T20 Blast Cricket Clinic by Hayden and Darcy

The grade 4 students were luck enough to get to go to the T20 cricket clinic.

The grade 4 students did bowling and batting. The boys went in a boys group and the girls went in a girl group. First we did bowling they taught us how to bowl really easily. Then we played a game and we got into groups of 2 and the instructors gave the group a number like 1 2 3 4 and so on.

The coaches were Bob, Ash and Nick. Some people hit a 6 and some people hit little ones.

Other people could bowl really fast balls and some did normal bowls.

It was great fun doing the T20 blast cricket clinic.

 

 

Book Week Dress Up Day

There were Disney Characters, fairytale and nursery rhyme favourites, sporting heroes, cats, dogs and pigs and plenty of people asking “Where’s Wally?”  Some students from Hogwarts, a MInion, the Cat In The Hat, Puss in Boots and even Greg Heffley popped in for a visit. It was great to see so many kids in 4K dress up to celebrate the end of Book Week.

Camp by EJ

The 10th of August, 2015 is the day we have been waiting for and it is finally here.  We are going to camp at Phillip Island Adventure Resort.

We got to school and we waited for the school bell to go. We had to put our luggage bags outside the gym so it wouldn’t take up lots of space but we had to take our little bag into the gym with us to take on the bus to camp.

There should be our lunch and snack, the grade 4 or 3 camp book, with our pencil case, pencils, and pens in our bags on the bus. Well we’re finally on the bus. We get off at San Remo to have our snack and look at the pelicans and the seagulls but all the kids were feeding the seagulls their food so Ms Kelly said no one is allowed down on the grass area but after a while we went down where the Pelicans were and we were just in time for their feeding time.

When we went down to the sand the lady was throwing the fish near everyone and when she threw a fish near me it hit my face with its wing and I fell on my bottom on the rocks but it didn’t really hurt me at all.

So we eventually got on the bus but this time we didn’t stop to have anything to eat. We got to camp and then we ate the rest of the food in our bags. The activity I liked was low ropes. There was the balance beam and that is literally the only one activity I remember out of all of the activities in the whole low ropes but the most extremely hard (only for most of the boys) but mainly all the girls in every group got to do it but I don’t know what it is called but it was hard and outstandingly amazing at the low ropes.

 

Footy Clinic by Sanketh

Four weeks ago the SEDA Footy Clinic came back to our school. On the first week my activity was held in the new play area near the gym. I was in a group with my friends Hayden, Stevan P and Darcy. There were two mini groups in the whole  group. First we played Ship, Shark, Shore. Then we played a game called Real or Opposite, at least I think that’s what it’s called.

Three weeks ago the Footy Clinic came back to our school and I had to go with 4T  because some people in our grade had to do the English test, I wasn’t apart of the test, so that’s why I had to go with 4T. Firstly we did the Real or Opposite game again then we played golden child but with a Football!!! It’s crazy bonkers – it break’s the rules. I didn’t know how to play so this is what we had to do. First there are two teams, one hand balling and the second team is running. Firstly we were the hand balling team we got all of them OUT!!!!  We ran. I was second to run after Brooke, she made it then everyone on our team made it. The session was really fast and we had to go to our classroom.

Two weeks the footy clinic sadly did not come because it was raining so we were stuck inside doing work. It was also a wet day time table.

One week ago the Footy Clinic came back to our school. I was with my friends Hayden, Caleb. We played In and Out and we also played Golden Child. It was a fun experience.

Wakakirri By Jordy

On Tuesday the 4th of August, some of the grade 4, 5 and 6 students arrived at the Frankston Art Centre to perform their Wakakirri routine.

Once we found our dressing room, everyone put their bags somewhere and then we were off to do our dress rehearsal. Basically, what we do at a dress rehearsal is, well, you would run through your routine twice. The first time you dance it, you would do it without the lights and the smoke and on the second time you dance it (last time) you would do it full out with the lighting and the smoke.

Wakakirri is where lots of different schools come to a competition and compete against each other and they have to tell a story through dance. The signature item this year was a chicken and not many schools used it but we did.
Our story all starts when twins were born but sadly the mother doesn’t make it, so the father takes custody of the twins, but then the father gets sentenced to war, so the children got sent to an orphanage and get taken away by two different mothers (one rich, one poor) with each child not knowing that they have a twin sister.
Ten years later the rich and the poor have a street fight and the twins have no idea that they are fighting against each other. Luckily, the twins realise that the are twins and finally the war ends and everyone thought that “it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, we are all the same.” Our story was called “Together Divided”.
When it was time to perform, everybody was really, really excited to go on stage. We were so excited that we wouldn’t be quiet.
It was an magnificent experience to perform with all of my friends. I had a wonderful day and I hope everyone else who participated in Wakakirri did too.
We would like to thank Mrs Montgomery for being an awesome choreographer and for being there on the day and to Miss Quelch for also being a great choreographer as well, and last but not least Mr Kelly for encouraging us and being there on the day.
I hope everyone had a magnificent day!!!

Footy clinic by Puneet

image(20)We had footy clinic for 4K. We had split into 4 groups. For footy clinic we didn’t play the real game, we learnt skills and played games.

First we played footy island. The rules for the game are you should catch the ball when the person on the opposite side throws the football. Then you punch on the beanbag.

The next game we played was a different footy island. The rule for that game is when the teacher says to catch the ball you have to drop the ball, when the teacher says drop you have to catch the ball.

Radio Show by Nadia

A few months ago, a few of my friends and I were chosen to be a part of the 97.7fm Casey Radio Show. When I was first told about it I was very excited I was going to be on the Radio! But it was not that easy!

First my friend Jordy had to set up the google docs account. Each of my friends had too help write a script.

There were five segements, each segement was different. For example , the first segement was about getting to know each other, then inquiry for the next, thirdly interviews, then litracy and finally the conclusion of the show. Between the segements there was songs.

When we finished our scripts my friends and I were sent to the film studio (which is Mr Kelly’s room). We read our scripts on  the microphones. Everything was fine until the microphones broke!

It took a few days to fix up the microphones. We read our scripts once again and finally the show was finished!

On the 12th of August the radio show was on broadcast on the Casey Radio. All our work came to an end. I can not wait until it is our next radio show!
