the end of the beggining

It’s the end of 2016 and the end of each grade six students last day at primary school. I have been in Mr. Gibson’s class for 3 years now and will miss the school inevitably. I will miss the Teachers the people and mini (our class turtle) but mostly I will miss the place.  one of my favorite people john green once said ” how strange and lovely it is to be anything at all” indeed it is


Goodbye RCPS.

Lego robotics 2016!!!

Last week in mu7 we started doing lego robotics. We had the choice to do a dance bot, a sumo bot or a line tracking bot. The sumo bots get a 1 metre diameter circle. If it goes out of the circle the robot is disqualified. If the robot gets pushed out of the circle by the other robot the robot who pushed it out of the circle wins!

To win a dance bot comp you must follow the beat and stay within the 3 metro diameter
circle. Tracker bots must simply follow a line. The better your robot does the harder the line gets till there is only one robot left, the reigning champion!!!

100 Story Building




On the second last day of term 2 MU7 went to the 100 Story Building. We caught a train to Footscray with BU1. We walked with  BU1 to the 100 Story Building and then walked all the way to the Footscray Market. We did a scavenger hunt in groups and had to find different things at different shops and record it. When we had finished we walked back to the 100 Story Building and waited for BU1 to exit the building then we went inside. We got to write comic books with heroes and villains. We saw a lot of books, a story vending machine and loads more. We had so much fun and hope to go there again soon.
