On Thursday we were celebrating the day of the dead in Mexico. To celebrate day of the dead traditions we made our own sugar skulls. The sugar skulls are a very detailed and are covered in flowers, swirls and other patterns.
This week my class has been working very hard on our inquiry, the topic is energy. I am doing mine on stored energy like batteries. Other kids are doing theirs on oil, water, solar, wind, gas, biomass (food energy), nuclear and geothermal. We are going to have a expo in week 8 to show the school and parents what we have been learning at school. I am going to do my presentation on a smore, slide show and do a experiment.
On Monday our school had Italian day. The theme was Roman empire, we had to dress up as someone from that time. I came as a wealthy women in the Roman times. I was wearing my dads white t-shirt with a gold belt, a gold leafed head piece with a red sash.
There were lots of activities to do like boche, mosaic, coin making and puppets. the best thing about Italian day is we get ice-cream and pizza.

Alannah likes playing on electronic things but she also likes board because she likes to see someone when she is playing.
Melbourne cup is a very big celebration for all people that are into racing. You can bet money on a horse and if the horse wins you get the money that you bet. The horses that go in the race are worth about $1,000,000. If you go to the Melbourne cup it is most likely you will see people with big hats or tuxedoes. The winner will get a trophy, heaps of money and flowers to put around the horses neck. They will also have a photo taken in the winners circle.

Hi my name is Alana I am 11 years old and have one older sister. My favourite colours are purple, baby blue and water melon pink. My hobbies are horse riding, gymnastics, dancing and art.
I live in a family of 4 with a step dad, a step mum and two step brothers. I am the youngest in my family not including my dogs. I have 2 dogs, 4 cats, 8 fish, 3 chickens, 2 guinea pigs, 1 bird and 1 mouse. I love all my pets but it is a lot of work to take care of all of them. I would really like to go to America and France. I would like to go to America because I would like to go to Disney land and Lego land.
Hi my name is Alana and my passion is horse riding because I love animals and it is really fun. I first started horse riding when I was 7 years old. I took riding lessons and then I went to trail rides at Ace High but now we go to a place called uncle Nevs, we try to go there as much as we can. My mum loves horse riding and so does my sister. I think it is in our family, my aunty has a farm with lots of animals and fun things to do. She has a horse called Reo but he is very old and too wild to ride, but we still like feeding him and playing with him.
