Proud Moments Term 2

Proud Moments Term 2

1. science fair 
I am proud of all the work I did on my science fair board even though it took me a long time to finish it. I enjoyed doing the testing and putting my science board together.

2. Maths
Geometry - was very good. I learnt that boats use geometry for the signals and you can use it in a table on a map like C4 and D2 coordinates to find things.

3. Spelling
I finally got past the list I had been working on. These two lists were N1 & N2. I also got past M3 & M4.

4.Tech Arts
In tech arts I did music and food tech. Even though I was not able to play at the showcase, I still had lots of fun learning how to sing properly and how to play the drums. In food tech, I learnt new skills like that you have always throw away the yuk bagging from meat because if you don't do this you will start to spread germs. I also learnt how to use some new cooking equipment.

5. Success!
I finally learnt how to swallow tablets. Mum started me of using mini M&M's then once I had got that she moved me onto TicTacs then after that I tried a real tablet. I was able to swallow the tablet.

How is Plastic Made?

How is Plastic made?

How is plastic made? Some people may wonder about that question. It starts from us drinking out of plastic containers and then put them the rubbish so they can be remade again into something else.

Firstly, the bottles have to go through an ultraviolet light that detects contaminants that means that it gets all the non plastic things, like soda*, water, and other things out.

Next, the plastic goes into a grinder rotary drum that will break the plastic down into small tiny pieces. That way it will be able to go into the paper separator,where it separates the paper from the plastic.

Then the plastic goes into a water bath that removes the toxins from the plastic chips. After the water bath, the plastic chips go to the rinse bath that rinses the chips clear of toxins so they can go into the heated dryer.

Finally, the plastic chips go through a heated dryer that dries the chips so they can be made into plastic bottles.

So now you know how the plastic bottle is recycled and made so you and I can have plastic bottles when essential but just a tip reuse the plastic bottles so we don’t have rubbish in landfills and our ocean.

*coke, lemonade, fanta, and more.

science fair

Science Fair Question 

My science fair question is how does music affect us mentally, I am going to  play different notes and songs to see what is the reaction that I get from girls and boys. I will make the notes sound sad, happy and in between, same with the songs as well. I will get one person at a time and play a sad and a happy note to see what reaction I get. I will  need 5 girls and 5 boy that will make 10 people altogether.

Integrity Game Day

Integrity Game Day

When we got to the spot we had to set up our game we had to go over to where we were going to get our group we had group H and they were o.k. but it took a long time for us to explain the game to them because they did not get in and when they got on the court we made it a bit harder so Ella and I started to do the chicken, up and down the net and if they hit us they lost a point for there team when they got four points they had to swoop sides and had to beat there our score. Group F were our best group they listened very well and they just did as they were tolled and did it straight away and they love how the game worked and they had lots of fun.
