Immersion Assembly

Another term goes by which leads to another year. Luckily it’s not the last one of the year.”Saying that I better tell you what the term is it’s term 3”. This term we are learning all about Glasgow which is the commonwealth games. We watched the teams of teachers present to the school what they are learning about in our immersion assembly.

Before we got into the entertainment we were told about the different types of bikes that they brought to show. By they I mean Ms Tito and Mr Jacobson. Next was a video from our principal cause he wasn't able to attend the assembly as he was on his way back from the USA.

With all the items from the teams of teachers they were nearly all about Glasgow. Except for team five which is my team they did a movie about all their travels that they did individually. One went to Spain, USA, Chile, New York and Fiji. In the movie there was a picture with Mrs Clark, which is a teacher, with Kim Kardashian in the background of her photo.

It came to an end and I was wondering how next term’s immersion assembly will beat this term. Here we come Term 3!

Writing Analysis

Empathy review

Empathy has many sayings like putting yourself in their shoes, feeling for others and caring for one and other. Empathy is similar to sympathy but only in some cases. The difference between those two is empathy is when you understand where their feelings come from but it doesn't necessarily mean you have to agree with them.

Personally I think empathy is important because without it, the world would be full with hate and not enough happiness. Empathy helps us to see in to other peoples perspective and views with out that the world will be with two much fights. That's what I think empathy is what do you think it is?

Sound Explanation

My instrument is a guitar and I am here to tell you all about it with the instructions and how it works.  How the guitar works is you pluck or strum the string and it vibrates which turns the vibrations into sound waves the sound waves then take a bumpy ride through the guitar and emits out of the guitar. After it pushes the air molecules in to each other which creates a collision.

The air molecules that are filled with sound travels through the different parts of our ears. Finally it sends our brain electric signals which we then recognize as sound. To change the pitch and frequency I will then pluck a different string that will be either shorter or longer. It also will change the amplitude if I strum it harder.
