Australia day is on January 26th. Australia day used to be called foundation day. Australia day use to be on the closest Monday to Australia day. Will Australia day become invasion day? What would happen if Australia wasn’t discovered? I understand that Australia day is a day for that not everyone likes.

The Prompt is ladder goldfish flew brown slowly.

As I was walking along the beach a brown goldfish flew up into the sky and came at me. But it suddenly stopped and shot strait up in the sky but went up really slowly I found a ladder on the beach that was super long so I put it up against a big rock and climbed up the ladder to reach the fish but the ladder wasn’t long enough so I jumped off the top of the ladder and grabbed the fish and fell into the ocean and hit the water to hard and died a sudden death.

SRC speech

Hello 5/6a today I will be talking about why I would be a good src rep for this class.

I haven’t had the opportunity to be an SRC Rep yet at Moonee Ponds Primary, but I would like to given the opportunity this year to represent this class.

I believe the following traits are required for a good SRC representative to have.

I show good responsibility which is an important trait for an SRC rep.  I have shown this in the past when I have been a green team member and taken on full responsibility for the chickens and watering at different times.

I would also be a good representative for the class at the SRC meetings and would promise to take the class ideas to the meetings and bring new ideas back to the class for votes or questions

A good SRC rep is organised and if chosen to be the class representative I will do my best to always go to all meetings and follow up new ideas or questions from the class.

As a senior school rep, I would take the time to encourage and help the younger children at the src meeting and throughout the school. Throughout the year I would participate in all the fundraising and show leadership in the class and out. All of the traits I have just outlined are the traits I think I have and that would make a great src rep.

Thank you 5/6a these are the traits that you should look for in the person you vote for.


Australia is a country where everyone is equal. Democracy is the most common form of government.

The Greeks were the first people to use democracy. Are there any more countries under dictatorship in the world? How many countries are under complete monarchy? I understand that government is one of the most powerful systems in the world.

100 WC term 1 week 4

I was walking in the woods and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I looked around to see what was going on but all I could see was these weird men that looked like trees. So I kept going on my walk in the woods. I started hearing footsteps behind me as I was walking. I turned to look what was happening but all I could see were those weird tree men again. I got suspicious so I decided to play a little game with them. I started to walk again but then I found myself in bed it was all a dream.

reading reflection


What is the genre? How did you know? I thought the story was comedy because the author used different words that made the story funny in many different ways. The author added in different characters to make the story funny.  The main character liked to play pranks on his sister to make the story funny.

100 word challenge

I was moving very fast when a truck started coming at me. I see the red sign saying wrong way go back. I panicked as I tried to turn around, as the truck was getting closer. I tried to turn around but it was to late. The truck was just meters away from me. I put my foot on the accelerator to try and get away from the death ahead of me, when suddenly the truck veered to the left into the hill. As the truck hit a hill and rebounded off the side it hit my car and I died a sudden death.

my letter.

Hello Libby

I have lived across the road from the school my whole life. I grew up playing on the playground many years before I started prep. I learnt to ride my bike on the asphalt at the school. My family has been a part of MPPS since my sister was in prep 7 years ago.

I am 10 years old and have an older sister and a younger brother. My sister is an amazing swimmer at state level and spends a lot of time playing water polo. Her name is Lilly and just started year 7 at Rosehill secondary college. My brother is 5 years old and just started prep. His name is Logan, he is cute and adorable and he loves to talk and play a game of Uno. I have a black  and white cat called  batman who likes to visit the school a lot.

I like to play basketball and I follow the Houston Rockets in the NBA. I like to swim and play water polo. I started playing water polo because my cousin is on the Australian team and is hoping to go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

My grandparents all live outside of Melbourne.  Two of my grandparents live in America which is where my dad grew up.  I have been 5 times to see my grandparents and go to Disneyland. My other grandparents live in country Victoria in a small town called Myrtleford next to Bright. I like to visit them and help on the farm.

In the holidays we went to Cape Bridgewater for a long weekend. I spent a lot of time swimming and riding my bike and I liked to race my family on my bike. On a really hot day we went ice skating to cool down.

This year at school I am looking forward to school camp in Canberra. I also can’t wait to do the school swimming sports carnival. In class I would like to be challenged in Maths.
