Balloon rocket


Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment
Today Flynn, Solomon, the whole class and I did balloon rocket experiments. We did it in groups of 3 or 2. We could do it from different heights but Solomon and Flynn and I didn't try it from different heights, we stayed at the same height. Sometimes it spiraled but sometimes it didn't.


Week:3 Drag
Today's experiment  was about balloon rockets with a small piece of paper attached.  The the distance was 3.46, that was how long the string was. Then we did another experiment with a bigger piece of paper and the weird thing was that with the bigger piece of paper it stopped in the middle of the rope and then it started again and it went to the end but it went very slow.  I think it acted differently because the paper was a different size.  I think the wind pushed it.

Staying up

Are they going to catch me or not? I will just start at the beginning. It was 5.00 am in the morning and I was awake. As I walked downstairs, I heard the creaks of my footsteps. I was coming downstairs to watch TV, even though I am not allowed to watch Tv until 7.00 am in the morning. As I sit down on the couch I gasped. Are my parents going to catch me or not? As I look around the room I see shadowI trembl. It's like my parents are looking over me. Are they going to catch me or not? If they do they will ground me for a month. It just turned 7:00 and my parents didn't catch me.

Science journal

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
After today's experiment which was about slime that we poured over Mr Anderson, I rated my learning about science multistructural because I volunteered to stir the slime. It was hard to stir because when I put pressure on it the pressure made it hard when you take the pressure off it turned into liquid. If I were Mr Anderson I would be so cold and shivering and I would like to have a nice warm shower.

Inquiry

At the start of this term, I related my learning multistructural but now I rate my learning relational because I do way more stuff like signing up for wet day monitor, sharing   skills, radio dj, picking up rubbish, returning items that people have borrowed or stolen and I put rubbish in the bin. Even if it is on the floor I still put the rubbish in the bin. The challenges with coaching were getting the kids to listen to us because they were playing around with the soccer balls.  Overall:it was fun but very hard because they were playing around with the soccer balls.

Are you a responsible citizen.

Are you a responsible citizen? A  responsible citizen has an important role to play in making our community safe,strong and clean.

One important quality is to follow rules and laws because if we didn’t, our community will be a dangerous place, people will end up in prison, we will lose money, lose brains. So this quality is important because it will keep us safe, earn resources, and makes are community close.

Another important quality is to be a role model because little kids might copy bad stuff, people will kill other people. So this quality is important because it helps people.

Overall it is important that everyone be a responsible citizen because this will make the community safe because people won't get hurt.

Athletes

On a cold Wednesday afternoon I go to Christchurch Avon athletes club. As soon as I arrive home from school, I run up the stairs to change into my skins and club t-shirt. Then I sprint back down the stairs like a cheetah to have my afternoon tea. Then I whizz into the car. As soon as I arrive,I run over to my friends. We finally start.  I run over to my training teacher and we start our warm ups together so we don't pull a muscle. I leap, I push, I huff and puff. After I feel good and I feel fit. Even when I trip over I still love it. I get back up again and run as hard as I can.

I am a Ferrari


I am a Ferrari, speeding on the highway.
I am the sky tower, extending me to the stars.

I am bike, speeding on the footpath.‍
I am apple, rolling down the hills.

I am ice cream, stacking my learning.
I am sneakers, stomping around the room.

Ko Thomas ahau.
