The Roald Dahl Classic, Fantastic Mr Fox

It’s going to be really great reading Fantastic Mr Fox by Roahl Dahl. Today we started and we got to chapter 4. My teacher Mrs Harris wants us to do some inferences.

Down in the valley, there were three farms. The owners of these farms had done well.’ I think it said the farmers had done well because they were really rich and their farm was working the way they planed.

‘I can smell these goons a mile away. I can smell one from the other. In my head this meant that Mr Fox thought they were silly people and he could clearly tell if the farmers were there or not.

Why do you think Mr. Fox was always especially careful when coming out of his hole? I think mr fox was especially careful coming out of his hole because the farmers hate him the might want to kill him so he makes sure no one is in sight.

“It will never grow again,” said Mr. Fox. “I shall be tail-less for the rest of my life.” He looked very glum. What does the word glum mean? I know glum is a bad mood, you become sad and don’t really talk to other people.

Thanks for reading, Ruby.

What Anzac Day Means To Me

imageAnzac Day is known worldwide but what does it really mean to me? Young men went to war thinking ” adventure ” but what they had in mind was completely different to reality! They left a perfect life and a happy home just for us.

We remember them with the rising sun, a poppy, a footy game between Essendon and Collingwood even services and marches. All those things we have the chance to go to, they make the time to really think about what they have done for their country’s rights.
We wake up at the break of day to refresh our mind about their courage, persistence and compassion for each other.

Blood stains that battle field of Gallipoli, their crosses will never fade and those faces… We will always remember and never forget. If Australian men can give up their lives then we can at least remember. We are honoured to be living in Australia. 100 years later, LEST WE FORGET.

An ANZAC Tale

War is declared in 1914 and two Aussie mates want to join the adventure. The soon to be called ANZACS ran up the cliffs of Gallipoli, many died but three new friends Roy, Wally and Tom try to survive. When the 9 hour armistice comes the Turks and Aussies traded their goods. ( the Turks thought no good of the bully beef!!) This touching story shows just how much mateship and courage these men had to get them through the Great War.

This mixed genre book, in my opinion, is a great book for older primary school kids and above because some sections of the book could be confronting. The illustrations in this book are very detailed and they show a lot of effort.
The author Ruth Starke has completely changed how I thought about Anzac Day. All together I rate this book and 8/10 because their are some bits that I didn’t understand and I think other people wouldn’t understand either.

My Learning Goals

We do learning goals so we can become better in subjects were not so confident with. There are short term goals and long term goals. A short term goal may take a week but a long term goal takes at least a term.
My reading goal
My reading goal is to explore character traits, this will help me understand why characters are acting in a certain way. I could probably complete this goal with in a couple of weeks. My long term goal is to have stamina. I can only read without being distracted for about an 10 minutes that’s why I think it would be a good goal.

My Maths goal
My maths goal is to learn my 3 and 4 times tables, I could achieve this in around a month. My long term goal is to become quicker and accurate in my times tables. This may take me at least two terms!!!

My you can do it goal is to get along better with people who don’t really like me.
