Reading Activity T1 W5

For reading we have been reading a persuasive text about the Evil Drinking Fountain. We decided to write another persuasive text convincing someone the object we chose had a special power too. Here is my persuasive text about the Good Rubber

The Good Rubber

This rubber is good luck let me tell you why.

One day Kruz made a mistake in his maths book and used the rubber and never made a mistake again.

One day I was doing maths and made a mistake so I used the rubber and all my work was done for me.

One day Baylen was walking home and he found the rubber and when he got home his parents said yes to whatever he said.

Surely you know that this rubber gives good luck now.

Writing Activity T3 W7

Can I vary my sentence beginnings,                        structures and lengths?

I wondered can I go even faster than 200 kph? I personally think I can do it but its not going to be easy. I better do it now otherwise I never will. Suddenly I heard the other driver start his engine, I started my engine and roared off. Vroom! Vroom! I sped down the black icy race track.150 kph, 200 kph, 215 kph. I did it! I did it!

Math Activity T3W3

In class for maths my group has been learning about 3D shapes. My group went on a hunt to find some 3D shapes around the school. We took photos and needed to identify what the shape was and describe it. 

I found a cylinder. A cylinder has 2 edges and 3 faces. 

My 2nd photo is a pentagonal prism. This has 7 faces, 10 vertices and 15 edges. 

My 3rd photo is a rectangular prism. It has 6 faces, 8 vertices and 12 edges.

Cave Painting

In class I have been learning about cave paintings. The teacher sent us off to pick a cave painting we liked. Here is the one I picked. I think they painted this painting with a stick and animal hair. I also think the colour is made with animal fat and ochre. I also think they painted the painting because they have seen this bull before and maybe killed it.

Swimming Story

First let’s start off by saying, that when we go swimming  and get free time we do one free jump and a lot of people do bombs and dives. Also they do freestyle and backstroke, then they also swim quickly and sometimes stupidly. I like to swim slowly and happily sometime people speck way to loudly. Also the pool is super fun to swim in. Sometimes it can be hot and sometimes it can be cold. Also you will be wet for sure and the floor will be slippery.

Chunky Chalks

Mrs Palmer read us a book about how to make chalk. So we followed the method and made chalk. My favourite part was watching the Plaster of Paris change colours.

Chunky Chalks

What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?

Plaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.

  1. In a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.
  2. Add some dye to colour it.
  3. Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.
  5. Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.
  6. Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.
  7. Leave there for at least 24 hours.
  8. Open the bag and see what you can do with it.

  1. After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.
  2. The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.

Gypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form.

When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.

A New Animal

I was running around the forest to find a rare animal. Instead I came across this animal. So I tried to give him some food, he ate it then he ran so I cased him until he stopped running.  I tried to make a food trail back, it worked so I took him home. When we got home I gave him some water but he did not drink it, he only drank milk!

The Accident Writing Experience week 8

Oh! My chin. Tyson! Tyson! What happened?  I split my chin open. Oh no we need to take you to the hospital also when we were in the car my hands tents up like a plank of wood. So we went to the hospital. The doctor said you need stitches. My face froze and my heart started to pound as fast as a running cheetah. So the doctor put me, mum, my sister, my friend and my sisters friend in a room also my voice sounded like a sqeewky toy. Then the doctor came in the room with the stitches but I didn't let him put them.  I went home and dad put them in at home. Also when he put them in my eyes closed as hard as a hummer.

Green Pastures Camp

My favourite activity was air rifles because I really enjoyed shooting the targets. I also liked the air rifles because I enjoyed practising my shooting skills. I also liked the air rifles because I really enjoy when I can have fun with things that you don't often play with. I also liked the air rifles because I enjoyed when I got to shoot the small chicken but I only hit it once.

Marble Experment T1 W6.

The marble experiment

Hypothesis: I think the marble will get bigger and stay at the top of the glass.

Materials: Water, a cup, marble made of special plastic.

  1. Get a small plastic cup.
  2. Put some water in the small cup.
  3. Put a special marble in the cup.
  4. Wait to see what happens.

1st The marble formed lots of littles air bubbles around it.
2nd The marble got bigger and became invisible.
3rd The marble got squishy and it got bouncier.
4th The marble soaked up all the water.

Results: As the marble got bigger it moved all the air bubbles
out of the way. Also as the marble got bigger it soaked up
all of the water.

Adaptation: If I had put dye into the water would it do the
same thing.

Te Reo Toondoo

In Room 1 and 2 we have been learning about greetings, feelings and farewells. We made a Toondoo about it. Here is mine.

Acrostic Poem

We went to Wellington to spend time with my family. 
Excited to spend time with my family.
Looks so amazing.
Liked the war convention at Te Papa.
I was super sore when we got home.
No one wanted to go to the beach.
Going to Wellington is very boring when you are driving because there is nothing to do. 
The last thing I did with my family was going to Te Papa to see the war convention.
On the way I ate Mc'Donalds and it was super yum.
Next time I go to Wellington I want to go to the zoo and see a lion.
