When we were learning about
inventions, I made a project about a
famous Italian inventor name
Leonardo Da Vinci. The pacific topic
I did about was Flying Machines. I
got a very high mark for it!
Save Our Planet!
This term we learnt about the ways to Save Our Planet
and what are the causes and effects on our planet. It
was an eye opener for me. It taught me lots on about
what’s happening to our Earth. I now understand why
people are fearful of the future.
Camp was a highlight for this term. I loved every moment of
CAMP! It was exciting to escape from my house and also the
school work. (:
