My Science journal

01.05.2017.     Slime off!!!!!
Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data. 
Today all of our school’s classes made slime and tipped it on Mrs Anderson(our principal) for a slime-off. There were heaps of different types of slime from smooth slime to a big chunky slimes. I was one of the people that got to present our class’s slime and the name of our slime was “yellow smurf ”.
08.05.2017.     Balloon rocket !!!!!
Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment 
Today Jayden and I did a Balloon rocket experiment. Our best try at the balloon rocket experiment was 3m.65cm. We set up all of the equipment and tried out our first attempt at 1m.28cm Which is bad. The interesting thing about our experiment was that it would stop at the start, spiral and then go really fast but wouldn't reach the end. We used string so that's probably why.

Inquiry project

At the start of the term, my understanding of responsible citizenship was multistructural because I would pick up rubbish but not at the right time. (Multistructural means “I am able to understand several ideas but I miss their relationship to each other and the whole)

Now I am relational because I am able to link and integrate my ideas to create a coherent understanding the meaning.

I have done teaching younger kids how to play hockey, I pick up rubbish, I have proven myself trustworthy, and I follow the rules on the treaty.

It helps people to realise that if you teach people you will probably be a great R.C. because you are teaching people and sharing your skills with other people.

I faced some Challenge that were quite hard like when I had to manage some young kids that were being naughty by not listening and we're doing things that they shouldn't

I feel great because I helped people and I have made good friends and I have Proven myself trustworthy and I have been a great responsible citizen and it has been a great term and I have a great experience and head of me.

Are you a responsible citizen?

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

One of the most important things about a responsible citizen is that they follow rules and laws. For example a responsible citizen will pick up any rubbish they see to keep our community safe and clean. A person who follows the rules and laws is Miss Pageot (my lovely teacher) who follows the rules and laws really well, in fact she's one of the best people I know. For example she follows the Waimairi rules and laws like picking up rubbish as soon as she sees it like a vacuum cleaner. If people didn't do this Waimairi would be full of rubbish and it would smell like a pig and we would walk over rubbish every 10 milliseconds.

Overall, I think that being a helpful bystander and a person that follows rules and laws is very important because it keep us safe and our community would be clean☺️.

Hard out hockey

It was a cold foggy winter morning and I put my team uniform on and went downstairs and had breakfast. I walked to the car with my dad and brother and drove away to hockey. Thomas and I were the first ones there because our dad is the coach. When our team got to the hockey field we started to warm up. Even though I don't get the ball much, I still love playing hockey. We ended the warm up and got on to the field. I was striker and my brother was defender with Seb.The other team got to start. At half time and my dad/coach said we were doing really well because we were 5-3 up.I went on the field feeling confident and excited.  I went on the field and scored another three goals. We were 8-3 up now. We went off the field and celebrated at a restaurant My father,brother and I went home and celebrated with our family for the rest of the day.

I am Apollo 1

I am the Apollo 1, trying hard at challenges, to reach the unknown.
I am a sky tower, expanding to the sky, to touch the stars.
I am cosy, warm jacket, that warms me up like a heater.
I am a banana, tasty to eat.
I am a chicken wrap, short and skinny.
I am a warm blanket that keeps me warm in the freezing cold.
Ko Samuel ahau.
