Yesterday we did Oaks Day. We had to dress as if we were at the races and then did a fashion show in class groups. If you did good your did a final with judges and an audience.
This is my partnered description of what I’m wearing:
Here comes Sophie with her stunning Dior black floral dress. Her headband followed by gorgeous earrings are so expensive It’ll blow you off your seats in shock! Her shoes are definitely one of a kind. They are made by a very expensive brand in a small but popular town in America where only the finest of clothing and shoes are made. This outfit is perfect for not only the races but it also won the fashion award last week. Now put your hands together for the sensational Sophie.
The concert is coming, the CONCERT is coming, THE CONCERT IS COMING! Yes the concert is coming! Yesterday on the 1st of December we had our school concert. My class was performing Dynamite and it was really fun!
First we had to choose a song to dance to. At first we decided on a mash up of Lean On and Thunderstruck. We started dancing to that but then we changed to the song to Dynamite by Taio Cruz.
We were practicing our dance from the start of term four up until the last minute before the performance. Our choreography was from Just Dance 3 which had some cool moves to Dynamite. There was this bit in the dance that we mucked up a lot in practices so we changed that bit to people doing tricks. I did a backwards walkover with my friend Charlize while Fintan did the worm. Then my friends Charlize, Mikaylah and I did the standing up scorpion. Jarrod juggled a soccer ball on his feet and Amelia, Amy, Maddison and Sabine did a bit of Irish dancing.
The day before the concert I felt really excited but really nervous as well. I couldn’t tell which feeling was the biggest. During the concert I was scared but I calmed down until I was laughing and smiling at my buddy for next year dancing down the bottom of the stage trying to copy my dance moves. After the concert I was so relived but had the urge to go on stage and perform again.
Resilience is when you keep on trying and you bounce back when you fall. Your strong and you never give up.
On the 28th of October, all the year fives performed the song “Titanium” by Sia to the rest of the school. We chose the song Titanium because in the lyrics it included phrases like “You shoot me down, but I won’t fall.” We also chose it because Titanium is a really strong metal.
One of the times I’ve been resiliencent was when I was learning how to do a walkover in gymnastics. I tried and tried but I kept falling onto my back. Around three months later I did one which proves resilience is a really good life skill.
On the 23rd of March the whole school had PAC day.(performing arts competition day) This is when we go and perform a song with different words relating to our house team. I’m in Hurst and unfortunately we came last. The order of the day started off with Devlin singing their song. Then Devlin and Hurst sang their cheers. Next was my team singing our song. Our song was recreated from the song centuries. Then Lee sang their song. After that Lee and Gallaway chanted their cheers. The day finished off with Gallaway singing their song. Lee came first again and Hurst came last. If I was a judge I would make Hurst win! If we don’t win next time we will be a fierce as a cheetah.
