# Multiplication

This term in numeracy we are learning multiplication and in multiplication we are learning different ways you can call and name multiplication. You can call it times, multiply and groups of. We are also learning how to show it. It is shown using skip counting, arrays, numbers and groups of. For example 5×5=                =25. This is an         array.

Multiplication has the symbol X and is the opposite of division.

Here are some examples of multiplication:

7×5=35

9×2=18

10×4=40

7×4=28

I practice my multiplication skills by doing times tables, it is good fun.

# My Wonderful Exciting Holidays

During the school holidays we went to the Gold Coast and stayed at Sea World Resort for the first 4 nights. We arrived on Sunday night, and on Monday wasted no time in exploring to Sea World. We saw stingrays, dolphins, sharks, heaps of fish in different shapes and sizes, penguins and a couple of very playful polar bears.

On Tuesday we returned to Sea World and mainly went on the rides. Marni, Dad and I went on the Vikings Revenge and the Storm Coaster but only Dad and I went on the Jet Rescue. (Mum didn’t go on any of them).

On Wednesday we went back to Sea World again for the last time, where we had a dolphin adventure. We hopped in the water with Tallulah the dolphin and we got to feet and patted her. After being shown by the dolphin trainer what to do, Tallulah responded to our instructions to jump, wave and speak to us. She felt smooth and like rubber. That was my favourite thing on our holiday.

We also went on the Vikings revenge. Dad, Marni and I went on the Storm Coaster and Marni came on the Jet Rescue with us. We also went to Castaway Bay where Dad, Marni and I scaled a high ropes course. It also had a playground that was extremely hard to get out of. So altogether Sea World was 10/10.

On Thursday we checked out of Sea World Resort and checked into The Towers of Chevron Renaissance in Surfers Paradise. We were on the 37th floor where we had spectacular views of the Coast.

On Friday we went to Movie World. I didn’t go on any rides because they all looked too scary. Dad and Marni went on the Superman Escape. Marni and I went in the wave pool. Movie world was really good but I would rate it an 8 and a half out of 10.

On Saturday we went to watch North Melbourne vs Gold Coast Suns. Unfortunately North Melbourne lost by more than 50 points but it was nice to be at a different stadium (Simonds Stadium)

On Sunday we caught a tram to Broadbeach. The tram took 10 minutes and it then took us over an hour to walk back. We stopped at a very big park. It was really fun because it had a really long slide and a flying fox. That evening we went out for dinner at an Italian restaurant. It was called Costa D’oro. I had a chicken schnitzel and it was very yummy.

On Monday we went to Wet ‘n’ Wild and we went on lots of rides. Dad, Marni and I went on the Tornado and the Constrictor, and with Mum we all went on River Rapids, Mammoth Falls and Aqua 8 Super Racer rides. So I say 10/10 for Wet ‘n’ Wild.

On Tuesday it was time to leave the sunny hot Gold Coast and go back to freezing cold Melbourne. It was nice to be home but I miss the sunny weather.

So Gold Coast was definitely one of the best holidays EVER!!!!

# The Make-Up Disaster

A little girl in USA was opening her birthday present. It was a makeup kit. It had black /blue mascara and pink/red/cream blush and red pink orange lip stick. She took it to school to show her friends what she got. When she got to school she shared it. Five boys were really nasty to her.

1 boy stole the black mascara. 1 boy stole the red lip stick. 1 boy stole blue mascara. 1 boy stole orange lip stick. 1 boy stole cream blush. She told the yard duty teacher. The teacher found the five boys and told them to give it back to her. They gave all the makeup back. And said sorry.

# School Choir

How do you feel to be on stage and in front of everyone and singing?

Well I love to sing and be on stage it feels awesome!!!!! When I was about to go on stage I took a big deep breath in and out.

At my school, Killara Primary School, in Sunbury, I have had the opportunity to sing in the schools music class, with Kelli. She is a fantastic music teacher as I learn all the different songs and singing notes.

This year I got to sing in front of the whole school. This was special as it was about ANZAC Day. I got to sing Australia Remembers and The Spirit of the ANZACS it was great and everyone clapped after we finished.

Paper Planes and origami

Who doesn’t like to play with paper planes? There are gliders and super planes and kites and much more. I know how to make a rotor copter. Paper planes are awesome there are racers and they do tricks.

Now we will talk about origami. Origami is folded paper made in to birds and boats and other things. It is too beautiful and it is fragile and it is hard to make.

• # Hercules

By Rabia

Crash, as the blades of the swords could be heard from a mile away. Did you know they used real swords in the play? There was lot’ s of fighting in the play. Hercules was really strong and brave. But in every story, there is always a sad part, for Hercules it was his tragic separation from his parents when he was a baby. He felt really alone and sad a lot of the time. He missed his parents. But every story has a happy ending as well. For Hercules it was that he found his parents in the end. I loved the play a lot.
