Magical World of Crazy Science

Today we had two amazing people that came to our school to show us amazing science tricks and experiments. My favorite part was when all the kids started getting excited about all the crazy tricks they had performed. I found the first trick they performed really interesting. He held two giant rings in his hands and he clashed them together without us noticing how it happened and then pulled the rings apart like nothing ever happened. I learnt that bubbles are the thinnest objects in the whole world that can seen by a human eye. I wonder how scientist know everything about science and why they think its interesting to learn about.  I also wonder how a scientist can also present magic tricks.  I think what I would do now is try theses amazing science experiments out at home (With parents supervision) to see how my parents and family will react to them. here is a video about the giant bubbles being formed. Please feel free to comment.

Animation slides

Hello, Last term we decided to make some animation slides. An animation slide is something where you can use google slides to make a small story or a little cartoon about something you're interested in. This animation slide can also be describe as stop motion. I chose the sunset because I thought it would be interesting to see how I will blend all the colours together. These is my animation slides I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment. Have you made stop motion / animation slides?
I thought this task was very fun to work on. I think it wasn't much of a challenge but it does take time to duplicate them. In the future I think I would be happy to make another one.

Student led toolkits

On Thursday a small group from Waikowhai Primary School was chosen to represent our school for student led tool kits. We picked two sessions we wanted to play and students from other schools taught us how to use/play these games. The first session I was in incredibox. Incredibox box is an incredible game to play it is used to make cool beats and music, with this game you can also record music and download it to your drive. After that we went to our second session CODETASTRA-PHE. This game was about how to animate your name. We had to use a lot of different techniques for this to be able to work. By the end of this I finally was able to animate my name. The lunch bell rang and it was time for lunch, we played for about 45 minutes. in those 45 minutes I saw my cousin. Finally lunch had finished and we had a problem solving competition. Waikowhai Primary School Came second for most creative tower. the problem solving competition was... They had to make a tower that is 10cm long and it has to be able to hold 100 grams of weight. We finally finished and it was time to say goodbye. Waikowhai said thank you and we left back to school. This was my experience. hope you enjoyed it

fun building

This week I created a small model tent as a math task. To make this we used modeling clay / Plasticine toothpicks and a small piece of cardboard. While making this model I made three different shapes a rectangle,square and a cube. Some of the problems I had was it kept collapsing because of all the movement, weight and pressure being put on it. I Learnt that less clay can go a long way because it's a very thick texture. The good thing about this task was it helped me to find different techniques to use while building. This is my work, I hope you enjoy. Blog you later.

Overall I  think the process of this task was a little bit hard but it gave me a challenge. Half way through i was so close to being finished but it collapsed because the pressure i was putting on it.

My Narrative Writting

   This term we created a piece of creative writing about any topic we liked.  I chose the story to be a little bit scary. ( SPOILERS) my favorite part is at the end. I decided to publish this piece of work because I thought it's ready to publish and I thought people would like to see some creativity. I hope you enjoy this piece of work and feel free to comment. 

One morning on a dark and dreary day where the crows were croaking and the trees were rumbling. There was a small town with a big red brick house, with two members that lived in it, Mary and her Mum. However on this day Mary was all alone. Mary's Mum calls and tells her I miss you so much. Mary sent a photo of her for her Mum but when Mary looked back at the photo she noticed someone behind her....
Once the photo was sent to her Mum, she told Mary to quickly get out of the. Mary’s mum told her there was a tall scary looking figure standing behind her.  Mary had no idea what was going on, her doors are closed and locked and the windows are shut,plus she would have been able to hear something break in. Mary tried to unlock the doors but somehow the keys to the door are gone they disappeared off her desk. something freaky is going on said Mary. Mary tried to open the windows but they were all jammed. What do I do now…

Grandma call Grandma she lives closest to us. Mary told Mum she came over to tell me she's going on a beautiful holiday. Mary locked herself in in the closet and was as quiet as possible while mum comes home. 10 MINUTES LATER..  Sorry I might be late said mum, the traffic is major. Grab your phone and call the police. Aah! Mary’s phone started ringing. Mary picks up her phone with shaky and sweaty palms she decided to answer the phone and...

Hi Mary its Mum, I just got a call from my boss I have to go to work otherwise I'm fired. Go to your fathers house I will be there just in time for dinner. !6 palm street. Mary has never heard of this street before but she went there anyways. Cant wait said Mum. Mary said Mum how do I know this is you?
