A Day In The Life Of A Prep! :)

Hi! I have not posted anything in a while, but here is a cool movie for you to watch!

In LEEP we have a cool online TV show called BLOTS. It stands for Berwick Lodge Online TV Show. We make interesting videos for the audience relating to what we do at school. This video was all about showing parents what the preps do at school!

For this video, we had to take a lot of pictures of the preppies! Mrs M chose 5 of her students. Aleece, Tarah and I took them out to the playground and had our very own photo shoot. Then we followed them around and took more photos of them doing class activities.

After we finished the photo part, we had to put it all together. This took a while because we had to find the right music!

One of the things that I have learnt is to get only one person to find the music while the others work on the pictures because it takes alot of time to get the music perfect. We got our music from   http://invompetech.com/music/royalty-free

Hope that you enjoy the film! Made by Steph, Aleece and Tarah

Grade 6 Berwick College Visit

On the 5th of June 2014, 21 Berwick Lodge grade 21 students went to Berwick College for a transition day. This experience was for us to see what High school would be like in 2015.  At 1.00 pm Mr Dobell (Vice Principal) took us in his Minivan to Berwick College after we had finished our lunch.

 

Once we got there, we went through the office to the staff room and we waited there for about 5-10 mins. Then Mrs Kenning took us to one of the maths rooms where we would be doing our activity. In maths, we learnt about sphinx’s.

 

Our task was to make a sphinx with 4 little sphinx’s. Then each time we made our sphinx’s bigger, we would calculate what size is it and how much bigger than size 1 it was. You could figure out what size it was, by how many sphinx’s it had on the bottom and to work out  how much it was bigger than 1, you just multiply it by 4.

 

After we finished this task, we would have to go through what number would be to the power of 2, e.g if the answer was 36 , you would have to write 6 to the power of 2.

After our math class learning about sphinx, Mr Dobell took us back in his minivan back to school just before we were dismissed to go home . That was our wonderful time at Berwick College. I am  really excited about going to Secondary School in 2015.
