Tech Fest

On Monday 16 of December the year 5 and 6’s did a Tech Fest. Mrs Quealy put it all together and everyone thought it was brilliant. In HSIE we where learning about The Daintree Rainforest or a Coral Reef ecosystem, we had 7 essential question to answer and we got a grade on all of them, then after we got a overall mark. I was in a group with Emma and Emily we studied the The Daintree Rainforest. On Monday we presented our presentation and the parents could come and watch, also the year 4’s and 6’s watched. Our group presented first and we presented most of our essential questions. The next day Mrs Quealy gave as a mark and my group where so exited because we got an A. Mrs Quealy said that we presented really well and that our presentation was BRILLIANT!!!!

“Neptune’s Challenge” By Wendy Busby

This term year 5 have been reading “Neptune’s Challenge” By Wendy Busby. Today we finished the book and I thought it was excellent. Year 5 had so much fun reading it! Some parts of the story were really said, and the other parts of the story were happy.  the novel is about a girl named Charlotte who goes snorkeling with her dad in the Great Barrier Reef, then a tsunami came and it knocked Charlotte out. Charlotte’s dad was fine but he could not find Charlotte anywhere and he was very worried about her. Then and a huge turtle rescued Charlotte and placed her on a small island. When Charlotte woke up she found a pelican named Bertha, then Charlotte was very amazed because Bertha could talk. Then a man appeared and his name is Neptune, Neptune tells Charlotte that she has been chosen to be a mermaid and save the Great Barrier Reef from the crown of thorns starfish because they are destroying the Reef. Charlotte decides to become a mermaid and help save the Reef. In her journey Charlotte meets lots of amazing sea animals and becomes friends with them. 

In the end Charlotte has a choice if she wants to become a human again or stay as a mermaid. Charlotte decides to stay as a mermaid because all of the friends are so close to her now and there like family to her, so I think her decision of staying a mermaid was a good decision. After reading that novel I learnt so many interesting facts about the Great Barrier Reef and I would LOVE to read it again!!! I recommend you to read this book because I think you will enjoy it as much as I did. I would rate this book 4 stars because it is a brilliant book!
