This week in the Seniors, we did an art piece that has a picture of an oil lamp.
Oil lamps were used in the 1860s and were made by using whale oil and burning fluid (a volatile and dangerous mix of turpentine and alcohol) were the primary sources of lighting.
Materials to make a beautiful art piece of an oil lamp:Chalk:Yellow,orange, red for the flame and light, Blue, Red, orange, yellow for the flame, white or silver oil pastel for the outing of the oil lamp, A4 black paper and a pencil.
It was very fun to make it and I think everyone did a good job!

My favourite part of the week is showing Red Team their dance for twilight sport.
I’m not a red sports Leader but I’m just a helper and it’s really fun.
Red Team are doing an amazing job doing the dance and I hope they can do better on Sports night.
On Tuesday, it was the Gr.6s Leadership Day.
The Gr. 6s played and did Leadership activities and it was fun and interesting.
The best bit of Leadership Day was the food.It was delicious having fruit, other sweet food and potato cake with chips.It was a very fun week and I can’t wait for next week.
For about 3 days I went to Queensland for my Grandpa’s birthday.
- The best part was when my family celebrated My Grandpa’s birthday with all the food, having fun and sleeping.
- The funniest thing was nothing really much.
- The hardest part was trying to help my cousin to paddle the canoe.
- Something I learned was never share the same room with my relatives when they are sleeping because they snore.
- Someone I got to know better was how my relatives sleep
- Something that surprised me was my Grandpa and Grandma didn’t do much
- The Most memorable part of my holiday was my Grandpa’s birthday and everyone having fun
This Term, the Seniors are all learning about Geography and Sustainability.
We have to learn 2 countries and see if they are different or similar of the ways they control their country.
So far, I’ve learnt so much about Argentina and Austria of how they control their environment.They are very different from each other but Air pollution is their environmental problem they both have in common.
For this Term’s Inquiry unit, all the Seniors have been learning about Australian Politics.
I found out that Stanley Melbourne Bruce was the 8th prime minister of Australia, he made government management of Australia’s interests and he recommend Australia in shaping British Imperial foreign policy.
Democracy is a system of the population from each state to elect a representative.
Federal, State and Local are the 3 levels of government in Australia. by helping Australian government.
During the Term, we have watched BTN videos about parliament and they give us lots of information about Parliament, which is where political people write and discuss about laws, rules and changes.
In the past of voting, people were only allowed to vote at the age of 21, women weren’t allowed to vote ,nor were aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders unless they were in the army (after 1962). Now they let aboriginals vote and since 1977, they allow voting from the age of 18.
Learning new stuff about Politics was the best!
Today in maths is graphing,our focus is how many votes and seats from the federal elections.
Here is mine,Liberal is the winner and The Greens have the least amount of seats.Why did people voted for Liberal?
Address: St Luke’s Primary School blackburn sth
Class: Senior S
Opening day:Friday 5th August 9:50am
In Victoria Australia Blackburn sth a cafe called Senior S foods.Seeing the dishes looked OK but when you put it in your mouth it feels like rainbows in your mouth just wonderous. The food felt dry and wet at start but the dips smelt very different with each other and didn’t feel right.It was normal food snacks right in front of me,just crackers,carrots and blueberries being eaten 30times bigger tan then.Crackers mixed in dip was the best because the crunch and sauce was just tangy and nice.
Vegetables and the veggie dips just taste 2times better by itself. The juicy sweetness of the dish was delectable.That’s why you should come to Senior S cafe!
Note:Jasmine ate a blueberry with hmmous and her face looked sour and red.
I think she didn’t enjoy it.
If you want to see her go to Jazzy’s jellybeans
Today all the Seniors made Picture books.
We all had to read all the picture story books to the preps and juniors,I think all of the preps and juniors enjoyed our picture book.
I hope we will do it again
