Week 6 entry by Aarya, Oneli and David.


Hi, my name is Aaryaa! Today I’m going to talk about our H.A.S.S Project. Our project is on sustainability. We have been researching 3 big questions & we are up to our 2nd big question: How can EMPS students manage their waste more sustainably?

To answer the big questions we had to answer several little questions such as:

  • What different types of waste are there at our school?
  • How much waste are we currently producing at EMPS?
  • How are we currently managing our waste?
  • And last but  not least, What solutions are you going to suggest for EMPS based on the information you have gathered?

Our task is to complete the sheet and then answer the big questions. I personally think this will be a fun task!

SEE YA! Aarya


Visual Art

Hi my name is Oneli and I’m going to talk about year 4 collaboration art. We have changed our form of art and I’m on to Aboriginal Art. Right now, my group is doing sand art. This is a very unique form of art that the native Australians used to do. When they finished, the would smooth it out so others wouldn’t see it.

Our task was to draw our bedrooms in the sand. We were sorted into groups and we took turns sharing. When we were all done. we got to share our work before wiping the sand clean.

This was a really fun task and a special thanks to the year 4 teachers for organising it.

Cheers, Oneli.

Visual Art – Cubism

Yesterday, Room 31 has been doing visual art. We’ve done pop art, cubism and Aboriginal art. The art that I am doing now is Cubism. Cubism includes characteristics such as more than one point of view, broken mirror effect and sophisticated lines.

Here are some examples of our first attempts.



Week 4 entry by Elissa, Lilly and Rosa.

Literary Recount
Our class has been learning about another type of recount. It`s called a literary recount.
A literary recount is a recount that can be make believe or something that has happened in your life.
We made sure they were interesting and detailed.
We made our own orientation for a literary recount using
• Who
• What
• When
• Where

It was really fun.

This year in maths we will be focusing on times tables but right now we are focusing on place value. We’re looking at putting numbers in the right place and how to pronounce and add big numbers properly.
