Music activities

This week we have started our music activities. For some the questions we have to perform or design a poster about something. We have been given different sheets to work on.We will be studying new music and new bands some of us haven't even heard of. We got three weeks to finish one activity sheet then the other sheet. This will be fun for some of us, some of us might even come as our favourite singer or band. To get a good score you will have to pass with a score of 35 or over.

Topics for term 4

At the start of term 4, room 12 will be getting ready for presenting speeches. Instead of wearable arts, we will be starting music. We will be making our own kind of music by using the play station 2 in our classroom. Most people in our classroom are looking forward to this new subject. We will be also doing kitchen chemistry for science. Mr Madge tells us there could be some big bangs!

Term 3 Incentive Day

Yesterday in room 12 we had our incentive day. To be able to participate we have to earn the right to play. We have to work on our spelling, completing work on time, following instructions and being organised.
We had Nintendo Wii, Nintendo ds, singstar, connect four and much more
Here is a photo of our class Connect four Champion, Rachael. Our Singstar champion was a complete shock but not to the winner. Our champion is our teacher Mr Madge. He certainly sings flat but he sure knows how to hold a note.

Wearable arts

So far in wearable arts we have done four kinds of designs. They were called, Pla-it cool, that's a wrap, the simple sandwich and the twist and shout.
To make it to incentive day we have to make them to a high enough standard.
We had to make at least one of every sort. They were all pretty easy once you got the hang of it.
