My smart learning goal

I have identified that I need to work on being responsible for my belongings. I chose this behaviour because when I get to school I am always loosing things like pencil’s and other school things. I will work on my goal by making sure my toolbox and my locker tub is tidy. Hopfully I achieve this goal.



Term 3 S.M.A.R.T Learning Goal’s

In year 5 the teacher expects you to be well and truly past year 3 and 4 so that means that you can set high expectations and to set your grade 5 smart learning goals.

Having smart learning goals helps me identifie the areas of learning that I need improving on. To set a goal I have to see what I need to improve on.

The first process that I started with was our S.W.O.T analysis. This stands for  strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. I learnt that a smart learning goal is expectations that you set for yourself. I think having smart learning goals are really important because without smart learning goals how are you going to strive for accuracy without anything to strive for.

Jeremy’s Adventure

On the 29th of July a man named Jeremy came to our school. Jeremy is a motivational speaker. Today Jeremy shared with us his journey around the world on his bike. Jeremy showed us all the wonderful pictures step by step and told us where he rode to, how hard it was and how many friends he made on his trip. For Jeremy’s practise he rode to work 1  time a week, then 2 times a week then, 3, 4 and then 5 times a week .Jeremy road from Europe to Asia and then the last country New Zealand .The reason why Jeremy did it is for a heart charity and for his family. Jeremy rode through many rough conditions like snow, sand storms and hot deserts. Everyone was shocked when he said that he rode in snow and other hard and challenging conditions .On the way Jeremy come across bears, wolves and snakes. When Jeremy was in Japan he was riding on a rode through a forest when he came across 3 BEARS! If I was Jeremy I would be so scared if I saw the three big bears 20 meters .When Jeremy was in Iran every one offered Jeremy food. One of Jeremy’s message in his trip was to never doubt yourself.  Some nights in Turkey when it was minus -30 at night Jeremy talked to the locals by hand to see if he can stay the night with them. When Jeremy reached North Korea he could not ride through the country because of fighting. When Jeremy was in Japan he camped at a normal park but he had to tie his bike to his tent so if someone tried to take it he would feel a tug of the tent. While Jeremy was on his trip someone tried to steal his camera but luckily Jeremy was to strong and ran away. When Jeremy was showing us his pictures he said that his favourite scene on his trip was when he is about to ride up a snowy mountain in Turkey. At the end of the day everyone wanted to no more about Jeremy.

Where in the world

On Friday our class had a practice of our new project NGPS amazing cyber race. But it was in Echuca. We had to find accommodation and we had to explore Echuca like having tea, mini golf and going on a paddle steamer on the Murray river.

the most challenging part was trying to find the scenic Murray river cruise because we could not find the right one because they were so dear. I learnt that on restaurant websites I found out that they had menus and specials. I also learnt that not all website were helpful and other websites had a lot of details. I and Hamish worked really well together because at one stage I was on the internet searching for websites while Hamish was typing the cost of restaurants. I can’t wait until we start the real project.

The Court Jester

On the last day of school for term 2 all of the grade five’s were aloud to watch a movie. I was not a normal movie. Our teachers said that the movie was made in the late 1950’s.But then everyone was shocked because they all thinked that it would not have any colour or any special effects. When the movie started it had colour and half way through the movie we saw the unexspected because their was a special effect so now I will show you the full recap of the movie.

I have been asked to review the movie The Court Jester. It was fimled in Palos Verdes, California, USA at the Paramount studios. Directed by Melvin frank and Norman Panama and starring Danny Kaye, Glynis Johns, Basil Rathbone, Angela Lansbury amd Cecil Parker.

The Court Jester is a story about Kings, knights, princces, jesters and baby’s. At the start of the movie the is a character called the Black Fox. The Black Fox so the Black Fox try’s to get a baby that has a purple fower just above it’s buttocks and it means that is the next king. So all of the knights have been asked to try and get the baby to give it back to the king. In the movie there is a jester but one day the jester comes past a man but then the man drags of the real Jester and hits so te man puts on the Jesters clothes so their is a new Jester. So the new Jester and a girl go try to save the baby.

In the movie Court Jester is Gacimo the new Jester. The reason why Gacimo the new Jester is my favourite because he is funny when he sings the songs to the King and he said a lot of funny lines in the movie. Gacimo is also humerouse and brave because he will stand up for a fight and he would do whatever it takes to save something.

Famouse lines from The Court Jester. Hawkins:  I’ve got it! I’ve got it! The pellet with the poison’s in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right? Griselda: Right. But there’s been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace! In the movie The Court Jester I think that it was a very good movie and i reccamend it for 9 years and above so they can understand the movie and I rate it a 8/10.
