is a photo of he ship I cane out on. I got this image off Wikipedia, but it didn’t come from there. They also attributed the photo which has come from :Marcopoloclipper.jpg

 

 

 

The rule of thirds

The rule of thirds you ask, what is it. Well I’ll tell you. The rule of thirds is to break an image down into thirds, both horizontally and vertically so that you have 9 parts. Click here to see more info.

My first photo is a photo of the tunnel, this shows the rule of thirds because the tunnel makes points around the circle⭕️. In prep this used to be where I played most of the time, it was really cool to sit in there.

My second photo is a photo of seats that are under the shade🌳🌲and out of the way, we normally just sit and talk here and play truth or dare or would you rather. The rule of thirds follows the tree and the seats.

 

 

 

 

 

Song writing

This week in class we had to make a poem or song using Personification and figurative language. Every got confused between rhyming and similies. I decided to do it with Kane. Instead of doing a song we did a rap about a devil in Bali who is gnarly and has a Ferrari. This is what we have so far:

“knock knock its the devil from another level, he’s a part boy always getting gnarly in Bali with his Ferrari.

Splashing the passion Mashing the fashion and kicking magic like a field goal.”

figurative language is when you are telling something like “the tree looked at me like a devil” but a tree can’t look at you like a devil can it. We used this website called the songs sphere click on the image to go to the website.
