BTN- Magna Carta

PINK- RECALLS           PURPLE- QUESTIONS

BLACK- UNDERSTANDINGS         BLUE- SUMMARY

 

This BTN was about a king of England. King Richard was a wonderful king. But his brother, king John nicknamed bad john, was an unfair cruel king. Lionheart was king for 10 years but unfortunately died and England was left with bad john as ruler. John made bad decisions and only thought about himself. Everyone in England was unhappy.

 

The people decided to talk to john about how he was treating the country and wanted to let him know that he’s not the only boss. They put together some rules (that of course John dis-obeyed) and wrote them down on paper which is known as the Magna Carta.

 

  • The magna carta influenced many rulers of other countries
  • King John ruled from 1199-1216
  • King Richard was nicknamed lion heart

 

  • I want to know why John stopped ruling. Did he die like all of his older brothers or did he quit.
  • Why was he chosen as king. Why wasn’t either of sisters chosen to rule.

 

 

  • I now understand why the Magna Carta was made, its importance around the world and how many people and leaders its inspired.

SRC Application

 

 

Hi everyone.  I am standing in front of you today to give the reasons why I would be a worthy candidate for the student representative council. First of all, I have got some experience with being a leader. I have been a part of green team in 2016 that this year I am green team captain. I have never been S.R.C but I think it would be a great experience and what better year to do it than year 6. SRC’s are obviously chosen because they are committed. They turn up to every meeting and whenever they are needed. They are optimistic. They are thankful they were chosen for the role and have appositive attitude. They show collaboration. They work well with others, include everyone and never put anyone down. They show organisation. They are always organised and are on the job before you explain it. They show responsibility. They are responsible and they are role models. They show leadership. They are leaders of the school. Students look up to them. Now I know I’ve said they show these traits but truth be told they live them. I live them as well. I live all 6 of them. I’m organised, responsible… but I’ve forgotten one very important trait. They are trustworthy. Their class trusts them. They send them to meetings to find out about upcoming events and fundraisers. They send them to share the classes ideas. They send them because they trust them. Before I end my speech here is a short quote asking for your vote.

Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader.

They set out to make a change

Its never about the role but always about the goal.

100 word challenge: Week 3 term 1- WE WERE MOVING VERY FAST WHEN…

 

 

Their hair was flying in the rush of the wind. Their screams fading away by the sound of the engine roaring. They were moving very fast when the car started speeding out of control. This was getting out of hand. The top of the hill was getting closer by the second. As soon as the car reached it would go plummeting down the other side and into the ocean. The sirens were blurring in the background. They had to stop. The T.V. suddenly switched channels. We couldn’t watch the end of the car chase. “Dad,” we all groaned.

Letter to Libby no.2

 

Dear Libby,

I am super excited to be in your class for my last year of primary school. I am excited to be learning new skills in your class and hopefully have heaps of fun. Here’s a little about me:

I have one sister named Bella in year 4 and a golden Labrador named George. I have been at MPPS for 3 years now and it has been a really great experience. My best friend is Sofia and is also in our class this year. We have a lot of fun together and I am glad I will be with her for my last year. We are also going to the same high school with two other friends in other classes. We will be going to Academy of Mary immaculate.

 

 

 

I love to dance, play guitar and listen to music. I have been dancing since I was 4 and have been playing guitar since I was 5 . My favourite singer is Taylor Swift and also like Little mix. My favourite dance is Brittany Raymond from ‘ The Next Step’ and I went to one of her shows for my friends  party. Here’s a story of what happened before the party. Sofia and I were going to her dad’s restaurant to set up for our best friends party and we passed the arts centre where the next step were performing. Because Sofia and I were so early we saw the cast get out of their bus and we took a photo with Brittany

 

 

Over the holidays I went to Byron bay. It was super fun (apart from driving up there) and we had an awesome time. For the first two nights up in Byron bay, which were Christmas eve and Christmas, we stayed in a caravan park. It was cool but super hot. After that we stayed in a massive house with all of my family so that’s 10 people staying in one house. After we went to Sydney. Here are some photos of me and my family having a blast:

     

 

I know you’ll make this year super memorable for me and I hope we have lots of fun.
