Valedictorian Speech 2015

December17

Hello and welcome everyone to my latest post and today’s topic is all about me and my valedictorian speech this year. I hope you enjoy reading and don’t forget to comment and follow/subscribe! So what are we waiting for? Let’s release the VALEDICTORIANS!

                                                                                                               VALIDICTORIAN SPEECH

So, here we are, almost at the end of our journey at primary school. But at the same time, we’re about to start a whole new journey in high-school, just as we started our journey here in prep. I would like to congratulate my fellow year 6 classmates who have also completed their journeys. It has been an honour to be at Moonee Ponds Primary School for the past 7 years.  In some ways, these 7 years have been long and short. Long because of all the drama and extra homework, short because of the life-long friendships, the lasting memories and the truly amazing things we have learnt throughout our time here. Good or bad, long or short, I will always remember this place. Our teachers, of course, spend an inhuman amount of time here, and most students do as well. Most of them even do it off their own choosing.

I remember when it was my first day at school; I was in a surrounding that I didn’t know. But as time went on, I started to like this place. By the end of prep, I already made quite a few friends. I remember I used to chase Tait, Cian, Ben and Ferris around at Lunchtimes, and once I even crossed the red line and got in trouble for the first time. By year one, I started bragging about being older than all the preps and grade ones, until one day, Madeline Vorrias approached me and ben grey and asked us if we were preps last year, we nodded. Then she started bragging about being in grade two, and I had learnt my lesson.

Whatever we decide, most of us will agree that Moonee Ponds Primary School was a great place to foster our minds and bodies in this critical learning phase. I am a totally different person than I was seven years ago. I hope I am also a better one. I learnt so much- my interests, myself and so on. I feel like if I go back in time, my younger self won’t recognise me! I hope this passion for learning carries on when I have to search out into myself instead of biking into class and taking notes.

In grade two, I had one of the greatest learning years, being the spelling bee in the class! The biggest event was the grade two sleep-over. That’s when we first got to sleep at the SPC; boys were on one side, and a whole row of girls on the other side. There were only about 10 boys in grade two then, so we took a little corner. We had casual clothes on that day, so that was awesome. I slept next to Tait, and we practically talked all night.

Grade three was one of my best years at M.P.P.S. I missed camp that year, as we were off to London, so I had something better than camp. But I did hear that camp was great that year. We did quite a few special things in Zoya’s class that none of the other classes did, like having a fish and chips picnic at the end of the year. The most interesting part was that I never got full marks on my maths tests until the very last test, when I got 50 out of 50. Now that’s a huge improvement!

The biggest thing I have learnt again and again, I am probably speaking for a lot of us here, is that we only get one trip around this rock. We might as well enjoy it. If you find a balance between work, school or otherwise and have fun. “All Work and no Play makes jack a dull boy.” It’s not just the quote from a movie, it’s the truth. A well rounded person is someone who knows a little bit about every topic his or her friends discuss. And an interesting person can take that information and make a conversation about it. Even if his or her knowledge is lacking.

Grade four was very interesting, as I was in ant’s class. I loved the way he taught us things beyond our learning standards. It really helped on the following year in lee’s class. The most interesting part about grade four was camp. We had three days to explore sovereign hill. We focused on learning more about Australian History. In class, we also got to pour water on our heads on very hot days when everyone had a water bottle. That was pretty awesome. But that’s not it, I also got my pen licence that year.

In grade five, I obviously loved being in lee’s class as I really like being around software (that’s why I want to be a software engineer). That year was also one of my best years at M.P.P.S. with a load of friends in my class. It was also one of my huge learning years, as I improved A LOT on my handwriting, making speeches including impromptu speeches and much more. By the end of that year, I was a completely different person than I was at the start.

Others may get the right to work, or even take a year or more off to decide what they want to do. Leaving primary school is such a brutal decision, that I don’t know what the world has in store for us. Just thinking about all those exams and decisions between high schools give me the headaches! But I do know how do deal with those life events, though: By using the skills and information I have picked up here. It all comes down to help, and I have got plenty of people to thank for that. Parents, of course, teachers, friends. I guess the biggest thing I have learnt in primary school is to help others when needed.

Finally, in grade six, my last year in primary school, I am in Jude’s class. I learnt quite a few new statements and words. I think the biggest event of this year was Camp, which I sadly missed due to the confusion of a trip to Bangladesh. Jude tells us heaps of stories in class time…so I guess I’m lucky to be in Jude’s class!

To everyone who changed our lives, we all say thank you. To Parents who stood by us no matter what. To teachers who tried to give us a passion for learning. To administrators who tried to make our primary school experiences as amazing as possible. To friends who were always by our side and all the people we depend on. Without each other, there would be no purpose of being here, no way to advance. Life, like society, is exactly how we make of it. So I thank everyone for being with us in every step.

Sincerely, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you all.

Takee

 

Last Day Of 2014

December31

Hello everyone, this is the LAST POST of the year and I wish you all  a Happy New Year! Be sure to read my post about the fireworks Visit next year (Tomorrow)!

This year, 2014 has been the best year I have experienced so far due to friends and family. Without them, this year wouldn’t have been as good. I’ve enjoyed all the fun things about this year all the way from school activities near the start of the year to the Christmas Holidays(Even though the Christmas Holidays aren’t over yet). But  that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the boring things:) And after all that, here we are today, on the last day of 2014. I will miss the year but at the same, I’m looking forward to next year.

As you might already know, I am going to Docklands tonight at around midnight to see the fireworks. It was really fun last year and it’s a great way to experience the first minute of the year. The best part about it is that you get walk on the roads! I’ll write a post about it tomorrow where you’ll  get some more detail. So see you there if your going!

I’ve enjoyed all the ups and downs this year, especially in Tournaments Of Minds in which we had a lot of arguments. But at least we were able to perform on stage with the right materials. I hope next year is a bit better. But the most interesting things about this year is the excursions, Incursions and Camps we did at school such as  GTAC, the school Concert, Canberra Camp, Met Challenge and many more that will take ages to name. We had so much fun with all these(even though I didn’t go to Canberra Camp). Next year I’m looking forward to being Captain with most of these events!

Another great experience was this years school Homework! As you might already know, we had the 100 WC, BTN, Spelling City, Maths Mate and putting them in Audacity. But that’s all school stuff, lets get back to the whole year! I’ve been to heaps of places, festivals, exhibitions, movies and much more, making this year the funnest and most explored.

We were very busy near the end of the year because of Christmas and New Years Eve, Of course and Moving houses. We moved into a pretty big 2 bedroom house with pretty large back and front yards. It was a big hit for me because we lived in our previous house for 7 years and that’s where I grew up! So I was a bit sad to move but I got over it in a month or two.

So that’s pretty much all I have to say about this year! Feel Free to leave a comment!

Thanks, By Takee, Bye!

Maths Mate Term 4 Sheet 3 Question 23

October27

Hello Everyone, this is my weekly Maths Mate and today’s Sheet is sheet 3 and the Question is Question 23 of Term 4. So what are we waiting for?

Prediction: I predict that this question(text) is going to be about an imaginary number that you double and add 4. Then the working out part will comes. For example, if they say that ” If the result is 20, what would the original number be?”, We have to work out what number multiplied by 2 with an extra 4 would make 20. I am 99% sure that my prediction will be correct because on the last 2 sheets on this same question, it was similar.

Big Question:If the result is 20, what was the original number?

Read: I think of a number, double it and then add 4. If the result is 20, what was the original number?

Clarification: I have nothing to Clarify.

Mathematicians Tool Box: The Mathematicians Tool Box I used was…Look for a “Pattern or an idea”, “Try out new ideas” and “Test All Possibilities.”

Solve: To solve this problem, I subtracted 20 by 4 to make it 16. Then I halved 16 by 2 to make it 8 and that was my answer! Just be be sure, I doubled it, to make 16 and added 4 to make it 20. So then I was absolutely sure that the answer was 8.

Answer: 08

Summery: This was a Problem solving  question that was very easy for me, but not for everyone. Most people use the “Guess, Check and Improve” Mathematicians Tool Box strategy to solve this problem that makes it harder for them. It would take AGES! For example, if your first try was 4, you’d double it and add 4 to make it 12. Then you’d say “It doesn’t Match!” See? So what I do is Look for a Pattern, another Mathematicians Tool Box Strategy. The Pattern I used was my way, but if you find another way, then go for it!

Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 7 Question 23

August30

Predict: I predict that this text is going to be about an archaeologist who finds some ancient numbers and we have to work out  what they mean and then, they will give us an equation using those numbers and we have to work out what it all adds up to.

Big Question: What did fish, lolly and III equal?(as in pictures, not in words).

Read: An archaeologist found some ancient numbers written as follows:

fish, fish II for 202

Fish, lolly, lolly, lolly for 130

lolly, lolly III for 23

What did fish, lolly, III equal?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Mathematicians Tool Box: The mathematicians Tool Box I used was use prior knowledge, persist, think about thinking and try all possibilities.

Solve: To solve this problem, I looked at the first one that adds up to 202. I used a bit of prior knowledge in this, I knew that II equals 2 so 2 take away 202 equals 200. so 2 fish left with 200 to go. I halved 200 which equals 100. so then I understood that 1 lolly equals 100.But,  I still don’t know what the lollies mean yet so I looked at the second one that adds up to 130.I knew that fish would be 100 so I took away 100 leaving me with 30. I thought about for about 10 seconds and it banged into my head that if there are 3 lollies left and  I have 30, 1 lolly would equal 10. I knew what they all men’t by know but I just did the third one that adds up to 23 anyway. III equals 3 so 23-3=20. 2 lollies left with 20. 10 and 10. DONE.

Now I  need to work out what fish, lolly and III adds up to. I knew that fish is 100, and lolly is 10 and III is 3. So add them together and it’s…. 113.

That’s how I worked it out.

Answer: 113

Summery: This equation was a bit too easy for me. I finished the problem in less than 2 minutes.  I hope I explained how I worked it out well and let’s see if you can do it!!!

Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 3 Question 22

August2

Predict: I predict that this text is going to be about us working out how many cricketers there by getting certain information.

Big Question: How many cricketers are there altogether?

Read: A number of cricketers are standing in a circle. They are evenly spaced and the second cricketer is directly opposite the sixth player. How many crackers are there altogether?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Mathematicians Tool Box: The mathematicians Tool Box I used was draw a diagram and try all possibilities.

Solve: I solved this problem by drawing a diagram to help me with solving the problem.

Answer: 16

Summary:  This maths problem wasn’t easy, nor was it hard for me. it was in the  middle even though I have faced maths problems like this before. It was were we had to work out how many cricket players are in the circle and I worked it out because they gave certain information in the text and without that information, it would be impossible to solve. My prediction was correct! I am not sure if my answer is correct or not so if you want, you can solve the problem(It’s not hard, just in the middle).

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 8 Question 23

June17

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 MATHS MATE 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Predict: I predict that this text is going to be about a person having the same number  of something as someone else and somehow he/she gets more of the thing and we have to work out how much marbles they both had at the start!

Read: Ian started with the same number of marbles as his brother, Francis. After winning 4 marbles from Francis, Ian realises that he now has twice as many marbles as his brother. How many marbles does Ian have now?

Clarify: I have nothing to Clarify:

Big Question: How many marbles does Ian have?

Mathematicians Tool Box: The mathematicians Tool box I used was try all possibilities.

Solve: To solve this problem I tried all possibilities for example, i thought that they each started off as having 4 marbles each and I thought the answer was 8. I tried and tried until I finally got the answer.

Answer:

Summary: This problem was a medium one for me. it was hard and easy. some parts were hard and some parts were easy. I really like hard and easy maths problems like this! They are fun to do.

Thank you By Takee Alif—–17/06/14—–bye bye! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 6 Question 23

May28

Predict: This text is going to be about a class who has a few more girls  in the class and the total number of students in the class is 22. We have to work out how many girls are in the class.

Read: In a class of 22 students, there are 4 more girls than boys. How many girls are there in the class?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Big Question: How many girls are there in the class?

Solve: To solve this problem I just halved 22 which is 11. then I took 4 away from 11 which is 7. then I added them together which was 18. So I tried 12, but it didn’t work so then I tried 13. I took 4 away from 13 which is 9. then I added 7 and 13 together which is 22. So that is how I worked it out.

Mathematicians Tool Box: The mathematicians tool box I used was find all possibilities.

Answer: 22

Summary: This problem was really easy. I just worked it out in 1 minute. This problem is were there is a class of 22 people and there are 4 more girls than boys and our job is to work out how many girls there are in the class. I have done heaps of harder maths problems.

Maths Mate Term 2 Sheet 5 Question 23

May25

Predict: I predict that this text is going to be about someone have a certain amount of something and someone else has a certain amount of the same thing but more. both of there stamps combined equals a number and I think then we have to work out how many stamps the first person has.

Read: Mike and Anna had 20 stamps altogether. Mike had 4 more stamps than Anna. How many Stamps does Anna have?

Clarify: I have nothing to Clarify.

Big Question: How many stamps does Anna have?

Solve: To solve this problem I made a model in my head. there were 20 stamps at first. then I divided it into 2 groups. 1 group had 12 in it and the other group had 8 in it. Then I thought about it. If Mike has 4 more stamps than Anna and altogether it equals 20, then Anna must have 8 stamps and mike must have 12 stamps. So that’s how I worked it out.

Mathematicians Tool Box: The mathematicians Tool Box I used was make a model.

Answer: 8

Summary: This was a really easy Maths Problem. I have done so many maths problems like this before. This Maths problem was were someone had a certain amount of stamps and someone else has a few more stamps than the first person and there stamps altogether equaled 20. we had to work out how many stamps the first person had. This Maths problem was fun and easy.
