BTN- Passing a bill



This video was about how a bill becomes a law. A bill is a suggested law. A bill needs to go through the house of representatives to be law. It also needs to go through the senate. Finally, it has to go through the governor- general, the Queen’s representative. Can the Governor- General say no to a law? How long does the whole process take? It is a very long process for a bill to become a law.



100 word challenge- Giant tea party


Goal: To get exactly 100 words (not including this).


There once were two very nice giants having a tea party together. They had giant teacups and teapots and they scooped up chunks of grass with the teacups and gulped it down in their giant mouths. Then came along mean bully Jack the giant slayer. He had a freeze gun. He froze the innocent giants with his freeze gun and then disintegrated them with his disintegrating gun, leaving only a teacup. Afterwards he told everyone that the giants had attacked him and that he had beaten them up. Now, you can still see the giant teacup, where the giants died.

BTN- Levels of government



This video was about the three levels of government and what powers they have. There are three types of government; Federal, state/territory and local. Federal takes care of defense, trade, immigration, stuff with other countries, money, taxes, communications and the environment. State takes care of health, education, mining, agriculture, police, courts, roads, trains, law and order and public transport. Finally, local takes care of local roads, garbage, pets, local buildings and permits. Are state and federal both in parliament house? What does the house of representatives do? Federal has more power than state, but state has more power than local.

100 word challenge- …but what if I was in charge?…


I don’t really like school. It’s okay I guess, but it’s kinda boring and I could be doing way better things, like playing video games, eating nachos or playing soccer. I know we have to go to learn and stuff, but why couldn’t we just do school every second week? That would be WAYYYYYYYYYYYY better. But what if I was in charge? That would make school HEAPS more awesome. I’d do a Mexican food day so that we could raise enough money to buy everyone PS4s, and then everyone can make YouTube videos to keep earning money to get things like wide screen TVs and waterslides and chocolate fountains and stuff. School would ROCK!

100 word challenge: Ladder Goldfish Flew Brown Slowly


I was on a ladder cleaning the light bulbs when a gust of wind slowly blew into the room. It knocked over a vase, which set off a mouse trap I had put out to fix my mouse problem. The sound of the mouse trap going off frightened my ginger-brown cat, who flew across the room and knocked over my goldfish bowl, which shattered on the floor and left my poor goldfish flopping around. I picked him up and put him in a bowl of water. Geez! All this just because of a gust of wind!

BTN- Democracy



Colour code: Summary Facts Questions Insight


This BTN was about how and why the Greeks came up with democracy. The ancient Greeks came up with democracy. Democracy comes from two Greek words; Demos- People and Kratos- Power or rule. Monarchy means that the country is ruled by a king or queen born into royalty. When did democracy change to representative democracy? What is a country that is in anarchy? Back in ancient Greece it was unfair if you were a slave or a woman.

SRC speech


Hello fellow classmates. Today I will be talking to you about why I should be the SRC representative for our class. My name is Hamish and I have been at this school for 6 years. My sister Liv is in year 4, my brother Cohen is in grade 1 and my mum is secretary of the PA.

I believe I should be SRC because I am very organized. Most of the time I do my homework early and am always on top of things. I don’t miss many days of school and my school diary is neat. I manage my time well. I organize my week and I am almost never late for school.

I also think I should be SRC because I am good at communication and public speaking. I like debates and am pretty good at them. I do well in projects that require presenting to the class. One of my favourite hobbies right now is making youtube videos. I have a youtube channel (called The Taco Thief) and that involves speaking to lots of people. I have made over 40 videos about lots of different things. I play soccer outside of school and that involves communicating with your team. I often help kids in class when they are stuck on something and I am very clear and confident.

My final reason why I should be SRC is that I am a good leader. I am open to new learning opportunities, for example I have been to GATEWAYS multiple times. I am fair and okay if we lose. I show the school values and I am the vice captain of my house and captain of our gala sports team. Thank you for listening to my speech.

100 word challenge- …we were moving very fast when …


I was in a car race with my best friend, me in the driver’s seat, him in the passenger seat when a horrible thing happened. We crashed. We were moving very fast and coming first when we saw a flying pig. I repeat, WE SAW A FLYING PIG. I don’t know how or why it was flying, but the second we saw that thing we stopped paying attention to the car and started blinking and rubbing our eyes, not believing what we had just seen. Then we crashed into a pole that was holding up the number of laps and both went to hospital. When we got out of hospital we found out that someone had filmed it, so we put it on YouTube. Now we’re billionaires and living in a life of bliss.

Letter to Ant


Hi Ant,

I’m Hamish and I’ve been at this school for 6 years. I have been in your class before so you probably already know a bit about me. I love video games, holidays, soccer and YouTubing. My favourite video game is Fortnite and I’ve been playing soccer in a team called the White Central Comets for 5 years.


I have a brother named Cohen and a sister named Liv. Cohen is in grade one this year and Liv is in grade four. Cohen is in Jess’s class and Liv is in Candice’s. Cohen has just started to play soccer this year in a team called the Blue Central Comets and Liv has been playing soccer for three years in a team called the Green Central Comets.


My mum has red hair and makes jewellery. She did a bachelor of science majoring in psychology. She ended up as a research fellow, but then had children and chose to make jewellery. My dad is an engineer who likes cars and currently is working at Ambulance Victoria. He used to work at Ford but then wanted to move onto something different and changed to a company that certifies GPS equipment. He moved on from there and is now working at Ambulance Victoria.


I have two really cute cousins who are identical twins, Sienna and Siam. They are girls and are four years old. My grandma and grandpa live apart and we visit them occasionally. I have a nana and a great auntie, but we just call her auntie. I have one uncle and one auntie (who live in Japan) on my dad’s side and one uncle and one auntie on my mum’s side. My mum’s dad died when she was seven. Finally I have a great uncle and a great auntie who live in New South Whales.


On the holidays we went to Shepparton, where they had cow sculptures everywhere, the world’s biggest playground and really fun water activities. It was a nice and relaxing place to stay, and I enjoyed it a lot. We normally go for a three hour drive up to Boort on the holidays to see our friends who own a farm, but we ran out of time so we didn’t get to go. I also went away to Rye with my friend Tem for three days. It is near the beach, and the place we were staying at had a spa and two gigantic TVs, so we basically just went to the beach, relaxed in the spa and watched TV the whole time. They also had a trampoline there but it wasn’t very bouncy.


Over the holidays I also learnt how to juggle, which was very fun. I learnt some more songs on our piano and got a new game on my ps4. I wanted to try doing something new as well as soccer and swimming, so I am going to start learning parkour, and maybe tennis. I used to play tennis but after a couple of years I decided to quit. Now I am thinking of giving it another try, because when I used to play tennis I only did training and no competitions, so that is why I got bored and quit. This time I might do the competitions, so hopefully that will be more interesting.


I hope you enjoyed learning about me.
