EXT Paideia seminar

Inline image 4On Tuesday the year 5&6 Extension group had a paideia seminar, It was our 3rd one this year! The topic we had to talk about was "Is being civilise such a good thing". Our Paideia seminar began and Amira was first to speak. I think that I could do better on the next seminar because this seminar was kind of hard because I didn't know when to talk and the topic was kind of hard to me. I only spoke 5 or 6 times but I think that is a good thing some people only talked once or twice. I was really nervous because i thought My answer was going to be wrong but then I remembered that there are no right or wrong answers in the paideia seminar. Luckily I was prepared with a paragraph that I wrote about what civilisation means to me. overall I think that i did good and I think I did better than term one and maybe Just the same as term 2's Paideia seminar.

Task description: This is my reflection of my term 3 Extension Paideia seminar. It has my feelings and has what I did and what I could do better. I think I did really good and I hope I do better next time. 

Alien description

 Task description: This is My alien description presentation and it is all about me describing what the alien looks like. it is also trying to help me use descriptive writing.

Star dome

Have you been to stardome? Well Me and my classmates went to stardome and it was really cheap! We went there because our theme this term is all about space and star dome gave us more information about space. It is a small gallery and has a lot of things that are kid friendly.

But before all of that happened we went onto the park well at least the small park. It was cool because we also got to go on the flying fox. So then after 10 mins on the park we then lined up in our groups and My parent helper was my friend’s mum, her name was Lose. So we went in and it was a cool and small planetarium.

We had 15 mins of exploring the planetarium and it was cool because it had buttons that activated the machines. We were looking everywhere and heaps of the stuff were cool and have had a lot of information. Then after that 15 minutes we went into the space room and then we learned more about space and planets. Then we got handed an iPad and had to answer the questions and try and look for the answer in the planetarium.

So then after our scavenger hunt we had to line up again and then the fun bit happened. We went into the movie room and I got to say it was very cool. While we watched the movie in the dome it was kind of giving me a headache and not just me Mrs Stickland got movie sick.

I learnt that if you try and search for another planet it is gonna be worthless so the best option is just to stay with earth and just clean it up. I also learnt that a dirty snowball is also another name for comet.  It was pretty fun and cheap but the thing I love most was playing on the flying fox and learning with our teacher.

Task description: This is my recount about star dome and This is a late post and it and we actually went to stardome on Thursday last week.\
