A platypus is one of Australia's animals which is also known as the duck-billed platypus, is a semiaquatic egg-laying mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania.

The Australian pound, introduced in 1910 and officially distinct in value from the pound sterling since devaluation in 1931, was replaced by the dollar on 14 February 1966. The rate of conversion for the new decimal currency was two dollars per Australian pound, or ten Australian shillings per dollar. Australia has a lot of facts about their sports example the most popular game played in australia -

Aussie rules:The Australian Football League (AFL) is the highest-level professional competition in the sport of Australian rules football. Through the AFL Commission, the AFL also serves as the sport's governing body, and is responsible for controlling the Laws of the Game.

Australian rules football was invented in Melbourne, Australia, and the first match identified as a direct precursor to the codification of Australian football was organised and umpired by Tom Wills and contested on 31 July 1858 between Melbourne Grammar School and Scotch College,

Adjacent to the Melbourne Cricket .The Victorian Football League was established in 1896 and the following year the League's first games were played among the foundation clubs – Carlton, Collingwood, Essendon, Fitzroy, Geelong, Melbourne, St Kilda and South Melbourne. In 1908, Richmond and University joined the competition.

Australia - Summer Learning Journey

The reason I would want to visit this country is because I want to see all my family that I have never seen before. I also want to see snakes if there is any. I want to try and join in one of the kids Australian football aussie kick team. How big the emu's are and what they do, My favourite colour is green and gold but I have never seen a better green and gold before. And I want to find out the 6 different contents of Australia.

My experiment gone wrong - Narrative writing

WALT: Include our senses in our writing

This week we have been learning about an experiment gone wrong. What we did was that we did a narrative writing about anything but it has to do with an experiment that goes totally wrong. On the top on this description there is a narrative writing that I have created and on the side of the writing there is comments that I have done for my checklist. My checklist is out of ten so I hope I get all of these things I need to work on:

1. Title/Orientation
2. Problem
3. Solution
4. Sounds like
5. Smells like
6. Felt like
7. Looked like
8. Tasted like
9. Editing - Punctuation/ Makes sense
10. Paragraphs

So here are the 10 things I need to work on please comment down below and write what I need to work on thankyou.

Lunchbag poster

Walt: Synthesise information from multiple sources.  

This week we have been doing some science about chemical reactions. So here is what I have did for this week.

My Rust task

WALT: Synthesise information from multiple sources.

Here are three ingredients we would need.

Oxygen from the air

brief paragraph explaining the rusting process (why rusting occurs)
You would need Iron, water and also oxygen from the air. It starts with the oxygen from the air which mixes with water, Secondly, The iron surface of the nail reacts with the oxygen mixed in the water. It forms iron oxide. When the iron oxide reacts with water. It forms hydrated iron oxide the red stuff we would name “ RUST”. This process continues until all the iron is eaten up.

“ Other metals damages in different types of ways, but the only type of material that can rust is metal with iron in them.”

How could you prevent something from rusting?
Whenever you put iron, water, and oxygen in a test tube together you would recognise that when they all mix up together it’s colour would be brownish which is called “rust”. So the best way to prevent it is to keep the three ingredients separate from each other (That’s what paint does, or the spray-on wax and oil coatings that the car protection companies sell.) Always keep your tools dried, wipe down your bike after a ride, and keep water away so they can’t rust.

Something new I have learnt from this reading.
One of the things that I have learnt from this reading is how metal rust and why.

The second thing that I was interested from this reading is some of advice of how you could stop something from rusting.

And I have learnt a knew word that I didn't know the meaning of. Alloy, it means that when a metal is with another element it makes the metal stronger or more resistance to corrosion.
