Today was Shrove Tuesday. Students were asked to bring in a gold coin donation for a pancake prepared by our wonderful parents from the Nativity CRIB.
The day before Lent starts is Shrove Tuesday. This day was traditionally the last chance to use up the foods Christians would not be eating during Lent.
You can see for yourselves below that the pancakes were a huge success and it was nice to know that the money was going towards raising money for Project Compassion.
Hi today I’m talking about my dream bedroom with Alana. We will have a T.V and a couch. The T.V. is a plasma T.V. which is also known as a touch screen. The couch can fit two people. The arch is white. We made drink bottles for each other and we made our room in 30 minutes. It was hard but we did it.
It was fun working with Alana and it was hard at times, but we did it.
My favourite part of the room is the toothpaste walls, because you never have to go out and buy toothpaste. I like the sofa bed, because during the day you can use it as a sofa, at night you can use it as a bed. We have also got two pet chiwawas called Chewey and Pom-pom. They are so cute, but they keep weeing and pooing everywhere, but since we have lots of doors and windows the dogs can walk out whenever they need to do their business. The last thing we have got in our room is our smiley face rug, it is really fluffy and it talks to you.
Well my dream bedroom is like a mini mansion, but it’s way too small for a mansion, because it’s only a one story. Oh yeah I forgot my name is Alana and I am going to share my house today. My house is a one story and my walls are white with little bits of black. In my house there is a T.V. It’s a plasma T.V and a touch screen. It’s so cool that I nearly watch T.V all day. My favourite show that I would watch all day would be life with boys. Oh yeah, no boys are allowed in my bedroom and no one else but me and my friends which are Emily, Mia,Niamh,Jasmine,Elissa and that’s all that is allowed to come in. Now let’s get back to my bedroom. It has a double bed in it and it has a two drink bottles. The lights are on either side and it’s got to have a door right, so it has a door and a welcome mat as well. It has to say welcome right, so yeah. Oh yeah it also has a really cool and I mean really cool part of the house and it is the…………………T.Vs of course. I have one in my room and one outside of my room as well. I find that really cool, because if you don’t then you don’t have a taste in design and tech, but to be honest I think most people would find it really dumb. It’s not like really cool but it’s just to make it really interesting ok, so you don’t need to think that it’s really awesome ok. Back to my room! My room is special to me, because it’s my dream bedroom and a dream bedroom is like something that you dream of having. I dream I have this room. It has two T.Vs, two drink bottles and also two lights and they are not just any lights they are really cool lights. Do you want to know how? It’s a lava lamp and its real lava. It’s a totally awesome bedroom, so bye bye.
My Low Gravity Room
This is my low gravity room. In this room the gravity is extremely low, so everything is floating. This is because my bedroom is up in space, so if you go in remember to wear a gas mask.
In this room there is a floating bed, desk, ottoman, and bedside table. As you can see everything is blue, white and green. You may have seen a floating bed a little bit like it on the block.
So that is my dream bedroom and I wish to have something just like it in the future (If I can’t get the whole room I really want the bed!).
My Dream Bedroom
My dream bedroom was done on Build with Chrome with Mia. The double desk was for Mia and I, so that we can do our homework. The inbuilt lights on both sides are for giving more light at the desk. The laptop was for school work and computer games. The beds are the sort of beds Mia and I would want. The bedside table is a design that Mia and I liked. The lamp on top of the bedside table is a crayon design. The drink bottle was for if we got thirsty in the night. The mats were to make the floor more funky. The little boxes were for little items that we would like to keep safe.
We have been focusing on different celebrations. This week the children participated in Carnevale activities. They played bocce, made Carnevale masks, made pasta and learnt Italian songs. A special thanks to Mrs Hamilton, Mrs Press and Mrs Koukourou for all their help. It was a successful afternoon and the children enjoyed the activities.
We have been exploring Australia. The children were given a task of creating Australia using play dough. Many used an atlas and some even created the world.
Lately in science we have been working on a unit called ‘Melting Moments’. As one of our activities we had to get into groups and experiment on melting things in the heat, such as:
A metal spoon, water, honey, chocolate buds and vegetable oil. We had to leave them in the sun for five minutes without touching them. The chocolate melted the best out of everything, but it must be impossible for us to melt the spoon in five minutes with the sun!
Last Friday our class held our SLT (Student Representative Team) elections. Students nominated themselves and gave a talk to the class about how they possess the qualities that would address the role of an SLT. Below is a commitment statement that our SLT representatives make when they begin their role.
SLT Commitment Statement
I will listen and share ideas and information with my class.
I will act to help people feel safe and happy.
I will encourage everyone to look after our school environment.
I will help to make Nativity and our Campus a great place to play, grow and learn for everyone.
After our secret ballot it was decided that the following people would be our SLT representatives for this year.
Term 1 and 2
Term 3 and 4
Congratulations to our SLT representatives. We are sure you are going to do an excellent job. We also congratulate Phoebe, Mia, Gabi and Matthew Pi, who were selected as our deputy SLT representatives.
Can you see your tray?
My desk has never looked so tidy. Let’s hope it stays that way!
This is where the Year 3s will be sitting in week 1. Where will the year 4s be sitting? We change table spots usually every week, so that we get to know everyone in our class.

Once upon a time Brad, Matthew and Steven were home alone. It was a cold and windy Friday night. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door.
Brad opened the door very slowly, but when it was fully open it was a slimy man eating tiger. Brad quickiy shut the door, and ran to the front room. Brad told his brother’s but they didnt believe him.
There was another knock , so Steven went to get the door , but when he opened it, there was a hippo, it had five arm’s and six leg’s. Then he slamed the door shut. He ran back to the living room. Matthew shouted, “call 000″, So they did. Ten minute’s later the Police couldn’t find them.
Then there was another knock on the door, so Matthew opened the door, It was only Mum and Dad .The next day it was my Birthday.Brad had a big party Brad invited all his friend’s. Then Brad found out that it was only his friends dressing up. They thought it was funny.
