You may have heard of the popular book series ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’, we are proud to release the 5/6M spinoff ‘Diary of a 5/6M student’ created by Makalya and Aimee! We hope you enjoy!
Friday, August 23rd 2019!
So you probably know how the morning drill works. Your parents would drop you off to school, and sometimes when you have extra time, you can do things with your friends! Like talking about how annoying your siblings are, but the first bell goes at 8:30, and let’s say it’s probably like 8:15. So you just wait ...keep on waiting and waiting… and we still wait until it’s finally 8:30!
So you go to the classroom and we would say,“phew! I don’t have to be embarrassed by my MUM! She always embarrasses me in front of my friends!”. Usually Mr McDonough opens the door and smiles or says “Hi!” or like “Good morning Aimee and Makayla!”, but Mrs Caspersz is here today because Mr McDonough’s wife had a baby!
Once the bell strikes 8:30am, that's when the first bell rings for school. Our classroom is in front of the eating area, so it’s really crowded there, And people always push to go past the gate and we get really annoyed! When everything settles,we FINALLY go to our friends and say “Hey, Sorry we are late. Everyone keeps on rushing out and I'm SO ANNOYED!”.
We like playing uno with friends and it becomes really serious when I play. We turn it into a real game using my imagination! (We really SMASH EM! Like really, smash them ... Ok I don’t think you get it.
We play for awhile till the second bell rings at 8:45 ,It was A LOT of fun.Then we go into a circle and pray, our prayer monitors run this. Miss Caspersz quietens us down. Once we settle, the Prayer happens!We have this thing where we have a donation box (Caritas) and pass it around the circle and you can even put money inside it to make donations to the homeless(and also if anyone has any special intentions.)
Then we surround Mrs Caspersz to do the roll or to see who is here or not. When we are done with that we form a circle and we greet each other. Everyone comes up with a really fun Greeting, like “Ahoy mate” or Say your greeting in a different language and like “Greetings my fRiEnD!”
Today we have reading groups if you don't know what reading groups are it's a thing where you are put into groups so you can learn more of your reading skills. We read about that and how the history of using communication can . Alfred Traeger made a powered radio including
morse code.(REALLY COOL! But can’t you get tired of working out your legs)
Later on we did writing ,and we looked at the features of persuasive writing. We also looked at different letters to the editor and how the letter has different features and a specific style of writing. We do pretty good at that not gonna lie, Then we share our writing as a group.
SNACK TIMEEEEE(our favourite part of the day)
But then, the most Evil part ...really...really...really...REALLY, Loud bell.
In Maths we looked at the independent and dependent events and the different chances of an event occurring. It was really fun! The teacher made it amazing, so WE learnt so much.(Definitely) )It would be an honour to tell you what we actually did ( I sound so elegant* ). So we predicted how many doubles a dice would make PS: we had to do it 60 times.
Then we had SWIMMING! We started swimming this Monday, and it was AMAZING! We did cool kicks like dolphin kick, Butterfly , Freestyle, backstroke, all that kind of stuff. Except I just hurt my knee on the wall
After swimming we read a book for Book Week called The Girl on Wire, it was AMAZING! (kinda deep and also left us hanging with Questions! ) but it made us feel more serious with life it really gave a great moral to us. This book we read was amazing (very motivational). We read it again to deepen our understanding then we shared our thoughts as a whole class with Ms Caspersz.
Well it’s the end of the day (kinda happy because I get to sleep and eat food!)
We go back to the circle and do our Prayer again. The rule is to do the prayer in the morning, and before we go home! And then! We go outside (Normally everyone goes running out like mad, and we get very annoyed! ;-;) Get the drill?
Sincerely 5/6M 👋
