Hide and seek

Hide and Seek 
1234… he started counting we all ran down stairs so we could get the best spots in the house.

 But I went outside yes I went where know living soul should go but I came out alive.

This is how it started it was a Friday night when I decided that I’m going to be the one that goes out of bounds. 

Because there’s alway someone that go to dead man's soul, I open the sliding door to go outside and that’s when it hit me. 

That he had been counting for over 30 seconds. I jumped into a bush and sat there for years!!! It was like 5 minutes but and then he says I know you're in the bush.
 He was talking to the wrong bush. I think he thought I was in the bush to the lift but it was just the dog hiding!!!.

When he went inside I moved spots .I went to the bush that the dog was in so then if he came out he wouldn’t look in the bush that the dog was in and even if I moved over a little he would just think it was the dog. 

He gave up and went inside and then it was tea time but I stayed outside in the bush and after tea I went inside and they all looked at me for along time and then everybody in the house said at the same time “where were you ??” I said I was in the bush with a smile….

Found art is when you use something that you or other people have around the house.



Trying again

At first I made this 

But somebody took it so I had to start again and I was almost done I had to make a new one lucky it looked the
same but all the time I put in it and when it was done I thought and I thought and then I thought one and a half weeks left I can do something better and I did.

I'm so glad that I thought and I thought and I did something way better.

Something I enjoyed was getting it done and I don't mean to say that just because I have nothing else to say but I'm glad that I got it done because I only had one week and a half and to have that finished product in the amount of time is so amazing.

Something I would change is to have a different plan to Jessika because they turned out very different and what we used was very different is well, for an example I spray painted mine and Jessika painted hers 

If there was someone I would do better it would be it look for more green paper because I didn't have enough green paper for the whole thing so I had to compromise and use what I had at the time 

Fly on the wall 
Larrisa,Jessika and I went to the Afternoon Programme and we took some photos

They were making with music in there space with things they could find around them just like most of us did.

Calendar Art 
It was a normal school day and all of a sudden Kiri just thought she could just come in here a say the we had to do calendar art and us being the kids we are had know choose. Well we did have a choice in what type of Art Calendar we wouldn't to do so we went off and we had to do a plan I decided to do Tie-dye.

What is a moment in time 
A moment in time is when you capture a photo the means  something to you or means something to somebody.

Drama 
So it all started when we started walking out to the fled with Danielle and she started saying things like be a dog do we would have to be a dog and Alex wasn't taking it seriously so we had to do it in front of room 16/17 and it was not fun and after that we went to room 12 and we had to get in a group of 2 and do something and they had to do what the card that Danielle 

Music
It all started when we sat down after the bell rang and we started getting put into groups I was in the first group with Kate and then all of a sudden started moving w are groups were and I stayed in room 13 and all the other people were gone so we started to talk about music like have you ever played a an instrument and then we started to get into groups of 5 and then we had to go around the class and started finding things the we could use to make music.

Our trip to town 
It all started on the first day of team three.
I was walking it to school when I remembered it was the day we were going to town :) go then I got to school and I put my bag on a hook and I went in sideout to line up at the bus,I was sitting next to Jessika of course.
We ended up getting dropped of at the art museum…..anyway most of our class went and sat on the bull but I didn't so instead my and some of my friends started to talk and that's when Kiri shut your pie holes “she didn't really say that it's just if I say that Kiri said shhh then you would go read someone else so I said pie hole”.......getting back on track we ended up going inside and we sat on the ground and listened to the people talk about all the things we could do and couldn’t do.  One thing we couldn’t do was walk on the right side of the staircase so anyway we walked around and looked at all the cool art and then we left. Something I enjoyed was looking at art the from around the world. Then we walk to the Margaret Mahy playground and something I enjoyed was playing hide and seek with most of the class.then we had lunch and we went for another play and we played and we played and then Kiri blew on her whistle and we all came running to her then we went into our groups and we walked around and looked at art on the streets. I really enjoyed just walking around we were hiding to the dance mat we Magen saw the love of her life a rock, and she took it with her and then that’s went Danielle said to put it back    and she was devastated…...anyway we went to the mat.

Money shot

I chose to take so many photos and put them in one because it has most of the school in it and Phoebe and I thought that the heart of Waimairi school is Waimairi school because without the kids and without Darren or the office it wouldn’t be Waimairi school.

Part 1 of mr speech

Well the February earthquakes in 2011 were different for everybody……. but I was going to Australia, I was excited,happy and nervous.


You're probably thinking why were you nervous, well I was nervous because when I was little I would watch movies of planes catching on fire and exploding, and me being that kid I was, I thought that the plane we went on was going on explode into 100,000 little pieces.

Ok this is how it started. We were in a dark red van with everyone going to Australia crammed in the back of the van and let's just say it was very cramped.

Then we arrived at the airport, it took us so long to find a park, it was not funny. Anyway we ended up getting a park. We had to use three of those cart things that you put your bags and suitcases on and again, me being that kid I was, I got my cousin to stop and I sat on all the bags and you know what happened... well I fell off and grazed my legs and they started to bleed. Luckily it wasn't too bad……

Then this lady said time to board if you're going to the Gold Coast, “that's us” my mum said. “That's our flight”, so we hopped on the plane and I fell asleep.

And all of a sudden I was woken up by this heavy metal music thanks Taane…..

Then we arrived at the hotel, there seemed to be a lot of pools. I remember there was some sort of cave and I wanted to go in the cave and pretend to be a cave woman but….. we had to wait till the morning…….
‘It’s the next morning and again, me being that kid I was, I woke up my cousin Kaya and her dad, and we went to the cave that had a hot tub in it.  We sat at 6 in the morning waiting for everyone else to come join us……...but they didn't come till the last person was awake, and ready………then they all joined us until  we went out for lunch. We packed a lunch and we went to a park close to our hotel and then we sat down…….then there were some huge red ants and they started to bite us or something because we had red marks all over our arms and legs……. so guess what we did?  We went to the pools and we had a swimming races with my brother, you should know Te Manea, and three of my cousins Taane, Jayda and Tailla and they all went to this school…...My mum didn't want us to go in the deep pool because well it was deep but we still did…….

If I had to talk about all the fun and happening things then you would be here a very long time, thank you.

Playground

Plan for playground  4,7,17

I'm designing a playground to show force with Brooklyn.
We haven't started because we were working so hard on our plan that we didn't get started.
A struggle I'm encountering is getting it started.
An improvement I need to make is starting my model playground because we only have three days until we have to have been done.
My next step is to paint the cardboard with green paint.

What we need 
My steps 
Toilet roll
Hot glue sticks 
Hot glue gun 
String 
Crazy straws 
Popsicle sticks 
Small tire 
Coloured paper 
Paint 
Cardboard 
Skewers 
What we need 
Paint the cardboard 
Make the jungle gym 
Make tire for tire swing 
Make flying fox 
Tree trunk and Leaves for the tree 
Stick jungle gym on the cardboard 
Stick the tire swing on the tree and stick the tree on the cardboard 
Stick flying fox on the cardboard 
Add details with vivid 
Add the decorations
Make spinny thing 
Glue spinny thing on 

Science


Week 8 Gravity 

Gravity makes objects fall which is why gravity is so important so than the cotton ball will land on the ground .Gravity has a lot to do with catapults it has as much as push and pull does Because if we didn't have enough gravity then we would be floating and so would the cotton ball. Gravity pulls things to the centre of the earth which is why things fall.
Push and pull slows things down and makes things go faster or slower than It once did.
Motion is movement and catapults have a lot to do with movement 
Today with science we did a graph on how far the cotton ball will go 
With as many rubber bands were wrapped around the cotton ball.

The green lines show the test with one cotton ball
The red lines show the test with three cotton ball 
The one cotton ball test went further on the 6th test than the cotton ball test with three cotton ball. I think that the cotton ball went further than the the cotton ball with three because if you have too much weight on your catapult then it won’t go as far but if you have just enough weight it will go further than when you have to much weight.


I think that anything has some things to do with gravity such as when you walk it has something to do with gravity because when you walk gravity pulls you down, so it has pull and gravity. Even typing has something to do with gravity because you are pushing the buttons 

I wonder that if we used Graph paper if it would look that much different and maybe if we know where exactly where the cotton ball went then we would have a better graph and it would be a harder challenge.


Week 7
What we did 
Phoebe and I made a golf course 
Out of shapes,wood,phone paper and books 
8 people did our golf course 
Emily got 6 on both times, Sam got 5, Brooklyn got, Sean got 9, Savannah got 4, Megan got 10 , Vanessa got 8 and larissa got 4 on her first time and then she got 7 on her second time 

I had to go to library for a class 9-10 so I wasn't here for that long and I was late to go so I didn't get to make the golf course but I did get to do it 

What I found out 
I found out that if you add too much force you will lose connection of the ball and it won't go where you want it to but if you don't add enough connection it will aso not go where you want it to go 
But if you add just enough forces it will go where you want it to go 

What I wonder 
I wonder why some People could complete it in 4 and why some people complete it in 10 





Week 7 
What i did 
Catapults we had to fire from the same place every time and we had to write it down It down in our book and each time we would have to put on one more rubber band

What I found out
When I got up to the fourth rubber band on the cotton ball it wouldn't go as far as it would with no rubber bands on it 

What I wonder 
I wonder if we use water tape and see if it changes how far it goes 
Of if we do it when there is know whined if it would go faster,slower,further and not as far 


Week 6 
What I did 
phoebe and I did ping pong ramps it was hard to find where to do it 
We used a Roller, chair,tn bucket , books and a pillow 
What I found out
 i found out that if you push it too hard it would go everywhere 
What I wonder 
I wonder that if you change the type of ball if it would go as fast 


Week 5
What I did 
We had the choice of three  activity they were ping pong ramp ,basketball Bounce  and chari pulley.
I chose ping pong ball because I wanted to find out if the way I made it would change the speed of the ping pong ball.
I use roller x2,books x3 and a tin can X1.
I worked with Phoebe.

What I found out 


Assuming that the experiments are properly "controlled", that is, everything but the ball type is the same, then what is different is how much energy is lost in the ball. Ping-pong balls are very stiff and springy -- they lose only a small fraction of their energy when they bounce on a hard surface. On a soft, squishy surface, the ping-pong ball may bounce less well (but then again, the other balls may bounce less well also). Some surfaces are very complicated, like a mattress. If you drop a ping-pong ball from a meter’s height on a mattress, it will probably lose almost all of its energy in the cloth and padding and not bounce much at all. If you drop a basketball or a heavy steel sphere, then the mattress springs become more important and some energy will be returned to the ball and it will probably bounce higher than the ping-pong ball. But against a hard surface, ping-pong balls do very well (and if the surface is very hard and solid, the steel sphere might do even better, if it doesn’t chip or break the surface first, as it might if the surface is made of concrete or tile). 
I got this off a website https://van.physics.illinois.edu/qa/listing.php?id=90 
In my words 
the small amount of air creates energy and speed 
Throw the small ping pong ball 


Science blog
 Week 4

I have designed  rocket balloons and catapults 

I found out that that if you use less tape and more rubber bands your cotton ball will go further, and if you blow air into the balloon and let it go that would make the balloon goes up the string 

I wonder if the catapult was made with more materials would it go a different speed of length and would the balloon go faster or slower if the wind picked up
