During topics this term was about sinking and floating. For that my class did a activity where we had to test out some things whether they'll float or sink. my prediction for an apple was that it'll sink but turns out it floated. I did not know that an apple could float. I could not believe my eyes.

This week my group the hexagons have been working on measurement. We learned about the height, depth, width, distance and length. there were heaps but this week we were learning about height.One by one each person estimated how tall they were. I was thinking I was 1.60m but when they did the actual measurement it was 1.65m.

Pentecost is a time when the Holy Spirit came to the apostles. The Holy Spirit came to them and gave them warmth and strength throughout their lives. The apostles were thankful. The holy spirit gave them the ability to share the Scripture . The apostles were very happy indeed.

On retreat day all of the year 8’s had a time where we had to show leadership and pray. It was peaceful and quiet. The activities were cool. The one thing that I really enjoyed was the treasure hunt, however all groups had to hold on to a long piece of toilet paper. All of us hated it especially me. Eventually we all finished and our group brought a basket of fruit over.
On the first day we got there all of us went inside a chapel. We all saw a mat and loads of candles. I was the first one with Simone to light one for ourselves. I also lit another one for my mum so she could get the strength she needs throughout life.

It was about Mary believing in Jesus and some of the people went to pharisees and told the people there that he was performing wonderful miracles. So the chief priests met up with the council and said what shall they do?. The council said look at this man who preforms miracles. It was so sad that the roman authorities took over and destroyed their temple and their nation.
