BTN Albert Einstein

Can you believe that only 100 years ago Albert Einstein told the world about relativity? Back then it was pretty complicated to understand but it made a massive impact on how we thought the world worked. He’s his life story and how he thought of this amazing discovery.

Albert Einstein is a guy with quirks. He didn’t like to wear socks, dropped out of high school, and inspired the looks of yoda but he’s one of the most famous scientists of all time (to be fair, he’s more famous for having some amazing ideas.) One of the most famous discovery of his is relativity. This was found on the 25th of November, 1915, when he showed the world what he was really capable of. This was a moment in history and this discovery still helps us today by getting a better understanding of the universe.

This particular man was born in Germany, 1879 and he was a normal kid. He like to play the violin, had pretty good grades and his best subject was maths. Unfortunately, he dropped out of high school at 15 and tried to get into university, but he failed the exams to get in. So he went to Switzerland and got into university there. He studied to be a teacher and as soon as he graduated, he found out that there wasn’t a job for him so he worked in a patent office. It’s around this time where his mind was ticking with impressive science ideas that he was working on.

1905 was the big break were he published some very important newspapers with a famous formula which he created ( ). But what he thought was his best/most important piece yet was in 1915, when he discovered relativity. It’s about space, time and talks about gravity.

 

And now, this experiment helped us explain the black holes, how time travel might actually work and how the universe was formed. It’s still helping in the subject’s physics and astronomy. Albert Einstein became famous once this was out, and not just in Switzerland, everywhere!

 

In 1921, this man won the Nobel Prize for physics. He has made a place in the history books and our life because we are still celebrating relativity 100 years later! But scientists say there is still more we don’t know about from this man’s thinking

I understand how Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize for physics. He figured out relativity!

I get how he wanted to start in Switzerland since he failed in his exams for uni in Germany. I get how you want a fresh beginning. 

What more don’t we know about Albert Einstein’s inventions and his thinking?

100wc The Creature

You know the phrase “Walking down memory lane”, well I’m doing that. Literally, I’m walking down my street thinking about the memories. The ones I will leaving. The out of date cottages, the flowers in the bushes. But I’m came to see one special thing in particular. The white creature. This creature has gone with me from thick and thin, and it’s never let me down at being there to support me. It’s going to be hard leaving everything and everyone but I’ll miss this creature the most. But it’s not the creature itself I will miss, it’s the memories I had with it.

BTN Paris Attacks

Around the world the news is spreading about Paris and the attacks. There have been some terrorist attacks in Paris and these terrorists have killed 129 people.

Last Friday night in Paris, three groups of terrorists sabotaged some bars and restaurants, a theater whilst in a rock concert and an international soccer stadium when a game was playing. 129 people were killed whilst these attacks and hundreds were injured.

The Islamic State (IS/ISIS) has claimed full responsibility for these attacks and also were responsible for an attack in Lebanon, which was a day earlier and killed 41 people.

In response to this news, the French police have been trying to find the terrorist’s involved (they blew themselves up) and are helping the people throughout the country. Also French planes have started bombing ISIS at the base of Syria. France believes that this will make the terrorists have a harder job at planning another attack. But the world is with France.

Barack Obama (America):“An attack not just on France but it’s an attack on the civilized world.”

Malcolm Turnbull (Australia): “To the people of France, I say on behalf of the Australian people, as we have on so many occasions in the past, we stand shoulder to shoulder with you.”

Also the world is showing Paris its support by putting up monuments and decorating buildings with the colors of the French flag which are blue, white and red.

 

I understand how Australia is staying side by side with Paris because if we have stuck up for them in the past, why not now?

I also get how the French people would be mad at IS but I don’t think its necessary to blow IS up.

 

One question I have is: Why did the terrorists attack Paris and not some other place in France or in the world?

March

(This isn’t my 100wc)

 

We marched in the mud, the young and the old.

We parade the streets, our heads held low.

We journey through the mountains, snow holding us down.

We tread the hills and tramp the ground.

We stride and strut through mainlands, the grass screams with death.

We stomp across the villages, knowing the life here is best.

We patrol the peasants with us, not understanding what they did.

We pound the pavement with our guns, our lives like a bid.

We moved out of base  and step out onto the battlefield.

 

Finally

The long wait is over.

We step into the land where everybody wants to be, knowing that we’re safe.

100wc How could something so tiny

I didn’t get it. How could something so tiny scare everyone? Well, all the girls at least. Which reminds me, I should write this story somewhere else, it’s WAY too noisy hear. Imagine 100 parrots squawking with fear. Well that’s what I’m hearing right now, except they’re girls and their screams are A LOT WORSE. Honestly, I’d take the parrots. Anyway, I should tell you why this story is about girls and parrots, or at least try to explain. See there is this tiny thing in the classroom that’s petrifying the girls, it’s actually quite funny, honestly. It’s a tiny parrot.

Remembrance Day/Lest We Forget

Today, we remember the people in WW1. The people who died for this country, who died for us. On the 11th of November 1918, this war started. World War 1, with Australia vs Gallipoli. This was a tragic war, with 156,000 wounded and 60,000 dead for Australia. On this day, we wear a red poppy to remember the soldiers. At 11am we have a minute of silence so we can remember them.

Thank you soldiers who fought for us. Thank you for the nurses who helped us. We shall never forget you and your courage. Thank you. Lest we forget.

100wc R.I.P

The bones of the money crumpled when you touched it. The expression of the monkeys face remains grim as it lies there, showing that he knew his death was coming. As it is no ordinary funeral, as the monkey would of had to be fully covered), he still was half covered and got the respect he needed his whole life. Not that old as well, but not too old. It was older than a baby, for sure. Fossils proved that it was a very brave monkey, fighting for its life as it knew it was going to die.
Rest in Peace, Little Money.

School Captain Application

Dear Classmates,

My name is Adriana and my family has been a part of Moonee Ponds Primary Community for the past 10 years. In this school I have been involved in the Green Team for 5 years as well as being the Green Team Captain for this year.

 

I have very good organisational skills. This was proved when I had to help organize a kindergarten disco. I had to help set up the place so all the activities were at the right place at the right time. This night ended up as a big success for the kids at this kindergarten and the parents there. It was also a really fun night. Also when I speak at assembly for Green Team, I organise what I am going to say and when. This is like when I write a few things for the newsletter about green team and I have to be organised with them. I also had to organise the meeting with them and what to do in that meeting. This proves that I care about being organised and always put %100 into trying to be.  I am prepared to organise the events of this school because I think that I am up to it.

 

I know that I will be good at communicating with the parents, teachers, students of this school and members of the wider community. I have experienced speaking with all of these types of people before. As for little kids, I have a buddy who I get along with really well. When she does miss her mum, I talk to her softly and calmly, telling her it’s all right and not to worry because she will see her mum after school. I am good with parents because I do talk to them at my mum’s kindergarten and at school. If there is something they should know about, I would tell them politely and they would be aware. Also for teachers, if there is something going on in the playground and I can’t fix it, I will go to an adult and tell them about the situation calmly.

 

I love giving things a go! If you go for it, you could find something really fun or interesting. I have giving many things a go in my lifetime, in and out of school. When I was looking for a hobby, I tried a lot of things to fill my time. Some of these things were writing little story’s (which I still do) or a complete different thing like joining a dance group. And some hobbies I still do like readying and imagining.  But I gave it all a go and don’t regret it because I like giving things a go and trying new things in life. It boost people’s confidents when you do something out of your comfort zone and I am confident enough for this role so I know I can be school captain. I am happy I give things a go and think that if I can do things that I don’t normally do that are out of my comfort zone, I could be good at giving things a go in the role of school captain.

Kind regards,

Adriana
