This term we have been learning how to play tennis. Our instructor taught us two ways to hit the ball, they were called forehand and backhand. We had to pair up, Denim was my partner. First, one of us had to throw the ball just in front of you, while the other person had to hit the ball back.

After we had done that 6 people had to stand in a line and we played a game called king of the court. I was king about 4 times. When we packed up at the end of the session everyone was tired. I couldn't wait untill next week.

My Alien

This term, year 7 students in room 19 are making aliens out of paper mache. We are working very hard, and we are also having heaps of fun. I am making a two headed alien, one head is smart while the other head is not as smart. I have nearly finished my alien. Hopefully I will post my finished project on my blog soon.

Thanks to Cruz and Feki for checking my work.

Solar System Questions

Mr Harris (teacher)gave my class two questions about the Solar System. I hope this following information helped you know a bit about the Moons, the Earth and the Sun ENJOY!

Is There Only One Moon In The Solar System?
No, there are about 139 moons in the solar system. Earth has 1, Mars has 2, Jupiter has 62 which is the largest number of moons, coming in second is Saturn with 33 moons. Uranus 22, Neptune 13, Pluto 1, Mercury and Venus have no moons at all.

Does The Sun Spin Around The Earth or The Earth Spin Around The Sun?
The Earth rotates around the Sun. Earth is rotating around the sun because of its gravitational pull.

Thanks to Rachael for checking my work.

My dream is to play basketball, cause ever since my uncle taught me how to play (which was a very long time ago) I desperately wanted to have a game of basketball. And my dream has finally come true.

My mum signed me up for basketball. So every Wednesday after school I play. My team's name is Lakers! Our main strip is green and our alternative strip is white. In my team there are 3 girls and 3 boys. We had our first game last week, it was really good but unfortunately we lost.

I really like my team because they are really cool, they like to play basketball and are alright at it, also their very supportive and nice.

Oh, I totally forgot YES! Today is Wednesday the 9th November and you know what that means. I can't wait for my game tonight.

My Dream Outta This World Holiday

‘Brring...’ screamed the alarm. I tried to ignore it. I wanted to stay in my dream. My dream outta this world Holiday.

My dream was about Mars. Mars is the seventh largest planet also is the fourth planet from the sun. Mars is a very hard planet to spot using telescopes even using the massive ones, they say it’s to small.

Mars is called ‘The Red Planet’ because it has a reddish appearance from Earth. The planet Mars is not a pleasant place to live. Early in its history, Mars was much more like Earth.
The two moons of Mars are, Phobos and Deimos.

Their were several spacecrafts that have been to Mars. The first spacecraft to visit Mars was the Mariner 4 in 1965. In 1997 the Mars Pathfinder successfully landed on Mars.
