Week 6- Stone Lion / My birthday

This week my class and the other class was reading a book called ‘The Stone Lion’. It was about this lonely lion who was cold hearted. He was cold hearted because he has never moved before, so all he thought about was himself and didn’t care if a little girl with a baby in her hand was cold and hungry. But one day, on a snowy day, the little girl came back with her little brothers in her hand. They were freezing, the baby was crying and she was broken. The Lion felt sad for them, he wanted to take them into the library to keep them warm but he couldn’t move. Then magically he moved, he stretched and roared. He leaped off where he was lying on and dragged the baby and the girl into the library. He then returned to where he was and then turned back into a statue. The following day bunch of people came and talked to him.

The story behind the story is that when you have a chance to help someone don’t waste it but use it, so if you help something great will happen to you.

Week 4 – Inquiry

This term 5/6’s have been focusing on our Inquiry unit, Energy. My energy topic is wind. Wind has been a great energy source for centuries even though wind was not used as electricity. wind was used for drying the clothes, windmills (that don’t generate electricity) grinding the grains and sailing ships.

I will learn more about wind power and share it more to everyone.

Emmaus Production

On the 20th of July, Yr. 5 and 6’s went to an Emmaus Production. The production was ‘Beauty and the Beast’, it was amazing! Us girls were screaming inside out. For some of us, it was the first time seeing beauty and the Beast. My favourite character was Lumiere, (the candle stick guy) he was the funniest character through out the play.

Last year, Yr. 6’s also went to an Emmaus Production. Last year Emmaus’s production was ‘Anything Goes’. It took 9 months for them to rehearse, making the crops and do all that stuff. I learnt that you’ve got to work in a team to accomplish anything.

 

 

About Beauty and the beast

 

Beauty and the Beast is basically about this horrible prince who was a cold-hearted meany and one day a witch came to his castle and gave him a rose but he was a heartless prince so he sent her away but all of a sudden she transformed into a beautiful enchantress! She casted a spell on him, he turned into an ugly beast, the only way he could become a handsome prince again was until he learnt to love. He thought that was impossible because first he was scary and ugly and he has never fallen in love.

My PASSION

Hi my name is Maryann. My passion is ACTING! When I grow up, I want to be an actor or a drama teacher.  My dream is to go up on stage and perform with my grandma.

I started to love acting when I was in Yr. 2 . My cousin’s friend went to a drama program. She then also started and after a week later, I started.

The Program is called ‘Helen O’ Grady’. Helen O’ Grady is a great program for young kids who would like to become an actor when they grow up. Helen O’ Grady also helps kids have more confident to stand up and talk to a crowd. It’s also a great program to make friends with kids from other schools.
