2017 speech

Have you ever had one of those times where technology let’s you down at a bad time, a really bad time.

You know when you go up to the sliding door at the supermarket and they don't open. So you do a dance, then someone walks up and the door opens for them. You just sit there scratching your head thinking about why the door opened for them but not you.

Now for a funny story, who here knows about electric spinning doors? One time I was walking down the road towards the  gigantic Vodafone building with my funny Dad and irritating Sister. I press a button next to the door and walk in, but it just stops. I'm stuck in there, my only hope is to wait for Dad, so I waited and waited,
and waited till. Finally he walks into my sight, slowly getting closer till eventually Dad walks up he leans over and presses the button. The door slowly maneuvers into action. I hop out of the way, “At least  that over”. There are many other examples out there but that would take hours to explain.

Science Journal

Week 1.
 Slimming Mr Anderson at Monday morning meetup. . We used food colouring water and cornflower. We put it on Mr Anderson it oozed down his body. We were Learning how cornflour and water is  runny but hard when you push on it.

Week2.
 Making balloons rockets with straws, wool, balloons. We started out just using short and straight wool‍‍ then we stacked the chairs and lifted them onto the table but left the other chair on the ground to change the angle. the downward force helped it go faster. Our learning what forces were acting on the rocket the forces that were acting on the rocket were the air pressure coming out of the balloon and the stationary air in front of the balloon.

Week3.
  I was at zones cross Country but I wonder whether the fishing line Would work better than the wool but paper instead of straws wouldn't work as well as straws.

Week4.
We did the trebuchet a trebuchet works when there's a weight at one end and a ball at the other end. Pulling the string, gravity pulls the weight down and the other end gos flying up the ball comes speeding past. I am multistructural on the rubric because i have lots of ideas

Science Journal 6.

For this rotation we made paper parachute they didn’t go well. I wonder if the cardboard heavier than paper. I am multistructkural on the rubric.


Science Journal 7.

This time we made paper helicopters. We started out by watching a tutorial on how to make the helicopters. They came down slowly I wonder if I made it bigger the helicopters wo spin down slower. I am multistructural on the rubric because i have lots of ideas.

Inquiry reflection

In He Tangata this term we have been focusing on being a responsible citizen.Rachel, Riley, Finn, Charlie, Harry, Tom, and I decided to do a project Time Banking to teach people how to be a responsible scientist. Time Banking is where you work for one hour then you spend that hour for someone to do something for you. I think I’m  extended abstract because I teach others in our community and I can show others how teach Time Banking. I’m proud of the outcome of this project and how much people are involved. What I would do differently would be to make it across the whole school not just the year 5 and 6 . I think my next step is to spread it out to the year 1,2,3, and 4. Overall I think it went well and I hope it carries on for years to come.
