Today was Election Day. The grade 4s,5s and 6s voted for the year 6 party’s. If your group won you could talk to the principal and vice principal about fundraising for your policy’s.
Free Fun Friday came first with 111 votes after 7 counts, using the preferential voting system. My political party was called PRO, we came third overall with 59 out of 210 votes.
I think that we came third because we gave out a lot of information and listed specifically what we wanted to do and how we can do it. We came first in our class though so I’m happy
I chose to do my cereal box presentation on Charlie Sutton. I think he shows the Australian qualitys, A strong belief in fair play and a strong sense of mateship.
Today we finished our class novel ‘The Night They Stormed Eureka’. This is the work I did in the book.
The questions I were :What happened with the Hotel? Why did it end that way?
For our Sovereign Hill letter we have to include how we got to Australia. I chose the Marco Polo, which goes from Liverpool to Melbourne in 1852.
