Size matters

Today we did the science activity “Size Matters”. We got split into groups with 5G. My group did Mars. The size was 1.5cm not to scale. The real diameter was 6,780 km.

Then we went outside and used the oval as the solar system. We put all of the planets in order from the sun.


Thursday 29th of October: This morning we had Mrs. Montgomery talk to us about how to be a leader. She showed us a PowerPoint with dot points about how to be a leader.

• You need to listen to everyone.

• You need trust your friends/colleagues.

• You need to have a sense of humour.

• You need to work with everyone.

I asked Mrs. Montgomery what qualifications you need to be a principal?



I once saw a panda,
When I was slepping in my camper.
I thought it was a bear,
With black and white hair.
It started to eat bamboo,
Which sounded like a cockatoo.
The panda was wearing a suit and tie,
That could make anybody cry.
Pandas are mad,
And totally rad.
